Dark Hulk Poster (2002)

Drak Hulk

This is by far the coolest poster I have.  The Hulk is drawn by Deodato Jr. who, as you can see, had improved through-out his run into making the Hulk scary, large and intimidating.  This was a poster sent to comic shops to display on there walls, but a great man named Bill, (not the friend Bill) who worked at a comic shop I frequented, always gave me free Hulk things.  Whenever he had something he would non-chalantley say “Oh, yeah, and they sent me this thing to put up, but if you want it you can have it.”  I would squeal with delight and then kick my feet in the air.  He would throw his head back and laugh and then a pretty, pretty rainbow would appear in the sky.  True story.

Universal Studios Hulk Shirts (1999/2001)

Transforming Hulk Shirt

I think the Hulk ride is possibly the best rollercoaster there is.  From the very start where they shoot you up the hill that you think you are just going to climb slowly – even to the line that you wait in – a mock labratory where the Hulk was created – just a great rollercoaster from beginning to end.  These are a couple of the shirts I picked up while I was there.

Bowen Leader (2007)

Leader Bust #2

Bowen is clearly the leader in this industry for a reason.  This version of the Leader is so detailed and finely painted, from the expression on his face to the little gadget controller he holds in his hands, this is far and away the most detail anyone should ever give to a Hulk nemisis.  This is #780 out of 2000.

The Rampaging Hulk (1977)

Hulk Mag

These oversized magazines have some of the coolest covers.  The collection here is no where near complete.  I have issues 1, 4, 6, 8, 12, 17-23, 25 & 26.  I may get them all but I found all of these in a small comic shop in Marshfield called Chris’ Comics.  These are the covers to # 12, 19, 26 & 8.

Incredible Hulk #368 (1992)

368

This is the Sam Kieth comic I’ve talked so much about.  The Hulk was still grey and fought Mr. Hyde.  It’s a pretty trippy issue with the best drawings ever.  I just wish he drew an Abomination issue.  His Hulk is pretty sick looking – could you imagine his Abomination? 

Mecha Hulk (2004)

Mecha Hulk 

This mutha of a figure comes with a little Gremlin figure as well.  This figure is so big and heavy if you were to throw it at someone I bet it would make them cry.  Even an older man.  Like a 50 year old.  He wouldn’t have time to get mad – he would be too busy crying and trying to stop the bleeding.  Yeah, it would make him bleed too.

All these figures from 2004 are pretty rare.  They are some of the best Hulk figures out there and I still haven’t even posted the coolest ones yet.  If you have the chance pick these up today. 

Hulk Postcards 4 (2005)

Postcards 4

These postcards don’t feature the Hulk comics – they instead feature other comics that the Hulk has appeared in.  As you can see – Fantastic Four (Hulk could and has beaten the Thing way too many times for people to think that they would have a good fight anymore.)  And the Hulk has also appeared in Spiderman a ton of times too.  The Avengers was a mistake from the beginning.  Hulk does not belong in a group.  The group dynamic does not work with him.  It’s like me and organized sports – they just should not mix.
