Retro Foreign: Brazilian O Incrivel Hulk #25 - 27

O Incrivel Hulk #25 - 27 contains Star Wars stories for Brazilian comic readers.

O Incrivel Hulk #25a - Editora Abril, Brazil (July 1985)
contains Star Wars #39 and 40
O Incrivel Hulk #26a - Editora Abril, Brazil (August 1985)
contains Star Wars #41 and 42
O Incrivel Hulk #27a - Editora Abril, Brazil (September 1985)
contains Star Wars #43 and 44
O Incrivel Hulk stars the Incredible Hulk of course.  But, being an digest-sized anthology title, it also contained many other Marvel stories including Marvel's Star Wars comics.  Star Wars would receive it's fair share of covers for this title including the first two issues of the Empire Strikes Back adaptation, O Incrivel Hulk #25 and 26.

When these issue were published, The Incredible Hulk television series had already finished it's 5 year run in the U.S. in 1982.  It is interesting that the cover to O Incrivel Hulk #27 shows the stars Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno in their roles at Dr. David Banner and the Hulk.  Star Wars just gets a mention on the cover.
