Putting Strange Tales to one side (a wise thing to do with any issue of Strange Tales!), we're back to the Thing/Hulk fight. It's round 2 of this battle, round 4 in total, and it's a rather lovely splash page as well.

I'm hesitant to call this round for The Thing, as he really only wins when he's got the rest of the Fantastic Four, the entirety of the Avengers, and Rick Jones popping pills, helping him. But the Hulk ends this issue defeated, and the heroes survive, which makes it a victory, of sorts, for Ben Grimm.

As with the previous issue, I'll devote a few pages to the best Hulk/Thing moments from this battle.
