It’s starting already…


Since I was working in Walpole today I stopped by New England Comics in Norwood again today to pick up a few more back issues.  To my utter disappointment, I picked up exactly 4 because that’s all they had that I needed.  The comic shops around me are starting to run out of back issues I need.  That means I will either have to travel a lot further or start relying solely on ebay.  God, I don’t want to do that.  I did manage to pick up…

#236 (Buscema) – Milgrom Cover
#271 (Buscema) – Milgrom Cover
#295 (Buscema) – Sienkiewicz Cover

That leaves roughly about 132 comics that I need to finish off this Hulk run.  Not bad – I’m not getting frustrated yet… I’m not lying to myself… I’m not talking to myself, hugging myself and rocking in the corner right now… really…

Dynamic Forces Gray Hulk Bust (2003)


This leaning Hulk bust came out in 2003.  His pecs seem to be shrinking.  The sculpt is a unique look at the Hulk – can’t say it’s the best – but it isn’t terrible.  Why is his shirt poking up like that though? 


The bust is limited to just 1,963 (again, he came out in 1962 – so why 1963?) and this is #1,954.  They even spell grey the “other” way.  There is a very limited green version – but I almost never got this version so I highly doubt I will ever pick that up.  It actually looks a lot better in person.  The facial expression can’t be beat.
