A Week of Leonard Samson – TIH #442

Here’s another cover without Samson’s calling card shirt!  WTF?  But notice, he’s also teamed up with She Hulk… again… these two always seems to fight together against a common cause.  I mean – let’s get this straight – She-Hulk has always been written as a sexy character – but I would not be able to get past the green skin.  It’s like that lady who was attacked by the pet chimp that was on Oprah this week – I wouldn’t be able to have a conversation with her that didn’t start with “OHMYGODWHATHAPPENEDTOYOURFACE!”

Warren Martineck Boston Comic Con Commission (2009)

Warren Martineck Commission

This was probably one of the biggest surprises of the Comic-Con.  As I was waiting for my time to go see Tim Sale I was wandering around looking at the other artist’s tables.  I came across Warren Martineck drawing at his table.  I looked at the piece and saw what you see above… and my jaw just dropped.  I asked about the page and he said he was just “warming up” – he had a project coming up with Marvel and that he wanted to practice with characters that he hadn’t had a lot of experience with lately.  I couldn’t believe my eyes!  He was just having fun – with an amazing piece – of my favorite character!

Close up of Hulk

And look at all the detials in this one!  It’s outstanding!  The Hulk is breaking free from huge chains – in an obvious lab where an experiment must have been going on… something shady to make the Hulk that upset.  Anyways, I asked Warren if he would consider parting with it – and he said “sure”!  I paid what I considered to be a reallt decent price for a large, detailed Hulk page that would make any Hulk collector drool!  I might have to contact Warren in the future to ink this piece… as I think it certainly deserves to be inked!
