Reilly Planet Hulk!
I’ve had a ton of small commissions done by Rob Reilly – and when I saw him at the con I couldn’t resist asking for a full, color, up your nose with a rubber hose commission! The works! And here, Reilly did me some major props! Thanks, Rob! Of all the small pieces he did – I never asked for a PH and have always regretted it… and this is exactly why! Rob’s style is perfect for an all ages comic – I wish someone would use him in that regard.
Look at that Mug! Come on! How awesome is that?
I love the cartoony style – but it’s more than just a simple cartoon. All the little details he remembers to throw in – even the top of the helmet – everything is perfect! I hope to think of something a little more interesting when I see him again. I will be requesting a Vs. scene – and I’m thinking a Hulk vs Warlock – I don’t know why exactly – but I just think he could do the characters some real justice! What do you guys think?
Someone got maced!
Joe Fixit - Shooting Up the Place!
Here’s the second set of commissions. Yes, I’m sure you’ve guessed – that’s fixit above there. If you click on Fixit above you will be taken to Rob’s web site. He’s always interested in commissions – so if you like what you see – the guy seems to be able to do any character. Now I saved some of my favorite pieces for this post – mainly because it has some solid villians including,
The Leader - Who Can Tell Where the Quote is From?
A Very Graphic Wendigo! One of the best commissions ever!
And I chose to get one of the most important, driving forces in the Hulk comics – one Miss Betty Ross:

And now a shot of all 10 commissions!
Can't wait to get a frame for these!
UPDATE: I just brought these to see what a frame would cost – they quoted me $485.00 – needless to say I passed on the framing. I’ll see what I can do about maybe finding a cheaper way to display them.
Rob Reilly Hulk
When I went to the Boston Comic Con I checked out a lot of artists there. One of the more fun commissions I picked up was from a nice guy named Rob Reilly. His cartoony style captures the eye and fits really well with the Hulk. When I asked for a Hulk piece he said “No Problem”. I came back a little while later and he had the Hulk above ready for me. I LOVED it! His style is unique and impressive – so I went home and visited his website here and then quickyl contacted him about getting a whole slew of pieces, all of characters in the Hulk universe. So, I will show 5 in this post and then post the next 5 tomorrow:
Hulk Freakin' SMASH!
So, including the Hulk above, we have – Thunderbolt Ross:
Biggity-BAM - Abomination!
And Aquon, of course! Did you think I would forget about my favorite chacter?:
Aquon - One of the best!
