    The debut of Weapon H provides quite the conundrum. While many comics, movies, TV shows, etc. suffer from being a great idea with poor execution, Weapon H is exactly the opposite. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Alex Henning Mar 29, 2018

    This was a pretty decent first issue for such a silly concept. Weapon H basically function as a mix of Banner and Wolverine, hiding and trying to avoid society like Banner, but relentlessly attacking as Weapon H like Wolverine. The book actually manages to make this concept into something interesting that may just work. The writing is done well, the dialogue feels real, and the art is actually pretty good. Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - soshillinois Mar 21, 2018

    Cory Smith, the main story's artist does a fantastic job of distinguishing the book's style from the more gonzo action of the main Hulk book with Amadeus Cho. Where that book is more of a super-science monster action book, this one has more of a horror movie meets Bill Bixby Hulk vibe and it works really well. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Mar 21, 2018

    The team has done a solid one here with a story that gives us some tropes and a blending of what we've seen before but does it all in such a way that it's still entertaining. It feels like a story that honors what has come before in many ways. This may be a comic that felt like no one was asking for but what has been delivered is something I want to see where it goes.

    One way or the other, sales will surely tell. After all, every issue of "Weapons of Mutant Destruction" sold out blazingly fast " so, really, it was a given that they'd go ahead and try to capitalize on that success. Will the concept, in the end, prove to have legs? On the face of it, you wouldn't think so. But in the hands of talented creators, maybe even a Hulkverine can find a home" Read Full Review

    The Hulkverine is here to stay in "Weapon H" #1, and the book's creative team make a compelling point for him to do so. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Mar 23, 2018

    Weapon H #1 is a very flawed yet surprisingly enjoyable comic. The lead has some potential for fleshing out. The action is fun. Smith and Hollowell make it all look great. I surprisingly finding myself recommending it. Check it out. Read Full Review

    411Mania - RobF Mar 29, 2018

    A story that shouldn't work does work due to combination of Pak's writing and the above average art. It needs some fleshing out but there is enough here to recommend and make me want to read more. Read Full Review

    I was really impressed when I read this issue. In the last years, marvel was infested by teenager social justice propaganda, and as a man who grew up reading marvel comics in the 80', I decided to put aside everything that came from the company. In this particular case, I was expecting an empty story, with a hallow character and no plot at all; just blood and senseless action.

    But Weapon H was, without a doubt, a very big and pleasant surprise.

    The lead character, Clay, is a man with honor and a good heart, and is trying his best to stay put so his wife and children can stay safe. And even wanting to isolate himself, he can't help to aid those in need, because it is his nature. He doesn't do that because "it's cool", o more

    Welcome to the Oblivion Bar where the first round is on me and the pretzels are free! Be warned: like the pickled eggs at the bar, this issue is going to get SPOILED rotten.

    So, have you ever got your fanboy on and wondered what would happen if Hulk also had the adamantium claws and bones like wolverine? I can hear it now; “DUDE!!!! Wouldn’t that be.. you know.. like so Shhhhway!?!?” Well, if so, this looks like the book for you then. And, it’s written by someone who knows Hulk pretty well in Greg Pak.

    We don’t find out much other than the guy, Clay, was in the military, has a wife and two kids, was declared dead about 9 months ago, but was operated on by the weapon x people splicing his DNA with Hulk and w more
