Another ‘just for fun’ doodle! Enjoy!

Here’s a piece I pencilled and inked at the request of and for my friend, Wheeler. He originally asked me to draw (my choice) the Hulk, Iron Man, or Thor on the Blank Cover Variant of his New Avengers #1 and instructed me that he liked the classic look of the Avengers, as designed by Jack ‘King’ Kirby.
Of course, my daughter, Sarah, has an affinity for the “Not Brand Echh” series of comics, starring the Revengers. The Revengers were “Charlie America,” “The Mighty Sore,” “Knock Furious, agent of S.H.E.E.S.H,” and of course “The Echhs Men.” Sarah thinks one particular scene starring the Revengers is comic gold. When The Revengers discover Charlie America floating in a block of ice and thaw him out, Sore introduces himself, “I am Mighty Sore.” Charlie responds “Me too, Lady. Have you got any Excedrin?” From that point on, the witty banter never stops.
So, I decided to draw Thor for my friend because of the warm feeling I get when I think about his counterpart “The Mighty Sore” and Sarah’s love for that Revengers story.
Above, you will find my pencils and inks colored by my friend, Wheeler Hall. Below is the uncolored original line art that will be framed and hung next to Wheeler’s other collectibles.
