Thank you for your business and please recommend us to your friends! This is a RARE VINTAGE ORIGINAL 1966 THE INCREDIBLE HULK POSTER, it’s VERY BIG, and it measures about 42 inches by 29 inches. This 1960’s Hulk poster was released at the height of the MMMS (Merry Marvel Marching Society 60’s Fan Club), and it was produced by a company called Personality Posters, who also produced a 1966 poster of the Amazing Spider-man. This scarce poster features the timeless Hulk pose originated by Jack Kirby, who along with Stan Lee, was the co-creator of the Hulk back in 1962. This’66 Hulk poster looks MUCH bigger in person, and it was made back when a poster was a poster! I believe the art on this giant-size Hulk poster is by Marie Severin, an extremely talented Marvel Bullpen artist, based on the original pose by Jack “King” Kirby. This Hulk pose was originally seen in the cover artwork for the 1960’s “Tales To Astonish” issue 67 comic book from 1965, and this listing is for the Hulk poster ONLY of course, and not the comic book. Here’s some further history on this Hulk poster: Just to clarify, this is not the little 17 by 11 inch’66 Hulk poster that was part of an 8 pack posters kit by the Merry Marvel Marching Society that showed the Hulk, Spider-man, Dr Strange, Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, etc. And furthermore, this vintage 1960’s giant-size poster predates the 1971 Marvel Third Eye blacklight posters by 5 years, it predates the 9 or 10 set of 1970 Marvelmania posters by 4 years, and is MUCH rarer! This giant-size Hulk poster was released when Marvel Mania was still in it’s infancy and was no doubt printed in fairly small quantities. There probably aren’t many left in existence, and most of the few remaining posters are not likely to be intact or in nice condition. IMPORTANT CONDITION NOTES (see photos): This 1966 Hulk poster still retains it’s gorgeous colors, but has a big fold across the center from a previous owner, paper tanning, a lot of “foxing” (discoloration spots), pinholes, discoloration, some creases, many crinkles, tears in center area (some of which have been mended from the back side of the poster with tape), discolored tape, 2 small holes near Hulk’s left forearm (see the photo where I’m pointing at it), other tears, etc. With this in mind, I’d only grade this poster as “fair” condition (using comic book grading terms). I’m 100 percent certain that many poster collectors and poster sellers would probably grade this poster higher, but I prefer to grade more conservatively. This doesn’t change how rare this poster is one bit, and as I mentioned above, the colors are still gorgeous and it looks MUCH LARGER in person. It’s incredible this scarce poster even survived the 1960’s, 1970’s, 1980’s, 1990’s, the 2000’s, and now. There can’t be many of these posters left in existence after all these years, and there weren’t that many made to begin with.
