  Wait a second, where exactly is the Savage Land? I thought it was in The Antarctic, but here t is under China. The Bullpen's grasp of geography seems tenuous.

  The artwork on Hulk is consistently great.
Nice story, reminds of some of Edgar Rice Burroughs epics.

  I really want to grab Stan by the shoulders and scream "a million million is two million, a thousand thousand is two thousand and a billion billion is two billion."

  The missile carries Hulk to Antarctica "in a matter of minutes," see last panel, page 8.

  Decent beginning to this arc, but I wonder if the annual shouldn't have gone before the Mandarin story. The Inhuman battle occurring in between makes no sense...

  I'm starting to really love the Hulk, and this story was excellent, even though I'm not the biggest Ka-Zar fan. What I'm really liking is that every single person who tries to help the Hulk eventually gets alienated by him because he doesn't understand or trust anyone's motivations, and at this point Banner has been in Hulk form for so long that every transformation has to be that much more tragic for him.

  I was really looking forward to a jumbled simple argument between Hulk and Ka-Zar:

"Hulk strong!"
"No, Ka-Zar lord of jungle!"

Alas, there was none.

  3 stars for the Hulk going native!!!

Cover Me - Nice use of the title being carved in the cliff face!!

Green Dawn - I actually didn't mind 7 pages of Hulk smashing Commies!

Barney - What the hell kind of dinosaur is on page 13???

Purrrfect - +1 star for Zabu the Zealous!!!

  Commies and Ka-Zar and swamp-men, oh my.

  In this issue, the Hulk takes a trip down south......waaaaaaaay south. Who knew China Airlines flew all the way to the Savage Land?

It sure was nice and convenient for Hulk/Banner to land so close to that weather machine. You know how long it takes for a house call whenever I need a repairman?

And speaking of the weather machine, there's an untold story here: I can't help but wonder how it affected a certain African girl named Ororo.....?

3 stars. Decent issue, and one of the most imposing-looking renditions of Ka-Zar I've seen so far in the Order.

  Unfortunately sir, you are incorrect. When using the English language to represent mathematics, a statement such as "a thousand thousand" translates to 1000 x 1000, which is one million.

  Looks like we're off on a new arc! Trimpe's squinty Hulk always reminds me of Joe Shuster's Superman.

As specialque said, it's been a while since we saw Banner, and he only briefly makes an appearance here. That's a great plot device waiting to happen, where Banner only gets to exist in short bursts while spending the majority of his time as Hulk, growing more and more.detached to a world that has forsaken him.

The Swamp Men are to Ka-Zar as the Yancy Street Gang is to the Thing.

  I hope Kim Jong Un never reads this. Apparently all North Korea has to do to increase it's missile range is add a Hulk.

I really enjoyed the art in this on. It was simple, but very dynamic. I didn't even mind Ka-Zar in this one.

I can't help but feeling that the Savage Land would be an excellent place for the Hulk to just stay. Not story-wise, but as an end to his quest for peace and solitude. Not to say that the Savage land isn't dangerous, it's just not dangerous to Hulk

  Ka-Zar and Hulk. Now all we need is Groot and it's a party.

  What an inconvenient time to turn to into the Hulk (as if any time is convenient...)

I like that Bruce Banner is used here merely as a plot element as the sole solution to the world-destroying weather problem.
But I think that there would be more super-heroes searching for a solution to such world-spanning weather change...I think Reed would be the first to do something against it...or at least try to find the cause/source
