The comic strips in the film were actually drawn by the late Alex Toth.
Alex Toth (June 25, 1928 May 27, 2006), pronounced with a long "o",
was a professional cartoonist. He began his career in comic strips and
comic books but is best known for his animation designs for
Hanna-Barbera throughout the 1960s and 1970s.
His work included Super Friends, Jonny Quest, Space Ghost and Birdman.
Toth's work has been resurrected in the late-night, adult-themed spinoffs on Cartoon Network: Space Ghost: Coast to Coast, Sealab 2021 and Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law.
Some newspapers even carried 10 days of teaser Bash Brannigan strips which got sillier and sillier with insider Hollywood comments each day of its' short run.

This film is brillantly parodied by Monty Python in the "Monty Python and

it deserves our thanks. And it's way better than Orson Welles' attempt.

FALL GUY (KAMATA KOSHINKYOKU) Directed by Kinji
Fukasaku, 1982, 109 min
Fall Guy depicts the inside story of a film studio in a comical touch, where a nearly has-been movie star takes full advantage of an adoring member of his entourage & hanger on's blind devotion.
The former has the hanger on, who works as a bit player, marry the lovely actress he accidentally impregnated, in a bid to preserve his image, and then asks the fan to perform a show-stopping, life-threatening stunt in the hopes of making a big comeback.
At times moving, funny, and even romantic, Fall Guy, was well received and has won the first place in the "Ten Best Films" poll by Kinema Jumpo, as well as many other awards.
PS The honeymoon trip to Kyushu is a sweet moment of the film and clearly an inside joke.
This film while translated to appeal to younger English viewers has the 10
basic classic battle lessons as the treat between the oh I see your panties
humor from the supporting cast member who plays a lustful wizard/priest...
The sword versus long staff battle is a tremendous one.
I hope you enjoy this film.
