Puny Covered Blog Readers, Hembeck drawing prove Hulk smash Thing in one-on-one brawl.-Hulk
Awesome! I gotta get me a haircut like Hulk here!
For whatever reason, I take great pleasure that this blog has featured 2 Secret Wars covers; one by Fred and the other by Jeffrey Brown.
The text on the cover always cracked me up, even when I first bought this issue as a Marvel zombie when it first came out. 150,000,000,000 TONS?? That is not in accordance with the OFFICIAL HANDBOOK OF THE MARVEL UNIVERSE.
That's a good point.
Dude, the Hulk isn't holding a mountain up. He's pushing the rest of the planet down.
This was the issue in which Secret Wars jumped the shark.With Secret Wars #2, it was issue #1!
Marvel Comics may have jumped the shark with Secret Wars. This started the horribly manipulative trend of tie-in, event comics. It was the beginning of the end for me, anyway. Wasn't the true purpose of this comic to sell toys? I still have some of them in a shoe box.Don't get me wrong, I went apeshit for Secret Wars when it came out. I didn't feel like a chump until Secret Wars II. Kitty Pryde and Wolverine didn't help either. I guess the real time Marvel jumped the shark was when Kirby left, but I still have a real fondness for a lot of late 70's / early 80's Marvels. It's probably nostalgia, .
I figured it out....Al Milgrom was the shark!
