    While at this point the Punisher guest slot doesn't seem to actually service the story, the issue's finale suggests we may see some more guests soon enough, and that in turn suggests that it's not something happening by accident. We'll no doubt see before long. If you've got any interest in the character, now is a good time to start reading -- although do yourself a favor and read the similarly great #7.1 issue too!

    Blue Raven Comics - Clark Bullock Jun 7, 2012

    There were some very memorable moments in this issue, and Aaron once again proves that he is the king of “Hulk Smash.” The amount of twists within this book really made want to read more. Trying to find out if Banner and Hulk are reunited, how Pitbull is involved, and why Hulk wakes up with a huge scar on his chest at the end of the issue. All of these moments made my mind buzz with questions. The only real complaint I have is with Steve Dillon's art. Steve Dillion, being mainly a Punisher artist, doesn't really make Hulk big enough and a few of the face models are kind of iffy. All in all, the story arc fit well into the series. I am anticipating the issues to come and hope that this book doesn't fall flat. I give this read an 8/10. Read Full Review

    Punisher Central - Neil Byce May 30, 2012

    The issue is highly entertaining. It is intriguing the way that Aaron is setting up the StayAngry series as to just what the readers may discover with Hulk throughout theArc. There are pieces of the issue that lack believability but it is fun and ithas the Punisher! We get a few great moments of dialogue between the two ofthem and an interrogation scene where Punisher tortures a Hispanic man J Read Full Review

    There are huge problems here that I can't totally ignore, but I can't deny that I had a LOT of fun reading this. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long May 30, 2012

    Overall, this issue of The Incredible Hulk is quite a bit better than the books from the past arc. Aaron's writing has been strong for the entire series and continues to be, with the art finally taking steps to catch up with him. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is probably the craziest Aarons' run on the series has been yet, and I don't think that's a bad thing at all, but I really wish another artist aside from Steve Dillon was chosen to open this exciting arc. I look forward to seeing where the story takes us, because something tells me it's going to end with quite a bang. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 30, 2012

    Fundamentally, this series is on firmer ground as it barrels into its second story arc. Unfortunately, there are some notable flaws remaining that still prevent Incredible Hulk from reaching its full potential. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring May 30, 2012

    It's a right down the middle issue. I was a little bummed with a few things, but I was surprised by a few others. I enjoyed the reverse side of the Banner/Hulk world here as we only see the world through the eyes of the Hulk as he tries to figure out what crazy old Banner has been up to. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Jun 2, 2012

    Steve Dillons illustrations are always a treat to look at except that his version of the Hulk looks weird, it just looks like a body builder covered in green paint. Having said that, I didnt completely hate this issue, there are a few funny scenes, like when the Hulk tells the Punisher to shoot him in the face to crank up his anger. Hilarious. This was a disappointing issue, especially when the last one was so fun. From Marvel Comics. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Jun 1, 2012

    Incredible Hulk #8 was a miss with me. I feel good in my decision to avoid this title. I would only recommend The Incredible Hulk #8 to big action fans or to die-hard fans of Aaron and Dillon. Outside of those readers, I do not think that this issue offers up enough quality in order to justify the popular character tax in the $4 cover price. Save your money and use it on some of the other titles on the market that are far more worth it. Some of them even at a cheaper price than $4, too. Read Full Review
