Incredible Hulk #180 (1974)

hulk1809.0

This is such a beautiful book – how could I not show it?  It also marks the true first appearence of Wolverine.  The very last panel has Wolvie jumping out to battle Wendigo and Hulk.  I now have the Wolverine Trilogy – which marks the other expensive books off my list to get…  Now the 8 issues left are random issues – but also #162 – which is Wendigo’s first appearence.  I will search for that one and post it as soon as I get it!

I also wanted to show you the entire trilogy as I have them.  It’s pretty amazing to see each of the comics as they came out, to look at each of the artists that graced the Hulk as the years went on.  If anyone ever wants to see a comic cover just let me know – I will post it right away!  I also have alot of the comics where Hulk made guest shots.  I’m hoping that when I finish this run I will maybe move onto getting the early FF issues that the Hulk appeared in – and of course Thor, Iron Man, and any other issues I see. 

Here is the entire trilogy…

The Comic Quest is…

…almost over.  A week ago I had to go to New Hampshire for work.  I found a few comic shops – 3 to be exact – where I found two comics I needed.  I did find a great statue that I have been missing (I will you in suspense to whether I got it or not…)  Here is the front of a comic shop I found called Double Midnight Comics in Manchester, NH…

It was a nice shop that had a nice selection of comics – just hardly any that I needed.  I also went to a shop in Nashua called simply “The Comic Shop” – but again, only one comic.  I also received a few of the comics I won off ebay – but I hate getting them off ebay because you never know the shape you will get the comics in…

As you can see – 110 isn’t too bad but 103 is a bit of a mess.  The only saving grace was the Boston Comic-Con this past Sunday where I found quite a few of the comics that I needed here are some pics…

That’s me rifling through some back issues like a madman.  I did find quite a few, like I said, here they are…

#’s 151 and 143 – I really like the cover with Doom!

123 139 hulk

Two of my favorite comics that I found… 123 & 139 – really great Leader cover – and the other with a great Rouge’s Gallery cover – not only great comics but amazing condition!

I also found the King Size Annual #10 (when I bought it the guy called me a f!#%&’n bastard) and  a Tales To Astonish #98.  But I also finished off the 200’s with #255 which was really hard to find for some reason!  Maybe because it’s the Hulk vs. THOR!

Lastly, I know this is a long post – but I have been so busy lately I really need to catch up with some info – but if you’ve been reading some of the comments that people have left on the posts then you will know that I met a man who calls himself Mego Stretch Hulk.  Here is a picture of me meeting him – check out his web-site here.  Pretty cool stuff.
