I am a new member from Italy, Roma.

I have a problem: I search for BOKURA MAGAZINEs with the Japanese Hulk Manga stories, in Japanese language: Hulk the Manga.

Hulk: The Manga is a Japanese manga re-telling of The Incredible Hulk within a Japanese setting. It was originally published in Japan in 1970 in Weekly Bokura Magazine and written by Kazuo Koike of Lone Wolf and Cub fame, with art by Yoshihiro Morifuji:

Is there somebody who can help me to find these stories? I really would like to have them.

Please help me.
Thank you

I search for the actual paper magazines but I don't know where to find them.
If somebody has these Japanese stories and don't want to sell them and want to keep the originals, can contact me please?

For me it is very important is to have these stories.
Thank you very much.

That's asking for downloads, which is against the rules

A just ruler amongst tyrants

I understand your frustration, but I'll be perfectly blunt with you. The hulk manga is almost certainly lost to all but extremely hardcore collectors. I'll list out the reasons and the ways you can search for it:

The Hulk was never actually released in a volume format. I assume you're familiar with the fact that even in the early 70's, manga was serialized weekly in chapters and then compiled into volumes. So if you want access to this manga, you'll actually need to find the MAGAZINES that contained the chapters (you're looking for 1970 versions, but I couldn't find the actual volume numbers in my small search). On the bright side, Bokura only ran for 10 years, and you want some of the youngest of the volumes... so if you're going to find any, you'll probably find stuff around what you want.

If you do purchase this, it's going to come from auction sites. And most of those don't provide international shipping, so you'll also need to employ a middle man to recieve it in Japan and then ship it to you. And we're talking expensive collector's items, as well.

If you continue to pursue this, the japanese title for Bokura magazine is 週刊ぼくらマガ ジン (Shuukan Bokura Magazine, or Weekly Bokura Magazine). You will probably actually find more auctions for simply ぼくらマガジン , which removed the 'weekly' from the name.

An example of what comes up searching auctions for Bokura Magazine can be found HERE. It's a manga titled 'Tiger Mask'... appears to be a professional wrestling manga with the main character wearing a tiger mask... looks astoundingly awesome. There's a semi-useful list of auction helpers HERE, although I'm not sure how up to date the list is. And this site actually has a lot of interesting mangas listed that were serialized in the late issues of Bokura Magazine, but has no mention of the Hulk.

Auction sites I know of:

Like I said, it'll be a while before you find it, if you ever do... Hope all that helped.

Wow SnoopyCool... you are very kind, I really appreciate your informations.
I knew it is not simple to find these stories but I try and will try forever...
I don't mind to spend more for shipping cost or other problems like this, for me the important is to find the stories.
I know here is not possible to ask for forbidden things but if I should find a collector, Japanese or not, having them I will be ready to offer money for simple copies of the stories.
I think this makes things more easy.
Thank you very much.
