Sesame Street one pager by JayFosgitt Sesame Street one pager by JayFosgitt
Ape Entertainment got the rights to produce a Sesame Street comic book awhile back, and I was one of many comic creators brought on to work on it. This is a one page story I wrote and drew for issue #1. I was only told to pick a Sesame Street character and have the story deal with using your imagination. I chose to use the Count because he's one of my favorite characters, and I made a point to slip in the late, great Jerry Nelson (the Count's original performer) as the used car salesman. Jerry passed away the day before I got the call that I was accepted to work on the book, and as I am a lifelong fan of The Muppets, it seemed like the touch of fate somehow.

I always got a kick out of how stately and noble they make the Count look with that monocle. After all, he is a count (royalty and all)!

Great job! And in the family-friendly spirit of the show, too!

This is a fun little comic and a lovely nod to Jerry as well

Your style works very well for the muppets; very authentic. My only disappointment is the Count-Car, which I would have expected more like a "Wacky Racer"-style machine.
;P

I was limited to using a car design that Sesame Workshop approved, based off previous designs from their children's books.

That's understandable, but unfortunate... I'm sure that you could develop a awesome concept car for the Count that would look like a design collaboration between the Groovy Ghoulies and the Batmobile.

My wife and I picked up the Free Comic Book day issue of Sesame Street and found it adorable. We're planning on picking up more of the series as 1) we have a little boy who'll be reading comic books soon enough and he's sure to love it, and 2) I, too, am a wild Muppet fan who refuses to grow up.
