    This story is a well-executed and fitting end to an incredible run. If not for a noticeable unevenness in the face time given to the supporting characters and one or two other minor blemishes, this one might have challenged perfection. Read Full Review

    It adds up to a great "final" issue, and leaves the next creative team with a tough act to follow. Read Full Review

    Admittedly, I would not have been anywhere near as interested in this story had Pak not brought Hercules into the title and Marvel not used the brilliant artwork of Paul Pelletier. Thankfully, both of those things happened, and this book is the better for it. Pak and Pelletier provided some benchmark stories for the Hulk and for us readers, and there is nothing to keep any of us from coming back to this one time and again. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Sara McDonald Sep 2, 2011

    The answer is plain: the Hulk and Bruce Banner are not two separate beings. If anything, the "true" face is the Hulk, the embodiment of the part of human nature that we try to suppress but cant always succeed in doing so. Bruce is the Hulk, a point Pak hammers home as we see that Bruce doesnt truly wish to be rid of the Hulk, but wishes to be the Hulk. Furthermore, as the plot of A.I.M. Supreme Scientist Monica Rapaccini and her Wishing Well comes to a close, no ones true wish appears to be without their "hulk" selves, but rather a blending of the two -- the ability to change from "hulk" to human and back again at will, without the loss of either side.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Sep 1, 2011

    The main story is a wonderful capstone on a great run on Hulk for Greg Pak. Hopefully Marvel will give this the Omnibus treatment someday and also get the entire run available digitally, because these are stories that have the potential to be evergreen. Jason Aaron has some big shoes to fill. Read Full Review

    Is it weird to say that the interview alone is worth the $3.99 price tag? This issue is a great wrap-up to an amazing 5 year run on Incredible Hulk. The storyline itself was just ok for me, but the ending is what really made this a great issue. The elements Pak has created over the years are still in play. No "reset" button was hit so a new writer could have their way with the Hulk-iverse, but enough was wrapped-up where the reader doesn't have lingering questions. I highly recommend this issue.
