Space Cabbie 2.0

Posted by: on Jan 25, 2011 | 4 Comments

I love board games. I fell in with a group of like-minded souls soon after moving to the patchouli-infested paradise that is Northampton, MA. It’s weird to be among people who are already “into” board games; I don’t have to explain it to them. In fact, they explain things to me.

Among them is David Lartigue, who has a very funny blog and an interesting take on the Great Star Wars Controversy. He asked me for a sketch of Space Cabbie, a lesser-known Silver Age DC character. I re-imagined The Cabbie for a hip, new alterna-teen audience. Because that’s what comic book writers do.

In the name of full disclosure, I used a lightbox.

Doing the sketch reminded me of a friend from my old gym in Queens, Sim. He’s a Sikh, and an aircraft mechanic at LaGuardia. Built like a Sherman Tank, the sort of chap you’d want to be next to in a foxhole. Hope you’re well, Sim.

    You HAVE to start scripting this.

    Hah! Looks kind of like “SPACE CABBLE”, huh?

    It could definitely be resurrected, even as a one-shot. And definitely with a sense of humour.

    Not gonna lie, Rob, I’ve thought about it…
