This is another piece of pre-Turtles art by me and Kevin Eastman, done back in 1983 when we were having fun goofing on some of our favorite characters from comics and movies. This was my version of what might happen if C-3PO from the "Star Wars" movies ever ran afoul of the steel-smashing hands of "Magnus, Robot Fighter" from the old Gold Key comics. I penciled this one (on coquille board), and Kevin inked it and added the tones.
The "Magnus" comics, as drawn by the incredible Russ Manning, were a big influence on me -- I especially loved the way he drew the robots. You can see this influence in the design of the Fugitoid. -- PL
