Largest known Hulk collection that is currently up for sale (lot of 374 issues)
You are looking at the largest known Hulk collection that is currently up for sale. It is the complete second volume of Hulk, almost 400 consecutive issues.

A little background on the Hulk monthly series. The first Hulk volume was canceled after only six issues. After a while the Hulk then went on to appear in a book called Tales to Astonish.

After Tales to Astonish #101 Marvel decided to rename the book Incredible Hulk beginning with #102. This is when the book officially became known as the second volume of the Incredible Hulk.

The second volume contiued on until #474 when it was cancelled in 1999 due to fan reaction of long time writer Peter David leaving the book.

This lot contains ever issue of the second volume including Wolverine's first appearance in Hulk #181. It is in Very Fine condition and that issue alone is valued at almost $1,000

This is a personal collection so the books were taken very good care of. The conditions on the books range mainly from fine to very fine.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Item Bio
"...And Now, the Absorbing Man!"

The Hulk has a dim memory of Banner's recent ability to keep Hulk's persona in check, and vows that Banner will never hold him prisoner again. His thoughts about his recent happiness with Betty confuse him, and he passes out, only to revert to Bruce Banner.

Elsewhere, on the Army base, Major Talbot is being informed of a meteor being tracked by satellite on crash course with Earth, a potentially extinction-level event.

News gets out to the general public, and Banner comes to the base to offer his services. He volunteers to pilot a space craft, armed with nuclear payload, to intercept the meteor in space.

Banner succeeds in his mission, but in the close encounter with the meteor, picks up an unintended hitch-hiker, the Absorbing Man, who had been stranded in space since his battle with Thor (see Thor #123).

Banner sees the evil intent in Crusher Creel's eyes, and his racing heart triggers his transformation to the Hulk. They begin their slugfest on a rocket at the edge of space, but soon crash to Earth to determine who is the mightiest, as an odd collection of youth gather nearby to await the outcome. (20 pages).

Reprinted in Marvel Super-Heroes (1967) #77.
