Jaws Chiptooth 1, P. 9 by Jochimus Jaws Chiptooth 1, P. 9 by Jochimus
Page 9.

REFERENCES
The submerged walkway here is, of course, inspired by the Undersea Kingdom in "Jaws 3" (itself inspired by the Shark Encounter exhibit at Sea World in Orlando). Ditto for the shot of Chiptooth pressing his nose up against the glass - a nod to a few of that movie's most infamous scenes. "Jaws 3" is such a cheeseball excuse for a shark movie that I've found it to be a ripe target for being spoofed.
The mention of Frankenstein and Mary Shelley was something that wasn't in any previous version of the story that I'd done, but since the Frankenstein story itself has become public domain, for some reason (maybe the fact that Peter Benchley re-interpreted the legend somewhat himself as "White Shark", later re-titled "Creature" for television) I just decided to touch the briefest mention of it.

:Jawdrop: Wow this is almost what I envisioned for my shark character. Amazing. I should read the rest.


My story isn't Jaws based though, more superhero ish. Still amazing. :dummy:

Is he a scientist? 0o Cuz mine is too, but he's more human than shark.
