VINTAGE VENTURE: Brock Samson by BrentJS VINTAGE VENTURE: Brock Samson by BrentJS
I really enjoyed the "old comic" look that Jason Martin did for his Molotov piece, so I decided to give it a shot with my Venture Bros #1: Brock Samson mock comic book cover.

This piece started as a tribute to one of the greatest comic book artists of any generation, Jim Steranko, whose famous cover to Marvel’s Hulk King-Size Annual #1 (1968) is the inspiration for this piece.

This is also a tribute to The Venture Bros., the incredibly well-written, hilarious cartoon from Adult Swim and Comedy Central. If you haven’t watched it before, you’re really missing out!


BROCK: After the twist, you'll feel a snap and the body goes ragdoll on you.
HANK: And that will knock him out... even more?
BROCK: That will kill him.
HANK: Do I have to?
BROCK: Alright, fine crybaby. Tie him up and, I guess, gag him. But at the first sign of trouble I want you to at least break both his knees.

UPDATE

Considering how popular this image has become, I decided it was time to update it with my new skillz. Here is a list of the changes, if you are interested:
> Completely discarded old lines and creases and made new ones.
> Touched up spine and yellowed inner pages.
> Cleaned up all edges.
> Yellowed & de-saturated cover image, adding areas of greater wear.
> Used film grain filter to texture cover.
> Highlighted upper left corner to make it look like glare.
> Added '70s wood pattern with glare as background.
> Added M&M and coins to background.

This is a tribute. Brock Samson and the Venture Bros. are © 2013 Adult Swim. The Incredible Hulk is © 2013 Marvel Comics.

The Swedish Murder Machines is, without a doubt, one of the greatest warrior/hero creations of all time!

Thanks, man! Worked hard on it. (Hard to type that with a straight face since drawing is anything but hard because I love it so much. But, yeah, I put quite a bit of time into getting the "old comic look" down.)
