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.
Having appeared in countless comics, cartoons, videogames, and movies, Wolverine is one of the most popular comic-book characters of all time. This copy of Incredible Hulk #181, Wolverine's first full appearance, earned a CGC 9.2, with off-white to white pages. This iconic Herb Trimpe cover looks incredibly beautiful here, with a sharp red background staging the battle between Hulk, Wolverine, and the Wendigo. A 9.2 copy recently sold for $19,800. With increasing rumors of the X-Men joining the MCU, this comic has plenty of room to grow in the next few years.
