8/52 - Solomon Grundy

Do you guys know that DC has its own version of the Hulk and he is a zombie who used to be a mobster? And he's named after a nursery rhyme? Yeah I don't know what's up with that either.


  1. Solomon Grundy,
    Born on a Monday,
    Christened on Tuesday,
    Married on Wednesday,
    Took ill on Thursday,
    Grew worse on Friday,
    Died on Saturday,
    Buried on Sunday.
    That was the end,
    Of Solomon Grundy.

    I've always liked this character. Even back in the 80s on the Superfriends cartoon. I didn't even understand what he was supposed to be back then, but something about his look and name always appealed to me.

  2. Solomon Grundy is such a great character when done right, however bizarre he is. My favorite versions of him are in Batman Dark Victory and in the Justice League Unlimited cartoon. Good times. This is a great piece of art by the way! wonderful textures and lines!
