That’s Eugene Judd aka Puck. Puck was created by John Byrne and first appeared in the comic Alpha Flight #1 in 1983. What made Puck unique in the Marvel universe was that he was a dwarf and he had no super powers. He was a great acrobat and a fighter who loved to scrap. I thought the character had a lot of potential.
The drawing above is by Kalman Andrasofszky who absolutely gets Puck! I’d love to see him illustrate a Puck mini-series or graphic novel. Here’s what Kalman had to say about his drawing…
Eugene Milton Judd. The original Saskatchewan badass. In my head cannon this guy’s a bruiser who can really take punishment and kinda likes it. Some notes: toned paper is everything, I may never go back. Puck’s body hair is as much a part of his costume as anything. Would you draw Spider-man without webbing? No? No body hair, it’s not Puck.
