This is a good book with good stories, unlike todays comics theres a lot of reading, if you are interested in the Hulk or the early Avengers this is where to start. Also these stories are not dumb and written for dumb people, they are actually quite intelligent.

HASH(0xa1c36d38) out of 5 stars A good place to start Sept. 5 2012
By Kaleb Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After reading Essential Iron Man vol. 1 I started in on this guy. Some of The Hulk's origin and early adventures were quite intriguing. It didn't matter to me that it was black and white (although you do miss a bit of the flash and awe of the art with black and white). I think some of the stuff is funny (like Hulk transforming at sundown in the very early issues). The episodes with iconic characters were of more interest to me. General Ross, The Leader, and Abomination all great. I'll admit I tended to glaze over some of the episodes with lesser villains whose names escape me.

After The Avengers came out I bought this, Essential Iron Man Vol. 1 and Essential Thor Vol. 1, and if i were to recommend one, it would be Thor. Although they are all worth a read. Due to how much I like them I will continue to pick up the Essential volumes.
HASH(0xa1c36f84) out of 5 stars Jack "King" Kirby created the Marvel Universe Aug. 2 2015
By Neil R. King - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the beginning of one of the greatest characters in the marvel catalogue. The interesting part is how the character evolved in it's first few years. All I'm reading on these reviews is about Stan Lee. Stan Lee didn't have anything to to with this character. He wrote the dialogue after Jack Kirby plotted and drew all of the early issues. Lee was an editor, not a writer. What Kirby tapped into was the tastes of that generation. He created a nuclear powered frankenstein. He added his now famous human frailties that DC comics never had in their characters. The power with the pain. Kirby recreated the modern comic form. They are simple stories of mythology that we are still interested in over forty years later. The books Kirby didn't pencil, he plotted. How is Jack Kirby's name not next to Stan Lees under this title? Buy this because it's where modern comics began.

The Hulk is the strongest there is. Nothing else needs be said. A great buy to learn the history and the mystery of the early days.

This is good, it is sad that is only black and white, and it seems Marvel doesn't sell nothing like these Essential book in color
