From Comics to Toons: Incredible Hulk vs. Quasimodo (When Monsters Meet, 1982)

As they did a year earlier with the series premiere of Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends, Marvel Comics chose to adapt an episode of their house-produced Incredible Hulk series into a 1-shot comic book. Unfortunately, the book is an edited adaptation.

"When Monsters Meet" pits Hulk (Bob Holt) against a modern day descendant of Quasimodo. The subplot has Betty Ross playing secret agent to meet with the French Minister of Finance, unwittingly walking into Quasimodo's trap, and that has Bruce Banner (Michael Bell) worried. Well,  you know what happens........

I read the book, watched the show. Most unimpressed.

Rating: C+.
