Thursday Team-up: ""Hell Is a Very Small Hulk!" by Goodwin, Trimpe, and Severin

Dig it, Groove-ophiles! Between issues 4 and 5 of Ant-Man's series in Marvel Feature, Hank Pym's incredible shrinking alter-ego appeared in Incredible Hulk #154 (May 1972). Strangely enough, the only mention of Ant-Man's series in the entire ish is an editorial aside mentioning that "Hell Is a Very Small Hulk!" takes place "...mere days before the epoch-making events in Marvel Feature #4--the start of Ant-Man's own series!" Soft sell, or what there Stan? Anywho, 'tis a cool little ish with superior art by Herb Trimpe and John Severin, with writer Archie Goodwin shrinking the Hulk down to tiny-size then pitting him (and Ant-Man, natch) up against rats, The Chameleon, and the hordes of Hydra! This one definitely made Young Groove's pulse pound--and it's still a fun fave! Enjoy, baby!

  2. Here we have the ever dependable Herb Trimpe enhanced by John Severin's inks. Too bad he couldn't have inked everything Herb did.
