Bonus HGP bucks for using my own Solomon Stone drawing as an element. I've never cared too much about the Jays, but I suspect this new "Hitler Punching" strategy will certainly pay off this year.
Yes, I made this. And yes, I'm aware that the blue sunburst looks a little like the Japanese flag. But it gives it a nifty "Pop Art meets Op Art" feel, dammit. And if you click it, it gets slightly larger.
But, with a name like "Destroyer," I just expect a little more...well...destruction. Also his costume is the sort of thing you ONLY see in the Golden Age.
Ah well, Hitler Punching is like pizza. Even when it's not very good, it's still pretty damn good.
The Destroyer knocks the Fuhrer in the Kopf in Mystery Comics #9, with Pencils by Al Gabriele and inks by the hardworking Syd Shores. Image submitted by Olaf.
*Actually, upon review, he might be punching him, but there's just as good a chance he's kneeing him. But it's in the head. No doubt about that.

There's a lot of joy to be found here.
Thanks to The Alibear, who is going above and beyond the call of duty as a significant other, for sending me this. I'm stunned that she allows me to spend so much time hunting for Hitleriana, but to do so herself is pure love. The pure love of watching Hitler get punched. Mazel Tov, honey.
Blue Beetle lets his love light shine in Blue Beetle #32, artist and writer credits unknown. As usual, click to enlarge and think happy thoughts about Olaf for the submission.

Oh, and to the person who found us by googling "bea arthur rot in hell": watch it, buster.
Thanks. I'll make a note of that.
Jetpack Hitler eats boot in All-New Atom #14 (written by Gail Simone, with art by Mike Norton and Trevor Scott), of which more info can be found on Chris's Invincible Super Blog. Oddly, my fantastic fiancee Ali sent me this link. Odd, because I've been a pretty religious reader of the ISB for at least 3 years, and shouldn't have had to be reminded of such radness.
After my Solomon Stone punches Hitler pin-up hit the ISB, I've been inundated with new site hits, so I thought I'd take the time to reiterate this blog's mission and send out yet another request for reader submissions.
Hitler Getting Punched is an attempt to create a one-stop location for all your Hitler abuse needs here on this wonderful little internet. The vast majority of posts will, of course, be pre-existing anti-Hitler art from various sources, including comic books, propaganda posters, films, video games, or wherever it may be found. Preference in pre-existing subject matter is given in the following order:
- Hitler Getting Punched (the blog's raison d'etre)
- Hitler Getting Slapped
- Hitler Getting Kicked
- Hitler Getting Strangled
- Hitler Getting Stabbed
- Hitler Getting Otherwise Abused
- Hitler Getting Made a Fool Of
- Hitler Getting Denounced (Must be a particularly amusing denouncement)
This is an area we would love to expand our scope. I've created a couple of original works for this site already, and have received a few submissions from readers. But I would like more. A lot more. In fact, the only thing that will get preferential treatment over a classic Golden Age image of Hitler getting punched in the face is an original piece of Hitler Punching artwork submitted by you, the reader. Because I think the Hitler Punching Project (as I just decided to name it) should be a community event. I can't punch Hitler alone, people. Well, I can. But trust me, we can ALL punch Hitler together.
- Create an original work of Hitler-abuse in any medium you'd like. These can include, but are not limited, to any of the following:
- Send said material to HitlerPuncher @ gmail . com
- Include the name you would like to be credited with, as well as any information about the piece that you want in the post. If you have a website, by all means give the link.
- That's actually pretty much it.
- Oh, and your perceived level of "talent" is NOT an issue here. We want submissions from anyone and everyone. A stick figure done in crayon that is still recognizably Hitler getting punched is just as valid a form of expression as the finest piece of professional artwork. In this case it really is the thought that counts.
However, speaking from personal experience, drawing Hitler getting decked is, in many ways its own reward.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, our wordiest post to date. I promise the next one will have less reading and more Fuhrer-abuse.
As always, click to enlarge. This one is by comics legend Herb Trimpe, who I knew in my childhood as The Guy Who Drew G.I. Joe.

We've got an original Hitler-punching piece from Hayden War showing an angry Joe Strummer (circa 1982)* planning to give the Fuhrer a little chin music:
And really, if you can combine my personal twin loves of "the Clash" and "Hitler getting punched," you are a good man in my book.
*Or it could be Joe from 1984. In which case, Hitler better run, because that was not a happy time for Mr. Strummer, and he might need to let off some steam.

