    This is the first issue on Bruce Jones' run where I found myself getting a bit annoyed by the rather slow pacing he's adopted, as this issue advances the overall story very little, and there's no underlying element of mystery to hold my attention. Now I'll concede that there's a couple unexpected surprises as we learn Agent Pratt is able to momentarily draw upon Hulk like abilities, and there's an interesting standoff developed in the final pages of this issue. The idea that Banner's unable to transform into the Hulk also a nice way of building up the sense of danger in this material. However to tell the truth there's just too much of this issue where I found myself waiting for the story to get going, and when it does start up there's some silly plot elements that left me a bit unimpressed, such as Agent Pratt's decision to use his gun, after such a big deal is made of his ability to transform into a hulking brute. Still, that last page does leave me eager for the next issue's arrival. Read Full Review
