Believe your eyes - this is a truly exceptional, original copy of Marvel Comics 1974 issue of Incredible Hulk #181, featuring the 1. Full story appearance of Wolverine, with classic Herb Trimpe artwork on the iconic cover. This item was recently acquired raw by GDC, and Dolgoff himself, along with his main grading team, were immediately blown away by the outstandingly high condition - never in all our days had we seen a copy of this book with such quality presentation. With absolutely pristine insides boasting bright white paper quality, and cover gloss that shines like the day it was printed - this is the kind of copy that gives you a double-take to make sure its not a reprint. The only flaws keeping it from a 9.8 are the couple minuscule spine stresses visible in the scans provided confirmed by the brief CGC grader notes provided below.
Incredible Hulk 181 11/74 Marvel Comics. Light spine stress lines breaks color. General note about Newtons Rings. Encapsulated comic books sometime exhibit a visual distortion, when held at certain angles, of oily rainbow patterns which are named Newtons Rings.These anomalies are not on the book itself, and are just an effect of the cases inner well pressing against the outer capsule. The Newtons Rings can occur in varying degrees from barely noticeable to significantly visible. There is unfortunately very little to be done in terms of re-holdering books which exhibit these rings, as there is no guarantee from the company responsible that the effect will not occur on the re-holdered book to the same degree or more. If this effect is bothersome to you as a collector, we strongly suggest sending a note to the company responsible for encapsulating the books and urging them to rework their holdering processes to cease the occurrence of this effect.
