Brilliant. I have not red the original and now, i newer will want to do it either. Thank you Proto, you saved my tedious day.

Honestly, that has to be the ugliest Thing and Hulk ever.

Isn't this the original? I thought this was just a reprint and was waiting for a clever caption after...

Is this the Marvel Zombies twist on Hulk vs The Thing?

It's a little gay.

Is this supposed to take place like a hundred years in the future where the Hulk and the Thing are in their twilight years? They both look wrinkled and haggard enough to be pushing 90. It was like watching a scene from Brokeback Mountain if the main characters would have been played by Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau.
Just this guy, you know?

Very well done sir. I like what I see and I wish to subscribe to your news letter forthwith.

Seriously, what is up with Hulks "hair-line"?

I love how Jae Lee is too lazy to make the Thing look like he is made of stone. I suppose thinks that drawing squiggle lines on him will suffice.

PS: Hulk sitting on two bar stools at the end looks ridiculous.

Thanks guys. I'm afraid I couldn't resist "making everyone gay" in this Protocomic. It's been a while since I've done that, after all, and this comic was screaming for it.

Now to see the Goddamned Batman gaying around... Not!!!

Even though the artist clearly bet money he could draw a comic with his feet, your brilliant rewrite has made it worthwhile.

The Hulk and the Thing must be gay. I mean, with shorts THAT small.

Funny I always thought it was the Human Torch who was secretly gay, what with the whole "Flame ON!" thing.
