GREAT MOMENTS IN HULK HISTORY...


Here's a Saturday quickie for all who are craving a Criv-ite fix.
A random gallery of GREAT MOMENTS IN HULK HISTORY,
from MARVEL U.K.'s RAMPAGE MONTHLY (which we looked
at in the previous post).  The last pic is a bit 'washed-out', but that's
how it was in the mag.  Despite that, hope you enjoy them.

The art on the first one is horrible - the Hulk looks like some kind of ogre.

Well, he looked distinctly 'ogre-ish' in some of the early Hulk tales, Col. He's meant to be a monster, remember. My main beef with that pic is that he's not towering over Thor. He's meant to be at least a 7 foot tall monster.

Crikey that first one is pretty stinky, what happened, did the artist draw it while performing an escapology act, escaping from mail sack, hanging upside down from a derrick with his hands cuffed behind his back? The Hulk's gotta be one of the most difficult characters to draw interacting with other figures, because, like you say, he's tall but he's superhumanly stocky too. So you get weird things, like fists the size of a torso in some renderings.

Thor looks a bit girly, petulantly hanging on to his handbag - er, I mean hammer. The figure-work is a little stiff, but it's neatly if unimaginatively drawn.

Kid, I'd also thought that Thor looked "girly" in that photo lol. I've read that Thor is supposed to be about 6 feet 5 inches tall (to reflect his god-like status) so maybe the difference in size between him and the Hulk wouldn't be so great. The Hulk's size (like the Thing's) never seemed to be fixed and just depended on the artist - I've seen versions of the Hulk where he looks ridiculously small and other times when he looks gigantic.

You're right, Col. Kirby in particular was never too consistent with the Hulk's (or anybody's) height. I think that the Hulk should be around 7 and a half feet at least so that he'd be over a foot taller than Thor.
