THE GOONIES
   The Cast  IMDb Rotten Tomatoes

Since watching THE GOONIES on VHS back in the summer of 86 at 12 years old, I have always wanted to recreate that magical feeling through a comic book. I'd pause the movie scene by scene, cut by cut to draw them out. Resulting in a stack of paper with four panels of rough sketches on each side. By the 10 minutes mark of the movie, I simply gave up haha... but I distinctly remember drawing Sloth and Chunk a lot because their bond and friendship really plucked at my heart strings. Data was the other character I gravitated to... not because he's Asian... because all those kickass gadgets, right?
