The insane Smashfest that is "World War Hulk" continues! The Hulk has never been angrier or stronger or more certain of the vengeance he seeks against Mr. Fantastic, Iron Man, Dr. Strange, and Black Bolt, the four so-called "heroes" who exiled him into space. But can he survive a merciless assault by one of his oldest and most implacable opponents? What defense can he muster when Dr. Strange unleashes the full power of the Sorcerer Supreme? And who will survive when the Hulk's best friend on Earth clashes with the Hulk's first ally from Sakaar?

    Possibly the best and most entertaining read of the summer. The Hulk hasnt read or looked this good in a very long time. Read Full Review

    I will try not to spoil too much about this issue, but it is basically a throw back to the old General Thunderbolt Ross days for the first part of the issue while simultaneously giving us some back story for the uninitiated. The bulk of the issue concerns the final Illuminati member and his attempt to dissuade the Hulk. This member has some awesome moments and his splash page at the end of the issue is incredible to say the least.

This issue also tells us what Hulk is planning to do with the captured heroes. It seems Hulk brought a lot of compliance discs from his gladiator days in Planet Hulk and he has his army building an arena for our viewing pleasure. WWH keeps building more and more momentum each month and I honestly see it delivering the goods after these first three issu Read Full Review

    Greg Pak has definitely provided a very entertaining and enjoyable summer blockbuster. I have really been intrigued by World War Hulk since its beginning, and I think Pak still has a few surprises in store. I think it would be great if he leads the story on to seem very predictable with the Sentry and all and then just throws something totally different in the mix. This was my favorite issue of the series thus far. Sure, I brought up a lot of questions and pointed out a few things, but a well-written and well constructed comic book in the middle of a big event should do that. The writing, the artwork and the timing of this series is superb. Read Full Review

    Huh? Who? Talk about an obscure reference to take the threat level up quite a few notches. I like the choice for its surprise factor, even if I did have to Wikipedia it to find out just who the hell Strange was drinking. (That will make sense if you read the comic) At the same time, though: Huh? Who?So, all in all, I have to go with 3.5 Bullets, with the option to upgrade to 4 later, when the series is complete, if theres actually some sort of thematic point to the whole exercise. If theres not, then at least its big and flashy, with lots of people hitting each other, and lots of things blowing up. Read Full Review

    I cant deny that Im intrigued to see how this all plays out, and its good to see the series begin to move beyond the admittedly enjoyable if simple formula that characterised the earlier issues. As part of a whole, this issue will likely stand as an important transitional episode in the story, and one which is executed with the same quality as the previous instalments. Just dont expect the same superficially satisfying slugfest of a story that weve seen in earlier issues. Read Full Review

    World War Hulk #3 was an average read. There isn't much substance to this story at all. However, if you are an action fan then you will absolutely love this mini-series. And Hulk fans will obviously love this mini-series. However, non-Hulk fans who were thinking of giving this mini-series a try since it is a big event in the 616 Universe may not find this story all that interesting. World War Hulk is good mindless fun and as long as you know that going in then you might get a kick out of this mini-series. Read Full Review
