    At this point the only things keeping Incredible Hercules from ranking as the best book of the week are the unfortunately-timed Immortal Iron Fist and the slightly underwhelming pencils of Khoi Pham. I don't want to be too hard on Pham. This is some of the best work I've seen from the artist so far. Still, it doesn't quite measure up to what we're seeing in some of the other Aftersmash books. If only Ed McGuinness were drawing this series instead of Hulk. I think I'd be in comic book heaven. Read Full Review

    Khoi Pham's art is to die for. I think this is my first encounter with his art (if I've seen it before, I've not really noticed), but his art on the flashback sequences is amazing. When Hercules goes nuts, his facial expressions are simultaneously funny and psychotic. This book is a pleasant surprise. Read Full Review

    Paul: So to sum up, this is well worth the time and money. Its a step up in quality from the already high quality Incredible Hulk run Pak has been responsible for and the art is very nice. The mythological elements of Hercules character are playing a central part and are serving to make him a much more nuanced and interesting character than hes ever been. Amadeus Cho continues to be entertaining with his determination and grit. And even Ares is being utilized much more effectively than he has been over in Mighty Avengers. I recommend this highly. It is, without a doubt, one of the best books Marvel is putting out at the moment. Read Full Review

    The title of this book (for now) is Incredible Hercules. It's not Rock Me Amadeus, it's not Herc & His Athenian Friends. I think for the length of Herc's tenure as the star, the writers would do well to keep him as the center square with more of a focus on the mythology, similar to J. Michael Straczynski's Thor relaunch. The "Aftersmash" effects and ultimate goal can still remain intact (because, let's face it, this isn't going to stay a Hercules title forever), but it can at least be fun along the way.
