News Design: Hulk

Here's the cover to Eye on Entertainment, a tabloid supplement published by The Bakersfield Californian. While the idea of knocking together a cover using "spinner rack" design styles isn't exactly fresh, the overall presentation here is top-notch.

While we're talking about the Hulk, I ought to mention that I'm a real fan of this film. I thought it was ballsy that Ang Lee conned Universal and Marvel into spending $180 million on a movie about the long-term consequences of domestic violence. The overall style — classical tragedy meets cartoonish ultra-violence — was also really interesting and reminded me of that old Bugs Bunny cartoon What's Opera, Doc? It was as serious as it was goofy.

That being said, I completely understand how the folks who just wanted to see the Hulk tear shit up might have been disappointed in the film.
