Mash-Up: Charles M Schultz - Ben Boxer and Dr. Canus

Charles M. Schultz and 
Ben Boxer and Dr. Canus

(I would like to acknowledge and thank Paul Montgomery from iFanboy for the idea of the Charles M. Schultz and Kamandi Mash-Up.)

It's Ben Boxer from the "Kamandi" series as I imagine Charles M. Schultz would do it.  Ben Boxer, and other humans in Kamandi's time, had a "Cyclo-Heart" and if the circle above the heart is pressed, he became covered in an indestructible metal shell and looking almost like the Silver Surfer.  Cool stuff!

Here is the pen and ink drawing, cleaned up in PhotoShop

Here is Dr. Canus, also from "Kamandi".  He was a talking, humanoid dog... and a scientist.  In his case, he literally thought he was the leader and the humans were the pets.  So, in Jack Kirby's future, I guess dogs become just like cats are today.

Here is the pen and ink drawing, which was cleaned up in Photoshop.

This was done with pen and ink on coated laser printer paper and colored digitally in Photoshop.
