Al Ewing vows not to work with Joe Bennett again as more antisemitic work resurfaces

‘Immortal Hulk is done, but I won’t be working with Joe again.’

Writer Al Ewing posted a Twitter thread today about his Immortal Hulk collaborator, artist Joe Bennett, in response to an antisemitic image Bennett drew in 2017 that has recently resurfaced on social media, calling it “reprehensible.”

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Ewing describes the image, which he does not share (and we won’t either), as depicting “an armoured swordsman, which I assume represents Bolsonaro given Joe’s commentary, slaughtering tiny, scurrying people, with the buck teeth and ears of rats. And big noses.”

“Even if it’s no longer up, that it was drawn in the first place, signed, and so proudly displayed by Joe speaks volumes,” Ewing wrote.

Ewing goes on to state that he will never again work with Bennett: “Immortal Hulk is done, but I won’t be working with Joe again. If people choose not to pick up my work with other artists in the future on the basis of my handling of this, I understand and accept that. If I’ve lost your trust, that’s on me.”

This isn’t the first time Bennett’s work has reflected antisemitism. Earlier this year, Bennett issued an apology for a panel in Immortal Hulk with offensive background imagery.
