In AVENGERS vs X-MEN : VERSUS Issue # 3 (which hits comic stands everywhere on June 13th), not only will this AvX battle book feature a bout between the legendary assassin Black Widow and Magik, but will also feature the return of the Red Hulk creator duo… writer Jeph Loeb and artist Ed “Born to Draw Rulk” McGuinness!
Loeb and McGuinness will take on the other title bout on the card, a Colossus versus Thing smash-fest that will feature an appearance by no one other than the Red Hulk himself!

    In black n’ white it looks slightly gimmicky. Hopefully Guru FX is the colorist on this issue; his colors are part of what make Rulk…Rulk.

    Although the smirk Red has……THAT is the embodiment of class, cheese, spite, malice, evil and muscle bound fandom all wrapped up in one.

    • The smirk! I couldn’t have said it better myself ZW! 🙂

      Even in inked form, nothing is more satisfying to me than Ed McGuinness picking up a pencil and drawing the Rulk! All his other work… Deadpool… Superman.. Avengers.. pales in comparison when he draws the big red! That’s why I believe he was born to do it! 🙂

    The small evenly boxes on page one is atypical of Ed Mcguinness. Ed is famous for large drawings and double page spreads. It strangely strikes me however no one does the red Hulk better than Ed. He is the champ.

      The main reason why nobody can draw Rulk better (close, but no cigar) is because is Rulk’s daddy. He came first, drew him first, designed him first. Chances are another artist would have made him something completely different than a literal Red Hulk that he is (and not in a good way may I add.)

    • I agree David, the panel layout is a little odd considering Ed drew it.

      It has a slightly “forced” feel, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it simply was due to having so few pages to work with and cramming in as much as he can. Remember he has only half a book to create in “Versus” # 3. 🙂

        That makes sense

    For myself first means nothing. It the level of talent Ed has that surpasses every other artist where the Red Hulk is concerned. He wins every time.
