In trying to think up ways to get some new $ $ $, we asked the folks in a comic book store if there was (or will be) a Hunter S. Thompson action figure doll. They said not to the best of their knowledge. If Ernie Pyle was immortalized by an action figure, why can’t HST be too?
We found a book titled
Action Figure: The Life and Times Of Doonesbury’s Uncle Duke (Paperback)
by Gary Trudeau
which is about the charater in the Doonsbury comic strip named Raul Duke, who is (some suspect) based upon Hunter Thompson.
Getting the rights and permissions and all that seems like it will be a great deal (too much?) work.
To be continued . . .
