09192014 Hooked


Hook is one of my favorite movies EVER. I think to needed to be around 10 or 12 years old to really appreciate it when it first came out; the critics hated it, but who the hell cares what they thought? Hook gave us Dustin Hoffman in his greatest role ever. Yes, greater than Rain Man. I’ve been thinking about (and watching) Hook a lot lately, because we’ve lost two of it’s principal actors this year: first Bob Hoskins, who played Mr. Smee, and then Robin Williams, who played Peter Pan.

This strip is mostly a recreation of one of my favorite scenes from that movie (although any of the scenes with Captain Hook are my favorites, really). So we’ve got Apsara as Captain Hook and Winslow as Mr. Smee, while Ben is standing in for Peter Pan and Quentin and Kurt are standing in as Jack and Maggie. This was a huge pain in the ass to draw. The Captain Hook costume is incredibly elaborate, and I haven’t done it justice by half. And that cargo net was crazy detailed, too. Whew!

Also, it’s Talk Like a Pirate Day. Almost like I planned things this way, right?


Andrew Kaye (known in some circles as AK) is the creator of Ben & Winslow and other questionable comics, many of which can be found in his deviantART gallery and his Tumblr. He’s also the editor-in-chief of this magazine. Duh?
