Peter David's tour de force through some of his greatest Hulk hits continues with a return to JOE FIXIT! Gone are the ripped-up shorts of the Hulk of yore-this enforcer prefers the slick suave of a striped suit, and the Hulk has traded in "monster" for "mobster" as he lends his strength to the Las Vegas casino scene. Of course, the Kingpin has his own ideas about who the toughest guy in town is, and it's up to Spider-Man to keep the two of them from destroying Sin City!

    JOE FIXIT #1 is a lean issue where the narrative is concerneda quarter of it is basic Joe Fixit exposition and almost half of it is a fight. But appreciation and for the character is ultimately driving the series. As a result the first issue doesn't need to be more than simply a fun read to be effective. And in that regard it succeeds.

    At the end of the day, nostalgia is the name of the game. This book is purely made to cater to fans of this era and it does its job. The story is fun and fans of Peter Davids other books like this will definitely enjoy this one. Read Full Review

    Joe Fixit #1 is a good reintroduction to the character and the start of what could be an intriguing dust-up in Las Vegas. I can't say the story is all that complex, nor are its characters, but if you're looking for a nostalgic return of a character introduced in 1986, it's a good start. Read Full Review

    Your enjoyment of the issue is likely going to be somewhat tempered by your nostalgia of David's previous run with the character. If you are hitting this version for the first time it likely won't have the impact of longtime Hulk fans. However, even if you didn't bring your rose-colored 80s glasses, there's plenty to enjoy here as we, like Spidey, get to sit back and watch Mister Fixit totally dominate the Kingpin and send him angrily packing.

    The script moves along quickly, and Cinar's lineart is the perfect combination of 90s era Fixit goodness with an added modern-day sheen. Still, it's evident this book doesn't really know what it wants to be just quite yet. Read Full Review

    If you love Joe Fixit (and I do!) then you'll be in heaven. If you love Peter David (and I do! btw he's not doing well, if you can help he has a go fund me) you'll be in heaven. If you are a mild fan of either you will be pleasantly surprised how fun this book is. If you hate either one....WTF!? Go read a Meghan Fitzmartin book, it's what you deserve.

    To be honest, I think there could be no better timing to read it, than actually before Immortal Hulk #17...

    Well, I thought it was made for Hulk fans, but it feels more like for Spider-Man fans. So, who is UltimateGoblin? Is he Hulk fan or Spider-Man fan... Or is he both? I'm both, so that was awesome.

    The art is simple and easy-going, but not on a "marvel adventures" level. It's well-drawn, but not over-drawn. I can't describe it, this comic reads just like I need it after all these philosophical Immortal Hulk dialogues.

    This comic is a pure fan-service. It could be fine even as a one-shot, but it seems David builds something larger. I will certainly read next issues when they come out and I recommend you t more

    Fantastic, this issue was a lot of fun. Exciting to see kingpin get his ass handed to him, which doesn’t happen very often.

    A great first issue, but I think PAD didn't understand the assignment since this is like 60 percent Spidey and only 20 percent Joe. Great art.

    The front half will be painfully slow for readers that are already familiar with Joe Fixit.

    But for readers who come in with only vague notions about Joe, this is a perfect introduction.

    The art is solid journeyman work all the way through, and once it's (finally) done with its exposition, the script trots along nicely. A good opening plot point is nailed down, the story to come looks promising, and there's even some sharp dialogue to enjoy.

    It's a good comic provided you keep the intended audience in mind.

    The cover is far from dynamic but the story toddles along at a decent pace, with credible dialogue and competent interior artwork from Cinar. Difficult to see how they will deliver a full miniseries with such a narrow premise but its in the pull list and David is always worthwhile.
