Tarantino Comics - Issue 39

Completed at the CGS Super Show 2013, Tarantino Comics #39 was illustrated by Avery Butterworth.

Inspired by Inglourious Basterds, Avery recreated the powerful (and slightly comedic) introduction of Hugo Stiglitz.  Since he's great with inks, Avery decided to make this issue look like an old tattered funny book found in a damp box of your grandmother's basement. Given the legend of the character, this presentation is quite suitable for the German soldier who murdered 13 Gestapo officers.  Although the humongous font showcasing Hugo Stiglitz's name is absent, you know it's him by the way he's standing in front of subtlety drawn trees... and the way he's holding a giant MG42.

If you've followed this blog in the past, you may of seen Avery's work on the "Final Issue" of Tarantino Comics (click here).  I've known Avery for quite a while now and he's a phenomenal artist whose art I've collected over the years.  If you want to see some of his older pieces, check them out here:
