    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Aug 8, 2018

    Overall, despite Banner and the Hulk playing much smaller roles in this issue, this turned out to be one of the stronger chapters of the book so far. Ewing really knows how to build suspense, and he is definitely working towards something big with this story. His pacing has been slow, but purposefully so. Dont expect things to stay that way, though, especially with next issue promising a huge throwdown between the Hulk and Sasquatch. This book is only going to get better as it goes, so sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. Read Full Review

    THE IMMORTAL HULK #4 is another superb addition to a phenomenal new series. Al Ewing shifts the focus to an oft-overlooked character to great effect. Joe Bennett draws this character just about perfectly. You won't want to miss this one! Read Full Review

    I love this series. I wish it was published every week instead of every month. Actually, no I don't. The monthly schedule allows Ewing and company to plot, pace, and draw this phenomenal book properly. I can wait. It's a tough wait though. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Aug 2, 2018

    Bennett's characters are rarely shown in full, with panels that can never seem to contain them, and this visual grammar affords this character study a terrifying combination of intimacy and claustrophobia. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Aug 1, 2018

    Issue #4 of the Immortal Hulk begins setting up the pieces for a bigger story. The slower pace and heavier cargo of exposition might disappoint after the fast, self-contained stories of earlier issues. The enthralling plot and its many tempting questions more than make up for a slow start, and the tale is supported throughout with impeccable art. The first three issues of Immortal Hulk demanded our attention; now that they have it, the creators are dragging us much deeper into the Hulk's scary new world. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Aug 2, 2018

    The Immortal Hulk continues to impress. I do hope though that Ewing starts to focus more on Banner's objectives, as well as unveiling the overarching plot. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Aug 2, 2018

    Part road story, part monster story, Al Ewing, Joe Bennett, Ruy Jose, and Paul Mounts'Immortal Hulkis a master class in pacing and build up fleshing out characters, like Walter Langkowski, and then turning the tables because control is a myth when there is a gamma powered monster inside you.

    Multiversity Comics - Dexter Buschetelli Aug 6, 2018

    Though this may be the weakest of the four issues so far, this book is still very worthy of your pull-list. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Chase Magnett Aug 1, 2018

    As the series makes a transition from the individual stories of the first three issues to its first big cliffhanger and a more expansive plot, it's clear that everything great about Immortal Hulk is here to stay. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Jared Wood Aug 5, 2018

    This issue provided a bit of character growth for both Walter and Bruce through their college flashbacks. Having the perspective shift from Bruce to Jackie and Walter is an interesting change. While this does mean that we get less action, the character development we receive in return helps to provide a stronger reason for caring about each individual. I hope the series does return to it's anthology style at some point, but until then I'm still curious to see where this story leads. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 1, 2018

    This whole issue was a slow build to what looks like a huge fight in the next issue. Why that slow build works is because Al Ewing has done a really good job of grounding the story and the dialogue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Hussein Wasiti Aug 7, 2018

    This was a bit of a down issue since we've understandably shifted focus from Banner to some other characters, but the ending grabbed me and I'm excited to see more. The art is stunning as usual and I think this remains one of the best Marvel books of the past few years. Read Full Review

    PopCultHQ - Christian Kern Aug 1, 2018

    Again, simply a book worth following. It has the flavor of the classic Hulk, it has a nod to television in a sense. Al Ewing knows his Incredible Hulk history and he completely utilizes, as well as taking some inspiration from crazy places one would never imagine"but hey, it works! Just like he did for issue two.

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Aug 5, 2018

    Immortal Hulk #4 is a decent issue. It brings in the Sasquatch, sets up a conflict between he and the Hulk, and the artwork is solid. Its not great, but I can recommend it. Feel free to check it out. Read Full Review
