"The Battle Cry of the Boomerang" — It's plot-counterplot this issue, as the Hulk returns to the surface, where he is attacked by the US Army, which is looking for Boomerang, who has kidnapped General Ross's daughter on the orders of The Secret Empire, whose members are busily murdering one another whilst watching proceedings on a view screen, classic supervillain style. Jack Kirby is listed as "designer" in the credits, meaning that although he didn't have time to actually pencil the comic, Stan wanted his story ideas. He threw the kitchen sink at this one (but Boomerang still looks rubbish). GOOD.
