    This is a very good issue of a book that has been dragging for quite some time now. This is not a call, a very popular one these days, for the wrapping up of the mysterious Mr. Blue, or whatever, storyline. That can go on for as long as Jones wants, so long as he fleshes out that skeleton with solid, well-told stories like this one. Well see what happens once this story is complete and Fernandez goes on his merry way. Read Full Review

    Bruce Jones relies a little to much on some rather suspect plot contrivances to move his story forward, but this issue is largely free of the random chance encounters and the lucky coincidences that left me unimpressed with the previous chapters of this crossover, so I have to say that this is easily the strongest chapter yet. Now I'm still bothered by how poorly suited Creel is to play the villain of this arc, as the story has never really explains how this new power came to exist, and the character has undergone a radical personality change that seems to suggest Bruce Jones has never read any of Creel's previous appearances.

I did find myself wondering why Creel didn't make his move when the Hulk was dealing with the police though, as it seemed like the ideal moment to take over the host body h Read Full Review

    I reviewed the last issue of Hulk only a couple of weeks ago. I was pretty unflattering. I like this issue even less. Bruce Jones keeps transferring random thoughts from cocktail napkins to the comic page, whether they make sense or not. Consider the scene where the Hulk launches a police cruiser into another car just a couple of feet from a little girl and when the page turns Banner is just walking away from the scene as though nothing has happened. I thought two pages had been stuck together. Somewhere a Marvel editor is rocking back and forth uncontrollably in his office chair, mumbling to himself, "only two more issues left, just two more."
