I have wanted one of these for quite some time but they aren’t available very often. This strip is from 1979 and it contains a great action sequence with the Hulk doing battle with a “deadly robot.” I love the artwork on this strip, with Larry Lieber on pencils and Joe Sinnott on inks. Story by Stan “the man” Lee.
Well, my kids know me pretty well. A great Hulk t-shirt (love the classic John Romita Sr. artwork), an awesome Hulk/Hulkbuster set from PLAYSKOOL, and an Avengers notebook filled with drawings by my son = an INCREDIBLE HAUL! Any other Hulk hauls on Valentine’s Day this year?
It’s only halftime of the Super Bowl but I am sure that I have already seen the best commercial of the night. What starts out as a Hulk vs. Ant-Man battle for a can of coke turns out to be a team up as Ant-Man helps Hulk when his fingers prove too big to open the can. The commercial is chock full of jumping, smashing, and roaring but my favorite part is then end where Hulk delicately handles the can of Coke with pinky finger extended like he is at a tea party. Natasha’s lullaby at work? Enjoy!
See below for a great video capturing an MTV broadcast from Marvel Studios in February of 1992. As an art collector, I really wish art was still produced this way as I miss the dialog and word balloons on the page. As someone who probably had a mullet at this time, I do not miss the hair styles of 1992.
This was also a great time for Hulk fans as it coincides with Dale Keown’s magical run on the title. Issue 390 came out this month which is one of my favorite covers that Dale drew. In the beginning, all of the changes to the character (muscle shirt, merged personality, big guns, etc) did not appeal to my gamma sensebilities but Peter David’s writing and Dale’s artwork made me a true believer pretty quickly. The Pantheon, Rick Jones, … and who can forget the bunny slippers?!? Also out that month was Hulk crossing over into Spiderman issue 19.
80, that’s a big number and that is how old Sal Buscema turned today and he shows no signs of slowing down. Happy birthday Sal and thanks for all of the incredible memories that you created for this Hulk fan!
OK, gammabros here is a challenge. I picked up a fun transformation page a while back that was a bit of a stumper so I would like to see if anyone can name the page that this comes from. I already posted this to CAF so don’t check that site unless you aren’t able to name the page. Looking for the gammabro with the knowledge to name this page unassisted.
181 gamma points (honor system please) for the first to name it correctly. Go!
