Rampaging Hulk #2 - Walt Simonson art


Rampaging Hulk vl #2, 1977 - The original X-men guest-star in this issue, placing the story in the early days of Marvel's continuity. Walt Simonson's pencils are overwhelmed once again by Alfredo Alcala's domineering inks. The highlights include the dynamic opening page of the Hulk careening toward us and the two page spread of the X-men's danger room exercise. With the exception of these two examples, there are few semblances of Simonson's unique style. Interestingly, the X-men are neither shown nor mentioned on the cover. Other artists in this issue include Bob Brown, Rudy Nebres and Ken Barr (cover). This is number 2 of 3 Rampaging Hulk issues with Simonson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Simonson or Rampaging Hulk issues. See also this blog's Simonson checklist.

  1. As I understand it, these stories are no longer in Marvel Continuity? I read that somewhere.
