    hey thanks for boinging me!
    as for scooby and steampunk being stale, good thing those are just 2 of the hundreds of things i do. why don’t you invite us into your flickr portfolio so we can see the groundbreaking, next gen concepts you are birthing, broken fingers?

  3. thechicgeek says:

    @danlalan I think that might be a reference to the original Lost Boys movie where the Grandpa at the end drives through a wall and drives an enormous stake through the heart of the head vampire, thereby saving all the infected from a life of vampirism.

    I’m at least hoping that’s what the giant stake is for.

    @thechicgeek- that’s exactly what i was trying to reference- good call! :)

    This is fabulous, but has been done before.

    I remember an awesome strip in a British comic in the late 80s (2000 AD? Crisis?) which had the Mystery Machine in a vampire-infested post-apocalyptic Russia. Fred was a cigar-chewing cynic, I think Velma had an exe-patch… I think it ran for one or two episodes only, and the names were probably changed for copyright reasons. Was it part of the Zenith universe? Hmmm…

    Anyone remember more?

      adamstjohn, it’s Red Razors you’re thinking about, the original run from the Judge Dredd “Megazine”. It was drawn by Steve Yeowell so that would explain your thinking it part of the Zenith universe.

    I love it, and think Broken_Fingers is just being your run of the mill whiny free ice cream complainer.

    This is brilliant. I love the stenciled MISERY and the gear on top. The only possible thing I might have done differently is to have the RIP marking add each letter one at a time. Like the original painting was “RIP S”, then have “+F” added beside it, with “+D” scrawled in below, just to increase the sense of a progressing backstory.

    I hope that’s not rude, to make a comment on a finished work…

  9. lava says:

    ah yes – the Lost Boys tree trunk stake slam remains one of the more spectacular ways to dispatch a vampire, ‘fact I think Velma invented it…

  10. cinemajay says:

    I feel like I saw this before Zombieland came out, brilliant though!

    There’s no such thing as vampire pterodactyls. There has to be a logical explanation…

    I woulda boinged it sooner but it was marked “all rights reserved” on Flickr and I didn’t want to get a legal threat for blogging it!

    an l4d scooby doo mod would just own.

    then there is the one-off ‘Groovy and the Gang’ from Venture Bros:

    On the side of the van “R.I.P. S + F + D”

  17. dr. monster says:

    the final, two chainsaw slotted and repositioned version was submitted to threadless.com and can be seen here.
    i wish i could have been boing’d while this was up for voting! :)


    all in all, it scored pretty good though. they hold the rights to print it for 90 days after the scoring ended, i believe.

    Zombies, Scooby Doo, and mashups are stale. Also, steampunk.

    • Cory Doctorow says:

      How about entitled killjoy whining? Does that ever get stale? Or is it evergreen?

      • broken_fingers says:

        Nothing “entitled” about it, just pointing out the obvious. No offense intended.

        • Cory Doctorow says:

          “The obvious?” You mean that there’s an objective reality in which matters of taste are factually correct and incorrect, and you have access to this realm? And that you are retrieving this fact for the benefit of the rest of us, who are factually incorrect in enjoying these things that you dislike, so that we can be corrected and discover what we *should* enjoy?

          And that’s not “entitled?”

          How about “whining” and “killjoy”?

          I’d hate to see what you’re like when you’re intending offense.

    On the other hand, making Velma hot will never get old.

  20. benher says:

    Finally, some vindication for my Velma fetish!

  21. Anonymous says:

    The wooden stakes and the cross on Velma’s neck suggest vampires. Possibly Steampunk ones, of course…

  22. Random_Tangent says:

    Threadless submission is here. Voting is closed, but showing some internet love got the the 3 Keyboard Cat Moon shirt printed in a hurry.

    Travis Pitts is my favorite threadless artiste. I’m still trying to finagle a print of his Rockabilly Joker/Harley-Quinn out of him.

    Damn, I might almost have to buy it if (when) Threadless picks it up.

    Weird timing. My next two social camps are zombie themed and The Mystery Machine themed. I wonder if there is a way to combine the costumes so I just have to make one.

  26. andygates says:

    Finally, a paintjob for my camper van!

  27. Clifton says:

    You know Velma would be the survivor.

  28. The Morgan says:

    Wow, Velma is smokin’. What is it about a girl with a shotgun that makes me go all aquiver? Bit worried about those scratches though, I suppose one can hope that she’s immune.

    I so want this as a shirt. I can think of at least 3 people who must own this.
