It’s the last PADSMASH! of 2011, and we are looking at The Incredible Hulk 343 .
The Hulk’s trek to get SHIELD’s Gamma bombs momentarily halts as he is reunited with Betty, and a trio of the Leader‘s robots.
And, did you ever wonder where Sam Larroquette and Craig Saunders came from, or what makes them tick? If the answer is yes, or even if it is no, their stories are revealed this issue.
Oh, yeah. Rick takes on the Hulk and wins!
And, in our classic tale, The Hulk is given the choice to join The Leader in the dark side, or face certain death in Tales to Astonish 71 and 72.
Download, enjoy, share.
Finally, PADSMASH! returns, armed with explanations as to what happened with my retirement.
Then, with that out of the way, we dive into a pair of classic stories in which Bruce Banner dies, but the Hulk lives on, and the Leader has some conflicting views on humanoids from Tales to Astonish 69 and 70.
Then, in Incredible Hulk 342, Half-Life returns to plague the Hulk, and brings the gray goliath to the brink of death.
And, the Leader’s plots thicken, as Betty banner is brought into the fold, and a MAJOR revelation that will give us one of the strongest cliffhangers of the run so far.
