DESCRIPTION
A 15% BUYER'S PREMIUM WILL BE ADDED TO THIS ITEM AT CONCLUSION OF THE AUCTION
ow/white pgs; Jack Kirby written pg 1; QES Certified: Criteria met: impressive prime focal area + sharp right edge with no chipping + deep color strike (red, black & blue)
Kirby cover/art; origin & 1st app. Hulk, Rick Jones, Betty Ross, & General Ross
Inspired 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.


Bearing the stamp of quality from QES, this is one impressive copy of the first appearance of one of Marvel’s top properties, The Incredible Hulk. This issue has proven to be one of the most valuable keys of the Marvel Age, and with many rumors about the Hulk’s resurgence in the MCU, and a Disney+ She-Hulk series about to launch, things have never looked brighter for a bump up in value for this already formidable book. Your friends will be green (or gray) with envy if you happen to have the patience and determination to land this attractive copy. Noted by QES for an impressive prime focal area, sharp right edge with no chipping, and deep color strike, this is a perfect target for bidders searching for this classic comic but finding themselves outgunned for top-tier copies.
