The Hulk vs The Leader's Humanoid! 1979 Albert Bigley Original Comic Art! Marvel Comics?!

Another blast from my past, trotted out for your entertainment and mirth! Here is my full-color re-interpretation of the classic Silver Age 1964 slug-fest we all recall! That's right, its a hapless Hulk fighting the evil Humanoid robot! As any hardcore Marvel fan can remember, the Leader, that deadly high-hat super-genius, sent his indestructible (even Hulk can't put a dent in them) Humanoids to rob, plunder, and create general mayhem in his name! I was (at age 14 in 1979) digging such adventures on the afternoon MARVEL SUPERHEROES cartoon reruns, and, once the episodes were over, wanted to memorialize each mind-bending scene in my art, in those pre-VCR days! Seems like that summer I did nothing but draw inspiration from mid-60s HULK tales, as you can see here! Click to enlarge!

Below: Steve Ditko's actual depiction of the above scene (he did it a tad better), from a Silver Age TALES TO ASTONISH issue!
