Speaking of Wolverine… overseas they released what they called the Mighty World of Marvel – and what that was were black and white reprints. I have not been able to track down #198 – the reprint of Wolvie’s first (really second) appearance. I did get this one though – #197, Wolverine’s cameo (first real appearance). The cover is absolutely bad ass! Wendigo is one of the best Hulk villains ever – and this is true Trimpe style!
While #198 is basically the same as the cover to #181 – #197 looks nothing like #180. That’s because #196 does! That’s right – the trilogy is actually spread out between 4 different issues in this series. #196-#199. I have every issue on its way… except #198. Damn Wolverine.
The art inside is all the same – just no color – and there are some pin ups, like the one below. This is a pretty great series to have – if you want to -but if you HAVE to choose to get the US series and this – absolutely get the US series!
