Hulk: Gray - Jeph Loeb

The incredible team of Loeb and Tim Sale returns to have Bruce Banner retell the first two days of his monstrous alter ego's, Hulk, existence to friend/opponent/psychiatrist Dr. Sampson. Sale's splash pages are gripping, Matt Hollingsworth's colors encapsulate both beauty and terror, and Loeb's story, while not extraordinary, delves into a troubled relationship that Banner/Hulk has avoided, enlightening reader and character alike to a disheartening tragedy.
