TRDL 2013 Series, No. 37 – Doop [X-Statix] X Ghostbusters

This one was done for the TRDL Art Jam, the subject being Doop, from X-Force/X-Statix during the Allred period. I always loved this random character. It’s a green floating warty jellybean speaking in an unknown tongue that only Wolverine understands. At first blush I thought these indie creators were taking the piss, but I grew to look forward to each of his appearances, especially in post-X-Statix books where he’d just randomly show up roaming the Mansion with some specialized educational skillset. I think the last one I saw he was a gym teacher. Anyway, I decided to dovetail this one with another jam: Ghostbusters. The idea hit me pretty suddenly, and the sketch rough I show in the process notes I doodled at 3am or something, after one of my kids was flipping out about black bears roaming their bedroom. Anyway, there you go! Doop X Ghostbusters.
