Awesome!  Hopgood's art looks possibly even better in glorious black and white.

Yeah i agree. They should bring him back for an Iron Man special or mini-arc.

My favourite artist of all time. I have his rendition of TOny's death bed scene. Incredible.

 That's some really nice stuff you have there.

I bought these pages directly from him at a comic art convention in London about 12/13 years ago. While chatting to him he said (at that time) he was getting out of comics and into video gme work.
I have no idea what he`s up to now. Really nice guy and lucky for me he was selling his work cheap to clear space!!!! I think I paid about $20 a page.
He did have a page with the Hulkbuster armour but for some reason I did`nt buy it. I don`t remember why, did`nt have enough money left (poorer back then!) or it just did`nt grab me.

I did a little reasearch after I posted thses pictures and it turns out that Kevin Hopgood lives about 4 miles from me!!!
He still is in the business (not sure if he is doing any comics but he is a professional illustrator) and I have arranged to go around to his home next week to get him to sign the panels I have.  Cool Cool
