    Hulk #3 is yet another satisfying issue that proves this new approach to the beloved character is unique and enjoyable. Expressive art, strong storytelling, and exploration of serious topics take what could have been a stereotypical grim dark take on superheroes and give it substance. Read Full Review

    The series is clearly a meditation on trauma, PTSD and the struggle to rebuild a life after the unthinkable. Maybe that won't satisfy readers looking for a heavy dose of smashing, but it all makes for a fantastic character study. Read Full Review

    Again, Hulk is a series that's taking the long game before the reveal of Jen Walters transformation. This makes sense as once Jen transforms that's a whole new character we'll need to unpack in multiple ways. The intrigue continues for Jen Walter's journey into uncharted territory. Read Full Review

    I haven't felt touched like this in a good while. Hulk right now even being on issue #3 is not the book you want to sleep on. There isn't a stronger story out there from Marvel that tries to address all the things that can ruin you in the business of being a superhero. Not everything you can bounce back from, and Jen will have one hell of a climb to anything normal. Just losing control of her Hulk is bad enough. Read Full Review

    I always enjoy a character exploration issue. It did take me a moment to catch up with things not having read Civil War II, however if this series continues along its initial set up we may be treated to a deeper engagement with Jen's personality. I would like to see more Hulk myself too. For a series simply named Hulk, it was a little light on Hulk. Read Full Review

    The new Hulk story and the relaunch of the She-Hulk character both continue to simmer and delight in taking their time and letting the comic grow. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Feb 24, 2017

    It's also a more conventional book in terms of layouts from Nico Leon " there's a couple of pages which fit the aesthetic of the book prior, but there's a greater number of recognisable layouts utilised by many artists. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Feb 22, 2017

    Hulk #3 feels like it's being told in the wrong format. While its story and characters are well thought out, its pacing and lack of forward momentum really hurts the story. Being dished out on a monthly basis does this comic no good at all. This is a story that would benefit more in a large graphic novel or regular prose book form where you get to read a lot of it all at once. As such, by itself and as a monthly feature, Hulk is not really worth your time. Unless things kick it up a notch next time, you are better off waiting for a trade collection. Read Full Review
