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.
The first full appearance of fan-favorite Marvel mutant Wolverine, Incredible Hulk #181 is an iconic book. This copy earned a 5.0 from CGC, with beautiful white pages. The cover's red background is very bright, it almost feel as though Wolverine is jumping off the page. This book is extremely desirable in any grade. Another 5.0 copy recently sold for $5,699. Having enjoyed enormous success in the X-Men movie franchise, Wolverine is now a household name. With the X-Men joining the MCU in the next few years, their key issues are great investment pieces, and are set to continue rapidly increasing in value.
