Ali vs. Frazier, King Kong vs. Godzilla, Ninjas vs. Pirates- all great rivalries. But one of my favorites comes from the American Civil War battle of the Merrimack vs. the Monitor. It was the first battle in the world between two armored ships, and as a kid I thought it was so cool that these two indestructible ships were pounding away at each other for hours, but neither one could even make a dent. I only wish there was some common enemy that could unite the two rivals...



This is part 2 of a trilogy of American history designs featuring "what if?" scenarios with giant robots. This one is one color ink on a creme shirt.

Thanks for the great comments, and thanks to the folks on the critique board who were such a big, Atlantean-robot sized help.
