    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Jun 19, 2013

    This is easily my favorite issue this week and I have yet to read everything in my pile. That's how downright enjoyable this chapter is. Waid's script is superb, the art is stellar, and the overall narrative manages to intrigue while still offering plenty of smiles and fun set pieces. This is a good jumping on point, so you should probably go ahead and do that if you're not currently reading this series. Seriously, do it. Read Full Review

    I have never been the biggest Hulk fan when it comes to his comics, but Mark Waid is making me change my perception of things on this matter. Read Full Review

    Stash My Comics - Leo Johnson Jun 20, 2013

    For new readers, this is a good book. Waid introduces the core concept of the series and the background information all within the first few pages, but makes it a part of the story. It doesn't feel like it was put there because it had to be, but rather because that's what belonged there. Read Full Review

    Den Of Geek! - Marc Buxton Jun 23, 2013

    As unlikely as a Hulk/Daredevil team-up may seem, Mark Waid and Matteo Scalera not only pull it off, but make it seem perfectly natural in Indestructible Hulk #9! Read Full Review

    Both of these comics have become "must-reads" since Waid took the reins, and this one continues that trend. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Jun 19, 2013

    Matteo Scalera steps into the artist seat in this issue. His dramatic, scratchy style makes for killer set pieces, like a high-speed cab ride through the streets of New York or a violent battle in a bar affectionately referred to as the "Anti-Cheers." There are a few a moments in the issue's opening that are little difficult to track, but since these moments take place during a frantic, claustrophobic fight inside a battleship, it's slightly understandable. All in all, this is a gorgeous issue and another superb adventure of everyone's favorite indestructible hero. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Michael Bowie Jun 21, 2013

    If for some reason you aren't already reading this series, I think this may be the issue folks, especially if you already happen to be reading and enjoying Daredevil. Mark Waid is doing a fantastic job with this series and this may well be the best issue yet. And if it's not, then it's very close. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Tony Couto Jun 21, 2013

    Whether it be Thor or Daredevil, other heroes bring out the best in Bruce Banner. With Indestructible Hulk #9′s inclusion of Daredevil, Waid continues to prove that there is much to love about the volatile, arrogant being that is the Hulk. With every moment of laughter, Waid manages to add a layer of character growth to the Hulk, and the other characters he teams up with. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - kanchilr1 Jun 19, 2013

    Both writer and artist have struck the beginning of gold in these pages. If they can spend some time extended amounts of time together magic could happen here. One of the most disappointing parts of Marvel Now! has been how fast that artists change from issue to issue without getting a feel for the writer. This new direction for Hulk should be exploited to it’s fullest potential. Read Full Review

    Knowing Matt's feelings about S.H.I.E.L.D., I know that this team-up won't last forever, but I'm certainly going to enjoy reading it while it lasts, especially after that huge reveal on the last page. I don't want to give it away, but it really came out of nowhere and I'm super excited to see where things go with this particular character. Judging by Mark Waid's track record so far with this series, I doubt that it'll do anything less than blow us away. Read Full Review

    Imagination Centre - John McCubbin Sep 11, 2013

    This was a terrific issue, and although it's been one of the weaker Hulk issues in the last few, it was still very good, and a great start to this two part story. It also had some great action sequences, as well as some interesting, and dynamic moments, and really makes me want to read the next issue. Due to all this I'd still recommend this issue, as although it isn't the best issue to judge the series on, it was still a brilliant issue. Read Full Review

    Read Comic Books - Nick Rowe Jun 20, 2013

    As an introduction to either Hulk or Daredevil, this comic is an amazing starting point for comic fans on the fence about either title. Although Hulk is the star of the show, Daredevil is able to flex his new fun groove just as much making this a wonderful, fun filled read from cover to cover. Comics, superhero or otherwise, dont get much better than this folks. It may be issue 9, but it could be the beginning of a great time for any hungry comic fan. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jun 20, 2013

    The epitome of the team-up between Hulk and Daredevil comes in the form of a five-panel page, set up with the panels running widescreen and delivering a humor-tinged time-lapse as Daredevil tries to get some answers. Waid masterfully balances humorous moments like that with suspense, action and predicaments that truly challenge our heroes all while incorporating more and more of the Marvel Universe into the adventure. There's a lot going on in "Indestructible Hulk" #9, giving readers their money's worth and more. The best part of it all, however, is the fact that this is just part one. There's more Daredevil and Hulk coming up in the next issue. Read Full Review
