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
"Within the Swamp, There Stirs... a Glob!"

As the Hulk leaves Costa Salvador, he leaps across Florida, but tragically comes into the path of a test tactical missile, and the resultant explosion blows him into the swamps.

This news finds its way to General Ross, who comes in pursuit, with Betty and Glenn Talbot in tow. The Hulk, meanwhile, finds that his legs were injured in the blast, and, for the time being, he must walk his way out of the swamp.

He comes across a shed, and hoping to find assistance finding his way out of the swamp, instead finds only a government stockpile of nuclear waste. In anger, he scatters the containers, which seep into the swamp.

The waste mixes with the elements of the swamp, and washes over the corpse of an escaped convict, who rises from the depths as the monster known as the Glob.

Meanwhile, the Army has located the Hulk, and readies itself for an attempt to capture him. While preparing, however, the Glob strikes, kidnapping Betty. He crosses paths with the Hulk, whose instinct is to protect Betty.

The Hulk senses a kinship with the Glob, and also senses that the Glob's short life is coming to an end. The Hulk rescues Betty as the Glob dissolves into nothingness. This is witnessed by General Ross and Talbot, and the Hulk surrenders Betty to their care before disappearing into the swamp (20 pages).

Letter column includes a fan letter from Dave Kraft.
