Incredible Hulk Epic Collection (2015) – TPB vol. 01 “Man Or Monster?”

Synopsis:

Dr. Robert Bruce Banner may look like a mild-mannered scientist, but after being caught in a gamma-bomb explosion, he became the unstoppable engine of destruction known as the Hulk! Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s atomic update on the Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde paradigm mixed the might of giant monsters with Cold War intrigue and psychological drama. Decades later, it’s a formula that still has readers clamoring for more! For the first time, this Epic Collection follows Hulk’s every adventure: his original series, his time fighting alongside — and against — the Avengers, his first confrontation with the Thing, encounters with Spider-Man and Ant-Man, and a mythic battle with Thor!
