Marvel Comics and Wizard World‘s latest edition of its 2014 series of exclusive variant covers of the best Marvel titles with the unveiling of Hulk #1, drawn by superstar artist Mike Grell. VIP attendees at Wizard World Minneapolis Comic Con, May 2-4 at the Minneapolis Convention Center, will receive a free copy of the limited-edition book at registration.
Grell is scheduled to be on site at the event to sign copies (autograph fees may apply). Leading professional comic grader CGC will also be on hand to accept books for grading and Signature Series.
The colored version of Hulk #1 will be limited to 3,000 copies and provided free at registration to all Wizard World Minneapolis Comic Con VIP attendees, including any celebrity VIP packages.

Grell’s Hulk #1 follows the first three entries, Miracleman #1 and Miracleman #2, both drawn by Eisner Award Hall of Famer Neal Adams for Wizard World Portland Comic Con (Jan. 24-26) and New Orleans Comic Con (Feb. 7-9), respectively, and Wolverine #1, illustrated by noted cover artist Greg Horn, for Wizard World Sacramento Comic Con (March 7-9). Artwork is also complete for upcoming Wizard World shows: Daredevil #1 by Michael Golden for Louisville Comic Con (March 28-30), Wolverine & The X-Men #1 by David Mack for St. Louis Comic Con (April 4-6) and Amazing Spider-Man #1 by John Tyler Christopher for Atlanta Comic Con (May 30-June 1).
Grell knows a thing or two about comics… he’s been in the industry for more than 40 years, writing and drawing iconic strips and characters from Superboy to Tarzan to Batman. Most famously, Grell brought his own interpretation to the Green Arrow series, writing and occasionally drawing a redesigned look for the hero.
Following the shocking events of last month’s Indestructible Hulk finale, Bruce Banner lies at death’s door! If he survives, it won’t be as the Bruce Banner we’ve known! How will the Hulk wreak vengeance on Banner’s assailant? How can he? The series is by writer Mark Waid and artist Mark Bagley.
