    Time of Monsters #1 is an excellent addition to the sprawling lore of The Immortal Hulk, but what elevates it above being another good Hulk story is how it condenses a complete legend into so few pages in a comic book bound to impress any who pick it up. Read Full Review

    I'd need to be an idiot or blind not to score this a perfect five stars for both stories and the breath-taking artwork within. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips May 19, 2021

    Overall, this issue exceeded all expectations I had of whatTime of Monsters was really about. Yet, now I find myself yearning for more stories from this archaic green nightmare. Paknadel and Ewing may have sought to write a fun one shot, but theyve stumbled on to a phenomenal idea, paired with the visuals from Ferreyra, this is a story Marvel fans would certainly be lining up for more of!

    There's no getting around this. This one-shot is a damn near perfect comic. The writing and art are both scary, but in their own unique ways. The story feels essential to the overallImmortal Hulkepic and even the back-up is great. A must-buy. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jun 2, 2021

    Immortal Hulk: Time of Monsters joins a growing list of solid one-shots dealing with the new status quo of the Green Goliath. This is a welcome addition and I hope we get to see more from these creative teams soon. Honestly, I'm just glad we're getting such top-notch horror in the Marvel Universe. More please!

    AIPT - David Brooke May 17, 2021

    Comics like this make me sad that Immortal Hulk is coming to an end. The depth of character and the types of things you can do with this hero feel limitless in the hands of these creators. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu May 17, 2021

    However, there just appeared to be a few historic and narrative holes within the current Marvel Continuity that just didnt seem to jive with this reader. They dont completely ruin the issue. Nevertheless, those invested may find them a bit disjointed and disheartening. Yet, even with those minor cavities, I still found the issue incredibly entertaining and wildly enjoyable. Give IMMORTAL HULK: TIME OF MONSTERS #1 a look, let me know what you think, read up on some Gilgamesh, and God Bless! Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lucas Fashina May 18, 2021

    Great read if you have been keeping up with the change in Immortal Hulk lore so far and game changing. I question the need for the secondary story because it didn't fit the theme. Otherwise, good stuff. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Nico Sprezzatura May 19, 2021

    Time of Monsters is bolstered with a bonus Bruce-centric story by David Vaughan and Kevin Nowlan, which is perfectly good but ultimately feels like padding to justify a higher cover price. I appreciate efforts to spotlight other creators and give them free reign to do whatever they want with characters through shorter backups, but I dont know if this issue in particular needs it.
