    Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente deliver another ripping yarn this month, taking what might have been the end of the premise that made the book go, and instead going someplace completely unexpected. Clever dialogue throughout, and some neat moments ("I just figured out that I control the weather... which is AWESOME.") combined with a nicely handled villain reveal make the story really sing, while Reilly Brown and Nelson DeCastro's artgoes from roadside diner to Svartalfheim without a hitch, rendering killer trolls and Hum-Vees with equal skill. Hercules is still hurting from the seeming betrayal of Amadeus Cho, and throwing himself headlong into an adventure is exactly what he (and the ongoing storyline) needs right now. This issue manages to take an unexpected sidetrip while maintaining everything that I've loved about this series since World War Hulk: mythology combined with tongue-in-cheek brilliance, all done at breakneck pace without losing the subtle, enjoyable character moments.

    While not as great as hyped up to be, "Incredible Hercules" #132 is an entertaining and enjoyable issue. Not every joke works, but those that do are funny " and that there's a superhero book trying for this fun, light, funny tone is admirable, and worth a look. Read Full Review
