Apocaleech Now by Buuya Apocaleech Now by Buuya
AKA: Apocalypse Ow
AKA: Any other horribly lame, vaguely pun-like title.

You know when you get a very strange image in your head and it just BEGS to be made into a web comic? Well, this was one of them :)

Apocalypse Now is one of my favorite movies, and Benjamin Willard is pretty much one of the most badass dudes around... but nobody can stand leeches o__o

That's what you get for wallowing around in the muddy river, dammit! ;)

God, I hate leeches.

I'm happy with the colouring on this one. It gloooooows. Painting the mud was fun :D

Also: is it just me, or is (young) Martin Sheen wonderfully attractive? Well, for a shorter guy :)

THE HORROR, THE HORROR!

Full view pleeeeeease :aww: . Do it for the puppy!

it's not just you. it was kind of weird, too, since he's all... y'know... OLD now.

also: just combine both puns into one glorious title. Apocaleech Ow. Yowza, that's just mind-boggling.

Apocaleech Ow! Haha, the badpun-osity, it makes me weak at the knees :XD:

He is old now. Well, old enough. Unfortuantely, Charlie Sheen is not as foxy, lol.

I think I can say without a doubt that this is the first Apocalypse Now fan-art/parody I've seen on DA. Also one of my favorite movies of all time, I watch it anytime I want to simulate the sensation of being on some really expensive crack.

I full viewed for the comic itself, though I do love the puppy. :<
I think you replicated the creepiness of that scene pretty well in the second panel. Though the third...man, I just burst out laughing. xD

*shudder*.. I have a phobia of leeches.. if this ever happened to me i'd probably end up ripping the skin off my arm. I like the colour and mood this piece has, very dramatic!

:lmao: Aww man, this is great! I could see him at that part when he's coming up out of the water towards the end, and he's trying to be all dramatic. And then LEECHES! Kurtz would probably die laughing. XD

I love this, and also love Apocalypse now (even if it is freakishly long =p )

And you're right, young Martin Sheen is actually quite attractive :D
Have you seen the redux version?