...is for sale.
Anyone got 750 bucks lying around?
Thanks again to Olaf for the link. Painting by John Watson, who has several more comics-inspired paintings for sale on that link, including a pretty sweet one of the Red Skull getting jacked in the jaw (little known Wolter trivia: Red Skull is second only to Hitler in the category of Nazis I Love To Watch Getting Punched).
Below is the original pen-and-ink sketch I drew of the Action Age's own Solomon Stone giving Hitler the back of his fist. The final, full color version can be found here (oh, and here). If you click on the version below, it gets pretty big...
Thanks to Chris Sims for creating a character so instantly awesome, that I knew he'd one day punch Hitler.

An effusion of thanks to Neil for this wondrous tribute to one of my favorite humans ever. And I'm not even kidding.
Gotta think Mussolini got the short end of the stick here: his disembodied head isn't just getting stepped on, it's getting stepped on by an android on fire.
Thanks again to Olaf for this image, which is from All-Winners #6, for which I unfortunately cannot find artist credits.

Apparently, Bucky has been getting lessons on efficiency from Spy Smasher.
This exciting example of boy-sidekick endangerment is from Young Allies #1, with pencils by Jack Kirby and inks (probably) by Syd Shores. Olaf is about to get his own special label if he keeps submitting these.

Except maybe punching him.
Thanks to rcs for tipping me off about this image. He located it here.
Okay, it's technically not Hitler, but it's a fun tribute. And I spent most of my childhood idolizing Snake Eyes, so this was a nostalgic joy to see.
This is an limited edition alternate cover for G.I. Joe America's Elite #1, made for Graham Cracker comics (which I actually have shopped at). Art by Nelson Blake and Rhys Yorke. More info here.
In point of fact, my original purpose of this blog was not only to find and post pictures by others, but to personally create an ongoing series of Fuhrer-Abuse-Centered artwork. The following picture began as a rough sketch about 2 days before I even had the idea to start this blog, and finally came to fruition when I realized a few days ago that I didn't have a Friday entry for this Tribute Week and frantically started drawing during my lunch breaks at work.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you:

THE VARIANT "CAP TRIBUTE" COVER TO THE ASTONISHING ADVENTURES OF STALIN & CALE #1!This probably requires a little backstory. Unfortunately, I'm not prepared to give it all away just yet. But rest assured, more will come of this. And when it does, you will never look at Harry Dean Stanton, Ted Nugent, or Finnish Nazi Archeologist Yrjö von Grönhagen the same ever again.
The following quote may prove illuminating, though only partially:
"I was staying at the Tropicana Hotel in Hollywood. One day we heard all this noise. We looked across the parking lot to the other side where the noise was coming from and suddenly the whole door of this room came flying out onto the balcony, and there stood John Cale. He couldn't work the doorknob, so he just knocked the door down,right off the hinges."Unless I find or receive another Tribute pic, this concludes Cap #1 Tribute Week. We now return you to your regularly scheduled Hitler-punching, already in progress.
A special tip o' the cap to Gene Mayes, the co-creator of the eventually upcoming Astonishing Adventures of Stalin & Cale. Stay tuned for more arcane viral marketing both here, and elsewhere. And of course a huge tip of the cap to Simon and Kirby, without whom not much of anything I like would be possible.

"No, seriously...sit still...
"Okay, fine. Don't move or Hitler doesn't get it.
This is a still from Hitler - Dead or Alive (I think you know which position HGP endorses). Hat tip to rcs for passing this image on to me. More info can be found here.
Legendary cartoonist Fred Hembeck takes a turn at parodying the classic Cap #1: could life be better? Probably.
But it could be a damn sight worse.
This picture is from Hembeck's series of Classic Cover Redos. Several originals are on sale here.

The King Has Spoken.
Olaf, who is edging out Flex in contributions here, submitted this original piece of Hitler art, which he claims to have found in "the private collection of D.J. Fontana." Great work!
Feel free to submit your own original works of Hitler-punchery to HitlerPuncher [at] gmail [dot] com.
But this? This is Gold.
As usual, click to enlarge.
If one has any doubts about the awesomeness of this image, let's review the checklist:
- Is Captain America being depicted? Check.
- Is he punching Hitler? Check.
- Is Hitler's frickin' head coming off? BIG check.
- Is frickin' ASH FROM THE EVIL DEAD TRILOGY taking on the role of trusty sidekick? Groovy check.
I think it's safe to assume this image is AWESOME.
Picture courtesy of the variant cover of Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness #1, and is painted by Arthur Suydam.

The real money shot starts around 15 seconds before the end, but there are plenty of Hitler-wizards and assorted Nazi soldiers to watch die before then.
I was never good enough to get this far, but I loved Wolfenstein 3D anyway. Any opportunity to shoot Nazis is a good opportunity.
And I obviously love to watch Hitler getting punched.
If only there were some way to combine the two...
Oh. Hell. Yes.
A winner is me.

