Destructor vs. Croc-Man by Zach Oat

When I first read Sean's "Destructor Comes to Croc Town," I was blown away. I had to read it twice to make sure I hadn't missed something, some clue to the enigma that was Destructor, but I hadn't. Destructor was simply a metal can of awesome, and he kicked crocodile-man ass. I was going to do an Iron Man tribute cover, having been inspired by Ben Morse's ode to Tales of Suspense, but in the end I just had to do the comic's great, mostly wordless story justice, and show Destructor locked in mortal combat with a massive Croc-Man.





This is the moment when his arm is torn off, and the Croc-Man has yet to learn that that was not necessarily the best move to make. Not only does Destructor now have a five-fingered wingman, he's got a blunt instrument to swing. The scene as drawn by Matt Wiegle is awesome, which is why I tried to computer-color it, in an attempt to do more than lamely imitate Wiegle's amazing art. Eh. Not my forte. Here it is anyway.





Read "Destructor in: Prison Break," then buy both Destructor adventures in Murder.

You will have t-shirts of this made up, right Zach?! RIGHT??!!!

Zach Oat said...

Nah, STC wanted too much for the licensing rights. Besides, if I made a Destructor T-shirt, it would be of King Suckerman's amazing sketch.

Zach, this is possibly your greatest single achievement.

Action-PACKED! I can't tell which version I like more: B&W or color.
