There's a monster raging in America's heartland - and it's not the Hulk. When a young girl goes missing on a Kansas farm, Bruce Banner gets the itch - the one that tells him gamma is on the loose. But this town doesn't take kindly to strangers - especially the big, green, violent kind. Can the Hulk save a child before it's too late, or is he about to take the blame for another massacre?

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Oct 25, 2020

    With the success of Immortal Hulk, I'm glad to see Marvel doubling down to give us new and unsettling stories with this creepy part of the Marvel Universe. This one-shot is special, moving from pure terror to shining hope. It's the kind of horror that can chill you to the core one moment and then bring a tear to your eye the next. This is one of the best one-shots of the year. Read Full Review

    We live in a moment where hope is difficult to summon, and The Threshing Place channels feelings of rage, despair, and desperation beautifully into a final few moments that offer a genuine glimmer of hope. I'm grateful for this one-shot and the honest emotion it offers readers today. Read Full Review

    IMMORTAL HULK: THE THRESHING PLACE #1 is the perfect symbol of what the Hulk truly is for mankind and the balance he brings to fallen humanity. I strongly recommend the read and purchase. My hope is that many take notice of this issue so that maybe the baton can be passed to Lemire and Del Mundo after IMMORTAL HULK ends following issue 50. Read Full Review

    There will always be a level of fear when a successful character/book falls into a different creative team's hands but not only does Lemire and Del Mundo show this title justice, they have left me wanting so much more! Whether you're a Hulk or horror fan it's an absolute must to pick this issue up! Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 29, 2020

    The Immortal Hulk: The Threshing Place is the perfect Hulk story both for readers who loved the classic monster version of Hulk and for those who have enjoyed the recent run. This is a version of Hulk that's terrifying and yet holds the preciousness of life dear. This is a story about how an untamed monster finds justice in a world where justice is hard to come by due to the nature of protected entities larger than ourselves. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given Oct 5, 2020

    A hodgepodge of different Hulk type scenarios wrapped up in a nice little package. This title doesn't hold back and we get the feel for the original character and how it was done in the early '60s with a touch of the cinematic versions including Lou Ferrigno's take on the character but with a modern sensibility, all while keeping the current savage persona intact an awesome read and enjoyable.

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Sep 30, 2020

    Immortal Hulk: Threshing Floor is an interesting and rewarding side-story. Its creators are mindful of the main book's tone but unafraid to explore their own spin on Devil Hulk and Bruce Banner. If you like the Immortal Hulk -- particularly the early, episodic issues -- you'll love this throwback tale that could easily be added to the first trade paperback. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 6, 2020

    You can almost hear the sad piano as this issue ends, but it's a really well-developed vignette with the added layers of The Green Door to make it more tragic. Really quite good. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Sep 29, 2020

    When all is said and done The Immortal Hulk: The Threshing Place #1 delivers a serviceable story. If it was a simple filler issue in an ongoing series it would be worth picking up just to keep a collection intact. As a stand-alone one-shot, however, I cant really find any compelling reason to go out of the way to pick it up. Its not bad, but there is plenty out there that is better. Read Full Review
