Huckleberry Hero Hump-Day

Believe it or not...The Greatest American Hero

This week Huck goes back to 1980's prime time TV to portray teacher Ralph Hinkley, who was secretly The Greatest American Hero.
G.A.H. was the struggling super-hero who was given a super suit by aliens and a set of instructions, but unfortunately Ralph lost the instructions. Every week we got to watch Ralph learn how to use the suit "on the job" as he fights crime.
This usually meant watching Ralph trying to fly through the air like a baby bird learning to fly, not realizing how strong he is and usually destroying things accidentally while helping others.
The Greatest American Hero was a great TV show and hopefully it will be brought back as a new show or (as the current Hollywood trend is) a major motion picture.

As you may have noticed, I did this weeks Huckleberry Hero a little different. Instead of xeroxing the original pencils and using colored pencils for color, I inked this sketch and colored it with markers.
I wanted to do something a little different in honor of The Greatest American Hero.
