A Heck Of A Herc!

Don Heck & George Roussos


I ran across the poster-shot above of Hercules as rendered by Dashing Don Heck for an Avengers annual. I was struck again how the Heck version of Hercules is an absolute match for then-famous he-man Hercules star Steve Reeves.

  1. Note how the Dell cover goes against tradition and gives Herc (gasp) a nipple!

  2. Your recent run of Sub-Mariner splash pages really brought that peculiarity to mind. Namor was the one hero who it looked strange on for obvious reasons as he was shirtless all the time.

    When Conan showed up with nipples in Conan the Barbarian #6 they seemed downright unnatural. Sheesh, what a time!
