    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Apr 4, 2019

    In the end, this review was just the tip of the iceberg in discussing the exciting things taking place inside the issue. There are significant reveals for several characters, plus the insane swerve ending that will leave readers heads spinning, so there are plenty of reasons to pick up this book. Ewing is defining this title for years to come, in the same way, that Peter David defined it for a generation in the 90s. If youre a Hulk fan, and youre not currently picking up this comic, youre missing one of the best possible versions of one of your favorite characters. Run out and pick up the Ewing trades immediately! Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lucas Fashina Apr 3, 2019

    Ewing continues to knock it out of the park with the Immortal Hulk and continues to be the best modern day Marvel writer not named Cates. His seamless integrations of what came before, rather than discarding it as heavy continuity is impressive. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Adrian Care Apr 3, 2019

    There's not even a unit of measurement for how this series continues to improve on each previous issue's brilliance. If you're not reading the Immortal Hulk by now, not even Doc Samson could help you. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Aaron Berkowitz Apr 3, 2019

    THE IMMORTAL HULK #16 proves that Al Ewing is, very likely, in the midst of the greatest Hulk run of all time. It's another stupendous issue. Joe Bennett draws the best Hulk transformation I've seen. It's horrific, and I love it! Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Apr 9, 2019

    Al Ewing, Joe Bennett, Ruy Jose, and Paul Mounts seem to have a very clear vision for their era of Hulk and, if the multiple printings are any indication, people are clearly responding to it. #16 is just another great example of how grimly entertaining this series continues to be.

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Apr 7, 2019

    Meanwhile, Joe Bennett continues to deliver stellar artwork, fantastic gamma battles, and characters work that sets up this body dysmorphia horror tale. Seriously, I feel like Bennet is just using this book as an excuse to see if he can make each Hulk transformation more grotesque than the last. With so much left to think about until the next issue, Immortal Hulk remains one of the best Marvel books on the shelves. Read Full Review

    The world continues to grow darker around Bruce Banner, and this issue's final page hints that his mind may be more fractured than anyone thought. Read Full Review

    -Holy shit. This series is sixteen issues in, and it still manages to be consistent in quality and surprise me every time.

    -Joe Bennet's art is perfection. It's about as good as it gets.

    -I really liked the narration from Rick's autobiography. It was something new.

    -Oh man those opening scenes were disturbing and creepy. I love it!

    -Nice to revisit a location from a previous issue. I like it.

    -Leonard is still a great character.

    -I love how much this comic emphasizes that the Hulk and Bruce Banner are two different people.

    -I don't think I'll ever grow tired of Joe Bennet's creepy transformation scenes.

    -Those Hulkimals were w more

    I’m now sold on the fact that Al Ewing is writing a book that in 50 years will still be referenced as the bar for the Green Man Monster. Or Gray in some cases... Very few times in history has someone wrote a story and allowed an artist to read their mind like the combo of Ewing and Bennett. This isn’t just my favorite Hulk book but has quickly wound up as my favorite book of all time. Waiting on 17 after this ending is gonna be torture.

    I ma not ready to say that this supersedes the PAD era as "Greatest Hulk Series." But certainly Ewing is swinging for the fences and connecting every time, and it seems he's got a huge master plan.

    Aside from telling a great story and making the Devil Hulk a fascinating character, Ewing is expertly taking elements from all over. This issue alone revisits the Hulk's origin, brings back a charactger we probably haven't seen since the PAD run (in the most unusual way), goes back to the Herb Trimpe era for a twist we probably didn't expect (though maybe fans of more recent Hulk runs aren't surprised)and even tosses in some hulk-dogs. And all of it works!

    This issue gets a 10 all day from me. I've been reading this Hulk run since issue 1 and just when I'd wonder how it can get even better, issue 16 hits. This issue is firing on all the right horror cylinders! From the grotesquely awesome Hulk transformation, the superb writing and hauntingly beautiful art work with perfect colors. People passing up on the Immortal Hulk will very likely wish they hadn't.

    Great book by Ewing and great flow. All the new and old elements merged in a beautiful manner! Joe Bennett is outstanding here. His horror show is just crazy. Loved the different inking by Jose and of course Mounts on colors is the icing on the cake!!

    This may be the best ongoing in both big companies and probably has been for a while now. The art and feel of the comic are great a Big Al’s take on Banner, Hulk, the cast and crew pays tribute to the past while putting his own haunting spin on the gamma infused Goliath! If you aren’t reading this, your missing out. Al’s done his homework and the ending to this one it pretty sweet. Not for younger audiences though :)

    "This place is not a place of honor"

    Wait, so the guy drawing the book was just another Hulk persona all this time? That's a twist, that's very twisty.

    What can I write about this issue? It's great, wonderful. Just like this book has been since the very beginning.

    Banner is working with Samson, then after horrifying transformation (Joe Bennet at his finest), Hulk with Samson. They talk, fight some monsters and then fall into a trap.

    We get a glimpse of resurrected Betty Ross. I like the new look.

    And we meet yet another persona, that is occupying the very messed up head of doctor Robert Bruce Banner. I think I will call this one "The Joker Hulk".

    Excellent comic book.
