Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
Our old pal Wayne Nichols, who previously showed up on CBR INK for designing a WWII tattoo sleeve, is at it again. He recently posted the following image sent to him by a fan, of a brand new sleeve tattoo based on one of his “Star Wars” pages.
The page is based on one of Nichols’ illustrations from the “Star Wars: The Force Unleashed” graphic novel based on the LucasArts’ video game. Written by “Batwoman” co-writer W. Haden Blackman, the book featured art by Nichols, Brian Ching and Bong Dazo.
Here is Nichols’ original pencils on which the tattoo is based:
Sadly, LucasArts was shuttered earlier this month following Disney’s purchase of parent company Lucasfilm last Ocotber.

Man, “Full Throttle” was such a cool game…
