RETRO REVIEW: Hulk #107 & #108

Hey ho, everyone, I'm back this week with a new RETRO REVIEW.  Sorry that I was not able to post last week, but I was tied up with selling and buying property and frankly just ran out of time to write up a new post and then was away from a computer, so I couldn't even repost an old column.  So again, I apologize to my … [Read more...]

RETRO REVIEW: Hulk # 181
