Heavy Metal Hulk Hook (2003)

Alright, I can’t remember if I showed this to you yet.  I don’t think so – but if I did then forgive me.  I found this piece, again, at Comically Speaking in Reading.  It’s completely made of metal, it’s heavy and the Hulk on the top is awesome!  This is one of those things that you put on a mantel and pull a small hook out from the bottom so that you may hang your stocking, hang a mistletoe, or hang a noose (wait, what?!?  A noose?  this thread just took a violent turn into scary!) from – without having to put a nail or a tack into the wood.  The profile reveals like the Hulk has either had some plastic surgery – or he had a fairy put a lying curse on him.  Man, with a schnoz like that the Hulk should be hiding in the bushes feeding lines to a guy who is confessing his love to a woman in a window.  Didn’t Steve Martin once play the Hulk in a movie?  Man, that is one big nose!

Profi... WOW!  That nose could stop traffic!

Jeff Wamester Commission (2008)

Wamester Commission

If you look on the ART page you will see the sketch that this guy did for me at the Boston Comic Con – It was so amazing I asked if he was interested in doing a commission. Lucky for me, he was! I like to see what artists can come up with when left to their own devices. All I asked was to see the Hulk battling one of his classic foes. He sent me this. It surpassed all of my expectations and completely flabbergasted me! I couldn’t believe what my eyes were seeing! A battle scene that would make any Hulk lover jealous! Wamester captured an action scene so perfectly. You can see the Hulk’s power in the illustration – showing that is not as easy as it sounds. This guy is such a talent. Even more of a surprise is that he chose the Hulk to be battling Thor. Thor! Can you even think of a more classic battle! Look at Thor’s hammer – ready to pound the Hulk – as much as the Hulk is ready to end Thor. Amazing piece indeed! So listen, to all of the Hulk fans out there – I have another commission coming from him – but if you want one of your very own, and if you love great art then you want some from him, go to his website here and contact him right away. He’s a great guy to work with and make sure you tell him Ratchet sent ya!
