The Small Lebowski:
Issue(s): Defenders #101
Others visit Dolly in the hospital.
For the Devil-Slayer, it means wandering the streets of New York and doing some soul searching, plus helping out a hippie junkie named Sunshine.
The Hulk and Namor don't really see what the problem is - they won, after all, didn't they? - and they just leave.
This was better than the past epic story. It's too bad DeMatteis couldn't do all epilogues.
Quality Rating: C+
Chronological Placement Considerations: Pushed back in publishing time to make room for Dr. Strange and Hulk solo stories. This takes place soon after Defenders #100. The Hulk leaves very early in issue #101, angry that his friends are not happy with the result of the fight with the devils last issue. Issue #102 also takes place in the aftermath of the Six Fingered Hand story, but it doesn't necessarily immediately follow #101 (and indeed the MCP places Marvel Team-Up #111-112 in between), so i've placed it in a separate entry.
Continuity Insert? N

Inbound References (2): showClea, Devil-Slayer, Dolly Donahue, Dr. Strange, Gargoyle (Defender), Hellcat, Hellstorm, Hulk, Luann Bloom, Nighthawk, Satan, Silver Surfer, Sub-Mariner, Sunshine (Junkie), Valkyrie
You need a tag for Sunshine the junkie it seems with his appearances here and then again in #104 and #110.

Not to be confused with Sunshine from Marvel: The Lost Generation (although this guy could totally be a washed up Captain Hip). Thanks AF.

His real name is Ira Gross (not sure if this is ever stated in the issues, he had a handbook profile in 2011 though).

The story's title also comes from the 1973 John Lennon single and album of the same name. Sorry Mark Drummond, couldn't resist!
