the green death reviewed Incredible Hulk #709 Oct 18, 2017
8.5

I never read Planet Hulk (need to add it to my Marvel Comics Unlimited list) but this story still works for me. It's Hulk put into the world of Mad Max with added monsters - who wouldn't have fun? I know Land is a controversial artist and I run hot and cold on him but find this to be on the better end of my enjoyment spectrum with him.

I think this greatest hits storyline has been a lot of fun so far and this part is no exception. It's not deep but it's a ton of oldschool fun, I only wish we'd had another Art Adams cover for this issue.

The issue is largely set-up but it's very solid and interesting set-up and I prefer Cable as part of a team than solo and this oddball team he's building looks like they could have some strange and entertaining adventures.

I honestly liked Sam as Falcon and was a little bummed (though not surprised) that he wouldn't be keeping his position a little longer. Still this was a great first issue that keeps the political heat Spencer brought, adds a good sidekick, includes strong character work.

I have never been a huge fan of Daken. He seemed a product very much of his time, with the look, name, and powers. Much like Cable and Deadpool were also representative of their time.

I haven't followed any of Waid's Avengers since the first 0 issue. I did read the first few issues of Champions and enjoyed them fine.

It's dark and funny and really absurd in how seriously it takes itself. A very good one shot and definitely one not to be missed if you have even a passing interest in the idea of these two characters meeting. The second story is also quite a hoot and makes me want to see Tom King write another straight up gag comic as he has skills in that "not as easy as it looks" department.

I have been looking forward to this all year and I wasn't disappointed. King writes such a tortured Elmer Fudd and re-imagines the Looney Tunes cast in a realistic, gritty setting. The second story was just as good but is more Looney Tunes show inspired. Both stories are fantastic and showcases Tom King's range as a writer.

I didn't expect many answers going in, after all this is a midway point for a two year storyline.
