    Description

    The Incredible Hulk #1 Don/Maggie Thompson Collection pedigree (Marvel, 1962) CGC VF+ 8.5 White pages. As implausible as it might have seemed even a few years ago, this has become second only to Amazing Fantasy #15 on Overstreet's Top 20 Silver Age Comics list (tied with Fantastic Four #1). In Overstreet's 25th edition (1995), it still ranked behind the likes of Showcase #8. In this grade and anything above VF/NM 9.0, it's rarer than FF #1. The big deal is about the origin and first appearance of the Hulk. There's also first appearances of Rick Jones, Betty Ross, and Thunderbolt Ross in this issue, which boasts one of Jack Kirby's all-time iconic covers and interior art. We've offered a copy this nice on just five previous occasions over the years, most recently in 2009 when a 9.2 copy went for $125,475! Overstreet 2013 VF 8.0 value = $30,000; VF/NM 9.0 value = $67,500. CGC census 11/13: 6 in 8.5, 14 higher. From the Don and Maggie Thompson Collection.
