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.


  1. amazing as always. The guy continues to blow me away with his work.

  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!
