THE TUESDAY TUSSLE: Gabriele Dell'Otto vs Swamp Thing

The Tuesday Tussle; the biggest illustrators squaring off against pop's biggest icons - icons you never thought they'd touch. This week Gabriele Dell'Otto, the best painter of his generation, meets Swamp Thing - one of the greatest icons of his. Fight!

WINNER: Gabriele. Ay, caramba! If this doesn't prove that some artists should never be made to go 'exclusive' I don't know what does. DC needs to get more of this guys European work on their characters stateside!

With Swamp Thing making a big comeback as part of the 52 right now, I wouldn't be surprised if Warner's were watching to see if the groundswell could support a big screen revival as well. With movie-posters-in-the-waiting like this one, the answer is pretty clear to see.

For more of Dell'Otto's art, trip over to his personal website right after the jump.

  2. can't believe i didn't get around to leaving a comment on this one earlier. that's an awesome rendering of Swamp Thing and what i think is Abigail? that painting style really suites the ST genre.

  3. Thanks folks - seems lie this is another G.D.O smash! I tell you, Bats better watch out, now Swampy is back in the mainstream, his title of #1 dark and moody hero isn't as safe as it was!
