Pulls from the Short Box 1.24.17

What is the point of comics if you don’t read them?  Don’t be one of those CGC slabbing comic book “collectors”!  Make sure to read them over and over again!  Here is a list of what I’ve been reading from my collection: The Green Goblin (1996) W: DeFalco / A: Kobasic, Ramos Issue I’m Reading – #5 Total Issues inContinue reading “Pulls from the Short Box 1.24.17”

Chris Stevens Old Man Logan Variant

So, I mentioned about the current Old Man Logan storyline in the last update about what I’m reading comic-wise.  Well, one of the reasons I even bothered picking up the latest issue was because I caught a peek at the Chris Stevens variant (above).  This was not an easy issue to find either – threeContinue reading “Chris Stevens Old Man Logan Variant”

Something Special for a Monday

A lot the best reasons for keeping this blog going is the friends that I have been able to “meet” over the years.  Hulk fanatics like myself who not only like to collect but converse with like-minded fellows who share an affinity for the green goliath.  All stemming from the people who come here toContinue reading “Something Special for a Monday”

World War Wendigo (2014) – The Review

I never read the X-Men.  I’m just not interested in them – not sure there is a way I can explain my dislike for the group – I have tried to get into reading the exploits of the mutants before but to no avail.  I did see that The Amazing X-Men was set to doContinue reading “World War Wendigo (2014) – The Review”

Hulk Room Saturday!

I was lucky enough to get one – ONE – detolf before IKEA took them out of their inventory – and then put them back on at a slightly higher price.  I was given this as a present for my birthday from my sister.  Still one of the best gifts ever!  I figured I wouldContinue reading “Hulk Room Saturday!”

Bowen Designs Wendigo Statue (2011)

I have to tell you – I was dead set against picking this up – not because I don’t like the character or was disappointed in the way it came out but more because of the sheer size of this mother!  True to the character, this massive statue is bigger than any of the HulkContinue reading “Bowen Designs Wendigo Statue (2011)”

The Mighty World of Marvel #197 (1972)

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). Continue reading “The Mighty World of Marvel #197 (1972)”

Trimpe Signed Poster

Herb Trimpe is far and away my favorite Hulk artist.  I bought this in Reading a while back – at the same time I bought a few rare Hulk goodies including the Maquette re-paint and the Macaluso kit.  He had a few framed posters including this classic image. But I went with this one –Continue reading “Trimpe Signed Poster”

Wendigo Marvel Legends (2008)

This is the figure rumored to being the best and most sought after.  It is really amazing!  It’s huge and detailed and massive!  There are a few set-backs to this toy though – first off, Wendigo is all white so the paint application is pretty standard – I do wish there was a better way toContinue reading “Wendigo Marvel Legends (2008)”
