    As far as I am concerned, Leinil Yu draws the Hulk as good, if not better, than any artist who has ever handled the character. Waid writes the Hulk as larger than life and Yu draws him that way. When Maria Hill says that the Hulk is a WMD, you believe it. The green giant is bursting at his seems. His muscles and veins look like they are about to explode. Seriously, this is incredible stuff. Every page feels like it should be a poster. I just want to wallpaper my house with this book. It's freaking stunning. Read Full Review

    This comic continues to thrill, remains fun, and can be devoured on a single-issue basis, concepts that are fleeting in today's world of comics. The inks get a little funky in the early pages of this issue, but given the fact that Yu spends the time to draw full backgrounds, (what a concept!), this is a minor grievance. Read Full Review

    Den Of Geek! - Robert Bernstein Jan 18, 2013

    Thirdly, Sunny Gho's colors are fantastic, rounding out the creative team behind Indestructible Hulk #3 quite well. I said the same thing last month about Hulk's color, that it's great that Gho went with a different shade of green than the usual hue we are used to seeing. There's a little hint of blue in there which makes this Hulk unique. Indestructible Hulk #3 is action packed and looks stunning! Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - James Hannon Jan 16, 2013

    I'm really digging the fact that Banner, who has seemed to be a loner for so long, is now going to have his own team to work with. So far, they seem to be a dynamic bunch with varying personalities (One in particular seems a bit robotic). I actually cannot wait for the next issue to see how they interact with Bruce; I expect it will be intense. I am sure that Waid and Yu are going to take this comic book places that no Hulk book has gone before, and I will definitely be with them for that journey. This issue was simply brilliant; their best so far in the series. Read Full Review

    This was a fantastic issue, and although it wasn't quite as good as the previous couple of issues it was still brilliant. I would highly recommend both this issue, and the series so far, and am extremely looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    Indestructible Hulk is a book you should really read even if you're not a Hulk fan. I've never been a huge fan of the Hulk but I do enjoy the character. In the end this book has actually made me like the character a little more and I'm definitely excited for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 19, 2013

    This issue is just fun. The reveal that AIM accidentally smuggled Bruce Banner into their lab, who immediately starts to Hulk out, was awesome. And then when Hulk overcomes the odds to tear through the Quintronic Man, it's just plain cool. And that's exactly what this series is: a cool, uncomplicated Hulk. Bruce Banner and the Hulk have been given a back to basics makeover, with a few twists, and I am very happy for that. Leave all the Red Hulks and Sons of Hulk in the past, thank you very much. Just give me a badass Bruce Banner and an awesome Hulk and I am happy. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jan 17, 2013

    The action does seem a little formulaic already " Hulk meets big foe, Hulk gets even stronger to overcome it. But the characterization is enough for Indestructible Hulk to keep its gamma-charged momentum. Read Full Review

    "Indestructible Hulk" #3 is a fantastic superhero comic in the most simple ways any reader can appreciate.

This book is definitely one of the Marvel NOW! highlights and this issue shows why on every front. If you want to see Hulk SMASH! then check this out and see it done with brains behind the brawn.

    I am still on a high with this series so I do recommend it. Waid is building a nice little world here; which is something he did very well with the Daredevil book that he is on. I think you should pick this up and give it a go. I don't think  you will be disappointed. Read Full Review

    Essentially, 'Indestructible Hulk' has been fairly simple so far, yet there's been so much character development in so little time. We're getting used to this new Bruce Banner and we're getting to see the heroic side of the Hulk that was suppressed for so long by receiving these one off stories sprinkled with long-term tidbits that will result in the new status quo down the line. It's like an old reliable sitcom that you can flip on whenever you're looking for something to entertain you for a while at any time. The quality continues to be solid and the art is a great compliment to the excellent story that's unfolding. I'd definitely call this book a superhero comic at it's finest. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Kyle Mc Feb 5, 2013

    There are two sides to Leinil Yus work not only in this issue but the series itself. One the one hand when its just two people sitting there and talking it is overall pretty bland. However on the much more positive hand his action sequences where there are explosions and a lot of Hulk its great. Yu possibly draws the best Hulk that Ive ever seen. An extra positive is that hes not wearing that stupid armour that was present in #2. Read Full Review

    Hyper Geeky - ClumsyG Jan 28, 2013

    Overall, there's a lack of real tension and without an imminent threat — Hulk, so far, has fought one-off battles that he has won — the first few issues that will likely make up the first volume of Indestructible Hulk has hit a plateau that will hopefully spike up in the next issue with a bigger and better villain, or with some important developments. Origin stories set up for major plotlines, and it's apparent that Waid is moving the story somewhere. What Indestructible Hulk #3 lacks is a juicy plot line or twist foreshadowing what's to come.

    Geeks Unleashed - Christopher Romero Jan 20, 2013

    Leinil Yu's artwork is fantastic. His portrayal of Hulk is edgy and rugged; this just might be the best drawn Hulk I've ever seen. He magnifies this by offering up a couple of explosive splash pages, focusing on Hulk's no-bs attitude when he's in fight mode. Oh, and Director Hill is looking better and better with each issue"it'll be interesting to see how her work-relationship evolves with Banner. This book is a step up from the last two issues, and worth checking out. Read Full Review
