I am very lucky to be the owner of the original artwork to Incredible Hulk 474 by Pete and Rebecca Woods. This was the last issue of the book before they rebooted it and is a great homage to the first issue of the Hulk comic book. In a weird turn of events, I now own both end of run covers when they rebooted the book, this one and the cover to issue 635. Also, issue 474 came out on the news stand on March 10, 1999 which happens to be my birthday.
I didn’t even know this line was coming out, looks to be based on the current Marvel’s Avengers animated cartoon. The Hulk figure isn’t too bad, if you have seen the cartoon, the look of the Hulk figure. Not a lot of articulation but a good Hulk figure none the less.
Today is a great day for Hulk fans! It is the extremely talented Sal Buscema’s birthday, he was born January 26, 1936. While my first few Hulk books were by the talented Herb Trimpe, it wasn’t until I saw Sal’s artwork that I fell in love with the Hulk comic book. He was able to perfectly capture all the emotions of the Hulk along with showing just how huge and powerful he was. There have been many talented artists on the book but Sal will always, always be my favorite artist. Happy Birthday Sal!
Not really sure what to make of this but Lego just announced a new line of hero related toys, the Brickheadz. The Hulk looks a little interesting but why not, right?

Marvel has released the official plot of the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok movie:
“In Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok – the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization – at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger – the Incredible Hulk!”
I really can not wait for this movie, how cool is it going to be seeing the Hulk in the gladiator outfit on the big screen.
