Only mere days ago, the fan community was shaken to its core, due to my panic-packed post on Neal Adams' influential INHUMANS artwork from the mid-70s! Well, I'm back on the same track again, with a look at one of the most popular (and most visible) Hulk images of all time! Dandy Dave Cockrum drew the cover to 1977's INCREDIBLE HULK #206, and his dynamic pose of the Green Golem soon became one of the most iconic illos of all time! Don't believe me? Take a glance below to see some merry merchandise that featured this awesome artwork (with some minor tweaks here and there), on toys, posters, puzzles, even lamps! And why not? It is one of the best Hulk illustrations ever! Click images below to enlarge!

|Is it me, or does Hulk look as if he's sprinting away from something?|

Florida! Recognize that cover and pose, Frantic One?
