Marvel Masterworks: The Incredible Hulk, Vol. 1 by Stan LeeThe original six-issue run of The Incredible Hulk from 1962, prior to its cancellation. Scientist Bruce Banner rescues teenager Rick Jones from the testing grounds of his gamma bomb, only to have it go off and transform him nightly into a gray (and then greenish beginning in issue 2) combination of Frankensteins monster and Mr. Hyde. The Hulk goes up against several typically goofy science fiction and Communist enemies, but his primary antagonist is General Thunderbolt Ross, who hunts him obsessively.
While nostalgically enjoyable, Im not that surprised this line was cancelled after six issues; the Hulk barely smashes anything and is constantly trapped by forces that seem dated today like magnetism and hypnotism. Eventually Rick Jones starts controlling his mind to force Hulk to only do good deeds, which seemed odd and a bit of a cheat. And then theres the Teen Brigade... Lee and Kirby clearly created a great character, but he wasnt yet being used properly.
Most interesting to me was watching Lee struggle with shoehorning Banners transformations back and forth into the stories. Banner began by transforming into the Hulk only at night, which clearly had limitations and only lasted three issues; the final three issues, Banner is able to use gamma rays to change back and forth at will, which also has problems. To make Hulk change back into Banner voluntarily, he was given some of Banners intelligence which made him too much like Banner; later changes must have reversed this once the transformation was based on Banners level of anger. The only notable story here aside from the origin is in issue three, where Hulk is lured to a rocket and shot into space, which was to be used again at least once more as the setup for Planet Hulk.

For over a decade, stretching from the '80s into the '90s, Peter David scripted the adventures of The Incredible Hulk , a legendary run that truly earned the oft-overused moniker "fan-favorite. By the time David's run came to a close, it's safe to say he had put his indelible stamp on the Hulk, literally changing the way every writer who came after him would approach the character. In , artist Dale Keown joined David on the series, and for two years, the pair redefined the character with what has become one of the most fondly remembered arcs of David's entire run on the title.

Now, the pair are reuniting once more for a final story starring Marvel's jade giant.
