My buddy ZANDER CANNON has a young son, JIN, and Jin is KA-RAAAAAAZY about ULTRAMAN.  Zander recently asked me to do a drawing of ULTRAMAN that would be hung with pride on Jin’s wall.  I am already at least 3 pin-ups deep in debt to Zander, so ‘No’ wasn’t an option (not that I’d have said no anyway).  But to sweeten an already sweet and flattering pot Zander told me whatever I did would be hanging next to an ULTRAMAN by GEOF DARROW, and who could say no to THAT?!  Also…the pressure was now on full-blast.  This is what I came up with:
