A Different View Of...
The Thing Versus The Hulk!
As Drawn by Fred Hembeck!
As mentioned in an earlier blog post, I have been a fan of Fred Hembeck's work... for quite a while, so it was only natural that I would stop in at his Facebook Comic Con Table this past weekend!
While at his 'virtual table' at this 'virtual comic convention', I noticed that he didn't have any of his illustrations for sale, so I double checked his eBay listings to see what was newly listed.
I was 'blown away' when I saw the illustration that is pictured above in this blog post! My favorite Marvel Superhero character is the Thing, and I always loved it when he and the Incredible Hulk would go at it!
My earliest recollection of such a confrontation would be in the pages of Fantastic Four #12 from March 1963, and then later in Fantastic Four issues #25 & 26 in April/May 1964. Those were Great Jack Kirby Classics!Fred's artwork is uniquely different, and one that I also appreciate. He had other pieces there for sale, including the following characters: Lady Blackhawk, Power Man & Iron Fist, the Captain Marvel Family, Spider-Man versus Sandman (my youngest son's fav of Fred's current illos), and Mr Fantastic with the Invisible Girl, among others.
You can see the above illo of the Thing vs the Incredible Hulk in its' fully illustrated size, and other items being listed by Fred by clicking here!
If you have not seen Fred Hembeck's unique style of cartooning, you should check out his listings plus a publication or two of his! Plus maybe even 'join' his FBCC Table afterwards as the con continues 24/7 now after the Gala Premiere!
