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. Sure, the central villains are evil toad men… sure… but central to this outing’s appeal for me is a mixture of Steve Ditko’s only appearance in the series as Hulk’s inker making for a much more striking issue visually, and of course the whacky antics of seeing Hulk kick toad ass in space. It’s ridiculous really, but somehow Lee pulls it off to be a decent issue despite its obtuse plotting.
