March Modok Madness 2013

FIRST_MODOK_2013

It’s that time of year again when Messrs. Brendan Tobin and Pedro Delgaro mindblast the interweb with their gruesome gallery of swollen-headed scoundrelism, March Modok Madness. Now in it’s sixth year, M.M.M. collects the depraved scribblings of maladjusted handicrafters from across the globe (all no doubt in the employ of AIM) and pays homage to one of Kirby’s most bizarre creations the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing. Should you have no shame and wish to contribute then M.M.M. will be accepting submissions for the rest of the month at the address below.

Rob’s source material for his portrait comes from an unpublished Machine Man page (click to enlarge). Rob writes, “The character in the 3rd panel is Dr. Peter Spalding. I thought he looked a little like Jack with his pipe so I added inks.”
