    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze May 31, 2017

    ‘Deconstructed' has been a great first story arc for Hulk. I figured that there would be more to this book than simply Jen anchored down by past events. This creative team made a solid effort to forge a new path for Jen and find a new strength in her that I don't think she has displayed before. Read Full Review

    Overall, Tamaki continues to create an important emotional dialogue with Hulk #6 as Jen Walters starts to figure out what type of hero she wants to be, embracing the consequences of her trauma. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Jun 1, 2017

    We get a pretty good fight through this issue with a resolution that is kinda fucked up to an extent. We're one arc down with an unsure path of the direction Walters will be headed in next. Hopefully, we'll be exploring more of the Grey Hulk form as well as perhaps seeing Walters converse with this form on a subconscious level. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 1, 2017

    This series continues to show plenty of promise, but it needs a tighter approach to pacing and a willingness to stay mired in darkness as long as Jen's character arc demands it. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jun 3, 2017

    The new Hulk's first story arc ends in asolid, entertaining execution, introducing us to the new, feral She-Hulk. It's also hopefully setting up the continued build of this excellent, psychological thriller. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Alex Henning Jun 10, 2017

    If there's any real takeaway here, it's that the book may not yet know how to juggle both things it wants to do, but it has the makings of a great book when it does figure things out. The art is decent and standard for Marvel at this point, if a bit too cartoony in some places, but otherwise, it's a decent issue. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Dan Clark Jun 6, 2017

    Anytime you are able to approach such a classic character in a new way I am all for it. Civil War II was quite the disappointment but in that some good did come. Hulks first arc may not have had the thrilling or satisfying conclusion it was capable of achieving, but it was no means a total loss. Much of the dramatic dilemmas that were forged in the beginning are still there and clearly have much better fruit to bear. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards May 31, 2017

    Hulk #6 dropped the ball. The story is a letdown due to how rushed and anti-climactic it feels after all the buildup this entire arc, while the big climax everyone was waiting for no longer fits due to the storytelling and writing either. The character arcs feel rushed, and the art dipped considerably. After all of this buildup and waiting, I can't recommend sticking with Hulk for the time being. Read Full Review
