    Overall, Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker #1 is an excellent debut issue that the shows the vastness of this saga that started with Planet Hulk. The story by Pak is exciting. The art by the creative team is gorgeous. Altogether, a story that will have readers running to grab the second issue. Read Full Review

    Fans who loved Greg Pak's Planet Hulk and the stories that spilled from that must read Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker #1. It continues the story of Sakaar while exploring the dangers of vilifying a person for political gain. The series hasn't quite yet hooked me as far as why it must be told, but likely it's coming soon. Read Full Review

    So, if three issues in Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker doesnt clean up the plot, iron out the character motivations, establish depth and context with the main characters, or get this reviewer to feel any connection to the cast whatsoever, then Im totally out on this follow-up story to the classic Planet Hulk. But for now, Im still in on a short leash. And as single issues go, if I was new to Planet Hulk, Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker #1 wouldnt sell me on the series at all. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Dec 1, 2022

    Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker #1 sets up Sakaar for the future and Amadeus Cho's place in it to set the stage for the story to come. The narrative flow is clunky in spots, and you get the distinct impression Pak is using the setup as an allegory for real-world issues, but the story doesn't come together enough to make the message clear. Regardless, this first issue is all setup with a weak cliffhanger and a throwaway backstory that reads like an Animal Rights PSA. There's enough intrigue to get you to wonder what happened to Hulk, but this issue is not a strong start. Read Full Review
