Speaking of hitting, today I'm dong a quick review of a classic issue of the Incredible Hulk, Issue 313.
For those not in the know, this the last issue of the Hulk's "Crossworld Saga" from Mantlo.
Dr. Strange was forced to sentd the Hulk into the interdimensional gateway called the Crossworlds when Hulk transformed into the Savage Hulk.
with no other choice, sort of killng him, Dr. Strange banished the Hulk.
For 13 issues this new direction allowed Mantlo to go the fantasyLoTR route, exploring a different and twisted world that reflected his own fractered pyche.
Until another soul arives and fights Bruce to inhabit the Hulk's body.
Walter Lankowski., a.k.a., Sasquatch from Alpha Flight.
Yup, Mantlo had recently takeover the wrotting position from John Bryne, and writting both book at the time.
Thus the ending to this issue directly affects the beginning of Alpha Flight#29.
So Bruce decides to let a displaced Sasquatch takeover the Hulk's body, effectively freeing Bruce from the curse.
But is it happens, something goes wrong. Horribly wrong.
Oh, and the Beyonder. Yeah he shows up too.
Snag a couple of this and Alpha Flight#29 for cheap, proably at the quarter bins to find out what happened.
Also you can also pick of a copy of the whole "Crossworld Saga" available now in trade.
