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.
A perennial favorite, this copy of Hulk #181 hits all of the marks, tight binding, razor sharp corners, and a light bright and immaculate illustration. The colors are always a pleasure to experience on this cover, but this example really shows off the intricacies of the background, and the red wash is even and unmarred by time. The Hulk is overdue for a new MCU appearance, and the rumors swirl around constantly regarding the X-Men’s introduction to the franchise, it goes without saying that, once a new Wolverine is cast, this comic will go through the roof, better get one now while you still can!
