Tales of the Beanworld
Hungry? is an ashcan which has parts from the upcoming graphic novel Float Force.
Publication date: 1995
The first section is fully drawn. It's a refresher with Professor Garbanzo, the elusive notworm, and the baby beans. Proffy demonstrates spear-making, and the elusive notworm plays a game with the cuties.
In the second part, rough sketches on left-hand pages face the completed versions on the right-hand pages. The story brings back the Big Fish. While looking for food, it runs into the upside-down and backward bean Heyoka, who is on her way back to the Beanworld. After an initial misunderstanding, Big Fish realizes who Heyoka is, and doesn't eat her, even though Heyoka asks to be.
The last three pages are rough sketches from near the end of Float Force. Beanish and a member of the Boom'r Band are boom'n up a storm. It affects two baby beans in a very surprising way!
The last page is Professor Garbanzo pondering the meaning of her Fix-It Shop.
Two pages of notes give a number of very tantalizing hints about the Float Force graphic novel.
For the first time, we get to see the pencils (rough sketches) next to the finished images.
