Mac Raboy, 1943
Current desktop. I always assumed this was a C.C. Beck drawing but to be honest I don’t know. Either way, it’s always been one of my favorites.
Anonymous said: Doc, I wish you could draw Beast always and forever. What do you think of Nicholas Hoult vs. Kelsey Grammer as Beast in the films?
Haha, thanks! I certainly would given the chance. Beast is the character that got me into superhero comics so I’d love to have the opportunity to draw something with him in it.
Regarding the movies, I’ve only seen Hoult in First Class, but I liked his take well enough. He’s sort of tall and skinny for what I think of Hank but I liked it for what it was. I’m curious to see Days of Future Past. I liked Grammer just fine too, I think it was mostly that he was in a movie that I’ll never watch again. With Grammer I had trouble buying the “look” of him, which isn’t his fault necessarily. The bits with him swinging around and fighting were fun. It is hard for me to connect the two as being the same character though.
Calling Dr. Howard…
So, probably about time to put away these monthlies.
