Tales to Astonish #60 marks a major change in the series format. From issue #35 through #59, Hank Pym (a.k.a. "Ant-Man" and then "Giant-Man") was the series star, featured on covers and in the main story in each issue. With issue #60, the series begins a split format that will continue until the series end (#101): The series continued featuring Giant-Man in on story, and begin a second feature starring the Incredible Hulk.

The Hulk continued to be the star of one of the featured stories in each split-format issue throughout the rest of the series. Giant-Man continued as the co-feature only through issue #69. The Sub-Mariner took over his co-feature spot beginning with issue #70.
