A Week of Marvel Treasury Editions – Day #5

MTE #17

MTE #17 has one of my favorite covers.  I always thought it was hugely powerful!  The crazy thing is – this is the issue that I have in the worst condition.  But, it’s still really great to have!  This MTE reprints issues #121, #134, #150 and #158.  Issue #150 has one of the saddest endings ever.  The Hulk reverts back into Bruce Banner after Havock controls the Hulk – Betty comes to Bruce’s side to see if he’s alright.  But Bruce, in an almost unconscious state, calls Betty”Jarella, my love”.  Betty has no idea what it means – be everyone reading the issue has their heart broken for Betty…  Another collection of great comics!

MTE #16: The Defenders!

The Defenders are, IMO, one of the best and most entertaining Marvel groups.  I wonder if they could ever create a movie out of this super team?  The amazing thing about the Defenders is that they actually kept the Hulk in the group – and not always voluntarily.  This MTE covers some of the more important issues – it reprints the first appearance of the Defenders – Marvel Feature Presents #1 – but also The Defenders #4 (Valkyrie joins the Defenders) and Defenders #13 & 14.  You have to love the shot of the Defenders on the back cover – particularly the Surfer posing like he’s in a JC Penny catalog.

MTE #5: The Hulk!

This has one of the best back covers – featuring a Trimpe drawn Banner to Hulk transformation!  This great issue contains the Origin of the Hulk – reprinted with a Green Hulk – but also TTA #79 and #100 and The Incredible Hulk #139 and #141 (First Doc Samson) – and even Marvel Feature Presents #11, the Hulk vs Thing.  I don’t think I have found one of these issues that don’t have that great “Old” comic smell to them.  I have a few copies of this issue – and to tell you the truth – one of the copies was going to make its way into the Hulk package for the winner of May’s contest!  I like to call it “The Birthday Card Contest”.  I hope people actually submit cards – cause what a boring contest if no one even enters…

A Week of Marvel Treasury Editions – Day #2

MTE #26

Marvel Treasury Editions #26 features some of my favorite Hulk stories – the Harpy, one of the greatest Hulk villains – only because it was Betty Ross – and the Bi-Beast!  His early appearances were freakin’ fabulous!  Not to mention that you get to see the Trimpe artwork Huge and in your face!  Out of all the MTE – this is the one that EVERY Hulk fan should have!

A Week of Marvel Treasury Editions – Day #1

Marvel Treasury Edition #24: The Rampaging Hulk

I really wish these were still being released today!  A lot of them have reprints of classic Comics – but some of them had original stories!  This one here reprints issues #175-#178 (Death of Warlock).  One of the greatest things about issues like this is seeing the classic art on HUGE  pages – each panel is almost as big as the original comics!  I have found quite a few of these and will showcase them this week and the next – so get ready and enjoy!
