    I'd recommend the Incredible Hulk Visionaries Peter David series, which collects stuff from his first Hulk run in the 80s-90s. Also his Hulk The End story is pretty good. Other than that...um, there's Bruce Jones' run, some people like that but it doesn't really have the Hulk in it that much and the ending is screwy. I'd say Planet Hulk but you seem to have that covered. That's about all I can recommend for Hulk stories.

    Oh wait, and hulk Future Imperfect. Although I forget if that was ever reprinted or not.

    The Essentials are usually pretty cheap if they still make them. They're black and white but a cheap read. Not sure if they reprinted the Dogs of War storyline or not, it was pretty good. Here's another good read:

    Not part of a collection as such, but if you can find Hulk #300, that has the Hulk just beating the living bejesus out of the rest of the Marvel Universe. And isn't that how it should be?

    As far as collections go, Rampaging Hulk was just collected, and while one of the more offbeat Hulk-related things, and technically not canonical, it is drawn by Walter Simonson, and is, as such, awesome.

    Also, there was a damn good series called "Banner", done by Brian Azzerello (I misspelled that, I know and I'm sorry), and Richard Corben (who rocks) that was really entertaining. A darker take on the Hulk, but still just friggin' awesome.

    Yeah, what this guy said. Something to keep in mind though, is that The End and Future Imperfect is in the same trade (at least, the last one I saw), so make sure you don't buy it twice.

    I personally liked Bruce Jones' run on the Hulk. Its just that the end is really rushed because he either left or was removed before he could finish fleshing it all out. Its pretty much an opposite of Planet Hulk though, with Bruce on the run and all kinds of conspiracies going on around him and various others related to the Hulk. If nothing else the covers for most of his run were some of the best ever, imo.

    Sort of a side note, but Hulk related:

    I'm playing the Hulk game for 360. I unlocked Classic Hulk. He looks just like the Hulk off the Secret Wars TPB. Playing as him, I want to see him lift a mountain!

    The first trade of Bruce Jones run, with Romita Jr on art is actually really good. The story and art go waaaaay down after that though, and the end is really bizarre.
