Next Set of Marvel Masterworks…

We will continue with the Marvel Masterworks with the next volume of MM – this time they feature the TTA years.  Because the Hulk split the book they can fit 20 issues instead of the regular 10 – although it still figures to be the same.  The real kicker is I cannot find the nextContinue reading “Next Set of Marvel Masterworks…”

Tales to Astonish #59 (1964)

On my trip to New York I entered Midtown Comics and was loving the selection that they had.  Although a bit pricey I was psyched to walk in and find this comic right here… TTA #59!  The beginning of the 2nd Hulk saga!  I have been searching for one – trying not to buy oneContinue reading “Tales to Astonish #59 (1964)”

Tales to Astonish #62 (1964)

New England Comics – 1/10/08

New England Comics in Quincy was not so Hulk-tastic.  The only back issue they had for me was # 109 (Trimpe).  But some good news… they did have a few Tales to Astonish that I needed.  As many of you know, Hulk’s legacy continued in TTA from issue #59 – #101 until it was re-namedContinue reading “New England Comics – 1/10/08”

Tales To Astonish (1963-1965)

These are the few Tales to Astonish I have.  I have #91 against the Abomination (#90 is when the Abomination first appeared)  #69 with the Leader.  Tales to Astonish was a shared Hulk book.  See, when Hulk was cancelled after issue 6 in ’62 Marvel gave him this book that he shared with Giant-Man andContinue reading “Tales To Astonish (1963-1965)”
