The long awaited project is here! Green Noise is a full comic book story featuring Hulk and Spider-man! I've been been working on this for a while in between doing other work. Its a portfolio/resume/free comic book I've been wanting to do for a long time to showcase my story telling/sequential art. Its also for YOU the fan to read and enjoy. All art chores, pencils, paints, layouts, lettering are done by me Vinnie Tartamella. The writing was done by my brother Frankie Tartamella. We came up with a fun little story together to showcase some of the characters we love and enjoy, and we hope that you will enjoy them too. [link]
