Giant-Size Incredible Hulk #1

Post by Paul Bourcier » Tue May 20, 2008 7:12 am

Does anyone care to take a stab at placing the main story in last week's Giant-Size Incredible Hulk #1 and any flashback panels therein that contain new material?

Well, even the present-day segments are too early for your current calendar, occurring as they do before H3 #8, it seems...

RS: Ah, you remembered! Yes, that book is the one he's researching in my story.

Yes, Newsarama remembered.

Either that, or they checked the Project.

Further:
Roger Stern wrote:If you want a spot in time to place the story, it's pretty much contemporaneous with the end of my run on the Hulk...just before Fred interviews Betty Ross for his book. [Remember, this is the same book -- Hulk Encounter: A Survivor's Story -- that Fred speaks about in the past tense in HULK Volume III #8.]

Having done a little more checking, I suppose this story should occur after Fred Sloan's appearance in H2 256. Given the Hulk's globe-trotting at this point in time, we'd have to wait until H2 261 for the Hulk to be back in the U.S., and in southern California at that. How about placement between the first and second stories in H2 261?

Then there are all those flashbacks in GSIH 1. Does anyone know what is new material in these flashbacks?
