Stalking across the depths of the ocean, dispatching everything from sharks to giant squids, comes the Hulk. As a long-buried episode from Bruce Banner's youth begins to surface with possible ramifications for the future, the Hulk finds himself washed up on a strange island, populated by several hapless victims... and some most unexpected monsters.

    The Davids half-decade away from the character has done nothing to dull his understanding of Banner and the Hulk. While the issue provided little chance for Davids patented snappy dialogue, the piercing insight into the Hulk more than makes up for it. With luck, this is the first issue of another Peter David decade-long run as writer of The Incredible Hulk. Read Full Review

    Lee Weeks is my personal favourite artist who has never really found himself a monthly title to call home, and as such I'm delighted to discover that he looks to be the artist on Peter David's run, as in addition to being a highly capable artist, his style is perfectly suited to the material. I mean the Hulk is a character that requires an artist who is able to balance the large scale action, such as this issue's battle with the giant squid, with the more personal character moments, such as the unsettling flashback moment where we see a young Banner holding a conversation with the Hulk. There's also a great visual introduction scene to open this issue, as how can one not be impressed with the opening double-page shot of the Hulk, and the final page surprise is a great final image to carry us into the next issue, though I must confess there was a brief moment of confusion, until I noticed that Banner hadn't left his position on the ground.
