Doctor Bruce Banner was one of the nation’s top physicists, and an expert in gamma radiation, when he was drafted into creating a new kind of nuclear weapon called a “gamma bomb.” Just before the device was about to go off, Dr. Banner saw a young man (soon to be known as Rick Jones) driving into the danger area.

I've been a big supporter of the Marvel Essentials line from the beginning. They're bargain volumes with a lot of pages for the price, and have collected a lot of obscure Bronze Age material never reprinted elsewhere.

Many fans balk at the black-and-white Essentials, but since the majority of stories in this book were originally published in B&W, you can feel content that you're reading them as they were intended ...more

Nothing about this book is "essential" by any meaning of the word. In fact, the first nine issues were declared to be "imaginary stories" a few years later, since they played so fast and loose with Marvel Comics continuity. About the only things of any note that came out of this book were establishing that Bruce Banner had been an abused child, and the excellent Moon Knight feature penciled by Bill Sienkiewicz.

The Rampaging Hulk was originally a magazine-sized black-and-white comic, and featured

Great old Hulk stories. I read these in the original magazines a few years ago. This is a great reprint of those stories. Recommended
