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.
Incredible Hulk #181, the first appearance of the mighty Wolverine, is one of the most sought-after comics of all time. This copy earned an amazing 8.0 from CGC, with off-white pages. The Hulk, Wolverine, and Wendigo all truly pop off of the cover as they fight. With increasing rumors of the X-Men joining the MCU and the never-ending popularity of Wolverine, this key book is poised to take off even further in the coming years.
