The AVENGERS, EARTH's FIRST HEROES
~~ Click on the images for bigger size! ~~
Hello Pulp Friends,
with the AVENGERS movie been released this week (and being one of the greatest superhero movies to date), I couldn't help sharing on Pulp Sunday my take on this beloved team of heroes: Hulk the Druid (a Celtic primeval force of nature), Captain Amerigo (from the New World), Thor himself, and an unknown mysterious clad-armored gladiator known as Iron Man . Together they are The AVENGERS, EARTH's FIRST HEROES and they fight evils and undead armies. Think of MARVEL meets LOTR. How does that sound? :)
This idea would fit perfectly in one of those WHAT IF mini at MARVEL: maybe if I put together the full pitch they might let me do it too ;)
The second piece illustrating the Avengers fighting the dead in the snow was drawn by my dear friend Steve Gordon, who penciled the piece inspired by my idea. Steve graciously allowed me to ink and color the art so to have the image you see above.
Planning to do more art about this, like the single shot of Thor riding the horse above.
Have a great Pulp Sunday everyone.
