Yo, ted, listen, I've got a great idea. Get some rope, a few guns, and your riding boots, and meet out by the beach.

Hello, this is Mcherlicho. We're two people, and not in that schizophrenic kind of way.
It was a collaboration between Edgar Mcherly and James Cho. We hope you can appreciate the "Jawsomeness" of this. {edgar laughs} Thanks a lot for your votes in advance!

Somehow, a Cho/Edgar collab doesn't surprise me a bit.

Excellent work, guys! Hope to see more of this mind-melding in the future (so long as we get to see your own awesome work as well!)

An Excerpt from the Journal of Teddy "The Muscle" James

March 1, 3288

Wow, yesterday was a crazy one. Me and the gang were setting up an ambush of a transport heading north through the Sacremento Valley. This wasn't your average shipment of sea monkeys, it was a shipment of military-grade tortoise mounts. We got the tip from a guy by the name of Prickly Pete who deals mostly in blowfish, but he said the tip was on the up and up. I sent my cousin Gregory to verify the tip from another source, and he asured me it was clean. Boy, was he wrong.

The day got off to a great start. We headed out in the morning to set up the starfish land mines (ingredients: one giant spiny starfish, one large blowfish, flattened). We were just getting finished, ahead of schedule, when we noticed my cousin Gregory had managed to install every one of his upside down (You've seen the ingredients, how can that possibly happen?). We went back and fixed every one of them, even though we were sticking around way longer then felt safe. We finally got all of the mines fixed, and got out of sight when we spotted a scout from the caravan. Well, he didn't notice us, so things were starting to look up again.

We set ourselves up for the ambush point just around the next bend, and waited for our certain victory. We were 26 strong by this point, with the majority riding hammerheads or great whites, and a few of our sharpshooters riding manta rays. Everything was going as planned.

The minute we heard the starfish mines go off, we turned the corner and rushed in. What we found was like nothing we had seen before. It wasn't a transport hauling tortoise mounts, it was a brigade of them. There had to be 40 strong of the most heavily armored fortresses in this part of the ocean. We were instantly outnumbered. I was leading the group of 24 of my best men and my cousin to certain death, and I had to think fast.

While the starfish mines had failed to actually stop the heavy armament, it provided a temporary defensive screen that gave us just enough time to put into place a quick escape plan. They may have had us outnumbered and outgunned, but our sharks have a definite maneuverability advantage. I quickly led the entire gang under the column of tortoise mounts, threatening the riders close enough to us with a few shots from my trusty six shooter. The tortoise mounts were not maneuverable enough to turn around in the narrow valley, and we were able to escape out the back and they quickly lost our trail.

We were very lucky that any of us made it out alive, but we didn't make it back in full numbers. Gregory was lost on the mission. It wasn't that the brigade got him, it happened on the way back to the hideout. He was practicing with his lasso, attempting to lasso fish as they passed. We didn't think any harm could come from it, since he hadn't even hit the fish he was aiming at yet. Then, in front of my eyes, he threw a perfect toss around the nose of a passing sailfish. Unfortunately, this isn't an incredibly intelligent thing to do, because the sailfish can drag you for days if you get caught up in the rope. Gregory didn't seem caught up in it, but didn't seem to remember that he could let go, either (I'm starting to think he's a bit slow). I suppose we might see him again some day, but I'm not going to pretend to be anxious.

Oh well, that's it for today, there is an important shipment of coral due to the local bank around lunchtime, and we wouldn't want to be late.

They often do that. Designs get our hopes up, maybe hang out in the hotness for a while, then drop out and lose their momentum, breaking out hearts. My fighter plane did that yesterday.

This is awesome though. I wonder how they did the breakdown for the collaboration.

This is epic, like when the great battle between pirates and ninjas first began... only nerdier. I'm guessing cho did the art and edgar had the concept?

Both did both, though Cho did the final inking of the lines.

I wonder if this will pick up enough steam, though. Super awesome design, though!
