After several years of reprinting Marvel Comics originally published in the US, Marvel UK under Dez Skinn started to commission original material and this collection brings us the Hulk stories from this era that have been unseen for 30 years. This volume includes the original tales from Hulk Comic as well as various Annuals and as a special bonus an original tale from Smash which was published by Odhams Press. I believe that all the original Hulk tales produced in the UK are included and a great selection of additional UK-originated Hulk artwork has been thrown in as an added attraction. I'm very happy that these rare tales are finally available to a wider audience although I wouldn't characterise these stories as classic Hulk adventures. For the most part, these tales are closer to the TV adaptions presented by Look-In than US comics and for that reason fans of the regular US Hulk comics may be a little disappointed.

The stories included are all quite short at around three black and white pages each and they are written in such a way as to be very accessible to the casual reader. However, the regular cast that would be familiar to readers of the US original is completely absent so no Thunderbolt Ross, Doc Sampson, Betty Ross or Rick Jones. Similarly, the array of super-villains that perpetually plague the Hulk have presumably gone on holiday i.e. No Rhino, Leader, Abomination etc. The Hulk does face some strange foes but it seems that these tales do not take place in the Marvel Universe proper as he doesn't run into any of his friends from the Avengers or the Fantastic Four. Finally, this version of the Hulk is a little less powerful than the regular US Hulk and more in line with the Bill Bixby / Lou Ferrigno TV version.

I have waited for this for a long time,together with a lot of others who grew up in the 1970s in the UK. I used to own the Hulk Weekly comics as a kid and thought this would be a good way to relive my childhood. Well, it is and it isn't.
First of all the size of the book - it is standard graphic novel size whereas the comics used to be larger than A4 size.
Secondly the content - it doesn't cover all the comics, just Hulk Weekly 1-6, 9-20 and 26-28 as sell the authorised Annuals.
It is great to see content and pictures from the Annuals featuring the Incredible Hulk tv show but half this book is short stories from these annuals and not comic strips ( and if you we're anything like me as a kid you used to skip the written short stories and went straight for the comic strips).
On the plus side there are a lot of the covers from the comics featured here, which are very welcome.
So all in all it is good to see this book come out but it could have been much better served as a more expensive ,expanded , larger Omnibus type book with more material. As it is it's a nice overview of a bygone age of UK comics.

The real gem in this collection is a story from Smash, drawn by an unnamed Spanish artist. It's almost like the yarn Lee-Kirby-Ditko forgot.

Nice package but... 22 July 2013
By J. Nicholas Dirga - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While I'm really happy to see some of the rare Marvel UK material be collected, be warned - only about 1/3 of this book if that are actual comics, mostly black and white as originally printed in the UK. At least half the book is made up of Hulk prose stories with a few illustrations, the kind of filler stuff used to fill out the back of comics that I suspect most people never actually read. Another hefty chunk of the book is miscellaneous cover and art reproductions. While it's a nicely assembled collection, I was kind of hoping that a bit more of it had included actual comic stories. It's still worth a look if you're a big Hulk fan but perhaps a little less essential than imagined.
