This one's for my buddy Javier Hernandez: Ol' Shellhead by Beto!

I thought of Jav the minute I saw this re: Gilbert Hernandez's (no relation) take on one of our favorite comic book characters, the Invincible Iron Man. Adding sugar to the mix: Beto riffed on the Steve Ditko-designed costume. There's more imagery right here!

"Love and Repulsor Rays" indeed!

Thanks Michael! This looks really fun. What a trip, though! I had seen the Jaime Hernandez cover a while ago (what zoftig-looking Marvel girls!) but wasn't aware of Gilbert doing a story.

Howzabout Marvel scrapping their regular line and just having indie creators do one-off stories and keep it fun for once?

Hey, Jav. Good idea but that'd be too earth-shaking for the mainstream companies. Right now, we indie folk are a novelty sideshow! ha ha!
