    Still, "Skarr" stays true to its roots as a spaceward barbarian story. It's got villagers in peril, it's got dragons, and it's got plenty of burl to go around. I'm just hoping that the stakes are raised as high, eventually, as they were in "Planet Hulk". Read Full Review

    With a main character who is dull at best, Pak has to fall back on his setting to carry the issue. The planet Sakaar was an interesting place during Planet Hulk. For the most part, it still is even after Hulk's departure. Chaos rules the day, and roving bands of warriors now pillage the land and make life miserable for the survivors of Hulk's kingdom. What I found myself frequently wishing for was a greater sense of context. Where is this tale going? Why does Skaar matter? How will this series close the book on the journey begun by Planet Hulk and World War Hulk? None of these questions are addressed enough to satisfy me. As such, Skaar is well on its way to becoming just another Hulk book to flip through every month. Marvel has plenty of those already. Read Full Review

    Overall, Skaar didn't exactly blow my mind, but I did enjoy it for the most part. It really is as though Conan was born in the Marvel universe on an alien planet and I like that concept. This wasn't exactly the strongest way to kick off a new series, but I find myself hooked regardless. Read Full Review

    It has a lot of great concepts and I want to like this story, but it's just rushed along too soon and too many unexplained events, like his "death" or the change in appearance postresurrection. Also, where's the mysterious human the solicits spoke of? Read Full Review
