Hulk Appearances: Volume 10 – Kid N Play #9

CCI08262016_0007

Who would have guessed that Kid N Play would have made it to issue #9?  I mean, let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to keep up with the exploits of the ultimate 90’s rap duo Kid N Play?  Those House Party movies took years in between so we needed a monthly update!

Unfortunately, the Hulk didn’t really have a run in with the authors of such classics as Ain’t Gonna Hurt Nobody, Gittin Funky and Can You Dig That?, they had some funky pizza that made them hallucinate.  Now, any comic collector worth his salt in long boxes would know that truly rare comics, the hardest issues to get, are actually the last few issues of a run. Especially a pretty unpopular run – like this was – so if you are lucky enough to find this issue consider yourself lucky.  They aren’t easy to find and there aren’t many out there at all!

Thunder Clap No
Mind Control No
Funny Nickname Yes?
Hero vs. Hero Sort of?
“Hulk Smash!” No

Since I’m such a nice guy – and I don’t get to blog as much as I’d like to but I still have loyal readers – I will tell you this: I have an extra copy of this super rare comic.  I know it’s not really worth that much – but that’s besides the point.  Here’s what I am going to do – I will give a chance to own my extra copy to anyone who comments on this post asking to be in the raffle.  I will draw the name and then let the winner know here.  I will draw the name on Halloween Day – so if you’d like it just let me know!  Good luck all!

Boom – A Comic I Never Thought I’d Find… and I Found Two

image

A while a ago CBSI (Comic Book Speculation and Investing) laid out a list of some of the rarest comic books you probably haven’t heard of (Click on the image for the link).  Now, this is a great little list and all – even though it’s without statistics, numbers and it’s lacking of any facts – but I see where they were going with it.  Truth is – and any seasoned comic collector can attest to – that it’s not the #1 that is the rarest of a series, it’s the last issue.  The issue right before the series is cancelled.  The items on the list may be slightly tongue in cheek and it seems to pick the oddest titles but it also makes a lot of sense.  Theses series obviously didn’t have large print runs to begin with and they were cancelled with even lower runs.

I couldn’t find much information about actual existing copies but, as a man trying to gather every Hulk appearance, finding these two gems are a huge win!  I’ve never seen copies of this issue in person until today and I was actually lucky enough to find TWO.  I know it sounds odd – but this made me happier than it probably should have!

I will be showcasing this guest-shot in the monthly feature I’ve been doing of Hulk appearances but it’s set to post in the fall.  Anyone else out there have this issue?  I’ve read it (sadly) and it was hilarious and terrible at the same time.
