Rom commision art for Rick Hansen by IDW artist Thomas Zahler

LinkUsually I'm not a big fan of caricature style renderings of characters unless it's in MAD magazine or as a political cartoon but this one is an exception.

You may also recognize Zahler's work from IDW's Love & Capes title.

    1. thanks for bringing this to my attention Rick. it's always good to be the first to display new fan art before it starts making the rounds all over the net.
