FEAR ITSELF TIE-IN! Who will be left standing as two of Marvel's Mightiest go head to head? Red Hulk's big brawlin' battle with the hammer-wielding Thing comes to its bone-bashing, fist-smashing, mind-crashing conclusion! It's a fight like nothing ever seen before, and no one walks away unscathed! Even the all-new M.O.D.O.K. may learn a thing or two before it's all over! Written by Hulk's master penman Jeff Parker and drawn by the dynamic Elena Casagrande, this is an issue not to be missed!

    I'm not sure what else to say about this series and story that I haven't already. If you have enver liked the character of the Red Hulk, then I urge you to check out this series before writing him off forever; it really proves that any character can be a good character in the right hands. That being said, this particular issue has so little of him that it might not be the best issue to sway a reader on the character, but it is still worth checking out in its own right to see how event books can, and should, be done.

    With Omegex hopefully starting next issue, I am really loving this recent run on this title. Action, big battles, huge enemies, what more can one ask for? Oh yeah, humor. Try to squeeze some in and this title will be perfect. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joey Esposito Aug 3, 2011

    Elena Casagrande turns in another great round of work here, clearly enjoying the chance to create a massive battle in the streets of New York in the rubble of the Avengers Tower. More impressive is that it's an elongated action scene with M.O.D.O.K. at the center, a character not typically known for his malleable action hero capabilities. Casagrande's lines are precise but expressive, keeping the bold style that's defined Parker's run very much intact. Along for the ride are colorists Bettie Breitweiser and Jim Charalampidis, who have the unenviable task of creating a diverse palette when the entire book takes place surrounded in flames. They succeed, however, and help Casagrande to create a kinetic, fast-paced action book that is underlined by Parker's pristine character development. Read Full Review

    Remember how badass Ross was in the first arc of the book? Looks like this is never going to happen again anymore... This exact issue had almost no Rulk at all, but MODOK is still kinda fine. Consider it his comic book.
