The Incredible Hulk was created by Jack Kirby and the legendary Stan Lee in 1962, it has been a staple of American culture ever since. An interesting piece of Hulk trivia is the fact that in the first issue of the classic comic series the Hulks skin was grey. The thinking at the time was that if the super strong character was drawn in a neutral color he wouldn’t be identified with any particular ethnic group, but the creators quickly realized that the color was problematic and changed his skin tone to green in issue #2 and the rest as they say, is history. In a nod to the first comic New Era and Marvel Comics have created this Issue #1 Hulk inspired trucker cap featuring Black Mesh back and side with a Black and Grey panel from an early Hulk comic book emblazoned on the front panel and brim. Pick one up now at Cap King.
