    The Incredible Hulk #181 (Marvel, 1974) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white pages. This is the most valuable comic book of the 1970s according to Overstreet, and unlikely to lose that status anytime soon. The first full appearance of Wolverine is in this issue, and he explodes into action from the first panel onward -- Hulk's trying to fight Wendigo, and Wolverine simply takes on both! The debut story is written by Len Wein and drawn by Herb Trimpe, and Wolvie's unique personality was already in place here. By the way, Hulk #181 was also the only comic to have the Shanna the She-Devil Marvel Value Stamp, which rendered -- if you're still regretting cutting the stamp out of yours, get this sharp-looking VF/NM copy would ease your pain! Overstreet 2005 VF/NM 9.0 value = $970; NM- 9.2 value = $1,300. CGC census 3/05: 217 in 9.0, 461 higher.
