I was fortunate enough to get a sneak peek at this painting about a week before JOE JUSKO decided to let everyone see it. He sent me an attachment that said.. "DO NOT SHARE"
Let me tell ya...when JOE says..."DO NOT SHARE"...you don't even dare try to think twice about it. I was all like...Yessir......
THEN>>>>he sent me an advance scan of his painting from the cover of WOLVERINE and HERCULES # 3....WOW!!!
Now I want to talk about this painting. POWER!!! Every brush stroke and every ripple and hair on HERC and those ZOMBIES!!! Look ...I love my super heroes , I love my HERCULES , I love my CONAN , I LOVE ME SOME SHANNA....every bit as much as I love the genre of ZOMBIES. I see a Zombie that kind of looks like TOR JOHNSON and one that looks a little like BARNABAS COLLINS.
HERC crushing that ones neck awesome. I can't wait for this series to come out. There is a lot going on at MARVEL with HERC these days. I am absolutely ecstatic that he is an important figure in the M/U. They should keep it up and I can't wait to see what the future holds.
Thank you very much Mr. Jusko for sharing that with me. I speak for everyone ( I think )
when I say...."JUSKO RULES!!!" We are so lucky that there is a guy like you pumping out the great work at the pace you do with quality and unmatched skill. ( There goes my Fan boy sensibility again ) But really, we appreciate your work. I know I can't wait to see what's next.

This is panel from the Dell four color movie adaptation of HERCULES drawn by John Buscema.
My friend Michael Maikowsky shared it with me on Facebook and now I'm sharing it with the 20,000 plus fans of HERCULES....there were contemporaries and peers to the Late great Mr. Buscema but he was the best of the best.

I was tooling around looking at some other cool blogs and came across an image of the THING on Ross' BRAVE and the BOLD blog...I asked him where he got that image of the THING and he directed me to this cool blog called..."Springfield Punx" it's run by a fella named DEAN and he does "Simpson's" style renditions of everyone under the sun. Here are just a few...topped off with the 1960's cartoon version of the "MIGHTY HERCULES , Hero of ancient glory"
This is an alternate cover used for one of the Incredible HERCULES issues...I love retro and I love the 70's and I loved the CHAMPIONS what a really cool looking pic. I'll find out who drew it and post that pro's name so he gets the credit he deserves. Unless someone would like to volunteer this onfo? :)

I found these in my old portfolio from when I was a student at Joe Kuberts school for cartoon graphics and cinemtic animation...it's an old Comic shop news...a little clip featuring the splash page from the back up in THOR 400...great stuff. I love DON HECK...and a little piece of artwork I found. I was teaching myself to use Dr. P.H. Martin's dyes on a little HERCULES photo copy of mine I did for art that had gotten ruined in a flood when I lived in a basement apartment. Lucky for me..I found this little thing..eh?
