The poor man's #181 is Incredible Hulk #180. It's also on the Hot 100 list, and although Wolverine does appear in cameo on the last page, the REAL first appearance is this one.
Prices of this book continue to astound. CGC 9.8s are into the $13,000 territory.
At the other end of the spectrum, an INCOMPLETE 0.5 copy sold for $425 in January 2016!
(I hate to call somebody out, but whoever paid that was a total numbskull. For $100 more, they could have at least bought a complete 2.0 copy. But low-grade examples are common. Avoid this end of the market.)
Wolverine isn't going away anytime soon. More X-Men movies are being made. The franchise shows no sign of slowdown. Nor do prices of Hulk #181.
We recommend a crisp CGC 9.0 with white pages. Buy it now before it gets even more brutally pricey.
