punchout part 2

drive-by readings

Hulk #24 (Marvel)
"The Strongest There Is"
Jeph Loeb
Ed McGuinness
Mark Farmer
Morry Hollowell
Richard Starkings/Comicraft
McGuiness/Farmer/Frank D'Armata (cover)
Dale Keown (variant cover)

what we learned: the final battle (yeah, right) between the original Hulk and Rulk (hey, they could be like Shake n Bake in Talladega Nights). Banner's masterplan unfolds and knowing he could beat Ross in a fight (laying waste to DC memorials in the process), backs him into a corner of defeat and humiliation. that is of course, until they need him again. that's a mistake that might blow up in their faces.
oh shit moment: great in-your-face artwork from Ed McGuinness. this is how it should end.
what's next: anybody still wondering why Red Hulk would be in Secret Avengers?

Honest Abe: "and what the hell are you two gonna do about this mess you made??"
