Though he’s never had a great movie, the Incredible Hulk has had some amazing comics. Here’s a quick guide to stocking up your library with some tomes guaranteed to smash boredom like a cardboard wall!
ESSENTIAL INCREDIBLE HULK VOL. 1, Jack Kirby/Various (A) Stan Lee (A), Marvel
Like the leader’s bulbous head, this is a good jumping on point! HULK SMASH LEADER!
Essential Incredible Hulk is simply that, an absolute indispensable tome of fun for anybody serious about the Hulk or comic books. This book is the essence of silver age comics: ideas and action front and center as story and continuity take to the back seat. In any given issue the miracle team of Stan and Jack will rewrite the Hulk’s origin, powers or limitations in order to suit the story. Though reprinted in black and white, the Hulk originally appeared Gray for a while before turning green…who cares about consistency when you’re having a blast?!
Why buy this? NO OTHER comic has as much entertainment page per page. Removed from creative restraints, Essential Incredible Hulk is what happens when two greats throw together stories about a rampaging monster with a heart. Hulk battles aliens, communists, and other flaky freaks as he struggles to clear his name and win the girl. A sheer blast, and more enjoyment than you should be allowed to have for this price!
