Marvel's 'Lord of the Savage Land' was one of those characters I used to comb the comic racks for, trying to find his endangered guest appearances. To see him decked out here (from Ultimates 3 #3), by one of the artists who defined late 90's comic art... well it's just wild. I mean look at Zabu - he's massive!
Adam Strange, Falcon, the Spectre, I'm sure every 'hit artist' has their own favourite lurking in the back of their employers character library. Maybe studios could put out an annual special, where just for a few pages each artist could take their best underdog for a run - just to see the difference a passionate pencil can make.
