So the UK reprint is the original?

Copies of this can be had for a couple of quid on ebay UK.!!!

I am not sure about the American sense of humour. Is this for real or is it extremely silly?

If the observations of the original poster in this thread are correct, then I'm not so sure. Silver age #2's from Marvel key characters typically lag in price and are much harder to sell.

Keep in mind it came out 1976 and Hulk 181 was 1974.

Hi.
Yes man I know. That's what I am saying. These reprints are worth pennies. What are you saying.

Just saying people apparently don't feel it's a big deal because it's almost 2 years later, even if it is the unaltered work.

Thanks for this. I thought that I was hallucinating different covers. But just to take this a little further I am sure that I have seen a third version of this cover. Where, when and how I cannot remember. Possibly a trade paperback?

There is also a version where less of the Hulk's face is seen. Not sure what it's about.

That's a different version for sure and thanks for taking part in this discussion. But I'm sure that I have seen yet a different version of this.

That’s actually pretty surprising since most MMEs go for like $10 but even when I bought it a couple of years ago it was $27 shipped (seller sold it as a VF+ so I think I did alright).

The Wizard Ace edition is now a bit cheaper with copies available for under $20 but it’s certainly less authentic.

Sorry. I meant the original artwork. Not that the comic was the original.
