Gauntleted!

It's been quite a while since I've posted a Superhero-themed doodle here on the blog. Since I really have nothing of note to post at the moment (although I do have a few doozies up my sleeve), here's another one.

The drawing you see here is of a Marvel comics character called Thanos. I know almost nothing about him, other than he seems to be obsessed with death, and to his credit, he helped Captain Marvel on his journey beyond the veil in one of the first mainstream graphic novels ever, "The Death of Captain Marvel".

He's also obsessed with getting his hands on some accoutrement called the "Infinity Gauntlet". This magic glove supposedly has all kinds of benefits to the owner, but really, I couldn't care less about this character or his "bidness". The only reason I did this sketch is that I think that this guy looks cool. So cool in fact, that I bought an action figure of him. Said action figure sits on my desk, staring at me day after day, so I figured I'd draw him up and post him here. The image reflects only one of the possible uses I imagine the "Infinity Gauntlet" is good for.

For the curious, read more about Thanos here , and the Infinity Gauntlet here .

Next time: Enough of this Superhero stuff, and back to more mainstream, reader-friendly jocularity!

John- Thanks, buddy. The Kirby Krackle is harder to pull off than it looks. Not sure I hit a home run on that one.
