Spurs of the Moment

Another great illustration by Brian Bolland, but again I have no idea where it's from. It was a stat in my Marvel UK folder from the 80's but that's all I can tell you. Looks to me like it would have been used to illustrate a text story, but that's just a guess.

  1. Wonderful artwork, but I don't believe it ever ran in any Marvel UK comic - I'm sure that I would have remembered seeing it back when I was cataloguing all Annuals, it being such as stand-out piece and all :-)

    It could well be a victim of Brian's unhappiness with what happened to his cover for Hulk Comic #1, where a US drawn Hulk head was then pasted over the one he'd drawn prior to it being used on the first issue. The original artwork wasn't lost at the time, though, as it eventually turned up (now re-coloured) as a glossy centre-spread A3 poster in the first edition of a later Hulk series called The Incredible Hulk which ran during 1982.
