MAKING A MARK: Matteo Spirito - The Digital Artist Making Megabytes A 'HULK SMASH!'

Twice a week, Making A Mark gives an insanely talented artist some IADW brag-space. Today goes to Matteo Spirito, a digital artist all the way from Latina city, whose work packs as much of a punch as the clash of the titans it renders. His colours royal rumble, and the eyes of the audience are left black an blue. Click to enlarge time!

While the Hulk vs beasties image reminds me of those great pulp covers of old, the ay he's facing the zombies on the right and vica versa, makes me think how cool a Hulk vs Walking Dead crossover would be! Sure Matteo doesn't name the piece the Walking Dead, but that's how cool Image Comics' flesh-munching hit is, I now attribute any non-labelled sweet zombie pic to it's awesomeness!

Red Hulk was a character I sure took a lot of time to warm to. At first I just thought the transformation had removed a lot of the wicked contrasts there were between Banner and General Ross, but now I'm pegging it just makes their battleground even hotter! Spirito proves that right here. As for X-Force, who doesn't like seeing a werewolf dive out of a plane?

That folks is my current wallpaper. Thor vs The Destroyer, all set against a very Boris Vallejo sky - 'Nuff said!
