Title:  The Incredible Hulk. Vol. 1

Author:  Stan Lee ; artist, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko

Collection:  Teen Books

This edition of Marvel Masterworks collects the first 6 issues of The Incredible Hulk that were originally published in 1962 and 1963. The first issue is one of the most famous Marvel comics ever as it details how scientist Bruce Banner is accidentally exposed to gamma rays and becomes the Hulk. It’s interesting to see how not only the color of the Hulk evolves from grey to green, but also how much his speech has evolved over the years. In the early Hulk comics, he is much more articulate than the kind of infantile “Hulk smash” speech that he later became more known for. The Hulk has always been my favorite Marvel character. Growing up in the 80’s, I was pretty fascinated by the Incredible Hulk tv series that starred Bill Bixby. The Hulk is such a great character because he is not really a bad guy or a good guy. He’s just a rogue character that wants the world to leave him alone and to not destroy him. These Marvel Masterworks are great because they give fans the chance to read comics that would cost thousands of dollars to get a hold of an original copy. The inking is in nice vibrant colors and each one collects multiple issues all in one book. If you are a fan of classic Marvel comics, I would suggest checking out our Amazing Spider Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Captain America, Invincible Iron Man, Avengers, and Silver Surfer editions of these. Just do a quick search in our catalog for “Marvel Masterworks” and you should find them all.
