Thing Tuesdays: Thing vs Hulk by Steve Scott

Sometimes the Marvel Adventures books can be just as good, if not better, than the Marvel Universe line.  Marvel Adventures Hulk #11 had a fun story where Bruce Banner visits the Baxter Building in search of a cure, and wouldn't you just know it, gets a little green and fights Ben Grimm.  I loved the artwork in this issue and one incredible splash page in particular.  Here's a progression from pencils to inks to full color.

Steve Scott has a wonderful frame for capturing the two monster-heroes in combat.  This just seems like a classic Marvel moment to me, channeling the best of Kirby, Buscema, Starlin, etc.  I retrieved this pencil-scan from Comicspace.

The penciller and the inker (Nathan Massengill) are working in perfect harmony here.  The Thing's rocky hide looks Joe Sinnott-y perfect, and the Hulk's visage looks like the old Tales of Suspense Hulk. (This image, by the way, was taken from Marvel Spotlight: Incredible Hulk movie.)

Finally, when the computer color, letters, and sound effects are added, the whole image just pops.  I'd like to buy this page, but I suspect that it has already been sold.  I think we will see a lot more from Steve Scott, check out his web page at DeviantArt.  Nuff said.
