DESCRIPTION

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.





One of the founding Avengers and an icon of Marvel Comics for decades to come, The Hulk is a household name across the planet. First released in May 1962, The Incredible Hulk #1 by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee introduced audiences to the muscle-bound mammoth, as well as popular supporting characters Rick Jones, Betty Ross, and General Ross. With a black background on its cover and a smaller-than-usual print run, Hulk #1 is particularly difficult to find in high grades. This gorgeous book features vibrant cover copy, including the iconic logo, as well as a very sharp rendition of the Banner/Hulk transformation, a major key like this only becomes more valuable and desirable over time.
