- Full Description
The first volume of Hulk Masterworks covers the only six issues of the Incredible Hulk's first run as a solo title. It bears the distinction of being the very second title introduced into Marvel's stable of super-heroics, but also the first title to get the axe! Stan and Jack were learning their way through the character and what it could offer, and that confusion is very clear throughout these initial stories. It may be hard to believe, but at first, our iconically green-skinned goliath was colored gray! But by Incredible Hulk #2, he is colored green, unnannounced, unexplained and without any fanfare. His behavior and intellect also fluctuate on a bi-monthly basis (yes, these early issues of Hulk were delivered every other month).
Initially, the Hulk seems to be a shrewd intellect, but a very abrasive fellow at the same time. In the second issue, he's dumbed down, and as the series goes on, he also flashes signs of Banner's identity, except perhaps a darker side of the doctor's persona. It's quite something to see the editorial twists and turns that Stan, Jack and Steve took during Incredible Hulk #1-6.
