Hulk Books (1966)(1978) Hulk Bookmark (1986)

Hulk Books 

These books are really old.  The first is from 1966 and has black and white copies of the first few comics.  It was thought that comics might have a better image in book form – small enough to carry around in your pocket.  But does the top text help?  Saying “…the new, groovy SUPER HEROES WITH SUPER PROBLEMS!”  Did you say super problems?!  I’m hooked already!  I can’t wait to read!

The next book, from ’78, has comics in color.  But my favorite piece here, by far, is the bookmark from ’86 that says “Return Your Books Or Else!”  Just like the 80’s to use the threat of violence to get you to do things.  Man what a great time.
