Writer: Doug Moench
Artist: Bob McLeod

Bruce Banner it transported to another dimension. The dimension is called the Myth-Realm and all our myths are real here. Banner initially is confronted by a gnome fighting a dragon. The gnome named Nimbli who speaks in rhymes tosses the sword to Banner who then kills the dragon. The two hop on a pair of centaurs and escape flying demons. They arrive at a castle on a boat. The castle belongs to the wizard Saragon. He brought Banner to the realm to rescue the princess Morgaina from the evil sorcerer Darkshorn. The spell around the castle can only be entered by monsters and they need the Hulk.

So Banner goes off with Nimbli and fights a variety of mythical monsters. When he reaches the castle he takes a potion that changes him into the Hulk. He rescues the princess and defeats the evil Darkshorn. At the end it is revealed that this was a dream. Banner was put under hypnosis by a psychologist to help him come to terms with his dark side.

“All In Color For A Crime!”
Writer: Denny O’Neil
Artist: Howard Chaykin

Dominic Fortune is a flamboyant adventurer in 1937. He is involved in rescuing a fourteen year old boy from a comic book company that’s keeping him prisoner. The company is a front for the Nazis who are using comics for propaganda. Dominic rescues the boy and shuts down the insidious Nazis plan.

This Hulk story was a weird one. It starts right out with Banner being transported to this magical realm. I have to admit that I liked it. It was offbeat and made you want to find out what the hell is going on. The ending made sense and still left the reader wondering if it really was a dream or real.

The articles were OK. Nothing real special but not horrible either.

The new backup feature Dominic Fortune I really didn’t care for. While the concept sounds intriguing it just doesn’t click with me. I do miss Moon Knight.
