I'm sure that I won't like it as much today (Probably because I read a ton of Jenkin's work, and a lot of it reads the same.), but I was reading the Paul Jenkins Hulk run when it came out (I read pretty much EVERYTHING back then!), and I liked it quite a bit (At least the first year or so.). The art by Ron Garney sure didn't hurt either, and I thought that General Ryker was actually a decent villain (Who has been used at least once since, hasn't he?).
But I remember reading that PAD had some problems with it, especially all of the Professor stuff that Paul did. What exactly did people have problems with? Did Jenkins retcon anything? I also thought that the Devil Hulk was pretty cool as well. And The Abomination fight in Hulk #25 was one of my all-time favorites, and just might be THE best ABomb story.

Abomination fight in #25 was good. It made up for the crap left over from the previous writer who came after PAD.

Jenkins was PAD-lite. None of the humor or pathos of PAD. Plus he had clown Hulks and all sorts of crap Hulks.

I also blame him for everyone calling the Grey Hulk Joe Fixit. That was just an alias. Gray Hulk never considered himself a thug. He was a Hulk. Now every time someone brings him around he's a Mafioso.
