    I have to say, this issue was incredible, more for the idea of the radiation changing banner's mind than any of the action going on around the town. The mystery of who is behind it all is there, and yes, as any reader would, I want to know. But the correct direction here is all Bruce Banner. I get the feeling that something big is going to change with his character, his powers, and the nature of the Hulk himself. I can't wait for next month's issue, because Hulk will be delivering a star-spangled beat down. Read Full Review

    It was recently announced that Mark Waid's time writing "Hulk" would end with the currant arc. Although the series has flown under the radar, it seems like Waid and the always stellar Mark Bagley are readying a thrilling conclusion. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Bryan Huth May 22, 2014

    Hulk #3 is a solid issue that doesn't progress the story a whole lot or answer a lot of questions, but is definitely worth the time and money just for the action and the surprise appearance of some classic Avengers. That being said, the last page definitely leaves you excited for the next installment in the series. Stay tuned to We The Nerdy for more Marvel news and reviews. Read Full Review

    That is not to say that issue #3 is not a good issue, however. Things start to look up a bit for Banner, and the Hulk's battles with the reanimated corpse of Abomination are rendered magnificently by Bagley. But it is telling that the best scenes are not ones that involve the Hulk or Banner. The issue is, instead, carried along by S.H.I.E.L.D. director Maria Hill and the visiting Avengers. (Despite the cover by Jerome Opena and Dean White, Hawkeye is not one of the guest stars. Nor does Hulk wear his Hulk armor. But I suppose mistakes like that happen, especially when a book is in transition.) The final panel is also pretty great. But, once again, we are left with a Hulk book in which the guest stars, villains, and supporting cast are more interesting than the main characters. Here's hoping that Duggan will remedy the situation by following up on Waid's rehabilitation of Banner in the Indestructible Hulk while imbuing his alter-ego with a bit more personality as well.

    “Hulk #3″ gets just a little bit right, but the rest needs to improve. Somewhere in this book is a good story, but so far it hasn't come out to play. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall May 27, 2014

    The Bottom Line:Once again, the extended fight scene is brilliantly rendered and can be a good reason to pick up the book. Unfortunately, the heightened role of SHIELD/Maria Hill and the slow burn of the antagonist suffers in comparison,failing to elicit the same resonance as a reader, and giving a good reason to gloss over it.
