INCREDIBLE HULK #181

Grade:
CGC NM/M: 9.8
Born of a desire to diversify the Marvel roster by adding international heroes, and inspired by the feisty, ill-tempered animal that is his namesake, Wolverine quickly became the breakout character of Marvel's Bronze Age, and this first appearance is the closest thing that era has to an Action Comics 1. This book is a demarcation between what came before and what comes after, as this dark, brooding anti-hero flew in the face of all previous conventions and came to define the cynical, haunted heroes of the Bronze and Copper Age, in much the same way the neurotic, surreal adventures of Spider-Man and the FF came to define Marvel's Silver Age. Hands down the best-known of all Bronze Age keys, and the first Bronze book to break the $10,000 sales mark.

This copy has stunning corners, a gorgeous spine and great color. What is keeping this book from a 9.9 or a 10, we cannot imagine.
