    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Jan 3, 2019

    I haven't been this captivated by a Marvel series like this since Jason Aaron's Thor run. Ewing evokes the same kind of style, expanding upon the concept of the Hulk and the themes that are associated with this character while bringing the Hulk into new territory. Eleven issues in, I can definitely tell you that The Immortal Hulk is a must read for those who want to see the Hulk like never before. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jan 13, 2019

    The Immortal Hulk sets a high bar for horror in super hero comics. It shows how expertly the genre can be weaved into the world of capes and tights. This is simultaneously adding to a long-established character and scaring the crap out of me. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Aaron Berkowitz Jan 2, 2019

    THE IMMORTAL HULK #11 proves why this book was one of the best books of 2018. Ewing goes above-and-beyond to craft a story that includes both superhero action and deep questions about God and Hell. This book is instantly memorable. It should go down as one of the best issues of the year, and it's only the first week of January. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Jan 2, 2019

    After all is said and done, this may not have been the most exciting issue of the series, but it had some powerful character moments, and you can tell that Ewing is heading somewhere big with the story. The only worry is that he seems to be wrapping it up with the reveals of the big bads plans and Hulk literally being dumped into Hell to, presumably, face him head-on. Hopefully, Ewing has many more stories to tell, though, because this is the best the big, green guy has been written in years. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Alexander Williamson Jan 3, 2019

    Ewing and Bennett present an awe-inspiring vision of Hell and a gut-churning depiction of the Hulk, combined with beautifully written narration, in one of the consistently best comics being published right now. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicolas Duncan Jan 12, 2019

    The artwork by Joe Bennent and Ruy Jose are incredibly grotesque in his depictions of the Hulk and each hollow shell character. He creates a magnificent and chilling version of Hell. The page where Hulk tears a certain someone into pieces, Bennents art will make your stomach churn. Paul Mounts coloring skills excels in this issue as he switches between black and white to the modern-old school horror elements that perfectly accentuates the various apocalyptic and symbolic energy of the imagination.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jan 2, 2019

    Immortal Hulk #11 got my head turning in the best way. I did not think one of the most engaging issues would come of a trip to Hell. Not like this, and that is what continues to make this series so standout. It's not about the scare tactics or the things you do for shock, it is the way you set a stage and embrace everything out of the ordinary in the Hulk's orbit. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Jan 7, 2019

    This issue ended up being a split one for me. I really liked the stuff we got with the Hulk, Jackie, Creel and more, but hated the faux-philosophical ramblings that filled the other half. I still want answers to the lingering questions in this series, but it seems like Al Ewing was more concerned with showing us how deep he is than addressing those. The art continues to be great, but I am starting to get impatient with this book. Read Full Review

    THE GOOD:

    -Wow, those black and white pages were ominous, cryptic and super well scripted.

    -I love the depiction of hell in this issue, especially as it is illustrated by Joe Bennett.

    -Joe Bennett's pencils have so much more character in this comic than they did in many of his previous series. I really love the art here.

    -Jackie and Hulk's conversation was pretty amazing. It was super well-written, was a great examination of the character and gave me a new appreciation for Jackie.

    -Wow, that Rick Jones depiction was just so good.

    -I also found Puck to be extremely well characterized in this issue.

    -Ewing still gives us our body horror satisfaction with this i more

    "It won't work that way"

    Well, this all just went to Hell. Literally. And it is good. So good in fact that it's not even funny.

    Hulk and Ms. McGee are taking a stroll Below while having an interesting existential talk about anger. It's really good and things get creepy and pretty violent later on.
    Somewhere else, Eugene Judd a.k.a Puck is winning me over as the coolest and most badass "dwarf" in comics.

    The art is just something else. The creepy and unnerving image complements story in the best possible way. And weak, skinny looking Hulk with hanging skin fits great into the wasteland-like imagery of Hell.

    Best comic book out there. Well, except when Doomsday Clock is around, it's second b more

    The only person shown to dismiss Jackie's anger is The Hulk, in IMMORTAL HULK # 5...with the most stinging rebuke possible from the person responsible for destroying her old neighborhood: "Just...go home, McGee. Go home."

    The conversation between Jackie and The Hulk is much more personal than a lot of people realize, not really a civil rights manifesto. Her childhood home was destroyed. Her neighbor's house was destroyed. Her neighbor's neighbor's house was destroyed...by a GREEN person. This anger is as focused and controlled as anger can be, and Jackie has only that to confront The Immortal Hulk with. It is enough.

    There's not a ton to say about this issue. This series is really great. It's starting to incorporate religion, specifically Judaism, into this whole idea of Hell and the One Below All and that leads to some interesting concepts. There's one moment that I think some people might take offense to. It's regarding the confrontation between The Hulk and Jakie McGee. Jackie calls Banner an educated white man whose anger society is forced to accept. And it's never accepted as truth. No one says, "she's 100% right." but she makes a compelling case for why, from her perspective, it looks like that. She doesn't know everything Banner has gone through during his life. All she sees is the Hulk destroying lives and the Avengers giving him slaps on the wr more

    I'm not actually sure what happened but it was good.

    Never thought I would like a Hulk series so much.

    So much love just for Jackie calling out the entitlement of white men even when they are also green. Not at all sure where this is going. But I am thrilled with the ride.

    While I enjoyed the art work, this story is getting more and more confusing! So many questions.
