Hookjaw in the raw
With kind permission of owner and top bloke Rufus Dayglo, thought you might like to see a classic page from the strip in its original form.
Its a perfect example of why Sola was THE artist for me on Action: slightly caricatured to the gritty end of the scale humans, highly original gore scenes and bizarro notions - why are the hammerheads up in the air.
Forget Tharg. Back then, Hookjaw was "The Mighty One" and no mistake. And so was Ramon Sola.
If the proposed new stories do go ahead it does beg the question - what on earth can an artist do to top this in the shock stakes? Not much i reckon.
