Captain Cartoon Meets
Captain Kirk At Wizard World!
William Shatner met with South Florida caricaturist and former Star Trek newspaper strip artist Captain Cartoon at the recent Wizard World Comic Con in Fort Lauderdale.
Two original comic strips from the 1980s Star Trek newspaper comic series were gifted to the ultimate Star Trek icon of them all: William "Captain Kirk" Shatner, by a local artist at the Wizard World Comic Con in Fort Lauderdale Friday.
Drawn in 1983 by South Florida caricature artist Dick "Captain Cartoon" Kulpa, these were Dick's last remaining originals.
During the informal private get-together, Mr. Shatner was presented with a rare "Bat Boy" newspaper edition featuring a photo of the "Spock-eared" half-bat, half-boy created by Kulpa, and a vintage copy of Kulpa's CRACKED magazine featuring Captain Kirk in satire.
"As I approached Mr. Shatner, who was seated at a round table in this huge room, all I could think to say was "beam me up, Scotty," Kulpa said, admitting that he was at a loss for words.
"Is that the cleverest thing you can say?" Shatner wryly asked. As Kulpa unveiled the 33-year-old framed comic strip original, plus a few other things, everything
fell in sync.
"I just needed something to Klingon to," Kulpa told the Fun Times, "after all, I'm an artist, not a comedian. I was honored to have gotten such a quick rise out of 'Captain Kirk' however — that does not happen every day."
Mr. Shatner was cheered by hundreds of adoring fans when he appeared on the convention floor, proving he's as popular as ever.
"I was impressed at how genuinely warm Mr. Shatner is in real life," said Dorothy P., also in attendance at the private meeting. Sources revealed such meetings are rarely approved, but that an exception was made here.
Wizard World comic conventions are held in major cities across the country.
