    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Feb 3, 2021

    While a more low-key affair than we are used to seeing from the series, Immortal Hulk #43 still comes to the table with a great deal of power, both visually and narratively. Bolstered by Al Ewing's attention to character and the art team's terrifyingly good synchronicity and handle of the title's visual tone, Immortal Hulk #43 stays strong as the title heads into its final issues.

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Mar 9, 2021

    This may not be the most exciting issue, but it does leave you wanting more in the best of possible ways. If youve been a fan of this series, this chapter is yet another worthy addition to the overall epic Hulk story that Ewing is telling. If youre not already a fan of this series, then youve clearly taken leave of your senses, and the world mourns the loss of your taste. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 3, 2021

    Joe Bennett delivers some impressive imagery throughout the issue. The panels with Joe in New York are fun, vibrant and full of energy and charm. The action is fantastic and the details catch the eye. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Feb 8, 2021

    Obviously, there is no talking about this week's issue of Immortal Hulk without mentioning the controversy surrounding Joe Bennett's artwork. Unfortunately, it is a glaring issue and for an artist as good as Bennett, the offending panel is unacceptable. Joe takes a lot of great care when it comes to the details of the book. You can see it in the several other references he peppers throughout the issue. It feels too careless and if anything even adding that detail of the Jewish star, along with the misspelling of the Jewelry store feels unnecessary. It sucks because the controversy pulls away from an otherwise great issue. Joe still does great work and always has a standout panel that is unlike anything you see in other books. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - acnbat Feb 3, 2021

    This issue cools things down and takes it slow as Joe Fixit takes the drivers seat and takes readers on a cool yet predictable story. However, its not without a good bit of action, mystery, and suspense as it reopens a few past storylines and sets up new ones. This comic is a recommend for readers who want to see more of Joe Fixit in charge and like a slower story. But if you want more action and heart-pounding body horror, then you might want to wait for the next issue when the Hulk faces off against the U-Foes. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Feb 3, 2021

    Readers will find this Joe Fixit centered issue of IMMORTAL HULK rather trivial before it concludes simply because we ultimately ended exactly where we should have started the issue" with a U-FOES showdown. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Feb 3, 2021

    Overall, it was a good issue, that feels like the calm before a storm. For a few issues now, Hulk has been ripped apart and beaten to his possibly lowest point weve ever seen. Ewing appears to be building toward a moment here, and Im looking forward to see where he continues to take this series. Read Full Review

    On the one hand, this was as good as usual. On the other, that Jewelry store window with the word "Jewery" and the big Star of David was super unnecessary and what the hell was up with that?

    The Hulk literally saved a kid from police brutality. I am fucking done. Released at the top of the U.S. corporation's Black History Month , my favorite founding Avenger did a "brother" a solid. Now a lot of people, who do not identify as Afro-American. have been dragged through the mud for including these Rodney King - like instances in there art , as using plight for profit. Coming from California , where I have experienced and witnessed police brutality to the point where to escape such social ills, I exported myself to Middle America, I don't care how contrived that scene may seem to readers - it was too cool. I would have killed to have the Hulk have my back when I was in my teens getting my face ground into pavement by SG or LAPD , be more

    I don't think this is a weaker issue. I really liked seeing Joe Fixit in action. After how crazy last arc was, I think some readers are finding that the slower pace is a hindrance. And side note: the antisemitism in the art by Joe Bennett should not be tolerated. It's a shame that a talented artist like him has such idiotic opinions.

    Joe Fixit presents Grifting 102, Peter Gyrich presents U-Foes 101, Gamma Flight meets a monster, and the U-Foes square off with the Skinny-Savage Hulk. The thoughtful/useful bits of texture presented in place of more plot development are outstanding. Joe Fixit is a fun narrator. The rundown on the U-Foes is helpful for a lot of readers, including me. The police brutality scene that brings forth the Savage Hulk has the sharp sting of contemporary realism. Even the unfortunate, possibly-unintentional inclusion of anti-Semitic imagery in the 1st edition is food for thought.

    Love the Hulk standing up to police brutality. The fact the I can't wait for the next issue is always a good sign. Found Joe Fixit to be a bit slow but loved the rest. Another Banger

    Not rating the Jewery thing, cuz yeah, that's bad. Maybe he took the wrong lessons from Uncut Gems? And also misspelled Cronenberg's name, so maybe no more writing for Mr. Bennett.

    It's not certainly bad. I'm not sure Ewing can even write a bad Immortal Hulk issue.

    It is a bit slower paced issue that focuses on Joe as we haven't seen him in a while. The plot moves forward a little and we get some interesting developments here and there, but ultimately it isn't the strongest issue in the series and I can understand if some readers feel that this issue is a waste.

    But hey, even the weaker issues are still very good and worth your time.

    It was definitely a good read but didnt seem as impactful as a lot of the recent issues. I did like the Joe Fixit outlook on things and the ending.
