EXCLUSIVE: Slapstick #3 Variant Homages Classic Animation Styles

When it comes to cartoon-styled violence, nobody does it better than Marvel Comics’ Deadpool… nobody except Slapstick, that is.

That’s probably part of the reason ‘Pool hired the ‘toon come to life for his Mercs for Money crew. But when that gig went south, Slapstick found himself directionless, living once more in his parents’ basement and looking for a path in life — even if that meant cat fishing people in Deadpool’s name for mercenary gigs.

As the digital-first Infinite Comic series from writer Fred Van Lente and artist Diego Olortegui rolls on, CBR has the exclusive first look at Olortegui’s variant cover for the series’ third print issue. The cover, which you can check out below, homages a number of classic animation styles — can you name all the cartoons it references?
