Comic Book: Incredible Hulk (1968 series)

What This Book is About:
The longest Hulk volume to date continued the numbering from the Hulk's previous book, Tales to Astonish (where he shared the book with other characters like Ant Man or the Sub-Mariner). This volume is creatively speaking, perhaps the richest of them all, including the work of top creators like Sal Buscema, Dale Keown, Gary Frank, Herb Trimpe, Lein Wein, Bill Mantlo and Peter David.
