Good pictures here:

APOD: 2010 November 5 - Comet Hartley 2 Flyby

Ya it looks kinda weird. Like a big gray mutated potato. Still neat to see these things up close when we all think of them as glowing, dusty things.

I never thought they were all just a roundish shape... that is quite odd looking though. Makes you wonder how bizarre looking these things can get.
