    Point blank, you should be reading this. This is currently the best that Marvel has to offer. It's a great book with a great story with a bit of role reversal. Hulk doesn't come off as the villain in this one, but Banner does. That being said, the mild "insanity factor" that Banner has in this series has been really cool. Also, Silvestri's art is reason enough to pick this series up. The only problem I had with this book was that there wasn't a great balance of action and story. It was way too action heavy. Do yourself a favor and pick this book up. I highly recommend it. Read Full Review

    Highly Recommended! This was a great issue! It had a bit of everything: back story/explanation, action, redemption, reveal, a clear path forward. It is definitely worth picking up as a solid book on its own, as well as a great part of the series. I can't wait for the next issue! Read Full Review

    Now this was an intense issue. For the first time in three issues, I feel that the writing has finally caught up with the art. Silvestri's art has dominated the attention of the fans for two months, now its finally time to pay attention to Jason Aaron's story. Read Full Review

    Dammit!! When I wrote the introduction to this post, I was like 86.8756% certain I'd be dropping this series after closing this comic book up. Instead I'm almost positive I'll be forced to pick up at least another issue, as I REALLY want to see the Crazy Bruce/Hulk confrontation. Yeah sure, I have a pretty good idea of how the storyline will(probably) eventually end(look above at “The Bad” section!), but I still want to see Crazy Bruce and Hulk get in each other's faces. *sigh* Well, I guess I'll probably drop the Ultimates and keep this series... For now... Read Full Review

    The biggest strength of Aaron and Silvestri's Hulk is undoubtedly the tight focus on the character that the art and writing afford. It's a welcome change from the last few years, where multiple spin-offs of the character dominated his world. It might not be perfect, but it is interesting, and most importantly, it doesn't feel like a homage to earlier work. Hulk fans everywhere can (and should) expect to be entertained and intrigued in equal measure. Read Full Review

    Enjoying this series very much but apparently next issue is not illustrated by Marc Silvestri. I hope hes just taking a break and will be back in the near future. If theres one thing I hate about the comic book industry is artists leaving half way through a story arc. At least commit to wrapping up the arc. Otherwise another fine looking issue from Jason Aaron (Scalped) and Marc Silvestri (Cyberforce). From Marvel Comics. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 21, 2011

    At least his interpretation of Hulk is solid. The juxtaposition of the man vs. monster angle remains strong. The character retains his previous level of relative intelligence, allowing him to successfully narrate the series without it descending into farce. Hulk is the right blend between savage and hero. But will that be enough to carry the series for any real length of time? Read Full Review

    Not bad, but nothing to really get excited about either. Aaron's take on the Hulk is getting better, the boar brothers are amusing, but I'm still waiting for this book to live up to, and capitalize on, those glimmers of potential that it so clearly has. Read Full Review

    For all the misgivings I have about where Aaron's Incredible Hulk is going, I'm not going to get all worked up into a nerd-rage about it - at least not right now with the holiday spirit and all. Here's the bottom line with this and most any run of comics - if it turns out good, hot damn, great. If it turns out crap, then it will eventually end and fade into obscurity as one of those chapters in the character's history we don't talk about. Every iconic character has some of them. Sure, it's annoying as all get-out in the short term when one of your favorite characters is going through a suck phase, or when you think it's a suck phase but everyone else seems to drool over it, but patience is a virtue. This, too, will pass. Read Full Review

    Hulk is one of my favorite characters and Aaron is on the short list of my favorite writers but this book just isn't doing it for me. Obviously there is still room for the story to take shape but this book is simply dragging on too much at this point. Loeb's book's flaw was the mystery being teased again and again, but this book's flaw, so far, is that its taking issue after issue just to get Banner and Hulk to meet up with little reason or argument as to why they should or should not. This is a frustrating book unless you like pure action. Read Full Review
