Hulk Stamp Postcards (2007)

Hulk Stamp Postcard

I love the images chosen for the 2007 Super Hero stamps… and it was pretty amazing luck when I happened into the post office 2 years ago to see the stamps – I didn’t even know they were releasing them! I just happen to be in the post office that day – and there they were!  Well, this is almost the same thing – I walked into Outer Limits – and that guy has some really cool items – but man, his prices are hard to swallow at times – but I did see these postcards in the spinner and picked them up.  Pretty short and story I know – but what do you want – I just finished with work and I’m tired!

It Was The Thing’s Idea!

The storyline begins in issue #533 - #535  Worth the pick-up!

The storyline begins in issue #533 - #535 Worth the pick-up!

Imagine my surprise this week, when reading The Life Fantastic TPB, when I came across a juicy little nugget of Hulk geekdom!  So, If you don’t know what the story is about here it is in a nutshell.  The Hulk (who is green when the story begins) is used to find out what kind of shenanigans Hydra is up to – but when he goes deep into a cave he finds a Gamma Bomb.  And then it explodes – leaving the Hulk a savage, grey incarnation who is reliving the Hulks life – each painful moment to the next the Hulk smashes his way through each hallucination.  The Thing and Johnny are sent to take the Hulk down.  The Thing realizes that the Hulk isn’t himself and that some thing’s wrong.

Ultimately, the Hulk is about to land the killing blow to the Thing, Johnny goes nova.  This doesn’t take the Hulk down – but it snaps him out of it.  As the story ends Grimm says that he talked to Reed – and look what he says:

The whole idea came from the Thing!  Wow!  This was released at the same time as Prelude to Planet Hulk – how great is that?

Fixit Head Sketch (2009)

It’s my boy Wamester again!  I purchased his sketch book and in the back he does a quick personalized head sketch for you – and I chose Fixit.  Seeing what he can do with just the head I am totally into seeing what he can do with an entire full body sketch!  If he’s at the Boston Comic Con I will certainly be asking for one!  Has anyone asked this guy for something yet?  Has anyone contacted him about a sketch?  And if not – why?  You need to contact this guy before he becomes so wildly famous that his prices are outrageous!  :)

Ultimate Hulk / Iron Man Mini Mates (2009)

Ultimate Human 2-pack

Ultimate Human was a recent mini-series that was probably one of the most enjoyable Hulk stories for a while.  The Ultimate Hulk is a controversial character at best – some love him, others think it’s a little too much – having him eat human flesh and all – but I think you’d be hard pressed to find someone that didn’t totally like this storyline.  These mini mates are pretty great – and the face on the Hulk!  Did someone just kick him in the nuts?  Did he just smell something disgusting?  Why does he look like that?  Is that supposed to be rage?  Yikes!

Anyways, I didn’t know this was coming out – and I was surprised when I found it – so just to let you know – it’s out now, make sure you check around and get it!

This is late – and the next couple posts I was planning may not happen – because my sweet little girl is being a pain in the ass tonight… did that come off as crass?  Sorry – just a little frustrated.  But here is the first thing I was planning on posting – it is a Grey Hulk Bobble Head by Funko – I found it a couple of weeks ago in a Newbury Comics at the same time I picked up the shot glass.  It was a good day that day.

Also, I just picked up a whole slew of Hulk action figures off ebay – they should be here soon – just wait till you see the pieces I was able find in this lot!  I’m off to New York tomorrow – so this may be it until Tuesday (Did you really think I was going to be posting on Labor day?  Heck no!  I’ll be having me some BBQ chicken!)  Enjoy and have a great long weekend!  See you next week!

Marvel Comics Presents #95 (1992) – The Review

Heroes... nothing like the one with the Cheer Leader...

Heroes... nothing like the one with the Cheer Leader...

One of my least favorite stories here – one called “Heroes” – see, little Johnny meets the Hulk but the Hulk, not having time to waste, tells the kid to buzz off.  Little Johnny idolizes the Hulk and starts to pump up and treat all of his friends the way the Hulk treated him.  Little Johnny’s friends don’t take too kindly to that and they gang up and beat the crap out of him.  Johnny learns real quick that he’s no Hulk.  Later, a stupid looking villain who would have liked to call himself “Nomad” but couldn’t since that name was already taken, is in a fight with the Hulk.  Not only that but this bozo seems to be winning.

Little Johnny happens upon this fight and as the villain is just about to land a blow on the Hulk Johnny hits him with his book bag.  When the villain turns his attention to Johnny the Hulk takes the upper hand in the fight and beats the ridiculous villain.  The Hulk tells little Johnny that he didn’t need the help and jumps off.

One of the worst drawn stories I have ever seen – from panel to panel the Hulk looks different sizes – in one panel it even looks like the Hulk isn’t that much bigger than little Johnny.  Terrible art – and just as bad a story.  Grade: F

I just realized I never took a picture of the cover from the comic this took place in – I will do so and update this post accordingly – sorry Gammabros!

Here’s one of the more… unusual stories.  The Hulk is hanging out in a bar – Selene, the Black Queen, walk in and tries to cozy on up to the Hulk.  Hulk tells her that he’s “Not Interested” (Which is also the title of this sordid little tale).  Selene tries to get the Hulk’s attention, first by flashing her “goods” and telling him that she’s a God – then she sucks face with a guy and sucks the life right out of him and even hits the Hulk with a psychic blast.  Each time the Hulk responds with a “Not interested”.  Finally, though, after she has sufficiently aggravated him and now tries to get him to leave the Hulk tells her there is a reason he’s not interested…

Back at the Hellfire Club, Magneto calls to Selene who informs him that she has learned a lesson in arrogance tonight.  Magneto calls out her name and she responds with “Not interested.”

Hulk being... not so subtle!

One of the more interesting stories – but hey – still showed off a little of the Hulks ability to scare off powerful mutants – Grade: B-
