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.

PAD wasn't fond of it because it basically retconned his merger storyline into the Merged Hulk being another personality now called the Professor.
I can't remember if I read it in Wizard Magazine, or on his website, the Merged Hulk was not supposed to be a new personality. It was a whole Bruce Banner in a composite Hulks/Banner body. And like everything else positive in Banner's life, it fell apart and his personality fractured again.

My beef with Jenkins run was the Devil Hulk (a snake, WTF?) and all those hundreds of various Hulk personalities in hiding.
I wasn't a fan of the Hulks being two separate personalities, as I was stuck (and still am) with the explanation that the Gray Hulk was the original and only Hulk-form and further gamma radiation mutated him into the Green Hulk. Same personality, same Hulk. Just bigger, stronger and meaner.
