So this one time a dirty magazine publisher got inappropriate pics of a sunbathing She-Hulk, and the guy was totally Stan Lee.

All you have to do is add your own mustache!

So this bit of creative casting on John Byrne's part was done more tongue-in-cheek than those issues where he poked fun at Neal Adams for the expanding earth thing, but still... that's a little weird. And between this and that issue of Action Comics where Superman and Big Barda are coerced into making a gentleman's special interest film, Byrne taught the youth of America a whole lot about the adult entertainment industry (like how it's generally based in the San Fernando Valley and Apokolips, for instance).

Excelsior, kids!

This is one of my all-time favorite issues of Byrne's FF. I actually talk about the issue in Deus ex Comica, and it features prominently in my author talks/selected readings presentation that I do about my book. Great issue!

Talking about this comic once still gets me a dozen hits a day from googlers looking for She-Hulk porn.

Don't get me wrong, I love this issue, too. Byrne did so much to change She-Hulk from "created to nail down a trademark" into an actual character, and this story is among my favorites from his entire FF run. I just think it's funny/wrong to see Stan cast as the magazine guy. And the fact that Byrne went to the superpr0n well more than once.
