THE HULK ANNUAL #11 (Oct 1982)
Marvel Comics
I read something interesting in an old issue of Comic Reader #154. In the Marvel news section Mary Jo Duffy was writing a Doc Samson story for Marvel Premiere with George Perez and Frank Miller. Now that would have been pretty cool if it would have happened.

Rubén answered: It kinda did happen, but without Pérez. Both styles would have clashed terribly and one would have dominated the other, so it wasn't a great loss as far as I'm concerned. The 5 page story Duffy ended up writing was about Doc Samson and Unus the Untouchable. It was Frank Miller's first story drawn for Marvel, and was ultimately inked by Steve Mitchel and published as a back-up story in Hulk Annual #11 in 1982.
