Tankfist Steelhammer – Mightiest of the Mighty by 

My entry for the redbubble NYCC challenge

Left for dead by the last surviving frost giant while hiking in Norway, small-time strongman/metal singer/z-list celebrity Lars Luftson was rescued by a mysterious wizard and reborn as the indomitable warrior the world now knows as Tankfist Steelhammer!

With his volcano-forged limbs and wielding the long-lost Mjolnir, hammer of Thor, Tankfist seeks out evil wherever it lurks, and beats it into trembling submission. Not even the Devil himself, and his pet spinoraptors are a match for this titan of muscle and metal…

Raised on a diet of Doctor Who, Tolkien, Dungeons & Dragons and comic books, Simon Sherry has been making monsters from the moment he could put a crayon to a flat surface. Combining elements of post-apocalyptic science-fantasy, post-human horror and a black sense of humour; Simon’s work is preoccupied with notions of humankind’s ability to determine the course of its own fate in the face of forces larger than itself.

    YESSSSSSSS!! Love that improbable steel jaw on the the beast!

  • Well, it ain’t a proper beast if it doesn’t have impossible anatomy!

    Yeah, I definitely prefer the version with the logo. It has more punch.

    Oh, and I think Thor’s going to be really pissed when he finds out someone swiped his hammer!

  • Nah – this Mjolnir has a mind of its own and kicked that knucklehead to the curb post-ragnarok ;o)

    Fuck Si – just catchin up mate – love it love it love it.

    Ahhhh I’ve missed the Si goodness. Awesome buddy.
  • Thanks Steve – perhaps we’ll have to do a team-up piece with TF and the Colonel some time in the future ;o)

    Tank Fist and The Colonel team-up would be awesome. You know what I’ve never seen before? Two artists drawing separate characters within the same panel. What if the colonel somehow crossed over into Tank Fist’s dimension and maintained his ausven styling from his native dimension? That would be cool.

  • hmmm, a cross-stylistic team up of multi-dimensional proportions, you say… that would be interesting…

    Awesome work as usual Simon.
    Loving Steelhammer especially. What does a lethal looking hammer need? Why a sword of it’s own surely.
    Got my vote.

  • Damn straight – why just pound your enemies into powder when you can fillet them as well ;o) Thanks for the vote!
