Let's croak us some Toads!

Does anyone remember Bucky O'Hare and the Toad Wars? It was kind of the jam in 1991. Looks at first glance like a Star Fox knock off or Ninja Turtles cash in, but the original comic it was based on predated both (okay, it was in stores the same month as TMNT #1, but still). The cartoon was canceled too quickly but it managed to spawn an awesome toyline and an even better NES game before it died. Drawing these guys is insanely fun.

Likely going to have a few prints of this available at FanExpo at the end of the month. Sort of a niche thing, but I figure if a couple Bucky fans do pass by--who are they to resist it?

Thanks, Khanh! Yeah, Bucky was pretty popular in my town with the kids my age, and it seems like it was all across Canada as well. YTV's doing, I guess? Shame it never lasted.

I'll be piking up this print at FanExpo for sure!
