Steranko Saturdays: Slight Return

OK, so I know Steranko Saturdays are, like, so last year but I couldn't resist posting this image that I found at the wonderful
Rip Jagger's Dojo. It's an adaptation of this cover from the 1968 Incredible Hulk Special, featuring the original Steranko Hulk artwork, not the sanitised version with a new, Marie Severin-drawn head pasted on.
( I hope all that makes some kind of sense! )

This issue of Mighty World Of Marvel was probably where I first encountered Steranko's artwork
( apart from possibly the History Of Comics ads in early '70s comics ) but unfortunately it's no longer in the Glass Walking-Stick's Comic Catacombs.
Gotta hit eBay!

Had this one as a lad. Must track it down again, if I don't still have it. (Sometimes I just can't remember what I've got.) I know I DO have the original U.S. Hulk Annual (#1) from which the cover came.

I remember reading that Hulk / Inhumans story from Hulk Annual #1 in the MWOM reprint. I think I might still have that issue but I don't have the original. Another one to add to the wants list :-)
