I've written a long blog post over at my blog about the making of this drawing but I'll paste a small part of that story here:

"...I’m a big fan of Spider-Ham.

See, Peter Porker: The Spectacular Spider-Ham #15 was the first comic book I’d ever bought when I was in middle school. I bought it at a Circle K near my house.

I’d had comics when I was a little kid but there was something about having bought the comic myself that made me really own it.

Also, I picked it myself for myself and that made a big difference. It looked fun and silly.

Once I read it, I wanted more and I went back for more. They eventually cancelled the book but had short eight page Spider-Ham back up stories on some Marvel Tales comics, which featured Spider-Man.

I picked those up for the Spider-Ham back ups but eventually ended up reading the Spider-Man stories also. They hooked me and I’ve been reading superhero comics ever since.

This it the first time I’ve ever drawn Spider-Ham and I couldn’t help feeling nostalgic the whole time. It was fun. I hope you like it as much as I liked drawing it."

This is an amazing homage! Great work... Although I'm not familiar with the Superman spoof character.

@sora_thekey: Thank you.

Yeah, Captain Carrot hasn't gotten much love from DC lately.

@luisescobar: I was disappointed in the last Captain Carrot three issue series. Was hoping for a lot more.
