Meet Kagan McLeod, the Artist Behind the She-Hulk Credit Art

Have you wondered who is behind the arresting, courtroom-style artwork that appears in the end credits of each episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, the Marvel Cinematic Universe series currently streaming on Disney+? The answer is: Toronto-based illustrator Kagan McLeod! In a tweet sent on Thursday, August 18th, 2022, the artist revealed that he had been working with the Emmy Award-winning Aspect Agency to create “loads of art” for the She-Hulk end credits.

The end credits sequence for the first episode of She-Hulk, “A Normal Amount of Rage,” which was written by Jessica Gao and directed by Kat Coiro, featured many illustrations by McLeod of the She-Hulk and her alter-ego, Jen Walters, as portrayed by Tatiana Maslany. While many of the images depicted courtroom scenes, others replicated some non-courtroom scenes from the episode, including Mark Ruffalo’s “Smart Hulk” at his hideaway in Mexico, Walters using a conspiracy board in an attempt to decipher Captain America’s love life, and a scene in which Shulkie poses with some cosplayers on the street.

However, there were plenty of illustrations that featured content that was perfectly fitted to the courtroom sketch style. These included a lawyerly She-Hulk holding up an evidence bag with an “Avengers” mug in it, and several images of both She-Hulk and Walters in court (or approaching court).

In Tweeted responses to comments responding to his announcement, McLeod confirmed that the images are “[s]upposed to have a courtroom feel. When asked whether or not the illustrations might eventually appear in a physical collection, McLeod responded that he didn’t know and that the assignment was “[w]ork for hire, it’s Disney art now!”

McLeod’s previous work includes other comics projects, and he isn’t the only one working on She-Hulk with comics on his resume. Two writers who have previously scripted for Marvel Comics will respectively write two later episodes of the season: Zeb Wells (Hellions, Amazing Spider-Man) and Cody Ziglar (ASM, Spider-Punk). And another episode writer, Melissa Hunter, was behind the 2013 web series Adult Wednesday Addams, a depiction of an adult version of the comic character who originated in The Addams Family comics by cartoonist Charles “Chas” Addams.

The first season of She-Hulk is currently streaming on Disney+, with new episodes released on Thursdays. The season will include nine episodes, with the season finale scheduled for release on Thursday, October 13th, 2022. It is the final streaming series of the MCU’s fourth phase.
