    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Jul 31, 2013

    On the surface, the premise seems pretty complex, but Waid simplifies it and clearly turns it into something hilarious and super entertaining. The ending is a real attention grabber and I can't wait to see all of the crazy fun Waid is going to have with this story. If you previously told me AGE OF ULTRON was going to take over numerous titles I would be pretty bummed out. However, Waid manages to spin a negative into a positive and it totally works. Thrown in Scalera's brilliant illustrations and you have yet another issue of INDESTRUCTIBLE HULK which is beyond worthy of five-stars. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Aug 5, 2013

    Waid is writing a Hulk book that is both intelligent and action packed. He's bringing big ideas to this series that's generating all types of stories not seen in Hulk books before. This is a great jumping on point for any readers who have yet to give this series a try. It's one of Marvel's best books going. Read Full Review

    Imagination Centre - John McCubbin Sep 11, 2013

    This was a fantastic issue, and one of the best in a while. It had some amazing action, as well as some suspenseful, and dramatic dialogue, all of which gave great tone, and depth to the issue. It also perfectly set-up this new story, and has me very interested in what will come next. This all makes it extremely easy to recommend this issue, as it's the perfect jumping on point for new readers, as although I'd also recommend the rest of the series, you can easily begin reading from this issue.

    Analog Addiction - Tony Couto Aug 5, 2013

    Complex, but delivered in an incredibly engaging manner, Indestructible Hulk #11 is the template for a “part one” done right. While a great issue in its own right, it makes me wish I could find a rift in time to get to the next installment right away. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Jul 31, 2013

    Matteo Scalera is on art again and does some great work in this issue. His characters look great and there is a moody, frantic look to nearly every page. As with previous issues, some of the action can be a bit difficult to follow, but the good far outweighs the bad. The real champion in this issue is Val Staples, who produces some glorious color work. The first few pages are mesmerizing, and it's largely due to Staples' incredible coloring. Indestructible Hulk is one hell of a comic book series and something that fans of the big green brute should worship. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Michael Bowie Aug 4, 2013

    So, despite my initial fears, and despite a large portion of this issue bing exposition to get Hulk into time travel mode (don't worry there's definitely a "Hulk Smash!" Moment or two), this really is a worthwhile read, if you can handle all the timestream talk. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Aug 1, 2013

    The biggest problem with "Indestructible Hulk" #11 is that just when the story really gets rolling and the action begins a steady ascent, it's the end of the issue. Waid does provide some early issue action, but builds up the new direction quite extensively in the latter half of the book. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that. I'd rather have stories built on solid foundation, but I'd truly prefer to have more of Waid's Hulk now. Not surprisingly, "Indestructible Hulk" has become one of the titles I look forward to the most every month from Marvel as Mark Waid continues to reward readers with surprises and solid storytelling.

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Aug 2, 2013

    The notion of S.H.I.E.L.D. having a super-secret, temporal-crisis division is laughable, cool and entertainingly campy all at once. Writer Mark Waid achieves a balance between Silver Age goofiness and a modern intensity in this story that could have fallen flat but somehow works nicely. He addresses the reckless notion of sending the Hulk through time logically in the plot, having the hero refuse the mission out of concern only to accept it out of emotion. This first part of the story arc mainly sets up the premise. The final page points to the fun to come, juxtaposing disparate time-travel elements. I have to admit, while I thought Age of Ultron was a poorly executed story, some stories that have spun off from it (such as this one and Hunger) have been entertaining. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Simon Fitzgerald Aug 2, 2013

    Despite the less than stellar art and the fact that a lot of the book is exposition, it's still immensely enjoyable. The use of Banner's “Work Diary” in place of a standard first-person narrative works brilliantly well and Waid has some great fun with the changes in time that are happening all around the present. As a stand-alone issue, it won't rank as a classic, but it is a sign of some great things to come and the prospect of the ability to change The Hulk's mood and intelligence and origin on a whim holds great promise.
