    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Sep 12, 2018

    In the end, if youre not reading this book, youre missing out. Even if youre not a Hulk fan, this is something different, and unique enough, that you should be at least giving it a look. Ewing is turning in the best work of his career with this dark, violent take on the Hulk that still manages to stay true to everything that came before it. It should be at the top of everyones pull list, no matter what kind of comics you like. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Sep 19, 2018

    The Immortal Hulk cuts deep. It shows a vulnerable side to the Hulk that is scarier than any of the chaos he's caused to date. Writer Al Ewing strikes right at the heart of the character, shaking him to the core. Bruce Banner has been keeping a low profile, but the events of this issue will be hard to keep under wraps. This is a stunning character study that never fails to deliver. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Aaron Berkowitz Sep 5, 2018

    THE IMMORTAL HULK #5 proves to be yet another seriously stupendous issue in an already stellar run. Al Ewing outdoes himself this issue with the amount of pathos he pushes into the story. Joe Bennett's art is simply haunting. If you're a Hulk fan and haven't read this series yet, fix that immediately! Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Alex Henning Sep 13, 2018

    The art is, as usual, really well done, and I honestly can't imagine it looking any other way now. Al Ewing's writing just screams “Hulk Comic” and works for literally every character presented. If I were to ever recommend you read a Hulk comic, It would be this one! Al Ewing and the team have crafted a masterful horror story that not only call back to the origins of the character but takes us in a new direction that's turning out to be super fun. If you are reading Marvel stuff currently, do yourself a favor and pick this series (and this issue) up! Everything is just so well done that it just works. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Sep 8, 2018

    Immortal Hulk #5 is a beautiful deathmatch of a comic. We get to see the Hulk duel another of Marvels greatest creatures in a smashing brawl accompanied by dark themes and revelations. Bennett, Jose, and Mounts make it darkly gorgeous. This book earns a strong recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jacqueline Juretus Sep 6, 2018

    Anyone who has been tentatively following the series but are unsure if they should continue will most likely get fully onboard with #5. Those that loved the series from the beginning will love it more. This is the issue that makes it safe to assume Hulk fans and monster fans should pick up the trade when it comes out, if they haven't been reading it already. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Sep 7, 2018

    For Banner and the Hulk, the situation has become personal, and the villain behind everything has already proven more haunting than the Hulk because of it. If anything, it shows that while the Hulk might be immortal, he's not invincible. Meanwhile, Mcgee finally reveals why she has been chasing the Hulk and that can lead to nowhere good. Another great issue of The Immortal Hulk proves that Ewing and Bennet have found success in trying something different. As the story moves forward I can't wait to see how the Hulk deals with a situation he can't punch himself out of. Read Full Review
