Hulk corner box images: issues 292 – 300

Hulk corner box transformationI have always been a fan of the corner box artwork on comic book covers. They are part of the signature of a comic for a specific era and/or artist duration on a book. As such, I just had to share this animation that was put together to show a transformation scene of the Hulk that was played out in the corner box from issue 292 to 300.

The transformation was pretty subtle with a new image coming out each month way back when but the change is much more dramatic when played out in rapid sequential progression. Kudos to whoever put this together – it was a great idea that came together perfectly.

    Wow I never would have noticed this! I wonder was this common place in comics or was it something done exclusively on the Hulk? Either way it’s impressive forward thinking for something fairly trivial.

      I am only aware of the Hulk doing this but that’s partially because I have never really looked for more instances of something like this. This was a really cool concept at the time as the norm for comics was to keep this image consistent over several months and more often years.

    I love this! It’s too bad they can’t seem to capture the classic hulk magic in the current books! I love the Banner Hulk of the 80’s especially when he took on ZZZaxxx with his banner scientist outfit on and his perfectly combed hair!

      Nostalgia is a strong factor for most of us and for that reason I will always be partial to Sal’s run as an artist on the title but I have to admit that there have been some GREAT Hulk artists over the last several year – McGuinness, Pagulayan, and Pelletier have been all time greats on the series IMHO.
