*Marvel: What’s Old is our feature where we highlight stuff from our catalogue that you may have missed. Most collectors will be aware that the first six issue run of the Incredible Hulk is tough to come by; harder still is it to get them in decent shape, so we’re particularly pleased that the Square Mile Collection brings us a copy of #6 in FN+ (pence printed) grade. (You can read about the Square Mile Collection here.) Whilst the Hulk was very definitely a Kirby designed creation, you can get a real kick out of seeing how Steve Ditko tackled ol’ green-skin in this full length adventure up against the Metal Master. Great cover colour and gloss, tight, flat and fresh, excellent staples, sharp corners, with just minimal spine creases and a very faint suggestion of slight historic stain in a 5p sized area above the number box; there is also the slightest sign of a very faint small crease across the bottom right corner with just the faintest trace of a colour break across 1 cm of the Hulk’s foot, but I’m being really picky here! A beautiful addition to any Hulkophile’s collection! High resolution images are available on request.
