Some how I found myself standing in line at the Image area. Eric Basaldua was doing sketches. I had no idea who he was but stood in line anyway.
He was doing a sketch of a scary monster. Image Comics puts out some really cool horror stuff and lets their artists kind of go all out.
'E-Bass', as people were calling him also drew some pretty sweet werewolves.
I am a huge fan of Marvel's 1970's monsters including 'Werewolf By Night'.
When I was the next guy in line, I told him it was nice to meet him and asked if he would do a sketch of Jack Russel aka Werewolf by Night.
"I don't know who that is.", he said. What? Surely, you must be joking? I assumed all comic artists knew more than me about everything comics.
I tried to explain and knew it wasn't going to happen. I said, "um ... How about the Hulk?"
He looked at me like, 'Dude. You know I draw for Image, right?' But, he sharpened his pencil and busted out a gorgeous sketch.
The Hulk looks angry and super strong. I love it!
