"We labored long to build a heaven, only to find it populated with horrors. It is the oldest of ironies that are still the most satisfying."
The fierce hydra-burger is an exponential attack of delicious danger; cut one burger-head off and two more take its place.

Just want to mention that I plan on doing a whole series of these dudes, with hopefully some more surprises in store than just prints. On the off chance that both of these prints (and future breakable dudes) sell out, I will be reprinting a variant of them facing the opposite direction (with a slight change) so that any matchup is possible. I REALLY like making these dudes, and I hope people enjoy them enough to put them in their homes, so that others may imagine the ensuing battle.
Both of these dudes will be #SDCC exclusives, available at my table at the Nucleus booth (#2743).
Le génie du mal [The genius of evil, aka; Lucifer]; Guillaume Geefs
“The statue was originally a commission for Geefs’ younger brother Joseph, who completed it in 1842 and installed it the following year. It generated controversy at once and was criticized for not representing a Christian ideal.The cathedral administration declared that “this devil is too sublime.” The local press intimated that the work was distracting the “pretty penitent girls” who should have been listening to the sermons.” [x]

> Make sculpture of the devil
> No this sculpture is too hot for church
> Make another one
> It’s even hotter
