Joe Fixit #1

For those that don't remember, there was a time back in the 1980s where the Hulk was grey... and a mob enforcer for a casino in Las Vegas. Decades later, Peter David returns to this version of the Hulk, lumbering around in tailored suits on a casino floor and in back alleys of Vegas, and also throws in both Spider-Man and the Kingpin for the first issue of Joe Fixit as well.

Your enjoyment of the issue is likely going to be somewhat tempered by your nostalgia of David's previous run with the character. If you are hitting this version for the first time it likely won't have the impact of longtime Hulk fans. However, even if you didn't bring your rose-colored 80s glasses, there's plenty to enjoy here as we, like Spidey, get to sit back and watch Mister Fixit totally dominate the Kingpin and send him angrily packing.
