Incredible Hulk 474 Cover Original Artwork by Pete and Rebecca Woods

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.

Happy Birthday to Sal Buscema

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!

Paul Pelletier Planet Hulk Comic Convention Sketch

Paul Pelltier quickly became one of my favorite Hulk artists when he began his run on the Hulk comic book. When a great friend told me he was going to be at Baltimore Comic Con and invited me up to attend, I could not pass up the opportunity. This is one of my favorite commissions I have ever gotten. Paul did an amazing job and is also a great guy to talk to if you ever get the chance.

Incredible Hulk Issue 233 Page 7 Original Artwork by Sal Buscema

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.
