    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Jul 21, 2009

    Elsewhere, there's a sense that the bumper-sized issue has been a little padded out. A reprint of the full first issue of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's Hulk: Gray is followed by an extensive Hulk cover gallery, and a ton of advertisements that seem to have been included because there wasn't anything else to fill up the required page count. Compared to this week's exemplary Amazing Spider-Man #600, it's a slight disappointment -- but in its own right, this isn't a bad anniversary issue, even if there's probably not a lot here that will appeal to readers who aren't already enjoying Loeb's Hulk run.

    Where Incredible Hulk #600 should have been a towering testament to Bruce Banner's longevity and appeal, it's mostly just fluff stories pencilled reasonably well. If you're an old-school Hulk fan hoping that issue #600 might signal a juncture where you can begin following the character Rulk-free, sorry. No dice. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Tony Rakittke Jul 23, 2009

    Sensing a trend here? Practically everything happens out of the blue for no apparent reason, other than Loeb wanting it to at that particular moment. He constantly fails to set up these moments in ways that justify their existence, and as a result they come off feeling shallow and self-serving. Remember how I said Urich's goal was to find out who the Red Hulk was? Yeah, well, he suddenly decided not to. “If all you do is focus on the Red Hulk you're going to miss the big picture”, Urich observes. Really? Looking at the solicitation, I thought the Red Hulk was the whole point! This discrepancy suggests that either Loeb deliberately misled his readers into shelling out five bucks for a cocktease, or he is losing the ability to tell cohesive stories that don't rely on shameful misdirections and obnoxious slights of hand. Either way, your buying dollars would be better spent elsewhere. Read Full Review
