The reprint story is first rate. I don't recall ever having read it, so it was a fresh read. It co-stars the Angel and the Ice-Man from their Champions days. They enlist the Hulk's aid against a Sentinel, go into space, and generally sit back while the Hulk gets in his licks. This is a fun read if you like action packed, self-contained stories. It's also a chance to enjoy John Byrne on a character with whom he's not ordinarily associated. Read Full Review
I think my ire is really coming from the fact that... this book doesn't need to exist. I understand that ongoing books can struggle to put out consistent content month after month. It happens. But to me a one-shot needs to justify its existence. And yet, here we are. Also, I was rather expecting this to be some sort of entry point for the movie-goers (about a month too early, but that would at least justify the special). Don't bother. There are a hundred better options out there such as the Essentials line or anything collecting Peter David's run. Honestly I could only recommend this as a cruel prank to keep people from enjoying the Hulk. Or use it to sedate a small child. I think that'll be its most effective use. Read Full Review
