TALES TO ASTONISH #61
Thunderbolt Ross triumphant?! The man who's made it his mission in life to track down the Hulk finally succeeds in this issue, with the Jade Giant manacled and at the mercy of his most relentless foe. But hey, because Stan Lee never believed in giving readers too little, this issue also features the debut of Major Glenn Talbot, a man who would also continue to pester the Hulk for years afterwards, as well as become a rival to Bruce Banner for Betty Ross' affections!
Can mild, regular human Rick Jones save the entire universe? The Kree-Skrull War reaches its memorable conclusion in this issue, beginning with Rick trapped at the mercy of Annihilus in the danger-laden Negative Zone while Captain Marvel and the Avengers lead a final assault on the Skrull armada! What can a teenage Rick do to put a stop to the cosmic war? Find out how he did what no other Avenger could in this titanic issue!
THE INCREDIBLE HULK #319
After years of "will-they-or-won't-they," Bruce Banner and Betty Ross finally tie the knot! Comics legend John Byrne gives fans the wedding they've waited for, but with the Hulk separated from Bruce Banner and running around wreaking havoc, you can bet this won't be the quietest celebration of the year! Will Betty and Bruce even make it to the altar, or will the Hulkbusters disrupt the party? Get ready for the most smash-tastic wedding in Marvel history!
Bruce Banner's gamma-irradiated cousin gets her very own series once more courtesy of Dan Slott and Juan Bobillo! When Jen Walters finds herself kicked out of Avengers' Mansion and fired from her law firm, she has no choice but to take a long, hard look at her life...or become embroiled in a bar fight, one of the two. This issue laid the groundwork for Slott's instant-classic run, and provides the perfect introduction to Shulkie's world! Plus, a battle in space with M.O.D.O.K.! What more can you ask for in a comic book, True Believer?
DOC SAMSON #1
Leonard Samson, psychiatrist to the super heroes, plays negotiator in the first issue of this limited series from acclaimed novelist Paul DiFilippo. When a Skrull calls S.H.I.E.L.D. and threatens to drop nuclear bombs on the Earth, Nick Fury calls Samson in to talk the shape-shifting Skrugly down. Since this is Marvel Comics and not Marvel Therapy Session, though, you can expect a good deal of action thrown in as Doc Samson proves he can flex more than just his mind muscles.
