HAD to pick up the 1st Special, despite the face, it's STILL Steranko..!!Beautiful cover, well worth the investment.
Yup, it's a good 'un!
The Steranko Hulk cover was used (original face as well) for Mighty World Of Marvel number 129 (weekly) - Love those early Hulk comics and those King Size editions from the 60s - early 70s just have something about them that the newer editions can't replicate would love to pick these up - McScotty
Yeah, I think I've still got MWOM #129 and noticed that a good few years back. We Brits got quite a few covers unaltered from how they were originally drawn.
In FOOM Magazine (hows that for a blast from the past!) they described the Hulk annual cover like this: "Ads showed a Steranko drawing of a sweating, straining Hulk. When the book was published the Hulk had a non-sweating Marie Severin head attatched". Er- I THINK they meant a "non-sweating Marie Severin-DRAWN head".
I'm lucky enough to have a complete set of FOOM mags, NP - I must dig 'em out and give 'em a look one day soon.
totally iconic cover that .Reminded me of FOOM and then you nonchalantly state the obvious....FOOM was like gold to my young mind,I had a couple of issues,swaps of course.(vision and Doctor Doom covers)My friend had the poster on his wall...was that not a steranko piece also?
Baab, yes - that poster was a Steranko piece. I must unfold it and take a photo for the blog one day. To be honest, I didn't think it was all that great. Good, but not great.
