Avatar Parody 1 by rufftoon Avatar Parody 1 by rufftoon
A companion piece to this one -

Trying to be as faithful to the spirit of Leo Ortolani's Rat-Man comic...and that means all the characters are just a little bit "dumber" than usual, heehee!
Retelling the discovery of the boy in the iceberg.
Just hope I made it justice.

Ink an Photoshop.

all characters belong to Mike and Bryan, and Nickelodeon. The Rat-Man style is all Leo Ortolani's. I just made the weird mix of the two.

I worked a bit over 6 months in Italy a few years ago and wanted to (try) and read some Italian comics. Rat-Man was definitely my fave of them all.

Ah ah ah! Nice!
How do you know Leo Ortolani by the way? Are you Italian too?
XD
Just being curious, because I thought that Ratman was sold only in Italy.

rufftoon Featured By Owner May 5, 2010
I'm not Italian, but I lived there for about 6 months (no, don't ask me to write or speak Italian, ha ha!). Friends introduced me to Leo's books and I fell in love with his work. Such great comedic timing!
I ordered a few Ratman books from Italy when I returned to Canada, but it's been years now. As far as I know, it is impossible to find outside of Italy. What a shame.
I am soooo behind on my Ratman collection! Augh!!
