the green death reviewed Immortal Hulk #2 Jul 4, 2018

Very dark take on the Hulk, this reads like an intelligent horror comic and nothing at all like Pak’s Totally Awesome run (which I also enjoyed, but for very different reasons). The art and writing compliment each other well, really hope we get quite a few issues like this before the next dramatic tonal shift.

Immortal Hulk #2

By: Al Ewing, Joe Bennett
Released: Jul 4, 2018

A random small-town tragedy. A mystery illness that spreads with grief. A green glow on a lonely mountain. Three puzzle pieces that fit together to make a nightmare. And the only mind on Earth than can connect them up...belongs to the Immortal Hulk.

Another one-issue story, great art, a sense that Ewing gets Bruce Banner, and a feeling this is going somewhere. If only I was sure that this version of the Hulk was going to work long term.

Cardboard characters playing out info dumps. This is what happens when you get your news from sensationalistic websites and news shows: superficial and undifferentiated hyperbole and phantasies about hyperviolence and civil war. Though it's a clever business move by Ales Kot to drop this at a time of peak-alarmism and Trump-Tweet-journalism. I can feel the hate, alright. (Not to say this can't tur more
