Stan Lee and Jack Kirby kept the Marvel Age on a winning streak with the debut of Incredible Hulk #1, with the book becoming yet another Silver Age key and top collectible. In addition to introducing readers to Dr. Bruce Banner and his brutal alter-ego, this timeless classic marks the first appearances of Betty Ross, Rick Jones, and General "Thunderbolt" Ross (the latter set to remain a major part of the Disney+ Marvel Universe). The iconic cover image continues to resonate with fans to this day.

Stan Lee wasn't happy, however. He demanded a change after seeing the original botched coloring process for the Hulk's debut. The second issue would change the Hulk from a blotchy gray to his green-skinned glory. Hulk would then survive his own title’s quick cancellation to keep thrilling comics fans, eventually coming back with a top-selling book and a hit '70s television show. From there, the Hulk’s return to the big-screen Avengers reignited the public’s passion for both the troubled hero and his alter-ego of Dr. Bruce Banner.

This striking 8.0 CGC-graded copy of The Incredible Hulk #1, from May 1962 features a classic Stan Lee and Jack Kirby story presenting the first appearances of the Hulk, Rick Jones, Betty Ross, and General Ross. This marks a major cornerstone for the Marvel Universe and comics as a whole. The vivid yellow hues of the enthralled onlookers match the title logo, and the central figures of Banner and the Hulk are incredibly sharp. This issue was a stepping stone in the creation of the Marvel Age. The Hulk has starred in countless MCU movies and recently crossed over to TV as well, in the Disney+ series “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.” This comic has exhibited growth as unstoppable as the titular hero and has been a favorite of investment bidders in our Event Auctions for many years.
