Hulk On A Rampage For Hero Initiative

Then lucky bastiches who attended Wizard World Chicago in 2008 were able to view these Hulk covers, donated by a Who's Who of modern comic art masters, for the Hero InitiativeComic Book Resources has a full image gallery, but I've plucked a few of my favorites.


Alan Davis: I love that glare in the Hulk's eyes.  I think my favorite Hulk artists find the character in his facial expressions.  Davis, Dale Keown, Gary Frank, are all superb in this respect.


Jimmy Cheung: This is a fantastic piece with gray tones.  Who are the two people on the left?  The woman must be Betty, is that guy supposed to be Rick Jones?


Terry Dodson: If you're a red blooded male, you're not looking at the Hulk.  A lot of the Hulk covers feature the She-Hulk.  I am reminded of the Hulk 2000 annual by Paul Jenkins where the Hulk tried to clobber She-Hulk into being his girlfriend.  Now that makes me wonder where those Hulk kids came from in Wolverine #66...


Steve Dillion: The most surprising artist to draw the Hulk, but one of the most effective!  He really captures the madness in the Hulk's face in this half-shot.

In addition to the Hulk covers, there was a special Hulk wine bottle with sketches and autographs that will be raffled off.  Nuff said.
