    Immortal Hulk remains a steamroller of a superhero comic, and it seems that #19 will only make it all the more powerful and fear-inducing. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers May 29, 2019

    If youre not already reading this book (and the sales indicate that many people are), then youre missing out on a modern classic in the making. Not since the days of David and Pak has the Hulk been portrayed so pitch perfectly. This is a run for the longtime Hulk fans who have been hoping for a return to glory for the character, and it genuinely does seem like Ewing is just getting started. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jun 8, 2019

    The Immortal Hulk freaks me out in the best way. It's terrifically paced and scary through and through. You go through quiet and tense moments where you'll be nervous about turning the page and then you'll get all out monster-on-monster battles that are like smaller versions of Godzilla movies. This is everything I want from a comic and it is consistently one of the best books on the stands today. Damn, is it good. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze May 30, 2019

    Immortal Hulk #18 was a wild ride. Overall there was a lot of clarity given to who is controlling what part of Bruce and Hulk, and revelations found in what enemies have been plotting in the background. Right now this creative team is setting the right mood to really question what kind of monster is the worst. The one that is right in front of you? The one who you underestimate? Or is it the one who has been lurking in the shadows for years? Only time will tell, but we are all invested to find out for better or for worse! Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge May 30, 2019

    Managing to be both a horror book and stunning deconstruction of the Hulk mythos, Immortal Hulk #18 continues to play to the series' strengths. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken May 31, 2019

    In a way, Banner himself is evolving as well. The relationship between Banner and Hulk is growing closer, but Banner is relying less on the Hulk's "protection." Clearly, he and the "Devil Hulk" have something planned. Whatever develops, I feel like Ewing is going to drop a bomb on us that will blow our minds. He continues to up his game on the horrifying, unnatural and awe-inspiring aspects of this book. Ewing's not only out to reinvent the Hulk, but the whole Hulk mythos. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Adrian Care May 29, 2019

    An exercise in necessity (and that's not just a clever metatextual play on this issues' subtitle). This is an issue with a lot of meat on its bones. There's exposition, development, action, chills, terrors, and a whole lot of things that go bump in the night. It is story delivered inside spine-tingling spectacle and it's another must-read issue of Marvel's best title. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin May 29, 2019

    With sales figures, awards nominations, and nigh-universal acclaim verifying their storytelling talent, the creators of the Immortal Hulk forge confidently ahead with a delightful dose of long-form storytelling. #18 fascinates even though the big fights and twists are largely restricted to foreshadowing. The creators believe their story is compelling enough to keep readers riveted even in its quieter moments. They're absolutely right. Read Full Review
