The Hulk has clashed with Man-Thing on several occasions, but this Hulk #197 (in 1975) was their first meeting, What's extra-special about this team-up is the cover by Berni Wrightson. Wrightson was strictly a DC artist from the beginning of his career, and this was the first time I had ever seen him do Marvel work. Wrightson's best known creation, Swamp Thing, was co-created with Len Wein, the writer/editor behind this issue of the Hulk. It was interesting to see Wrightson's take on Marvel's muck-monster, but I really like Wrightson's depiction of the Hulk. Years later, Wrightson would team with Jim Starlin on a Marvel Graphic Novel featuring the Hulk and the Thing.
The interior art was by Sal Buscema and Joe Staton. After googling for Hulk 197, I found this cover recreation by Our Pal Sal on Eelco's Original Comic Art Gallery. Go check out the rest of his collection! Nuff said.
