The Incredible Hulk

A TVTA Special.

TVTA’s going green for this post, as we present comic covers, adverts and whatever else we found rampaging around the office Incredible Hulk related. Gaaarrrrrghhh! Don’t make us angry!



Thank you for losing your temper with us 🙂

Editor’s note, 26/03/19: Big thanks to Tim Robins for artist credit corrections on some of the UK Hulk comic covers.

A TVTA special.

Presenting: vintage and modern print adverts, comic covers, card games and merchandise featuring web-slinging superhero Spider-Man plus his friends and arch-enemies – all from the collection of TVTA! Enjoy 🙂 



Spider-Man Top Trumps cards and sets

edit: removed the Spider-Sense images temporarily as I was getting a lot of a spam on these images and WP seem more interested in pushing their crappy new editors down our throats than fixing spam and removing junk vitamin tablet accounts. The new WP editor is crap I know because I tried it to edit this post – and it was just a nightmare to use. Good job I still have classic editor at my disposal, though for how long I don’t know…


Thanks for looking 🙂

Post updated with new images September 2019.

Starriors by Tomy


Big thanks to fellow WP blogger Virtuanaut for sharing the image scans from the Starriors Marvel mini-comics series. To view the complete series be sure to visit Virtuanaut’s site.

Starriors was a short-lived line of toy robots made by Tomy in 1984 and 1985. The figures were released with Marvel mini-comics (6 comics in total). Marvel also published a 4-issue comic book series. Some of the Starriors toys were later altered and re-branded for European markets as R.A.T.S (Robot Anti-Terror Squad).

A Chirashi is a printed mini-poster or flyer used to promote film releases in Japan. The size of a typical Chirashi is “B5” (approx 7 x 10 inch /18cm x 26cm). A relatively cheap and space-saving alternative to regular-size industry posters, Chirashis make excellent movie memorabilia collectables. You can find all my Chirashi posts here