I don't even know how to repay him for this:
Captain Berlin doesn't need this kind of trash in his town.
And, get this: there's a TRAILER!
Here it is folks, the image that started it all (click to enlarge):
For the next several days, HGP will be cataloguing those that paid homage to this iconic example of Hitler Fisticuffs. Are all of the tributes successful? Well, if you mean by creating an image as powerful and unforgettable as this: probably not.
But if you mean showing various interpretations of Hitler getting punched, then: Hell, yes.
Tune in tomorrow for the first tribute.
This classic image is, of course, Captain America #1 by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon. And it is just as glorious now as it was then.

Don't you know?

Click on the following to see a large version:
I have NO IDEA were this originally came from, who drew it, or exactly how serious they are. However, this is clearly some sort of Wizard's Battle between Stalin and Hitler. In Russian and German.
A digression: this drawing's subject matter is a serendipitous concidence, but I cannot elaborate on the reason why just yet.
A further digression: I suspect it will be DAYS before I will stop laughing at "NEIN!"
Thanks to The Alibear for hooking me up with this bafflingly sweet comic.
PSEUDO-EDIT/FINAL DIGRESSION: I have had this entry scheduled for nearly a week, sitting in the queue with my ignorance in view for no one but myself (or possibly Flex) to see, when Olaf sent me this link this morning: THE FULL COMIC WITH TRANSLATIONS! I decided to leave the original entry intact, as a document to my childlike sense of wonder upon first seeing this. Now I'm off to actually read this work of what is either genius or insanity.
The Award-winning Short from 2004 now on MySpace. Three drinking buddies get hold of a time machine and decide to go back in time to punch Adolf Hitler every single day of his life.

That's almost Mike Mignola awesome.
This sweetness appeared in the one-shot, Tales From the Bully Pulpit, by Benito Cereno and Graeme MacDonald. I discovered its existence here, and MUST one day read this in its entirity.
A special shout-out to all who created this and/or distributed it, for giving me an opportunity to create a "Lincoln Punching Hitler" tag. It made my day.

As Allied forces march on this once proud capital, a war-weary world sees a glimmer of hope for an end to the nightmare of Totalitarian aggression. The Russians may have hit Berlin first, but in a gesture of sadly fleeting solidarity with their American allies, they step aside for Captain America to punch the hell out of Hitler one last time.
But that Nasty Nazi isn't going down without a fight - and the Fantastic Fists of this Fascist-Facing Force For Freedom wouldn't have it any other way!
Go get 'im, Cap! And then get to work on Tojo's Terrible Tuchus!
I have found this picture all over the internet, but have no idea who originally created it. Whomever it was, this is country-fried Bad-Assed smothered in Hell Yeah gravy.
Mickey Mouse is the most miserable ideal ever revealed...Healthy emotions tell every independent young man and every honorable youth that the dirty and filth-covered vermin, the greatest bacteria carrier in the animal kingdom, cannot be the ideal type of animal...Away with Jewish brutalization of the people! Down with Mickey Mouse! Wear the Swastika Cross!You know what HGP has to say about that?
Olaf, we are running out of hats to tip to you. Artwork by Steve Simmons, whose site has a lot of other pretty cool artwork that you should check out.
Note: I actually loved this picture so much that I let it skip to the front of our ever-growing queue of anti-Hitler pics. Honestly, talking smack about Mickey? In my hood, you can get a slap for that.
Yeah, that's what I thought. Punk.
Mike Mignola drew this slab of Incredible for the cover of Michael Chabon Presents the Amazing Adventures of the Escapist #3. And in it, all of the radness that humanity is capable of is achieved.

I've actually seen this movie. And it is not Nestor Paiva's finest work. Also, the actual movie has a painfully unconvincing Hitler head in a jar, not a disembodied brain. Thanks to David Soderlund for reminding me of how bad it was.
A link-dump is the epitome of laziness, but this is kinda cool, yet somewhat outside of our purview:
Thanks to CT for the heads-up.
No, seriously, read this book. It's outstanding. You'll love it. Even if you aren't a totally backwards comics nerd like Flex.I'm not really sure who drew this cover, but if anyone could contact me with the information, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks to Ben Handfelt for the heads up on this pic. In addition to his own blog, Ben contributes regularly to Thunder Matt's Saloon, a site I also contribute to on a quasi-regular basis - although my posts tend to center less around celebrating Hitler's glass jaw, and more around Iron Maiden.

In it, Adolf Hitler and Hermann Göring were a pair of scruffy ne'er-do-wells that "usually embroiled in a scam that went wrong" (per the BBC).
Addie and Hermy were the creation of Sam Fair. Thanks to Purple Hayes for cluing us in to this despicable duo.
