Hulk Vs. Fin Fang Foom – published by Marvel Publishing, 48 pages and $3.99.

Even during these difficult economic times, I still make the occasional impulse purchase. I did so twice recently while visiting various comics shops in Tulsa.

Hulk vs Fin Fang Foom showcases another previously untold tale in which Marvel’s gamma-irradiated monster battles a creature created in the publisher’s pre-superhero days. The story, by Peter David, pits the creatures against each other in Antarctica, with a global warming research team caught in the middle. (Don’t worry, no political axes to grind, here.) It’s a fun story, with a creepy air, ala John Carpenter’s The Thing, that ends with, you guessed it, another monster slugfest.

Artist Jorge Lucas manages great emotion in his characters, superior detail and a style that is reminiscent of Jack Kirby.

This book also contains a reprinted Marvel classic (Fin Fang Foom’s first appearance in Strange Tales #89) by Stan Lee and the aforementioned Kirby.

Recommended for fans of fun stories you don’t have to think too much about, as well as comics history buffs.
