Issue(s): Hulk #291
(Interesting that there's a piece of paper that says Long Shot hanging on the wall in that second image. Nocenti will eventually write a Longshot mini-series, but that's cover-dated Sept 1985, and this is Jan 1984.)
He's trying to decide what to do about General Ross' alliance with MODOK in the previous arc. After talking it out with Ann Nocenti, he decides to leave it up to Ross to decide whether he can handle being a traitor.
The majority of the book focuses on Ross himself, who is contemplating suicide. There's a retrospective of his career, including scenes from many Hulk comics (no footnotes, but i'll do my best with references below). In the end, he decides against suicide but he does strip off his medals and stripes, presumably resigning from the military.
A good use of the Assistant Editors' Month event to do a more character focused story, although numerous flashbacks feel like filler.

It very well could be a reference to the Longshot limited series; that character went through a LOT of delays(his announced ongoing series never got published).
