  1. Not my era but this image used on his own books covers later is the definitive looking SA Hulk to me. Kind of a silly pose if you stop and think about it too...
  2. I think it’s based on his UK work and his various drawings over the years in general and not tied to doing it as series. They kind of suggest that too as it’s a chance to see different artists versions. I’d have given Ditko an honorable mention myself although there’s little work there too but he did an interesting version on his own and completely changing Kirbys version when he inked it.
  3. One of the better covers in the Voodoo run IMO and still not in the stratosphere like so many of its PCH family....
  4. My first Hulk book was #166 off the newsstands. I have some very nostalgic memories of the book back then including issue #168’s cover. Early on in my collecting a friend gave me a copy of issue #120 and #118 was in Stan’s Origins of Marvel Comics book so I became hooked on Trimpes early run which to my child’s mind looked better than what I was seeing of him in 1973 maybe partly due to Severin’s inking. Was never a big fan of either Trimpe or Sal Buscema’s work then but if either had a good inker they were able to produce some nice cover work...
  5. I think it went on the higher end of what many expected though. Certainly far above the Baker piece sited earlier in the thread. I think hitting 200k was a long shot this year. I know one collector who certainly would have bid on it and another who might have made a run too but 2020 has been a strange year and both were sidelined from bidding this year. I think it’s a great piece to own whomever got it...
  6. Picked up as a VF- at a good price. Tough first issue in grade. Great cover in any condition...
  7. A side trip from horror to crime... Kind of digging Al Camy’s work these days...
  8. I was very surprised this was a “thing” when I first found out about it. But I wouldn’t purchase a book with rust, heavy foxing, super tan pages/cover, brittle pages, pages missing, coupons cut, or books that are really ugly like so many .05’s are regardless if they are rare and super keys or not and yet there are buyers for all of these. Probably a few more things that would push my money elsewhere. It just gets to the point where I’d rather own a near minty 1967 Camaro SS vs owning the tires or misc. parts from a 1963 Ferrari GTO or a old Bugatti that is 90% rusted into pieces to use a vintage car analogy. That said who am I to demonize a market if there are buyers? I’m sure it’s probably taken on an “art” aspect too since I’m assuming buyers are hanging their pages like pictures. So it’s certainly a worthy thread and I admit to enjoying looking at some of the better pages posters have...
  9. I was wondering if anyone would notice this copy. Smart pickup in grade.
  10. New one. This is a polish publication from 1987 with a Frazetta cover and some inside work. Fantastyka introduced the Witcher series FYI. This is from Forrest J. Ackermans collection.
  11. As a fan the 1974 San Diego Comic Con at the El Cortez Hotel. As a dealer the 1989 San Diego Comic Con at the performing arts center. The Batman craze was in full swing and I bought I believe my second copy of Detective Comics #27 that year...
