    This is an achievement of editing, plotting, and style, one that shows just how much gamma radiation is left to be wrung from this decades old monster. Keep it coming. Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - soshillinois Jul 18, 2018

    Of course this issue doesnt work half as well without the quartet of guest artists assembled for this issue; in addition of course to the regular team of Joe Bennett, Ruy Jose, and Paul Mounts. The division of labor between Leonardo Romeros superheroic rendition of events via the Cop, Marguerite Sauvages more romance comic-oriented version of the Old Lady, Paul Hornschemeiers Bartender, and Garry Browns more Frank Miller-esque grimy and gritty telling of the Priests version of events tell a very contradictory, interlocking, and rather unnerving puzzlebox of what actually went down at the church between the issues villain Hotshot and the Hulk. All told this run of Hulk while only three issues in is already looking like a real classic. Now is as good a time as any to jump into the pool. If youre looking for a classic horror comic with a capital H, youre in for a treat here. Read Full Review

    THE IMMORTAL HULK #3 is downright memorable. It tells an engaging story in a truly unique way. I continue to be impressed by what Al Ewing's doing with this book. It just keeps getting better and better. The guest artists all shine in their respective story sections. Pick up this issue, even if you haven't read the first two issues. You won't regret it!

    The Immortal Hulk is probably the best book to come out of Marvel's Fresh Start relaunch, and possibly one of the best books this year. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jul 31, 2018

    The Immortal Hulk has been a gamma-infused monster-of-the-week comic so far and that's been fun. This reporter searching for Banner adds an overall arc to the series which could prove very interesting as she gets closer to her subject. There is a surprisingly large number of villains popping up with gamma ray abilities, so Banner's staying busy, even when he's trying to stay off the radar. This newer, darker version of the Hulk has been creepy and awesome to watch. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Jul 20, 2018

    The Immortal Hulk is by far my favorite interpretation of the Hulk in a long while. And we are only three issues in! Ewing puts a lot of thought into the character, his history and telling a compelling story. While experimental narrative we get for issue three, I hope he keeps moving more towards the horror aspect of The Immortal Hulk and the tales of this brutal Avenger. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Jared Wood Jul 23, 2018

    Being only three issues in, this break from the norm was a somewhat startling change but it proved interesting enough to keep you engaged. Even just as a single Hulk tale I would say it's worth picking up as 95% of the story stands on it's own at any point in Hulk's history. I'm looking forward to seeing what's next from the Immortal Hulk team. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Russ Dobler Jul 18, 2018

    It's close to the best it could be for a single issue with such high ambition. Not all the artistic decisions work, and some facets could be fleshed out more, but it gets the point across and advances the narrative at the same time, which is no small feat. Read Full Review

    PopCultHQ - Christian Kern Jul 18, 2018

    What can I say? I loved it! Three issues in and The Immortal Hulk has not failed me. I still wish it was called 'The Incredible Hulk' but at least it carries the Legacy Number for the Incredible Hulk, as well as the numbering for Immortal Hulk (although I wonder just how long that will remain?). I think Al Ewing has a fantastic grasp on this character! Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Jul 18, 2018

    Overall, this is not a bad issue. Its actually pretty entertaining, but the placement of it, three issues in, while readers are still clamoring for details about what is going on with the main character, makes it come off more as filler than an extension of the last two issues. Filler is fine when its done well, but three issues into a series is not the place for it. Hopefully, given the intriguing ending, this was just Ewing providing the quiet before the storm. Either way, it should be worth sticking around as long as he keeps moving forward, instead of treading water. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Hussein Wasiti Jul 24, 2018

    This is exactly the kind of issue the series shouldn't have put out at this point in its life cycle. It's too early to experiment like this, especially since certain people can be totally put off by the constant art changes. The first few issues of a book are critical since you need to maintain your tone, but Ewing breaks his streak and as far as I'm concerned, needs to earn it again with the next few issues.
