one of the best books out currently and consistently, almost 20 issues and not a bad one yet

Immortal Hulk #19

By: Al Ewing, Joe Bennett
Released: Jun 12, 2019

• Something is coming for Bruce Banner. Something that can smell him wherever he hides. Something that will never stop hunting.
•  It wears the face of a friend - but all it feels is hate and hunger, burning in the core of every cell.
•  Ask yourself...what's more terrifying than the IMMORTAL HULK?

"I am not"

I've been reading this one since issue one, so I like to think that I am pretty used to disturbing imagery Joe Bennet is serving with every issue.

Yet seeing Hulk like this, defeated and helpless, was really something. And what Betty/Harpy did to him was truly unexpected.
I like what Al Ewing did with her. She's intelligent, vicious and compassionate(?). And more

"Wow"

This issue was below any expectations that I developed for the current creative team.

The art ranged from a decent one to a rather bad one. The story itself wasn't that far behind.
Aside from one nice moment involving Diana's lasso and some frog-like monsters, the rest of the issue is pretty forgettable.

"Why does the man even have a bed?"

This annual was pretty great... right up till that final showdown. It felt kinda cheap and wasn't really satisfying. But the road to that was superb.

The art was fantastic. Both teams did an excellent job, but Travis Moore and Tamra Bonvillain outdid themselves here. Even that final fight, bland as it was, looked just gorgeous.
>But the best part of this annual is hands down, the dialogue between Bruce and Alfred. Alfred's quick and sharp wit is flawless and gives a nice balance to Bruce's more serious demeanor. But the billionaire playboy didn't want to be left far behind and managed to slip in some jokes too.

If Peter Tomasi ever wants to write a comic book with Bruce and Alfred just exchanging one witty remark after another, I am there. Seriously. more
