The Red Skull

Nothing says Easter like posting a depiction of a comic book, Nazi super-villain. I happened upon a Jack Kirby Captain America trade on my shelf and, while flipping through it, saw a great issue with a maniacal looking Red Skull. I always loved how Kirby drew the Red Skull with a large brow, uneven eyes, crooked teeth, and a chin weaker than grandma's. It made him look that much creepier. So, inspired, I banged out this little number instead of hitting the gym. Happy Easter from the Red Skull family to you and yours.




So sinister..

Sad how he never could afford a proper ascot and just wrapped a gym towel around his neck.
