Previous Post

1. Missed 100th issues by 2 books when book switched from Tales to Astonish to Incredible Hulk.

2. Issue 150. Hulk vs Biker gang. Seriously.

3. TIH 350. Todd McFarlane was supposed to do the whole Hulk vs Thing fight but he bolted 4-5 issues earlier. Woulda seen his Green Hulk and his Mr Fixit. Will never get over this!

4. TIH 400. Dale Keown departed with 398. Gary Frank not on it till 403. "Boooo!" the art in 400.

5. TIH 450. Deodato jr TIH artist 447-449 451-453. 450 by Jeff Rebner. Who's that indeed!

6. Missed Hulk's 500th issue to a relaunch.

7. Missed 550th issue cause of same relaunch.

8. Missed 650th cause of another relaunch.

9. And now missed 700th issue because book is arbitrarily being brought back at #709! Meanwhile Thor is getting a pretty kickass 700th issue/story.

Are we cursed?

Points 3 & 4 still irritate me with the "What if they..." scenario to this day.
I keep stumbling across old Keown interviews on how he was prepping for #400...

But I got some closure on a lifelong dream of a McFarlane Green Hulk when he did a Facebook Live drawing of the Hulk a couple of years ago. He even colored it green the next day. And now my avatar...and screen saver.

But to see a McFarlane Green Hulk in his hey-day...yeah, still bugs me it never happened.
