Abominations_i03_p0203_Medina-Vancata
A follow-up tale from the Incredible Hulk storylines “Ghosts of the Past” and Future Imperfect, in the past, the Abomination scolds the homeless people he protects for venturing up to the surface as Betty #6 goes into labor with her child and Char lies dying in the underground tunnels. Po, a large rebel who had been knocked unconscious during the fight with the Police, awakens and is instantly angered by the site of the Abomination of the past. He grabes a pipe and attacks the Abomination, who shrugs off the attack and flings Po across the tunnel. Meanwhile, Shulk arrives in the past in great pain. Kaspin senses something wrong with her brain, but Shulk shrugs it off and burrows underground to find Betty #6. Shulk finds the underground tunnels and is confronted by the past Abomination. Shulk and the past Abomination do battle, and she succeeds in smashing him through the tunnel. The rebels attack Shulk to protect the baby, but are quickly defeated. She is poised to kill Betty #6, who informs Shulk that the baby is not actually the Maestro's. Betty #6 tells Shulk that it was a lie simply to save herself and the rebels from the mutates. Shulk hesitates, but is still ready to kill them when she suddenly collapses. Kaspin is the cause of her collapse, as he cannot allow her to kill a helpless baby. The Abomination smashes back into the tunnel only to find Shulk near death. Shulk calls the Abomination over to her and whispers something to him that only he can hear before she dies.

These pages are a spectacular double truck (two page spread) laying out the players for the reader.

This is really amazing and you should look at it at a larger size by clicking through. Fantastic double truck (two page spread) that looks really phenomenal up close. One of the things I’ve come away with from looking at the pages I have from this series, is a real respect for the draftsmanship Angel Medina has in all his work (or at least the pages I’ve seen) and Brad Vancata does a great job inking them (and you can tell because you can see the underdrawing).
