  2. How cool would it be to run the entire Casper universe through this filter? Those are stories I would read.

  10. I agree with all of the above. Definitely one of the best "Covered" entries yet.

    I would TOTALLY buy Casper if he looked like that.

  12. OK, now let's see this type of take on Hot Stuff, Baby Huey, Richie Rich, etc....

  13. Mmm! close, I think wendy's costume would be a little more goth, don't you think.

  14. Excellent "cover". As others have said, one of the best that's been done.

  15. Dang! I would subscribe to a Wendy comic if she looked like that. Though Casper don't look too friendly.

  16. The ghost is fantastic but dunno about the witch, face a bit too 'cartooney' for the rest of the image maybe?

  18. Oh look, more sexualization of female characters from children's media of decades past.

    Sorry, but your comment doesn't hold water. She is an icon open to interpretation. She isn't in a bikini or anything. I would think an adult Wendy is fair game. It is in good taste and is well done.
    You grew up didn't you? Allow her the same respect as she's probably older than you anyway:)

  20. Great concept, but this has already been done as Casper & The Spectrals from four years ago, and with a slightly older (to about the ages of 12-14) Casper, Wendy, and Hot Stuff.

  21. I imagine a horrific, yet friendly Casper who aids a group of young, socially relevant occult investigators in their crusade against the dark powers.
