Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Pencils: Steve McNiven

SDCC Artists: Bordin Marsinkul

So, I was walking down Artist’s Alley at Comic Con and turned a corner to head to the rest of the convention floor when I saw this guy hunched over a paper, arms flying and whirling.

Bordin has to be the fastest artist that I saw that day. His work is incredible and he’s got a great style. For gifts, I commissioned three separate comic covers – Hulk, Spider-Man, and Iron Man.

When I handed him the first book, he asked what character I wanted, and I replied, “The Hulk”. He then asked “Which one?”

My reply? “Uhhhh… the incredible one?” (Apparently there are more Hulks in the Marvel Universe now, which I did not know)

These pieces are on actual comic books that are printed with blank card stock wrapped around the regular cover.  They were also each done, beginning to end in under 20 minutes each. To which I say, “Bordin – YOU are the incredible one”.

Apparently, there's an Indestructible Hulk.

Iron Man... shiny.

Iron Man… shiny.
