A Week of Abomination – Incredible Hulk Annual #20

Hulk Mask 001

You know what’s so great about the Abomination?  That he’s not totally evil – and that is what makes a great villain – they may do evil things – but they can explain it in a way that makes it… almost okay… ALMOST.  In this annual – which the Hulk doesn’t really appear in – except in flashbacks and make believe stories – we see the Abomination in a different light – we get to see the world through his eyes – how he feels that he’s the cursed hero…

How happy was I when I walked into Newbury Comics and saw this gem hanging on the wall? I squealed with delight! Alright, maybe I didn’t squeal… or did I? 🙂 But I have stated it in the past that my favorite Hulk collectibles by far are the comics – that still holds true – I love the Statues/Busts and the figures – but I have to tell you, when I find things like the Lou Ferigno inspired Hulk mask – unique items like that – I really get giddy!

Think about all the great things you could do with a Hulk ski mask!  You could… rob a bank… or a convenience store!  And the clerk behind the counter would say that the Hulk robbed him!  The officer would ask for a description of the “perp” (that’s cop talk for… robber) and the clerk would say “Well, he was green, angry – a little smaller than I’d heard – but looked just like I’ve seen in the comics”  Just remember not to be cliche and lead with “Hulk Smash!  Want Money!”

Worst Robber Ever...
