HULK SMASH

The Hulk is a kind, gentle, stupid monster. He likes to play, and is very inquisitive of the world around him. Unfortunately, having super strength causes more trouble than it's worth for poor Hulk. In this particular scenario, even the combined might of Superman, Santa Claus, Abe Lincoln and Orko can not stop The Hulk before it's too late.

I am both delighted and disturbed by this. Great illo, great tragedy. Tragedy never looked so good.

I love any illustration that looks "Saturday Morning" at first glance and becomes a twisted nightmare on further examination. Wonderful job, Dave!

I think Abe could stand a chance - he is holding a bat...

Love the cast of characters. For some reason, Superman looks like an imposter - like someone dressed up in his place.

A very Frankensteinish Hulk too. He really is a monster. Dig it Dave.

Hey Kevin,

I would have liked to use those other imaginary characters you suggest, but that would be like mixing the Marvel and DC universes - which as I understand is a no no. ;)

Bob, for Supes, I was thinking more Dean Martin - Yeah, it's probably just a regular shmoe in Superman clothing, which probably makes Abe Lincoln more powerful.

Fantastic work as always. David Banner should have never taken that bus-driver job!

Great job man, love the boldness in the lines on the hulk. His face is classic and gives him that caveman like appearance. If I had only one crit. it would be that the Hulk appears to have only one leg. Looks like the random hero characters showed up a bit late too, lol.

Anyways, look forward to seeing your post every week.

Thanks for the critiques and comments folks.

Kevin C, That bus driver joke was great.
Mark, the "one leg" was something I was very aware of. I didn't have it in the sketch - and as I pulled it together, I chose not to put the far leg in fearing that it could take away from the silhouette. Maybe if I put a ground plane in I would have reconsidered.

Love this! The kids expressions and body placement is very well done. Hulk is indeed a tripod but maybe the bus ran over his leg and that caused the fury.Great Dave! I always look forward to viewing your posts each week.
