Is General Ross truly the mastermind behind the mysteries of the Island? Is the Hulk really having a toe-to-toe smack-down with one of the most legendary monsters in the history of Marvel? Has Peter David gone completely nuts? Two of these three questions will be answered in this issue.

    The The Hulk is always the most entertaining when its about the psychological aspects of the character, not mindless destruction. The subplot of the Hulk as Banners imaginary friend is as interesting as the mystery about the island. This is one story paced for the trades thats worth every issue. Read Full Review

    It's a little disappointing to learn on the letters page that Lee Weeks's run on this title is only going to last until the end of this arc, as I had convinced myself that we finally got Lee Weeks attached to a monthly title, and it's a shame to learn this isn't the case. This issue is a perfect example of why readers should be writing Marvel about getting more work lined up for Lee Weeks, as all the proof one needs is the battle between the Hulk and Fin Fang Foom. From the amusing display where the Hulk reacts to Fin Fang Foom's blast of fire, to the sheer spectacle of the panel where the Hulk keeps himself from becoming a late night snack, this is pure visual excitement. There's also a fantastic visual sequence where the Hulk sends the giant creature to its death in the heart of a volcano. Also while it's a little detail, I was quite impressed by how effectively the art managed to sell the surprise that this issue offers up in its final panel. Read Full Review
