The Terror of the Toad Men!

Despite being an issue often mocked by fans, I found this one to be an improvement over issue 1.

It’s ridiculous really, but somehow Lee pulls it off to be a decent issue despite its obtuse plotting.

It was probably the case that launching both Fantastic Four and Incredible Hulk as new comics with new characters within a few months of each other wasn't that great of an idea, as t...
