Double-sized first issue! Exiled by a group of Marvel "heroes" to the savage alien planet of Sakaar, the Hulk raged, bled and conquered through the pages of last year's "Planet Hulk" epic, rising from slave to gladiator to king. Now the Hulk returns to Earth to wreak his terrible vengeance on Iron Man, Reed Richards, Dr. Strange and Black Bolt -- and anyone else who gets in his way. Stronger than ever, accompanied by his monstrous Warbound gladiator allies, and possessed by the fiercest and purest rage imaginable, the Hulk may just tear this stupid planet in half.

    Dont buy this expecting Civil War II. Buy this expecting something different and possibly even better. Read Full Review

    The only minor problem that I have with the book is that She-Hulk is helping to try and stop her cousin. Wouldnt you think given the events of Incredible Hulk #106 and the WW:Hulk Prologue that shed just let him go wild? Theres a bit of a disconnect there, given recent events, but it was not enough to take away from my enjoyment of this book whatsoever. Im definitely on board this crossover for the long haul.

    Despite my problems with the issue, I enjoyed this first instalment of World War Hulk as some refreshingly simple, straightforward superhero storytelling which doesnt have aspirations to be anything more than it is: a fun, exciting punch-up between super-powered individuals, with the city of New York as a playground for the larger-than-life slugfest that World War Hulk promises to be. It might not look like its going to offer any real character insight (I was disappointed that Bruce Banner didnt make an appearance) or even a particularly original story, but this miniseries is already shaping up to deliver the delicious Green sorbet that weve been promised after the gargantuan food fight that was Civil War.

    World War Hulk #1 was a fun start to what should be a wild paced and action packed mini-series. I'm not expecting anything profoundly deep. I'm just going to sit back and enjoy the Hulk's rage fueled rampage through the Marvel Universe. If you are an action freak then definitely give World War Hulk a try. Read Full Review

    The fight between the Hulk and Iron Man leads to the best moment of the first issue, where the jets missiles create a fiery flashback that lets the reader briefly into the mind of the Hulk and guarantees the green giants victory. While this may be very gratifying for any Hulk fans, or Stark haters, it really isnt enough to elevate the entire book to the epic story it aspires to be. Read Full Review
