A random small-town tragedy. A mystery illness that spreads with grief. A green glow on a lonely mountain. Three puzzle pieces that fit together to make a nightmare. And the only mind on Earth than can connect them up...belongs to the Immortal Hulk.

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jul 15, 2018

    The Immortal Hulk reframes the green goliath from a rampaging monster to a methodical vigilante of vengeance. He stops short of murder here, but death would have been a better option for his victim than what was actually doled out. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Jul 7, 2018

    All in all, Ewings slow burn storytelling might drive away some fans of the classic Hulk Smash version of the character, but if youre a fan of Peter Davids prolific run, which was all about Banner and his ever-changing, fractured mind, then you just might enjoy this story if you give it a shot. Ewing is flexing dramatic muscles he rarely put to use in his runs on Mighty Avengers and U.S. Avengers, and hes turning in some of the best work of his career, so this book is worth checking out for his writing alone.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Dispatchdcu Jul 4, 2018

    Al Ewing is pulling off one shots that are interesting, thought provoking, insightful, and truly depict the HULK in as realistic a way as he could be. The art team is also drawing out of this world and taking this book up to another level. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Aaron Berkowitz Jul 4, 2018

    THE IMMORTAL HULK #2 feels just like a classic Hulk story. Ewing totally understands the Hulk, and it shows. Bennett adds some fabulous artwork to the mix. It makes this one of the best Hulk books in recent memory. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jul 7, 2018

    Immortal Hulk #2 shows a remarkable storytelling acumen from the talented Al Ewing. Hes impressed me before with Mighty Avengers and Ultimates, but Immortal Hulk may be his finest work yet. The plot is tight, the theme is consistent, and Bennet, Ruy Jose, and Mounts keep things looking great. This one earns a strong recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Hussein Wasiti Jul 9, 2018

    I genuinely feel a bit shell-shocked after reading this book. I'd go so far as to say that this is the best book that Marvel is currently publishing, hands out and without a doubt. If you didn't believe that this is actually a horror book, then this book will truly convince you. Pick this up confidently. Read Full Review

    PopCultHQ - Christian Kern Jul 4, 2018

    I know I look forward to more issues of Immortal Hulk (although I wish we'd simply get "Incredible Hulk" back as the title) by Al Ewing. It very likely could be Mr. Ewing will become the next Peter David if he can keep this atomosphere up. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Jared Wood Jul 6, 2018

    Immortal Hulk continues it's horror-movie style very well in this issue, while at the same time sticking to Banner's roots as a wandering loner. These two elements combined with the superb artwork make this the most engaging Hulk comic I've read in quite awhile. I can't wait to see what's in store next. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Jul 5, 2018

    Ewing is doing something pretty crazy with the Hulk. It feels new and like a homage at the same time. He has very much turned the Hulk into a horror movie monster that would fit in with the likes of Dracula and the Creature from the Black Lagoon. I like it and surprised it hasn't been done more often. In my last review, I questioned not knowing where the book was going but now I wouldn't mind seeing every issue be a brand new tale of the Hulk as a spirit of vengeance. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Pashtrik Maloki Jul 4, 2018

    Removing Banner from his usual Avengers setting and giving Hulk a menacing, yet intelligent personality is proving to be a great move and it promises a ton of great and interesting stories. Hopefully, the book will deliver on that promise before the (inevitable) return to the Marvel status quo. Read Full Review

    The Lost Lighthouse - thelostlighthouse Jul 5, 2018

    I'm glad to have picked this story up, I'm a fan of horror and it's a great way to get to know a character I'm a little unfamiliar with still. The villain of the issue feels like a bit of a throw away, and the way the antagonist is shaping up could either result in a very interesting reflection of the Hulk, or feel a bit like an unnecessary inclusion for the sake of it.

    By melding drama, smarts, and bleak morality tales, Immortal Hulk is off to a really strong start. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Chase Magnett Jul 4, 2018

    With a twist straight out of the best EC horror comics and some incredible framing by Bennett, it will leave readers on the edge of their seats with eyes half outside of their skulls. Those final few pages are well worth the wait. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jacqueline Juretus Jul 6, 2018

    Overall, this run is not quite a must buy yet, but shouldn't be completely overlooked. Hopefully all this build up pays off eventually. Read Full Review
