Everybody needs a good pirate story. And if you can’t have a good one, you can at least have a so-so one. Hulk fights Captain Barracuda and gets stranded on a desert island where he meets Robinson Crusoe. And Barracuda does the classic comedy move of looking through the periscope with his eyepatched eye.
It’s a very strange couple of issues. Especially odd is that Marvel has an editorial cross-reference to Marvel Classics #19, which is their comic book retelling of the classic novel, Robinson Crusoe.
Turns out, it’s not the “real” fictional character, it’s just a weirdo who took on the identity because he’s been alone with coconuts for too long. And he wants Hulk to be his boy Friday.
Oh, and there’s a girl.
None of this is anything like episode #220 of the TV Hulk starring Bill Bixby. In that episode, he beat up a laundromat.
