Interview with Jeff Parker

Gary Miller has done a bang up job interviewing Parker – which you can read right here on a great site called Daily POP.  I am somewhat excited to read what Parker’s take on the Red Hulk is – and hopefully he can get fans to stop calling him Rulk – because that sounds so freakin’ stupid!

Remember – Hulk #25 comes out THIS Wednesday!

New Page!

Look above – you will see a page titled ARTISTS – that is a page that I will be adding to when needed – and I will also be linking any pages that I have from the artists I have art from.  If I don’t have an actual page then I will link it to my favorite commission – and I will be working on putting up the inkers too!

Marvel Universe Card Set (1990)

1990 Green Hulk Card

1990 Grey Hulk Card

There are a few great things about this set – and I will say this – one of the best things is that they have both a Green Hulk AND a Grey Hulk card.  1990 was certainly a big year for the Hulk – that saw the return of the Green Hulk after years of Grey Hulk stories, even if it was for one issue – and the end of the year was the beginning of the merged Hulk era! 

1990 Leader Card - or is it Larry Flynt?

One of the worst cards in the series… the Leader!  Look how freakin’ BIG they made his head!  While I see that in these early series they tried to get the whole character’s body in the limited space – the Leader’s greatest quality is that awesome porno ‘stache of his!  Instead they gave him a noggin’ 3 times the size of his actual head and… is it lighting up?  What’s up with that?  Why are there ray of light shooting out of it?

Hulk vs Thing

Fixit vs Spidey

Wolverine vs Grey Hulk

There are also a few “Battle” cards – Hulk vs Thing, Fixit vs Spiderman, Hulk vs Wolverine.  Again – I will say it again, I don’t get what was so great about the Wolverine vs Hulk fight – I mean, I know that’s where the world was introduced to Wolvie – but really – most people don’t even know what happened in the fight.  Mainly because the truth is – Wolvie was beaten and inconsequential.  And the Fixit/Spiderman fight?  Another boring fight!  We’re not talking the Cosmic Spiderman/ Grey Hulk fight – because that one was awesome! 

Avengers #1 M.V.C.

Hulk #181 - M.V.C.

Alright, let’s move on.  There was another small series of cards dubbed the MVCs: Most Valuable Comics.  Some of them actually were the valuable comics – while some were recently released and hyped as “going to be valuable”.  Lastly, the last half dozen cards were “joke” cards featuring Spiderman interviewing other heroes.

Oh Spiderman - you're such a ham!

The chase cards were 5 holograms – off the top of my head here – Magneto, Cosmic Spiderman, Punisher, Wolverine and Spiderman vs Green Goblin.  Nothing Hulk here – so I didn’t post pics – but I do have a complete set – including the Wolverine hologram which was missing when I got the set.

And – before anyone asks – yes, I will review Hulk #613 this week.  First I have to read it!  Expect it on Wednesday!
