Mobile Organism Designed Only for Cooking

.

A couple of months ago, New York Comic Con descended on the West Side of Manhattan like the spearhead of an invasion of happy fans from another universe where life is more colorful and a whole lot more fun. One of my proudest moments came when I got a text from Ryan Dunlavey (the artist on the cookbook) showing me a commission someone had just paid him to draw. The drawing?

.

.

.

Normally, commissions are things like Wonder Woman and Aquaman giving an erotic massage to a dolphin with a mink glove, but in this case it was me…fighting MODOK. Who is MODOK? Why, only the original Mobile Organism Designed Only for Killing.

.

.

The big-headed bully has become a comedy icon recently.

.

.

In no small part thanks to our very own Ryan…

.

.

And now I’m a comic book character. I can only hope that fetish commissions¬† of me in compromising positions with a mushroom are next!
