This comic is the third appearance ever of Wolverine. The first pages conclude the story that started in #180 where Hulk was facing off against Wendigo and the Canadian government sent in Wolverine to get the situation under control. Unfortunately, for Wolverine, he failed and they took him out of there by helicopter. In this issue you get to meet Cracka-Jack Johnson (I love that name!) a gentle old man who takes the Hulk in and shows him kindness. You also get to meet his son – “Hammer” Jackson, who has just escaped from prison and is chained to Johnny Anvil. The two happen by an alien who they inadvertently save and the alien gives them super-powers that work through the chain that they are connected by.
This issue is chock full of greatness, not only was it drawn by the great Herb Trimpe, but it has Wolverine (if you’re into that sort of thing), and even a great story, where Cracka-Jack Johnson eventually dies. And for the first time Hulk is distraught over losing a friend. Also, as an added bonus – Hulk learns to write!!!!
