Incredible Hulk

One of the most recognizable of Marvel Comics characters, The Incredible Hulk had a convoluted history with the publication of his stories.

Starting off with a bang in his own title in 1962, this classic take on The Jeckyl/Hyde storyline only lasted 6 issues until Marvel relegated him to co-feature status in their "Tales To Astonish" title. Although the Green Skinned One remained very popular, it was not until 1968 that it was decided The Hulk should have his own book again.

Beginning with the issue numbered #102, this time out The Incredible Hulk would run for over 30 years, with the last issue of this series coming out in 1999.

Initially, the creative team of Gary Friedrich and Marie Severin were given the writing and art duties respectively, Stan Lee himself shortly returned to write the book himself, coinciding with the arrival of new artist Herb Trimpe.

Trimpe would have one of the longest stints as artist, remaining until 1975, Lee would eventually hand over the chronicling of troubled Dr. Bruce Banner and his emerald alias to Roy Thomas, Gerry Conway, Len Wein, Roger Stern, Bill Mantlo, etc.

Sal Buscema would spend an even longer time pencilling the title after Trimpe's departure, ending his duties in 1985!

Much happened over the years within the key issues: among the most collectible of the 1968 series are issues #141, which introduced the world to Doc Sampson; #180, in which we get our first glimpse of Wolverine (in the last panel!); #181 -  the most collectible 70's issue, and has become one of the most valuable comics of the Bronze-Age - which features the formal introduction of Wolverine; #182, the second appearance of Wolverine; #271, a valuable Rocket Raccoon crossover; #340 with Todd McFarlaine's epic Hulk/Wolverine battle.

If you have any of these, or any of the early 60's 6 issue run, you could potentially have a little goldmine!

Issue #1

What's Incredible Hulk #1 worth in 2021?

There is only one copy of the Incredible Hulk #1 graded NM 9.4 and it has never sold. If that issue ever surfaces for sale we might see the bidding go to $750,000 due to it's rarity! The next highest graded copy brought $336,000 in November of 2018. Even mid grade and lower grade copies command a very strong premium. FN 6.0 copies will easily run you $24,000 today compared to just $8,000 in 2009, A monstrous 300% increase. In 2009 GD 2.0 copies sold regularly for a mere $1,200. Currently you can expect to pay in the neighborhood of $9,000, over 7 times the number. The Hulk should be a safe bet in any grade given his popularity and status among Marvel's fans.

Why is this comic book valuable?

The Incredible Hulk #1 is one of Marvel's signature heroes. The Incredible Hulk was introduced fairly soon after the Fantastic Four and would be part of Marvel's hero renaissance. The issue introduced the gray skinned Hulk, General "Thunderbolt" Ross, Betty Ross, and Rick Jones. All of whom would become central supporting cast members to the Hulk. This is also the only issue in which the Hulk's skin was gray. Stan Lee would declare they change it to green the very next issue simply because Marvel "didn't have any green skinned heroes". While there are a lot of Incredible Hulk #1s for sale out there only seven isues are over VF/NM 9.0 making it really difficult to find in high grade!

The highest recorded copy is a 9.6 NM+ that brought $47,000 in 2016. If ever found, A NM/MT 9.8 would easily bring $100,000 plus in today's market. The popularity of the Avengers movies as well as Marvel's Immortal Hulk storyline saw a biit of a renaissance for Hulk. Fans are now clamoring for a movie of his own and that has raised awareness of the great opportunities for mid grade and low grade books. A FN 6.0 is going for around $3,000 today up 3x from 2009. Similarly a GD 2.0 recently brought $700 and just over $200 in 2009. Many other key Marvel books have returned 4, 5, even 6x their value in a similar time span. The Hulk books appear poised to enjoy that same level of success!

Why is this comic book valuable?

Incredible Hulk #2 saw an immediate and drastic change from the first issue. Printing difficulties had caused some major issues with keeping the Hulk's grey skin tone consistant in Hulk #1. Couple this with the fact Marvel did not yet have a green skinned character and Stan Lee would make the call to change and Ol' Mean Green was born! CGC Census shows just 883 unrestored copies recorded. Out of these less than 30 are high grade (between VF/NM 9.0 $ NM/MT 9.8).

Issue #181

What's Incredible Hulk #181 worth in 2021?

Incredible Hulk #181 is the defining issue of the Bronze Age of comic books. While there were many other characters created and that debuted in this span of time, Wolverine is by far the most popular in comics and film. All of this popularity translates into soaring values. A NM/MT 9.8 copy sold for $39,000 in 2018. You will pay a premium for any grade as illustrated by the recent sale of a FN 6.0 for $2,600. In 2009 you could've picked this book up for $600. Don't expect any deals on low grade books either as we've seen GD 2.0 copys bringing over $1,000 compared to $275 back in '09. The good news is if you are looking for a sure bet as far as increasing value and minimal market fluctuation Incredible Hulk #181 is it. There is simply no bigger first appearance in this era.

Why is this comic book valuable?

November of 1974 Incredible Hulk #181 would debut Marvel's future fan-favorite Wolverine in his first full appearance in comics. The battle between the Hulk and Wolverine would be the first of many epic and legendary such battles and stories. Less than a year later (summer of '75 in Giant-Size X-men #1) Wolverine quickly found himself thrust into the starting lineup of a brand new X-men team that included Storm, Nightcrawler, Cyclops, and Colossus. The rest, as they say, is history!
