INCREDIBLE HULK 139! Original 1971 Herb Trimpe Cover Art! Marvel Comics!

Here it is! One of the most famous, most iconic covers of all time! Artist Herb Trimpe's "Many Foes Has The Hulk" cover, fronting HULK #139! A fabulous piece of work, spotlighting not only ol' Jade jaws, but also his never-ending cast of evil foes, such as the Sandman, Mandarin, and the ever-Absorbing man! Click to enlarge this power-packed piece of pulsating pencil-pushing!

I like how the colorist didn't recognize Sandman and colored his outfit silver;-)

I THOUGHT that was a bit odd! But, that outfit was still sorta new then....

Don't forget the Abomination and the original swamp monster (predating the Swampthing and the Manthing), the Glob!

I figured the colorist took some artistic license with Sandman's uniform since he was standing next to the Mandarin, also of green costume.
