Tom Palmer. The name alone means so much to Marvel fans. Don’t believe me? Check out this list of Greatest Inkers of American Comic Books. That’s right. Also, I have one of the classiest and best friends ever. Tom Palmer frequents Zapp Comics in N.J. where my friend, Corry, works. Corry asked for a sketch of the Hulk to be done for a Christmas present. Tom Palmer did so much more.
This is a full, beautiful, inked piece by an absolute master. Look at the detail in this piece that screams classic Marvel. Everything about this piece makes me giddy. I would have never acquired such an amazing piece had it not be for my friend – so thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have collected a lot of art at this point – but this one, even signed to me, is my favorite. Check out this other blog if you want to see just how revered Tom Palmer is in the industry.
