This issue was harder to find than I thought it would be – and I was a little surprised to hear the Hulk was in it because he’s not on the cover – no, instead he’s on the back cover – and you can tell by the image it’s the grey Hulk, not just the grey Hulk, but it’s Fixit! And it’s Purves who’s illustrating it! I know people give Purves a lot of guff for his run on the Hulk but I still contend that I think his run is one of my favorites!
The story is a very quick one entitled Risky Business. The story opens with the other Casino/Mob bosses talking about taking out Berengetti new bruiser – the one they call Fixit! They send an army of men who explode into Fixit’s room, destroying it, but Joe easily dispatches them, throwing them out the window. As the rest of the men retreat Mr. B. shows up and pays for Fixit’s new suit and his date with Marlo. Fixit and Marlo go to the other casinos on the strip and threatens them into letting him win at roulette. Not a bad little story – but it also didn’t make a lot of sense… Grade C+
