INCREDIBLE HULK #1
Publisher:
Marvel
Grade:
CGC VF-: 7.5
Inspired by Jekyll & Hyde and the Jewish myth of the Golem, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby kept their Silver Age hot streak running with the big and brutal Hulk. This issue preys on Cold War fears of nuclear annihilation and the average boy's body discomfort to create one of the most haunting and affecting of hero origins. Initially colored grey in his premiere appearance, the character was quickly reworked into a big green beast when the primitive four-color printing process mangled the grey color scheme throughout the book, altering the goliath's hue from page to page. The famous cover image still resonates with fans to this day.

While the initial run didn't sell in numbers big enough to be considered viable in the long term, the Hulk kept popping up in anthologies and guest spots alongside favorites such as the Fantastic Four until he returned to his own title after developing a following through his involvement with the Avengers.

The superiority of this 7.5 copy of Incredible Hulk #1 amazes with its incredibly rich, dark background, making the otherwise drab monster pop as he looms over his meeker self. The tonality of this cover is quite striking as the colors used in its composition tend to fade the fastest.

Overstreet Guide 2019 VF- (7.5) value = $44,925.
