Hulk Bookmark 2 (1986)

3 bookmarks

I won this lot off ebay just the other day.  I love bookmarks… especially from yesteryear.  As much as I like the Hulk bookmark I really like the Spiderman one with the double meaning where it says “I’ll save you page!”  I think that is brilliant.  Now all I need is something good to read… Hey!  Look at that!  I found something!

Hulk Trades 2 (1986/1998/2003)

books 3 

The Wolverine Battles The Incredible Hulk book tells the entire sad story of the first time Wolverine messed with the Hulk.  Sad, not because of Wolverine’s interference, but because the story is actually about Wendigo and his sister’s plan to cure Wendigo of his curse.  The plan gets out of control and the end is a very romantisized but sad and sweet ending. 

The movie adaptation is written by Peter David – the man himself. 

“Chillers” is a story magazine, not a comic book, it has a few pictures – but mostly it’s written word.

Hulk Books 

These books are really old.  The first is from 1966 and has black and white copies of the first few comics.  It was thought that comics might have a better image in book form – small enough to carry around in your pocket.  But does the top text help?  Saying “…the new, groovy SUPER HEROES WITH SUPER PROBLEMS!”  Did you say super problems?!  I’m hooked already!  I can’t wait to read!

The next book, from ’78, has comics in color.  But my favorite piece here, by far, is the bookmark from ’86 that says “Return Your Books Or Else!”  Just like the 80’s to use the threat of violence to get you to do things.  Man what a great time.
