Wolverine's 3rd overall appearance in top CGC grade!
Since my previous two journals reflected on my CGC 9.8 WP copies of Incredible Hulk #180 and #181, I figured that it would only be appropriate to follow-up with a reflection on my Incredible Hulk #182 CGC 9.8 WP!
So as always, please enjoy the following scan and commentary!
Moreover, please check out my current #2 CGC Ranked Incredible Hulk #180-#182 Wolverine Set entitled, "Enter Wolverine!"
In doing so, you can view the back cover scan to this pristine beauty! The corners are razor sharp, the staples are perfectly inserted and the back cover is SNOW WHITE! :-) Enjoy!!
[bETWEEN HAMMER AND ANVIL!]
Incredible Hulk #182 showcases the "3rd" appearance of Wolverine, who is featured in a three-panel cameo on the first page!
In addition, we also have the 1st appearance of Hammer & Anvil!
As if this issue did not contain enough substance to be classified as a Bronze Age "Key" already, we also have the very 1st appearance & "death" of Crackajack Jackson!
As with Incredible Hulk #180 and #181, the classic cover & art was drawn by the legendary Herb Trimpe, and the story was written by the original creator of Wolverine ... Mr. Len Wein!
According to the CGC Census Report, as of 9/27/13, there are zero (0) copies graded as either a 10.0 or a 9.9.
Further, there is only one (1) copy graded as a Qualified 9.8 and only one (1) copy graded as a Signature Series 9.8. Moreover, there are only a mere total of seventeen (17) copies (including my copy) graded as a Universal 9.8.
Based on these statistics, coupled with perfect "white page" preservation, makes this Incredible Hulk #182 one of the finest copies in the world!
