    It is so rare in today's comic market to know that a comic is going to be good before you open it, but Jeff Parker has taken Hulk to that level. He's been on this title since issue #25 and every issue has been between strong and outstanding and when Hardman is on the title too, it just goes to another level. Can't wait until next issue to see what happens with this interesting cast of characters. Read Full Review

    Hardman continues to bring his cinematic, definitive style to the pages of Hulk, creating a very interesting atmosphere for this issue in particular. Much of the book is big on action, but it constantly plays second fiddle to the ongoing discussion between the usually perhipheral characters. Still, Hardman laces his panels with action even if its only in the background. More interestingly, he gets to go a bit off reservation due to the fancy time-phasing I mentioned earlier, which offers up some more variety in page construction and a chance to change things up a bit for colorists Betttie Breitweiser and Jim Charalampidis. Letterer Ed Dukeshire shouldn't go unnoticed either, as he deftly navigates the craziness of Hardman's layouts to accomidate all of Parker's wordy script in an easy-to-read manner. Read Full Review

    The art was great once again. I really like this blandish simple style. Let the lines tell the story and define the action. No big bold splashy art to overpower your senses. There was a bit too much white though. Still, a pretty good issue. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Sara McDonald Sep 16, 2011

    Hulk #40 was a fairly solid progression of the Omegex story arc. It filled the reader in on just what the Omegex is and how it came to be fighting Red Hulk and provided set up for what's to come in the rest of the arc. However, it also felt a little too heavy on exposition in parts. Read Full Review
