    Hell yes,Planet Hulkis a gem shining brightly amongst many other fantasticSecret Warsbooks. Hell yes, Sam Humphries is the real deal andhell yes,this is one of the best art teams that Marvel has had in recent memory and, hey, if you look back at all the greats and soon to be greats, there might not be a higher compliment (or reason for you to pick this up) than that. Soak up all the brutal goodness while you can, folks, becauseSecret Warsis half over next week andPlanet Hulkwont be around forever. Read Full Review

    All in all Planet Hulk #2 was a fun read. I suggest checking this comic out if you haven't done that already because it's proving to be one of the better Secret Wars tie ins. Read Full Review

    There's a great sense of adventure in PLANET HULK that we don't get to see in a lot of comics, which hearken back to adventure films of the past. There's a lot to love about this issue, including the gorgeous art and the fact this story really stands on its own merits and doesn't rely heavily on what's going on in the main SECRET WARS book. The only downside is that there isn't too much going on in the issue. I have a feeling it's something that will read much better in trade rather than as a stand alone. Overall, I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    "Planet Hulk" #2 takes a moment to stand up, dust itself off and try to gather its bearings. Humphries, Laming, Boyd and Lanham give readers plenty to absorb in this issue but intelligently provide the opportunity to absorb that info just a little more deliberately. There's still plenty of action in this issue, but there is a little bit more order to the plot, as the quest begins to solidify and the threats lurking in the brush take shape. The concept of Captain America and Devil Dinosaur teaming up set this series in motion, and the work from this creative team lives up to expectations, providing one of the most entertaining reads of the "Secret Wars" experience.

    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough Jun 26, 2015

    Laming does a great job of capturing the scale of his world, his characters look very big, perfect for the types of Hulk he has to draw. Thankfully he also manages to walk the difficult balances between making things look big and nicely hulky without making it seems cringe-worthy or like something from the 90s. The only downside to this is the flashback section of the book, showing Steve and Bucky before the Gamma bomb. While the flashback offers some interesting hints to this Steves different origin, the art doesnt do a great job of depicting him or Bucky. Steve says that theyre supposed to be beanpoles but the two look incredibly well in shape with the usual comic square jaws. Again, its nothing to sever, just a strange scene that made me double take while reading the comic, the arts strengths more than outweigh this however. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Jun 24, 2015

    There is not a whole lot of substance in this issue, but neither does there have to be. Coincidentally this issue comes out around the same time as Jurassic World has been released into theaters, and the comparison is maybe apt as both have a tyrannosaurus rex in a fight with another beast. That is to say that it is fun if not particularly deep as a concept, something which is a treat for the eyes if not so much for the brain. Read Full Review

    Secret Wars Planet Hulk #2 was a solid read. It would have been nicer if Humphries had delivered a more compressed read. But, this issue was still entertaining and worth the price of admission. This Secret Wars tie-in title does make me realize one thing. That Marvel needs to publish an ongoing title chronicling the adventures of Battleworld Captain America and Devil Dinosaur once Secret Wars has concluded! Read Full Review
