Off-Model Madness! The Incredible Hulk?! Shrek? Kermit? Marvel Comics?!

I saw this colorful patch at a recent comics show, and had to snag a pic! Its' based, of course, on the cacophonous cover art (by Jack "King" Kirby) from 1964's TALES TO ASTONISH #60, but hasn't embroidery technology improved in the last decades to a point where Hulk doesn't have to look so darned goofy?! Sure, patches from the past suffered from having to be rendered in the most simplistic way, using large chunks of color, and strong poses with minimal detailing, but...WOW! Ol' Jade Jaws looks like a Muppet version of Shrek here! Click to enlarge!
