It’s with great sadness that we say goodbye to Hulk’s first series after only six short issues.
Thankfully, Marvel kept the angry green giant alive by featuring him in the new Avengers series and Tales to Astonish.
Making his first appearance in Incredible Hulk #6 is Metal Master, who is a bit like Magneto.
Metal Master has only made 13 comic appearances since 1963.
Also making their first appearance is the Teen Brigade, a group of super human teenagers, organized by Rick Jones.
Hulk #6 is also the first time Bruce Banner transforms into the Hulk due to extreme anger and stress.
IH #6 doesn’t feature any type of conclusion or cliffhanger, and life seems to continue on as normal for the Incredible Hulk characters.
It wouldn’t be until 1968’s Incredible Hulk #102 that the solo series continues.
As the final issue of the first Incredible Hulk series, IH #6 can command a huge value on the comic collector marketplace.
For those looking to have a complete volume 1 Incredible Hulk collection, #6 is the last stop and a great collector’s item.
Depending on the condition, IH #6 can net owners between $150 and several thousand dollars. So far, the highest sale for IH #6 was $20,000.
