    Walt Simonson and Mark Waid are a perfect combination for Indestructible Hulk. This is what comic books are all about. Read Full Review

    As for this issue, it struck all the right chords for me. Waid and Simonson can do all the Hulk and Thor comics they want and I'd by one happy fanboy. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Apr 3, 2013

    As previously stated, Walter Simonson's name on the cover should be enough to sell this issue. Simonson drawing Thor just seals the deal. This issue is a thing of beauty, a paneled alter that we should all be worshipping at. Page after page, I found myself gently wiping drool from my chin. That's right, Indestructible Hulk #6 is so good it'll make you drool. There's your cover quote, Marvel. The only complaint I can levy at this thing is a small one: I kind wish Hulk's armor would have opened up, like it did in previous issues. Hulk just doesn't quite feel as big as I want him to feel in this issue. But really, other than that, this thing is damn near perfection. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Matt Sargeson Apr 9, 2013

    The idea of Bruce Banner leading a scientific expedition to Jotunheim was always likely to bear entertaining fruit but the presence of Waid and Simonson working together to realise it is a real treat. I consistently find Indestructible Hulk to be one of the more interesting and enjoyable books to come out of Marvel NOW and this issue is no exception. If for Simonson's art alone, this story arc is definitely one you should consider picking up. Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - James Hannon Apr 5, 2013

    The storyline in this comic is full of fun, and there are a number of very humorous moments. There is also a lot of good action, and it is dealt with excellently by the artist. It is clear the whole time what is going on, and the images are quite memorable. The ending of this comic is also something that will be widely discussed and debated over the coming weeks. There are so many possibilities for what happened, and it is truly a topic of intrigue Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Apr 8, 2013

    Overall, Indestructible Hulk #6 is the introductory chapter of this story, which means there are some big questions that are left unanswered at issue's end, but the big revelation teased on the cover is somewhat overshadowed by other mysteries Waid planted along the way. There's nothing wrong with that, but it dulls the excitement of the final page, for sure. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay Apr 4, 2013

    "Indestructible Hulk" #6 is the sort of thing comics needs more of because it's fantastically written, perfectly illustrated and a definite clear jumping on point for any reader who just wants to enjoy a superhero comic. This is hammer smashing fun, has a handful of great beats, Thor's dialogue is so much fun and Simonson with Mossa colors is just a delight for the eyes. It doesn't matter if you missed the first arc, get in on this and see how good superhero comics can be. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Michael Bowie Apr 6, 2013

    Now, this was a relatively light book on the Hulk side, but that seems to be out of necessity. First, Banner is without question needed in the first half to get all the pieces in place for the rest of the story. Then second, the peculiar interaction between Banner and Thor is a clear set up of things to come in the next two issues. Hulk, however, does show up in time to do what he does best, and more importantly, to feature on the last page of the issue and give me my biggest smile of the issue. I'm not going to spoil it for you here, but if you picked up the pieces I laid out for you here, you can probably guess it, if you want. Bottom line? Hulk + Thor + Simonson = SMASH!!!

    Imagination Centre - John McCubbin Sep 4, 2013

    Although not the best issue in the series, this was a brilliant start to the three part story that features the God of Thunder. It was also very interesting, and had a slightly shocking surprise, which is making me look forward to the next issue even more. I would really recommend this issue, as if you're a fan of either Thor, or Hulk you'll love it, and although I've personally not read Simonson's work on Thor, I'm sure that people who liked it will love this.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Apr 6, 2013

    Thor's appearance is not to my liking. I've simply never cared about Thor, especially not classic Thor. He's really just around because of Walt Simonson. And by all means, I have no problem celebrating Walt Simonson. But like I said, I can't decide if the art is a bad addition to the series, or a good one. I'm sure most people will love it.

    Read Comic Books - Nick Rowe Apr 3, 2013

    On top of all that, Hulk continues to be a wonderfully meaty read, unable to be devoured in mere minutes. Far too many comics forget the importance of plentiful dialogue or narration, Hulk is not one of them. Although it is a page turner, each page is a feast in and of itself between Waids wit and Simonsons scrumptious art, a supreme force to be reckoned with has been delivered to comic store shelves. An expense of $3.99, (plus tax where applicable), will satiate even an endless comic craving, only to reignite that belly fire by the concluding page. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Apr 8, 2013

    There are a lot of ways that Mark Waid and Marvel could have screwed up the momentum they've been building on Indestructible Hulk, which is why it's so heartening to see that they've banked into Simonson's talent and history so shrewdly. They're not just playing to his strengths, they're playing to his greatest hits, and they're tapping into that crossover-friendly zeitgeist that the Avengers movie cultivated in today's fandom. Combined with a cliffhanger that's as intriguing as it is pure fan-baiting, it's nice to see that even with a new artist on board, Indestructible Hulk is still coming out swinging. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Danny Djeljosevic Apr 10, 2013

    Mark Waid's script is the first of a three-parter, but he fills the pages with enough to make this not feel decompressed -- there's character interaction, fighting and a worthy cliffhanger. Come to think of it, Waid's another cat who makes it seem so goddamn effortless. Read Full Review
