DESCRIPTION
CGC #1994784006, Off-White to White pages
Herb Trimpe cvr/art; 1st full app. of Wolverine; the Action #1 of the Bronze Age (11/74)
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. 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. Hands down, this is the best-known of all Bronze Age keys, and the first Bronze book to break the $10,000 sales mark. With an X-Men reboot planned, this is a comic every collector should add to their checklist.




Artists Information

Jack Abel was an American comic book artist best known as an inker for leading publishers DC Comics and Marvel Comics. He was DC's primary inker on the Superman titles in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and inked penciler Herb Trimpe's introduction of the popular superhero Wolverine in The Incredible Hulk #181. He sometimes used the pseudonym Gary Michaels.

Herb Trimpe was an American comics artist and occasional writer, best known as the seminal 1970s artist on The Incredible Hulk and as the first artist to draw for publication the character Wolverine, who later became a breakout star of the X-Men. During his career he would draw nearly every character in the Marvel stable, and a few that weren't including memorable work he provided for Marvel's 1980's licensed titles for Godzilla, Shogun Warriors and The Transformers.

John Romita was one of the driving forces behind Marvel's Silver Age, he took up the reins on Spider-Man following the departure of Steve Ditko with issue #38. Romita's run on Spider-Man would be long and significant, introducing characters including Mary Jane Watson, the Kingpin and many others. He would be a major contributor to the entire Marvel line throughout the 1970s including designing the look of The Punisher.
