I am always on the lookout for Sal Buscema artwork from the Incredible Hulk comic book, especially the early years. That is what I consider Sal’s prime artwork time period. I was lucky enough to pick this page up recently from an auction, love the action shot of the Hulk in the top swimming through the water. I could look at his artwork for hours. This is page 7 from issue 233 and was of course drawn by Sal Buscema and inked by Chic Stone.
Anthony Mackie was doing an interview and he had the following comment:
“It’s more of an acting movie than an action movie. I feel like the story is very concise and interesting. And you get to see Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evens, Scarlett Johannsson and Mark Ruffalo, and everybody, just do really good acting.”
Sounds like the Hulk may be in the movie after all. Mark has denied it when the rumors first came out so it might be that his appearance is either a small cameo or is meant to be a surprise and may even lead into his appearance in the next THor movie.
Neca put out some great large scale figures for the Age of Ultron movie and they have finally released the Incredible Hulk for the line. Weighting a whopping 21 pounds (heavy!!!!), the figure has 25 points of articulation and looks pretty darn cool. The sculpting looks great and the figure comes with 2 sets of interchangeable hands. The figure retails for $300 and won’t be here til June 2016 but you can save $65 if you pre-order now here. The only bad thing I can say about the figure is the pants, it almost looks like he is just wearing sweat pants or something. Other than that, the figure looks great!!
So we know the Hulk won’t be in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie but he will be in the Thor Movie next year. To keep all us Hulk fans happy, you can re-watch this Coca-Cola Superbowl commercial over and over again and pretend it’s a Hulk movie (I know I will be doing just that). Watch and enjoy!!!!
Publisher IDW starting a series of books a few years ago called Artist’s Edition where they reproduce issues of comic books with the actual artwork from the artists that were used in making the original comic books. As a comic book fan who collects original artwork, I have to say this is a really cool idea. IDW has finally gotten around to doing a Herb Trimpe Incredible Hulk edition with Incredible Hulk issues #127, 131, 134, 146, 147, 153, and 156. This includes some classic early Hulk comics like the trial of the Hulk and the Hulk in Jarella’s world. It is just so cool to see the pencils and ink and even artists notes scrawled on the side of some pages. If you are a fan of the Hulk, you need to get this book. I can sit and just look and stare at the artwork for hours. I really hope that IDW is planning on doing a Sal Buscema version because that would be even more awesome.
