Marvel Comics Presents #26 (1989) – The Review

Marvel Comics Presents #26

Fixit is on the job!

Another Fixit story by Purves and David.  This little tale follows Fixit as he arrives to collect some money from a guy who owns a Sea World type amusement park called Maritime or something… anyways, the guy doesn’t have the money for Fixit so he offers up the park.  The Hulk asks why he’d want the fish factory and the guy shows Hulk the Whale show.  Suddenly the whale begins to get out of control – coincidentally this is part of the show that Fixit likes  – but when the rogue whale starts to head for the crowd the Hulk springs into action and beats the whale up and sends it back into the sea.  There the Hulk encounters some fish people who had been controlling the whale – I think… it’s been a while since I read it – but hey, I remember it as being one of the best little Fixit stories in the MCP series.  Grade: B+

Who knew Fixit was a Sea World fan?

Hulk - taking care of business!

Incredible Hulk #347 (1990)

Fixit Purves 

This is the start of Mr. Fixit.  Hulk went missing after Ground Zero.  No one knew where he was.  But that’s because Hulk had found a new life in Las Vegas.  He thought he was rid of Banner, thought that it was just him left – had all the women and respect he could ask for.  Things were really looking up for the Hulk…

Of course, it never stays that way for very long, does it?

This is the beginning of Jeff Purves as the artist on the Hulk, and while it takes him a little while to find his own style in these comics, I think the cover is just great.
