Herb Trimpe cvr/art; 1st full app. of Wolverine; the Action #1 of the Bronze Age (11/74); Comic Book Impact rating of 10 (CBI)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.
This copy of Hulk #181 earned an amazing 9.6 from CBCS, with off-white to white pages. This is essentially the Action #1 of the Bronze Age, and a stunning copy to be sure. The cover, which presents the first full appearance of Wolverine, facing off against Hulk and Wendigo, is so incredibly crisp, all of the colors truly pop. From the red background to the white text, to Wolverine's classic yellow and blue uniform, and let’s not forget the wonderful hues of The Hulk's emerald skin. This copy is as fresh and vibrant as most newly published books sitting on comic book store shelves today. Wolverine is one of the most well-known comic book characters of the last 50 years, as the beloved antihero continues to appear in countless movies, TV shows, video games, comics, toys, and other media, new generations of fans are constantly drawn to Incredible Hulk #181. This is a beautiful copy of one of the most sought-after and readily available comics of all time.
