Last year, The Hero Initiative, the charity dedicated to helping older comic creators in medical or financial need, enlisted the aid of 100 top-flight Spider-Man artists throughout history to create The Ultimate Spider-Man #100 Project, a collection of 100 original Spider-Man covers. The Hero Initiative is reprising the program this year with something meaner and greener.
Marvel Comics has generously donated 100 blank-covered cardstock copies of the new “Hulk” #1 to The Hero Initiative. The call went out to create a new, Hulk-centric “Ultimate 100,” and dozens of artists put pen to paper. Those involved include well-known Hulk vets such as Sal Buscema, Mike Deodato Jr., Ron Garney, Ed McGuinness, Don Perlin, Herb Trimpe, Ron Wilson, and more. In addition, Marvel superstars such as J. Scott Campbell, John Cassaday, Frank Cho, David Finch, Joe Quesada and John Romita Sr. stepped up to add their own take on ol’ Greenskin.
