  This little run of the Hulk has just been terrible.

  Betty BRANT is in the missile base? Stan must not have had his first cup of coffee.

  This one was disappointing after several good issues.

  Blah, but really easy to read.

  Kinda mediocre yet still entertaining. The fight with the Sandman was good but the inconsistencies with what the Hulk can and can't do is troubling.

  The Sandman should have just suffocated the Hulk by flying up his nose.

  Hulk calls Betty Ross Betty Brant.

I thought we left this behind in '63.

  2 stars for the Sandman finding somebody dumber than he is!!!

Cover Me - Not a bad cover...not great, but still not bad!

Convenient - So, the spaceship just happens to be gamma powered. Even though last issue it was hydro-atomic powered...

Timeline - I guess the Sandman forgot about teaming up with the Frightful Four and attacking Medusa in MSH #15!!

Extras - @imeco: He wears it because it contains different materials to mix with his sandy form. Although, he doesn't use any in this issue!!

Rejuvenated - Gen. Ross was so shocked that the Hulk saved the day, his hair turned brown!! (p20,p6)

'Nuff Said - "Sand is making sounds..."-Hulk

  I just absolutely love this cover. Classic work by Trimpe.

  Sandman needs a tailor and Hulk needs to try visiting other military installations for a change.

  Hard to take a guy who's been beaten by a vacuum cleaner seriously as a threat to the Hulk. And what does Trimpe have against eyes? It's been bugging me for a couple of issues now.

  Is anyone up for a no-prize explaining why Sandy turned all green on page 14?

  So,, Sandman decides to pick a fight with the Hulk and attempt to deceive him to his own ends. Such an original idea; it's only been attempted a few times. Heck, it's already been done three times in this arc alone!

I wish I could say that battling Sandman is no day at the beach, but I can't even say that. At this stage in Marvel history, his costume is ridiculous and the loftier schemes without the Frightful Four are out of character. Other than that, going toe-to-toe with someone like the Hulk shouldn't make for a bad story.

2 stars.

  The best part of this was Pg19/P3 in which Hulk hits the Sandman so hard he basically explodes out of his costume. The rest? Not so much.

I get that Stan is trying to set up the breathing thing as an Achilles' heel for the Hulk... but it's falling flat after we saw him breathing and talking in the vacuum of space two issues ago.

I think I figured out what's bugging me about Trimpe's art. In most panels, Hulk just looks tiny. Trimpe either draws tiny panels, or he draws a big one but then draws a tiny Hulk in it. Either way, Hulk's massive frame is just getting lost on these pages!

  There are no eyes there is only Squiiiiiint.....

sorry, I'll never bother you again...

  Sandman's plan to contact Blastaar makes sense (cause Blastaar really is powerful) and would help his criminal career a lot IF Blastaar would team-up with him again....that remains to be seen...

But pitting Sandman against the Hulk directly after he smashed a very powerful cosmic entity seems a bit underwhelming. I like the Sandman, but not in this mag...

Having already seen the cover for the next Issue in the order, I was somehow excited to see how they connect Blastaar from here to X-Men...I am now a little disappointed nothing happened in that direction. Must have just been "Month of Blastaar" in the Bullpen (release date wise)
