Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
Top Five Month (check here to see an archive of all the top five lists featured so far) continues with a look at the best covers featuring the Thing versus the Hulk!
5. Fantastic Four #166
You’d be amazed by how many Thing vs. Hulk covers, no matter how cool the story was within, have the same straightforward angle of the set-up. This Rich Buckler/Dan Adkins cover is one of the more interesting ones.
4. Hulk/Thing: Hard Knocks #2
Pretty much all of the Jae Lee covers for this series were great. I almost considered doing #2 AND #3 for the 4 and 5 spots.
3. The Thing #3
This Andrea DiVito cover technically features Thing and Hulk ROBOTS, but while I guess I’d disqualify it as a Thing/Hulk STORY, I think it still works as a COVER. And as a cover, it’s very clever.
2. Fantastic Four #25
The first Hulk/Thing fight and a great cover by Jack Kirby and George Roussos.
1. Fantastic Four #112
The classic John Buscema and Frank Giacoia cover that pretty much inspired tons and tons of covers.
That’s the list! Agree? Disagree? Let me know!
