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.
