HAPPY (Belated) NEW YEAR TO ALL!
Well, I'm a little late with this specific New Year's Day themed cover, but I still wanted to finish it up and post it. For some reason, the New Year's Jim Steranko Hulk I posted last year seemed mildly popular, so I thought I'd continue with this one, as well. Maybe I should have the Hulk ring in the New Year EVERY year? :-)
I currently have a lot of irons in the fire, but I am hoping to post a little more often than last year (I averaged about one post ever week-and-a-half). I hope everyone has a fantastic New Year!
Here's the cover I based this on, The Incredible Hulk #135 by Herb Timpe. I always liked this cover and really wanted to re-do this for the late, great Covered Blog but, alas, I guess it wasn't meant to be. So, I just did it as a more "cartoony" post for here.

Here is the original inked page after I cleaned it up a little bit in PhotoShop. It was done with a brush pen on 8-1/2" x 11" cardstock--nothing too fancy. I then imported it into PhotoShop and created a MULTIPLY Layer to colorize the drawing. I also did the lettering in PhotoShop, too.
