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!
Marvel artist David Nakayama, who worked on a kid-oriented Hulk comic book before, has created a Hulk cow!! The Hulk Cow was commissioned for the San Luis Obispo County Cow Parade in California. The parade itself is an international art exhibit that has made its way to cities like Paris, Athens and Rome. The San Luis County event will feature 101 painted cows on display between September, 2016 and May, 2017 to celebrate the county’s agricultural history and growing arts scene.
The cows will be auctioned off for charity at the close of the event. The proceeds will benefit local San Luis County nonprofits.

Marvel has always had a good relationship with Harley Davidson and now they are taking it one step further. Harley dealerships in Australia and New Zealand have made a series of custom motorcycles based on various Marvel heroes and villains. I have to see the Incredible Hulk bike is the best looking bike out of all of them. The Iron Man bike does look pretty good also but the Hulk is definitely best. Take a look at all of them here: Marvel Harley Bikes

It was my birthday a few days ago and my girls got me some cool Hulk stuff.

They also got me a really cool Hulk pin with Sal Buscema artwork from Universal Studios, a small Hulk bobble-head from Universal Studios and a Hulk Funko keychain.
