Geist by Zach Oat

I wanted to do an homage for my piece, and the minute I started to think about famous comic covers to emulate, Silver Surfer #4 popped into my head, with Thor fighting the Surfer. Mostly because it's so damn famous, but also because it had a flying character fighting a standing character, which worked for Geist and his opponent, whoever he was going to be. I almost made it Turbine, but then I decided to go with Brutal, since he's bulky like Thor and he has a bad history with Geist.





This is the first thing I've drawn in a looong time. You can check out all my old comic strips at my old Angelfire site, and of course, you can buy Justin Aclin's Hero House on Amazon.

It's the Epsilon house! I used Justin's book as reference. (In the original cover, that's where Asgard was.)
