    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Aug 17, 2020

    Immortal Hulk is pure, unbridled terror. It's full of heart so the scares pack a much bigger punch. We're dealing with massive, cosmic horror through the lens of a super hero previously known primarily for smashing stuff. This is so much more and I love every part of it. This comic delivers on so many levels. Read Full Review

    The Immortal Hulk has enshrined itself as one of modern comics' greatest horror series by steeping all of its most terrible moments in very real problems. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Aug 20, 2020

    If youve been reading this book, you already know its great. If you havent been reading it, you have no idea what youve been missing. The Immortal Hulk is, possibly, the best book Marvel is publishing right now, with the arguable exception of Hickmans X-men. Do yourself a favor, and start picking up the trades now, so you can catch up before Ewing ends his run with issue #50. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 13, 2020

    Joe Bennett is a master at crafting both action and intense moments of body horror. The art is breathtaking at times and always draws the reader's eye as it captures both the tone and emotion of the story. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Aug 12, 2020

    Immortal Hulk #36 tables most of the title's intellectual profundity, devoting itself instead to body horror and thrilling action. The pace is pretty fast, but the quality of the horror and action -- thanks mainly to the expert art talents of Joe Bennett -- is absolutely top of the line. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Aug 12, 2020

    But even with this visual misstep, the sequence itself is incredibly harrowing, made even more so by the art team's expansive, hard-hitting layouts and Ewing's pitched dialogue. As the Hulk tries to defend himself, giant tears in his eyes, Gamma Flight takes the fights right to him, pinning Ol' Jade Jaws down and leading Crusher Creel to take on a major power upgrade. To spoil it would be to give away the issue's biggest moment, but trust me when I say, it's much more than just a run-of-the-mill comic fight. With a sharp darkness and eye-grabbing, unsettling artwork, Immortal Hulk #36 returns to its main story with a bang. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Aug 12, 2020

    Ewing certainly takes a back seat this issue for the return of the frighteningly detailed illustrations of Joe Bennett and his art team. To fans that have been reading since the beginning, you'll also agree that some issues are more art heavy and brutal than others leaving some of the plot to be a bit less desirable. Well, IMMORTAL HULK #36 is one of those installments this week. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Aug 12, 2020

    Overall, Immortal Hulk #36 went the distance to flip Banner's plans on its head. Nothing which unfolded here is what anyone would have imagined possible when going outside for only a ribbon cutting. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Tim Chuma Aug 17, 2020

    I would recommend this one if you are a fan of the Hulk or want something a bit different than the usual comics with the weirder art style and more out there story. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tom Caniglia Aug 25, 2020

    Immortal Hulk #36 (Ewing, Bennet) feels like a filler issue, a side-effect of writing for the trade. Still a cut above the standard issue these days, but hard to appreciate in its own right. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 17, 2020

    The only thing more chilling than the destruction from the Gamma explosion is the horror that the child-like Hulk feels about it. A really effective and creepy issue. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Darryll Robson Aug 12, 2020

    If you figure out what this comic is trying to be then you will find more enjoyment in it. The unhappy blend of horror and comedy never quite strikes the right balance and the reading experience suffers because of this. Read Full Review
