Hulk (2008) #33 1:20 Tocchini Variant – July 2011
Welcome back to Covers from the Unknown!
Do you remember when Marvel used to like the X-Men?? Yeah, I know, me either…..but long ago, in a galaxy far far away, there was a time when that was true. They loved them so much that they gave them their own variant month!! It was called X-Men Evolutions. Many different comics each had their own X-Men grace the cover of the comic. Most were 1:20 variants, such as Cyclops on Amazing Spider-Man and Hope on Wolverine. The one that sticks out to me was Emma Frost on the Hulk. It was #33, a 1:20 variant by Greg Tocchini. I do like this since it shows the different incarnations of Frost.
The regular version of this comic has a print run of only about 28,000, so this does mean there are no more than 1,400 of these out there. Its not a lot at all. Sadly, since Fox owns her movie rights, and Marvel wants to disown all the X-Men I am not sure this will ever be a “hot” comic. But if you do want to take a chance, you can find these on the bay or amazon, many for under $10. In the wild, these seem to be very hard to find. This has not translated into higher online prices though. Take a chance, and while you are at it, look for a few of the other Evolutions variants also!
Happy Hunting fellas!
