No, it's not my boss

I've never been a big Hulk fan. I could see after the first 12 issues, in 1961 or so, walking into Stan Lee's office and saying "That's it, I can't think of anywhere else we can take this concept!" But I've always loved the Jack Kirby/Monster way it was drawn in the beginning. It almost reminds me more of a gigantic child, than anything else. I saw an Eric Powell version recently that appealed to me for that reason and attempted a study of it. Lost interest in the inking stage .... Bah! Puny sable brush!!

  1. Hulk Angry! Hulk Bake!

    Why is Hulk green? Does he photosynthesize? Questions like that used to take up whole afternoons. Now, Google allows us to determine that exactly 38,005 other nerds had more-or-less exactly the same conversation. Indeed, they've blogged about it.

    I mourn mankind.
