KND vs DCFDTL

So along with the sooper fun 6 or 8 page KND stories we do for DC Comics ACTION PACK, there's another little thing we do them. It's called called 'KND vs DCFDTL'. They're simple one page stories with no dialogue... kind of an homage to Mad Magazine's 'Spy vs Spy'. We try to get a different artist to do each set of 3 pages and they're allowed to draw the KND however they like. The crazier the better!

In addition to mega-talented KND stalwarts like Maurice Fontenot, Kim Arndt, Mike Cavallaro, and Children's Book Hero Mo Willems, we've had amazing artists like indy comic sooperstar Peter Bagge (Hate, Apocalypse Nerd) and Todd Nauck (Wildguard, Teen Titans Go!, Friendly Neighborhood Spider Man) and Phil Moy (Legion of Super-Heroes)! Even KND fan art favorite Scott Benson got to do an awesome set! At this point, i think we've had at least 60,000 different artists do some KND vs DCFDTL comics... or at least 25.

I don't have a lot of images handy... but here are a bunch of the rough pencils along with some color scans!

MAURICE FONTENOT (rough pencil)
this one's STILL one of my favorites... that title panel makes me swoon.



TODD NAUCK (rough pencil)
i love love lOVE seeing the DCFDTL drawn so REAL!

PETER BAGGE (rough pencil)
how cool is it to see Numbuh Three drawn in that classic Bagge style?



SCOTT BENSON (rough pencil)
I've made no secrets about how I feel about Reiko-san's art. Utsukushii ne?!



PHIL MOY (color scan)
Hippo's rule.



MO WILLEMS (inked page)
For me, Mo's style is like peanut butter... it tastes great with ANYTHING.
(Mo hates peanut butter, by the way. And ketchup.)




If any of you out there wanna draw your own KND vs DCFDTL, go for it and maybe we can post 'em up!

Those are so cool and funny! I, however, have little to no artistic talent, so I don't think that I could draw one of my own... though I might give it a shot anyway. (I wouldn't want to totally butcher drawing the KND, though!!) Oh well, I'll try anyway and see how it turns out... if it's not completely horrible I might send it in... :)

kidsnextblog: Re: KND vs. DCFDTL

to tell the truth... i haven't drawn even one of the KND vs. DCFDTL comics- i've only written them. so if you can't draw... write one and find someone to draw it. here's an example of a script:

operation: BARREL
across top of page:
title: KND vs DCFDTL (spell out what they stand for underneath) in Operation: B.A.R.R.E.L.
(Brats Actually Reach River's Elevated Ledge)
Title panel: A barrel with a sign tacked to it that reads, 'Kids Next Door Secret Hideout'. (note: We should NOT see the bottom of the barrel.)
note: title's should be drawn not set!

panel 1: Numbuh Five pops her head out of the barrel and looks around

panel 2: She sneaks out and off frame with a devilish smile on her face

panel 3: The DCFDTL sneak into frame with their ray gun.

panel 4: They climb into the barrel

panel 5: The barrel moves to the right

panel 6: The barrel moves farther and the DCFDTL poke their heads out and see something off screen

panel 7: Wide shot of a grand waterfall as the tiny silhouette of the DCFDTL (in the barrel) plunges off the side. a couple of the KND poke their heads into frame laughing

DCFDTL SFX: AAAIIIIIIIII!
KND SFX: BWA HA HA HA!

see? easy!

Those are SO AWESOME! XD The DC have always been some of my favourite characters, so I love seeing them in comics and stuff. But a WHOLE SERIES OF DC VS. KND? 8D Somebody should have told me about this a LONG TIME AGO!

And my favourite is still Scott's stuff. X3 I still can't get over the fact that Mr. W speaks Nihongo. Man, could he BE any cooler?

I should totally draw one of these--it's good that they're all in different styles, because my drawings of DC in KND style = cover your eyes, for the love of all goodness, cover your eyes.
