The Small Lebowski:
Issue(s): Hulk #218
Roger Stern is just scripting so far, but this begins his run on the Hulk.
For an interesting change of pace, we get a Doc Samson solo story, since the Hulk is presumed dead after a fall from the SHIELD helicarrier (although in fact he is terrorizing fisherman with archaic speaking patterns).
The Rhino sabotages a train in order to retrieve a package. Samson hunts him down and defeats him as much by getting under his skin psychologically as with his super-strength.
Rhino is working for someone, but we don't find out who it is this issue.
Too Big, Too Fast Alert:: Doc Samson says "I hate to coin a cliche -- but I never expected anyone that big to move that fast!".
Quality Rating: C+
Chronological Placement Considerations: The Hulk is still presumed to be dead, as of Hulk #216.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
The title refers to a 1970s film "The (something I can't remember) Doesn't Stop Here Anymore".

Do we ever find out weho the Rhino is working for? Or what the package is?

I don't think so, William. It might have been intended to the be Leader, who shows up soon. Or something might have gotten lost in the transition between Len Wein and Roger Stern's run.

With all due respect to Mark, I think the title refers to the somewhat obscure 1963 Tennessee Williams play THE MILK TRAIN DOESN'T STOP HERE ANYMORE. (It was disastrously filmed by Joseph Losey in 1968 as BOOM!, with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.) He may be conflating that with Martin Scorsese's 1974 film ALICE DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE, the basis for the popular sitcom ALICE.
