Pre-HeroesCon - The Beast

I am packing to head out the door for the long drive to Orlando first, to pick up artist Joe Pekar, and then onward to Charlotte. I won't be posting commentary for each day but there will be art! And who wants to read what I have to say anyway? :) I will be posting from the show on Twitter so I you want to you can follow me at

Today we have the Beast from Marvels X-Men and Avengers in his classic blue furry version. This is ink on 11" x 17" Strathmore Bristol Board.

You and Joe driving to Charlotte... talk about a fun ride!

Nice Beast you have there. Hey! Watch the comments. ; )

Great Beast and this is my fav version...Have a great show, wish I could have made it down but even if I had planned on it last night storms in Pittsburgh sealed it for me....all I can say is putting my long boxes of comics on a pallet to keep them off the ground may have been the brightest idea I've had in the last 10 years.

Lan Pitts said...

Very cool. Did you use anybody for a reference for his face?

Gary M. Peiffer said...

Great Beast, reminds me of the characters high point during the Perez Avenger days!

Drive safely to the Con, make sure Joe chips in for the gas!

Way to go Gene!
