Are you a new Hulk fan or possibly an old fan who has fallen out of touch with the character? Well I advise you to check out goodreads.com. It is a site dedicated to people who love books of all kinds. This includes comic books. They have assembled, by reader votes, a pretty accurate list of the best Hulk stories ever (well 78 stories to be exact).
The list does seem to sit in favor of the more recent books. Planet Hulk and World War Hulk are unsurprisingly holding strong at the top of this list. So if you think the older comics are not being represented I would understand that.
Still I recommend you peruse the list to see if there is a great story you may have missed. http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/16971.Best_of_the_Hulk
