From hell's heart Hulk stab at thee

I saw this while reading Flog! (the Fantagraphics blog) and it tugged at my heartstrings: it's 2 pages from a circa 1979 issue of "The Incredible Hulk" in which the jade giant learns a valuable lesson about...helping beached whales, I guess. I'm sure you'll agree that the panel in which he sees his own rage-fueled visage in the reflection of the helpless whale's eye is graphic storytelling at it's most gripping and powerful.

"If you want to help Whales too, write Greenpeace..."

An interesting alliance indeed.

I never knew Hulk talked so much. You sure that isn't the She Hulk? I thought there was going to be a little Hulk vs. whale action or something, but no, it was just blah blah blah. I never thought I'd say this but, Hulk, shut the hell up, will ya?

You're not by chance related to General "Thunderbolt" Ross, are you?

I didn't know the Hulk didn't like water. Why not?

A good question - maybe because he can't punch it?
