The Hulk, Death's Head... and the Doctor?!

Here are a couple of pages from my SOULMAN INC SKETCHBOOK, which featured my original comic strip battle between the Incredible Hulk and Death's Head, as well as a collection of sketches and artwork from yours truly. I had a tremendous amount of fun writing and drawing this strip (which originally started off as a couple of pages posted up onto my deviant art page and took a life of it's own shortly after... even leading to an official strip, featured in last years MARVEL HEROES.)... I wanted the book as a whole to be a tribute to the 1970's Marvel UK comics, hence the black and white halftone shading. Since it's pretty much no secret who the third character of the story is now (since the sketchbook has been reviewed several times online), I thought I'd share these pages for you all to see. This is the first time these pages have been shown online... the first being exclusive to this blog:

I'd love to see this strip coloured up sometime... maybe for a second printing. Meantime, hope you like this piece of retro-comic goodness... and if you're all good, I may post another page up for you to check out sometime soon...
