Fucking SWEET. Now this is an Akira "remake" concept I could get behind seeing.

Man, I wish I could read this version of Akira.
It's weird how well the kirby style fits this story.

The rough textures and bright colours, suit the retro look so well.

Great one!  A Kirby adaption of Akira would've been great...or, at least, very strange.

Is it all possible that you could draw another picture in Jack Kirby style but with DC characters? That'd be pretty cool

i guess it is possible... just have a to dream up the right situation i guess?

My friend made that blog. It was from a long standing realization. He just noticed it one day and started ribbing our other friend, who is super in love with Kirby, and then rubbed it in some more by making a blog. It was such a good laugh and still is.

I keep telling him to update it because damn did Kirby not like to draw ears!

haha i showed my friends too... i never ever realized that.. 
mind was blown!
we must dig deeper and get to the bottom of this...

i think people look better without ears anyways... who needs em!

I more than kinda like it... it's just... shocking. I saw the thing in the comic site and stuff... It's a big shock, brah. you know?

I think it's much more of a shock when you turn anime into western than the other way around, yours was by far the best bra.

i think some western into anime is kind of cool... 
but sometimes it just gets overdone and weird...
