The Incredible Hulk #1 is a key issue in the Silver Age Marvel universe. The character has not only proven himself over decades of comics, cartoons, and movies, the value of this comic book has put it in the “blue chip”comic book investment category.
Incredible Hulk #1 Value and Potential
As long as comic books remain a desired collectible, there is no reason to believe issues of Incredible Hulk #1 won’t hold their own against other “blue chip” Silver Age comics such as Amazing Spider-man 1, Fantastic Four 1, X-men 1, Avengers 1 and many others. The rumor is he will be in the 2012 Avengers movie, keeping him in the limelight for the time being.
Incredible Hulk #1 For Sale
The first issue is the issue to have, but don’t forget other keys such as Incredible Hulk 102 (first issue after a long hiatus) and Incredible Hulk 181, a key Wolverine issue.
For a reference, a copy of #1 sold for $14,340 in early 2011. As always, a good place to start for values are the live sales on E-bay, along with a review of recently completed auctions. The live sales are posted below.
