Captain Wally vs The Hulk

One of the enjoyable things about creating strips for Marvel UK was having fun adding classic Marvel characters to my stories on occasion. For example, in this episode of Captain Wally where the Hulk visits suburban England. It was published in Spider-Man weekly in 1985.

Captain Wally was one of my first professional comic series and I had a blast. Is it canonical in the Marvel Universe? Well, I'd like to think so. I'm waiting for the MCU to announce a Captain Wally movie any day now. Or maybe when they've covered the zillion other characters. 

My original artwork for this story is part of my eBay listings this week. The auction ends on Sunday 25th February. Here's the link and all bids will be appreciated!

Very nice Lew. One of your earlier works, but I can clearly see how you’ve developed from that “style” in the years since. 👏👏

Thanks Geoff. I'm still pleased with how it turned out although I was learning as I went along. There's quite a Mike Higgs influence in this one I think, as I'd been his assistant about 18 months earlier.

Are you joking about Captain Wally getting his own movie Lew?

I'm afraid so, Ben. I can't see Marvel ever doing a movie about a humour character. Captain Wally is too British in its humour for a worldwide movie anyway. ("Wally" is just a name in the USA.)
