As busy as I am these days I still found time to partake in Free Comic Book day this past Saturday. One of the Comic Shops I visit, the New England Comics in Quincy, had a bunch of free comics as well as a local artist doing sketches for people AND a huge sale going on. I found quite a few things I needed – some of which I will show later – I also got a Hulk sketch from the artist there – which I will also show later, but it made me realize just how much new art I have that I haven’t shown! So this whole week will be dedicated to the original Hulk art I have starting with this piece!
When I asked Matt Brundage to do a commission to commemorate the birth of my upcoming daughter – due in August people! – He gave me 2 pieces. The first, which he said was just a “fun” work up, I already showed you – it was the Hulk pushing Abomination’s face while he held a Hulk baby in the other hand – if you need another refresher check out the ART page above – but this was the actual piece he did for me. It features some of the very best villains based on my favorite artist’s work – Herb Trimpe!
Now, we see the Bi-Beast, obviously, the Abomination is in there too – although he looks like he’s hurting pretty bad – and the Leader is lurking in the background – but to be presented with such an amazing piece – especially for the reason I got it – was more than I could ever ask for! It was just perfect – all around one of the best commissions I’ve ever had done!
