Is Hercules a Skrull? Maybe. But is he an Eternal? Ikaris and Thena certainly think so, and they may just kill Herc to prove it!

    I'll admit, I'm wasn't exactly drooling with anticipation for the upcoming "Sacred Invasion," which features Herc tangling with Skrull deities, but Incredible Hercules has more than proven it's capable of handling a screwy story and pulling it off. Herc is as incredible as ever. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Apr 15, 2008

    So what is the deal with the gang hanging around San Francisco? Well, it appears Athena has made a startling revelation and she realizes mankind is going to need a lot of help. What this revelation is won't come as a surprise to most, but it sure did surprise me! With Khoi Pham now gone as penciler, I was weary of what we'd be getting out of Rafa Sandoval. But Sandoval easily survives his trial by fire and delivers some really good art. Some of his facial expressions are a bit wonky (particularly Ikaris), but everyone else is down pat, especially Hercules. Read Full Review

    I don't know if this series is doing well or not, but it deserves to be one of Marvel's top sellers. Like Hercules himself, it's smarter and more nuanced than you'd expect. And it will punch you in the face if you don't believe it. Read Full Review

    The next issue marks the title's Secret Invasion tie-in. Instead of inducing a fit of eye-rolling, it stirred curiosity as to what role Hercules & company have to play; certainly it will be unique among the plethora of Event books. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Apr 16, 2008

    The biggest surprise of this issue was Athena's reason for calling a meeting of the various pantheon's of the Marvel Universe, mainly telling them that they are the protectors of Earth and humanity and that they have been invaded by Skrulls, as she holds a severed Skrull head that she pulled out of her bag. Definitely got the message across for me in a powerful bit of imagery. I have my doubts about the whole "God Squad", but can't help but be curious about it. Read Full Review
