I Love Ya But You’re Strange – What if Charlie Brown Turned Into a Giant Cockroach?

Every week, I will spotlight strange but ultimately endearing comic stories (basically, we’re talking lots and lots of Silver Age comic books). Here is the archive of all the installments of this feature. Feel free to e-mail me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com if you have a suggestion for a future installment!

Today we look at the absolutely brilliant R. Sikoryak’s Masterpiece Comics, where he tells a classic story from literature done in the style of a famous comic book or comic strip. Specifically, we’ll take a look at Kafka’s The Metamorphosis, told in the style of Charles Schulz…

The Metamorphosis is a chilling tale of a young traveling salesman named Gregor who wakes up one day to find that he has transformed into a giant insect. The rest of the story tells how this change affects the man and his family (things don’t go particularly well).

Sikoryak decides to tell the story as if this was yet another problem of Good Ol’ Gregor Brown…



Ins’t that awesomely twisted?

Masterpiece Comics is filled with stories that are just as brilliantly told as this one, and most of them are just as disturbingly and hilariously strange.
