We haven't read nearly enough Hulk on this show, so we're looking at a couple different stories by Peter David.

First up is the wedding of Rick Jones from issues #417-419, in which Captain America gets very bashful about a bachelor party.

Then we check out The Incredible Hulk: The End, a one shot about the last days of the Hulk's life. We'll tell you why it doesn't feel like a comic book!

And of course, we continue our long read of the Thunderbolts with issue #4 in which they accidentally gain a new member!

Next Time: The Death of Captain America Pt. 2 (Captain America 2004 #31-36)

We're reading some detective comics this week! No, not the Bat. We're reading a lesser known PI published by Renegade Comics in the 80s: Ms. Tree, written by Max Alan Collins with art by Terry Beatty.

We jump into the middle of the book and read issues #18-23 in which Ms. Tree deals with the death of her archnemesis... and kills a ton of people.

We were expecting a little more noir and a little less Punisher.

Then we continue Thunderbolts with issue #3 in which the former Masters of Evil meet the current Masters of Evil!

Next Time: Hulk 417-419 (Rick Jones' Bachelor Party) & Hulk: The End
