Steve Reeves....the man the myth...the real HERC!
uhnnmm...where to begin? here is a old picture I drew of my best Steve Reeves from when I was 15...I got loads of old drawings of Herc,Hulk,Conan and Tarzan...even a few of ol' RED !!! I put the drawing through the Befunky.com cartoonizer for a cool l'il effect to enhance my old drawing.
Accompanied with the drawing are 2 of my favorite pieces from my coollection of weird junk ,comics , toys , Pitchers and old posters and whatnot.
Dell four color copies of HERCULES and HERCULES unchained....the HERCULES book has artwork by none other than JOHN BUSCEMA hisself ( pre Marvel ) and what beautiful work it is and it is forever enshrined in the book for all to see ( whosoever has a copy ) and the second book has art by ( I believe ) Dan Spiegel. I may be wrong and I have heard it was Reed Crandall but I am a master of artistic analysis and execution and recognize some of the anotomical structures and line work as Spiegel. ( But I could be wrong ) If anybody knows for a fact who actually did the art...I'll need proof otherwise it's Dan Spiegel in my estimation.
