"The Avengers: Red Wings Initiative," Issue 16

Welcome to the sixteenth issue of The Avengers: Red Wings Initiative. Last week, we had that great issue of Jonathan Ericsson and Pavel Datsyuk going head-to-head in a battle of wits and dangles.

This week, it’s Henrik Zetterberg and Niklas Kronwall getting in on the arguing action.

I mean, this Lidstrom thing dates back to Ericsson’s introduction to the comic, which was the third issue.

I don’t know why, but I feel like this is one of the better panels I’ve drawn, quality-wise. I’m a fan of the shading and that everyone looks like themselves but also their Marvel counterparts. Plus, I like the Black Sabbath-to-Red-Wings-Hockey shirt on Kronwall.

Come back next week when Jimmy Howard and Ericsson square off against each other. Poor Coulson… I mean Howard…

Next Installment: Wednesday, September 10!
