Default The Incredible Hulk #206 Cover by Dave Cockrum


The Incredible Hulk #206 Cover by Dave Cockrum

This looks to be a first version of Dave's famous cover to The Incredible Hulk #206. I say first version because the hair was definitely changed on the final cover. This image of the Hulk was used for a lot of Marvel Merchandise in the 1970s & 80s.

The Comic Reader #145 Cover by Dave Cockrum

Pre-Internet, this is how we got our comic book news: fanzines! On the cover to this one, we find out that John Byrne will be taking over as the artist on the X-Men. Quite a moment in Marvel Comics history!

X-Men by Dave Cockrum

I believe that Dave created this art for an ad promoting his appearance at El Dorado Comics in Pennsauken, NJ in either 79 or 80. This piece was ran in the Courier Post, which is our local newspaper. I got to meet Dave at this appearance. I was 10 or 11.

Default Aurora Prehistoric Scenes Tyrannosaurus Rex Model Box Art by Dave Cockrum


Aurora Prehistoric Scenes Tyrannosaurus Rex Model Box Art by Dave Cockrum

If you were a kid in the early to mid 1970s, you probably got one of these Aurora Prehistoric Scenes Model Kits as a kid. Did you know that Dave Cockrum designed & provided the art to many of them? The above is my favorite!

One of the things I loved about Mr. Cockrum, was that he never took Wolverine too serious. Before Byrne, Logan was a slobby drunk. I loved the playfullness Mr. Cockrum brought to the Uncanny X-men. And while Wolverine was Byrnes favorite, Nightcrawler was Cockrums, and I always thought Kurt was a more interesting character than Wolverine.

Remember those days when Wolverine was rarely the cover star of the X-Men? I think Colossus was in the Cockrum/Byrne days.

Added X-Men to the title. Hopefully, that will fuel more discussion & pics!

I had never seen this thread before. I am glad that it was posted at the top. I always said that no one could design a costume like Dave Cockrum. Would love to have see more of this Legion of Super Heroes work in this thread also.


Hoping for a Phase 6 with FS Statues of the following

  • Moondragon
  • Mantis
  • Wonder Man (in the Perez Designed costume)
  • Havok (need a new one in his classic costume because the existing one is too expensive on Ebay)
  • The Red Guardian (The Defenders member-this one is a longshot)
  • and a REALLY GOOD Phoenix Museum pose
