    36 pages of a lineup of great Hulk pencillers. That's enough to make this one worth a nice long look, if not a purchase. The fact that Loeb actually tells a good story, too? Well, crap, this might the best Hulk ever gets. Read Full Review

    This issue does carry a $5 cover charge which is steep in my opinion. You get extra story pages with no additional content like a reprint or sketches. I'm not sure it's worth the cover charge mainly because this issue is a one paragraph recap summary in the next issue. As entertaining as the artwork I found the story to be frustrating at times and led me to wonder what other characters are simply robots. That's not a good thing. I would think this issue is for the die-hards though it provides a good jump on point for new readers. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Zack Freeman Jun 23, 2010

    Back when Norman Osborn returned for the first of many times, Marvel put out a great one-shot detailing the whole Clone Saga from in his journal. This worked just like that worked, giving the reader a "behind the curtain" view of the past couple years of Hulk storylines from the perspective of its mastermind. Despite some points that ran a little too on-the-nose, this was definitely a great character piece and a good "twisted recap" to bring some perspective on World War Hulks now that it's coming to its conclusion.

    I just wish the story was as well thought out as the art. After the explanations are over there's still plenty of head-scratching to be done over the questionable logic involved in Ross becoming the Red Hulk, Betty becoming the Red She Hulk, and all the rest of the nonsense we've had to put up with for months. Even with its “revelations” it's certainly nowhere near good enough to justify the $5 price-tag. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review

    The art is well, the art is actually really good in this book. I like the way Ed McGuinness draws (even if he takes a while to put product out) and using different artists associated with the different Hulk eras to draw those events was a really nice touch. Honestly, not enough to redeem the story, but whatever. It looks like the events of this book and Incredible Hulk will make way for fill-ins next month before concluding in August so look forward to that. Read Full Review
