ORIGINAL RULK ART : HULK Issue # 1, Page # 22

This is more about history than it is art.

Some time ago, I was able to obtain the original art of the last page of HULK Issue #1.   Penciled by my favorite Hulk artist Ed McGuinness and inked by Dexter Vines on official Marvel 11 x 17 comic board, this is the page that revealed to the world that the fiendish new Red Hulk with devilish yellow eyes was not Bruce Banner… but someone else entirely.

Artistically speaking, it’s not a stunning piece of work.   The scene is quite basic where Banner sits on a cell bed as the glare of General Ross and Leonard Samson (drawn separately, then overlaid via a computer graphics program) can be seen staring at Bruce through the prison security glass.   The page is of course, certainly well drawn, but not a work to be considered by many as a full “gallery piece“.

Historically speaking though, this page has importance…   and in terms of the ever expanding Red Hulk legacy, it can’t get much better than a final splash page of a #1 book.   Check it out!

ORIGINAL RULK ART : Hulk Issue # 23, Page # 7

There is no original art I like better than Ed McGuinness original art.  And what better art to have than a page from a monumental landmark Rulk issue, just like this one I obtained from HULK Issue #23 ”Who is the Red Hulk?” 
 
It’s an awesome page on official Marvel 11 x 17 board depicting Thaddeus E. Ross in the awesome grip of the cosmic hulk.  With the cosmic hulk’s massive jaw open letting loose a ”SMASH” roar to his oversized hand squeezing the former General, it has all the trademark McGuinness hulk features that make his hulk art so awesome! 
 
Check it out!
