  3. SOLD! Incredible HULK pin up - Larry Lieber on pencils and Marie Severin on inks. Image size 16" X 11", I don't think this was ever published. Page is off-white and in great condition. There is whiteout for lettering corrections in the HULK logo and some very slight whiteout on the artwork.

  6. What a great post. Well worth reading. Thank you.
  7. Never published to my knowledge, but I like it I figure I will never own the original image it's based on, so this is a pretty nice substitute Worth noting: check out the near-perfect roundness of the kirby krackle elements
  8. Because Stan knew that covers sold comic-books? Folks say a lot of things about Stan but one thing's for sure, Stan Lee was a great comic-book editor.
