The Thing and Jonny Quest



This is one of those covers where I got lucky and the images really fit well together. Even so, it was kind of a shame that I had to remove Jonny and Hadji's lady friend to make room for Bashful Benjy. Dave Stevens really did draw some of the most beautiful women in comics (not that his talents were limited to females). When he passed, comicdom truly lost one of the all time great artists.

I'd still love to see a live action Jonny Quest feature someday. It's a property that has all the elements to make an exciting tale full of mystery, action and cliffhangers. Maybe some day...

I'd hate to see one made now. Jonny would hate his father, probably be goth and they would make Hadji a girl. Dr. Quest would be a drunk or worse...
Quest was such a product of it's time that updating it has never worked. they will probably keep trying and failing as well.
great cover though! since Hanna-Barbera produced both shows, they sort of crossed over with voice talent and music back then.

What have you thought of "Jonny's" guest appearances on The Venture Brothers?

Missed that one... I tried Venture Brothers but I just couldn't get into it.
