Kirby cover/art; origin & 1st app. Hulk, Rick Jones, Betty Ross, & General RossInspired 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.
This copy of Incredible Hulk #1 carries a miraculous 9.8 grade from CBCS with white pages. This beautiful book contains the first appearances of the Hulk, Rick Jones, General Ross, & Betty Ross. This copy was professionally restored with extensive color touch, pieces added to the cover, the cover and centerfold reinforced, spine splits sealed, tear seals to cover and interior, cover cleaned and reglossed, staples replaced, and the interiors lightened. The restoration was extensive, but highly successful, resulting in such a fantastically high grade. Although restoration may slightly detract from the value, nothing can detract from the historic importance of this book. With countless MCU appearances, multiple movies and shows, and an upcoming Disney+ She-Hulk show, the Incredible Hulk is a permanent part of pop culture.
