I particularly like Swamp Thing’s Popeye arms.

So I received a letter at the shop yesterday from the possibly-pseudonymous “Sluggo Jr.” who, inspired by my most recent Swamp Thing/Sluggo mash-up post, sent along a page crammed on either side with pencil drawings, sometimes featuring best pals Swampy ‘n’ Sluggo teaming up, sometimes just Sluggo facing menaces on his own (like fighting a knife-wielding Charlie Brown and a bat-wielding Henry).

Here are a couple of samples:

I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone do the “Cranius middle-finger” joke before. Well done.

I was only going to scan those two for now, due to time constraints — I’ve been working long hours, as you might imagine — but I just glanced again at the paper and have to present this one, too:

I could read about the adventures of Sluggo and Swamp Thing all day. Thank you, Sluggo Jr., for your fine contribution to the arts.

    Mysterious! My theory is that Sluggo Jr. is a ghost haunting your new location. As long as you are willing to put up with occasional strange noises and things moving around without being seen, and the suspicious disappearances of employees/customers who claim not to believe in ghosts, you will be rewarded with regular Sluggo-Swamp Thing mash-up drawings in the mail. Sounds like a good deal!
