Coca Cola + Hulk and Ant-Man = best Super Bowl commercial!

It’s only halftime of the Super Bowl but I am sure that I have already seen the best commercial of the night. What starts out as a Hulk vs. Ant-Man battle for a can of coke turns out to be a team up as Ant-Man helps Hulk when his fingers prove too big to open the can. The commercial is chock full of jumping, smashing, and roaring but my favorite part is then end where Hulk delicately handles the can of Coke with pinky finger extended like he is at a tea party. Natasha’s lullaby at work? Enjoy!

Hulk like Coke!

Marvel Comics, MTV, and Dale Keown’s Hulk, oh my!

See below for a great video capturing an MTV broadcast from Marvel Studios in February of 1992. As an art collector, I really wish art was still produced this way as I miss the dialog and word balloons on the page. As someone who probably had a mullet at this time, I do not miss the hair styles of 1992.

This was also a great time for Hulk fans as it coincides with Dale Keown’s magical run on the title. Issue 390 came out this month which is one of my favorite covers that Dale drew. In the beginning, all of the changes to the character (muscle shirt, merged personality, big guns, etc) did not appeal to my gamma sensebilities but Peter David’s writing and Dale’s artwork made me a true believer pretty quickly. The Pantheon, Rick Jones, … and who can forget the bunny slippers?!? Also out that month was Hulk crossing over into Spiderman issue 19.

Name that Page!

OK, gammabros here is a challenge. I picked up a fun transformation page a while back that was a bit of a stumper so I would like to see if anyone can name the page that this comes from. I already posted this to CAF so don’t check that site unless you aren’t able to name the page. Looking for the gammabro with the knowledge to name this page unassisted.

181 gamma points (honor system please) for the first to name it correctly. Go!

Hulk by David Finch and Jonathan Glapion – an amazing addition to my Bob Larkin themed collection

This is my newest piece in my homage series to Bob Larkin’s famous Hulk poster. Pencils from David Finch were done back in 2010 and I recently had  Jonathan Glapion add inks. I couldn’t be happier with the finished result.

New Bob Larkin Hulk homage artwork – Jon Buran!

Bob Larkin Hulk homage by Jon Buran and Jeremy Freeman. Jon and Jeremy collaborated on a few Marvel Adventures issues so it was nice to get them on this commission together.

Jon is probably not on most people’s radar as he hasn’t worked a lot for the big two flagship titles. You may know his name for the many issues of World of Warcraft he has done. I first met Jon about 8-10 years ago at the Chicago comicon when I noticed several penciled Hulk pages which he did as a pitch to try and break in at Marvel. We have stayed in touch over the years and we recently completed a couple commissions. The other commission was Planet Hulk which will be posted soon. I have also been able to acquire the pitch story art and will post as well.

Next up in the Larkin series: David Finch/Jonathan Glapion.
