A Week of Huge, Evil Hands

And last but not least – one of the most famous Hulk covers with a huge hand!

Bubble Head Hulk (2010)

Little Hulk all put together!

Picked this little guy up on Wednesday. Basically it comes as just the head – and you open it up and there is a little body in there. With the head being hollow it makes the figure really light – and easy to stand. But it alos makes the figure feel pretty cheap… which it is so, then it fits I guess. I picked up a few others of these – and I have no idea why because they are pretty ugly. They are deformed, cheap, ugly and that’s the good points!  The worst of these little figures is the Thor figure – but I do have to say that the little bodies are kind of cool.

A Week of Huge Evil Hands

These hands are so big all you see are the fingers!  Holy crap!

Hope you picked these up too~!

The Incredible Hulk #606 2nd print

TIH #606 2nd print came out – which is sort of a big deal since it’s the first issue that went into 2nd print for a while – also the HC collecting TIH #601 – 606 + the List came out called: Son of Banner.

Red Hulk #2 (2010) – The Review

Red Hulk #2

We are now being filled in on a lot of the back story of the muddled mess Loeb handed us.  I for one am so happy that Parker and Pak are here to “fill in the blanks” – and Parker’s issues are really, really good.  Issue #2 deal with Thundra’s part in all of this.  First, Banner if informed of who his daughter is – and how she came to be – all told to him by the Red Hulk.

Next, we learn that the Red Hulk had always known that his then allies were going to turn on him – and he recruited Thundra to be on his team when the other shoe dropped.  He tells her that they will promise to send her back to her time – but they aren’t the most trustworthy – and if she sticks with the Red Hulk instead of turning on them – that he will help her in any way he can to find a time machine.

Ladies! It's raining men!

Red Hulk to the Rescue!

So, time comes – and Thundra sticks with the Red Hulk.  When the Wizard comes a knockin’ for her to join his Frightful Four and she says no – which angers the villains – the Red Hulk comes to her rescue.  Afterward, the two head to Doom’s castle to get his time machine – since he’s now been captured and isn’t using it – and Red Hulk and Thundra are attacked by Nosferatu – who drink the Red Hulk’s blood and get very strong – but Thundra comes to Red Hulk’s rescue this time.

They hide the time machine and talk about how Lyra, her daughter, has been recruited – mainly because she doesn’t know any better.  Thundra watches on as Red Hulk admires how proud she is of her daughter – and then he says something very telling – he says he can relate.  He can relate!  This, to me, pretty much shuts the door to Talbot seeing as he didn’t have a daughter – and Ross, of course, does!  The next issue is supposed to deal with the creation of A-Bomb – so it should be interesting.  The best shot is the end of this issue where we see that A-Bomb has been using his chameleon ability to spy on everything the Red Hulk has been doing – Grade: B

A Week of Huge Evil Hands!

I almost forgot to post a cover!  Here is The Order #2 – and the cover reminds me of the N*Sync album.  I’m ashamed to admit that…

Hulk Vehicle and Hummer (2003)

Hulk Vehicle

I’m telling you – EVERYTIME I hit Bedrock Comics I find new Hulk items I missed when they first came out.  The top is a interesting looking 4 “legged” vehicle that doesn’t look very comfortable to ride.  It’s part of the Ultimate Marvel Line and comes with a mini- comic – looks like the cover to Ultimate Marvel Team Up #2… which reminds me – I have to update the Comics 4 page… a ton more entries.  Ugh.  This is now a full on mission – it’s moved from a quest to a mission!  I was in a shop for a few minutes today and walked out with a dozen back issues all guest staring the Hulk.  Anyways, look!  A Hulk Hummer!
