Hulk #129 (1970): Again, the Glob! And 1st appearance of Sam Stearns (The Leader)


Man-Thing is one of those characters I’ve always loved even if most of his comics aren’t all that great.  So I’ve also got a soft spot for his mucky progenitor, The Glob.

We also learn in this issue that The Hulk isn’t the only gamma mutate who can transform.  We meet, briefly, a gentleman named Sam Stearns who later transforms into The Leader.

Creators: Roy Thomas and Herb Trimpe
First appearance: Sam Stearns (Leader’s other identity)
Grade: C.  I wanted to like this more, but I just couldn’t.  It’s an average book.  Frankly, it’s probably below average.
