Since the beginning of this blog there have always been those Hulk themed mysteries that have persevered. How many copies of 181 exist? How many Mego Stretch Hulks are there out there?
One such mystery has to do with the comic above. Hulk vs Venom has always been one of the harder to find issues with the real mysteries being how exactly did the original owners get their hands on the issue? People knew the only way to get a copy was to mail away for it – but where exactly was the mail-away form?
Well, on a recent trip to a thrift store and searching through the boxes of comics they had in the back I saw this beat up comic of Conan the Adventurer #1. This 1994 Marvel comic really has no significance – nor is it worth the read – but I did pick it up because I finally came across a mail away form for Hulk vs Venom!:
There it is! A mail away form inside certain comics (I’m sure this isn’t the only one) with a cut-out coupon that offered copies for $5.00 each. Since the going rate of comics were about $2 this was an extravagant amount! Of course, as shown, this was not just for the comic itself though as you were donating to NCPCA to battle against child abuse.
How many eyeballs can one eat?
Found ay my local grocery store I was pretty snazzed about this little guy! I always enjoy getting a new Hulk action figure but I must say this one is quite dull once out of the retail bag. First off, as you can see in the photo above, there is very little in sculpted details. Very little muscle definition but, oddly, the pants belt and zipper area clearly defined!
Very little attention is paid to torso area and articulation is at a bare minimum as well. Only leg, arm and neck joints allow you to pose this figure giving you the full range of either sitting or standing pose – as well as arms over head or by his side. Think of the possibilities!
I don’t even know why they couldn’t keep the same color plastic when they put this figure together? The torso is so off and much lighter then the legs, head and arms. Everything about this figure screams cheap.
I wish this would have happed more often. Superman has more powers at his disposal but strength vs strength Hulk has supes EVERY time.
Check out the latest Gamerverse Avengers issue where the Hulk has a pretty prominent role:
You can also find a quick glimpse of older, slave Hulk in the Guardians of the Galaxy #12.
This is also how I feel when I see pics of my high school days. I was once young and full of energy and now I’m just greying with an odd expression on my face…
He was pretty unstoppable before – but with Juggy’s powers? The universe wouldn’t stand a chance!
