Mad Men comics
could be a wonderful thing if anyone ever decided to publish a vintage-style adaptation of the show. Until that day comes, however, we'll have to depend on insightful creators like the ones collaborating at Periscope Studio
. Like Hayao Miyazaki's characters
and other sketch themes that have come before at Periscope, Mad Men
attracted a nice lineup of contributions, and the art is snazzy.
Steve Lieber, for instance, etched out some text-ready strips that make Don Draper look right at home in ink and Zip-A-Tone. The Periscope Tumblr account
also features a beautiful Red Ryder BB Gun ad by Jonathan Case and a handful of other vice-laden entries.
Ron Chan, Jesse Hamm and their fellow artists got the job done, and you can even pick up a print of Natalie Nourigat's Joan and Roger print at Periscope's Etsy store
if you take a notion. Enjoy them all slowly as you would a nice martini below.
