Maybe because of that, the first two OHCs of Bruce Jones's Hulk run are my quintessential comics Hulk. They captured the lonely fugitive on the run, mixed with the dark force of nature presentation of the Hulk, with a dash of nifty X-Files-type conspiracy mystery, and the calm, meditative, beatific Banner we saw in both the Incredible Hulk and Avengers movies. It's just the best of all worlds.
After that, I do love Planet Hulk for its story, though it feels sort of a far cry from my ideal Hulk.
me too, I really enjoyed the Jones run on the Hulk. Planet Hulk was probably the best story of recent times. I read a lot of the Hulk growing up but somehow lost all my comics
(Hulk ones that is) during moves to college and back. So I have been getting the Peter David Visionaries titles so I can reread those stories since that is the time I was reading him. There are some great ones in there but a reread is in order for my old and foggy brain.
