Hulk Annual (1981)

1981 Hulk Annual

1981 Hulk Annual

This isn’t as vintage as I like my vintage stuff – in fact my idea of vintage is things made before 1980 – but what the hell, I live dangerously!  So this Hulk annual is not the normal kind of annual you would see published by Marvel in the U.S.A.  This was published in the U.K. in 1981 and it has a hardcover like most children’s pictures do.  I love the uniqeness of this book.  The cover is the Hulk vs. what looks like Mogol – but I am not sure.  I do know the inside cover has a freaky Ferigno inspired Hulk illustration.

There is Bruce and... AAAAAUUUGGGHHH!
There is Bruce and… AAAAAUUUGGGHHH!

 This story starts off where Bruce is actually HIT by that truck.  Crazy beginning – but you can see the price tag in the corner there. 2.25 pounds.  I would have made that symbol but I have no idea how to.  That reminds me of a great story my friend Bill told me.  He works in a movie theater – some woman came in with tickets she bought off the internet – but she had a problem with the machine, she couldn’t get her tickets and she went to the customer service to complain.  Well it turns out that she had bought tickets for a movie theater in a town of the same name – except this town was in Europe.  Apparently she didn’t see the pound sign next to the price.  My friend Bill had to point it out.  Try explaining that to your credit card company.

  1. The guy Hulk is fighting on the cover is either Mongu-1 from Inc.Hulk#6 1962 or Mongu-2 from Inc.Hulk#211 1977.(notice the axe in his hand) The book you got has the reprint story of Inc.Hulk#127 1970 with Mogol a robot. Incidently Mongu-1 is a robot too but, not Mongu-2. Confused, well so was I trying to figure this out,lol.

  2. correction, Incredible Hulk#4 for the first Mongu, see I’m still confused.

  3. Hulk-Man(always on)

    You mean that fat “Space warrior” Mongu?!

  4. Hulk-man- the Inc.Hulk#4 says gladiator from space. If your talking Mongu-2 it’s Maha Yogi’s tough guy from Inc.Hulk#211.

  5. Look at the big brain on 465! I admit I haven’t even read this yet – and while writing about it I knew the character on the cover was the very one from #4 – but when I wrote it I doubted myself and saw the name Mogol and went with that. Should have trusted my instinct – but I’m glad you were here to set it straight 465 – thanks gammabro!

  6. It is a fine resource, thanks the author for creation. Has found a lot of interesting, now I will come often. Good luck

  7. The ferrigno inspired thing, you have the right to say “…….AUGGGHHHHHHHHHH” So I’ll say what I need to, “O My Lord! Ferrigno inspired picture, YOU’RE DISGUSTING!!!!”

  8. Here’s my new rule:

    Your comments have to make sense – otherwise don’t make them.
