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.

Tl;dr The art, coloring and lettering were good and earned the only full points this issue merits.

Yeah, his take on Jon is a far cry from the great character a far better writer built up and developed. It reads as if bendis purposely misconstrued the work of more able people to force a ludicrous idea to fit into this book. I only hope his tenure on Action Comics and Superman is short.

myconius - Jul 5, 2018

Bendis's take on Jon is just horrible!!! did not like the treatment at all. it is pretty sad that Jurgens and Tomasi rescued Superman from the awful interpretation we were getting from the New 52, only to each be booted off their books at the 50 issue mark. any idea what they are planning to do with Tomasi or Jurgens now that they are no longer writing Superman?

Not a fan of what Bendis is doing. I was afraid that he would end up destroying some of the things that make Superman unique and great, and it looks like, I was right. He doesn't know how to deal with Superman having a wife and child, so he finds a way to get them out of the picture, while avoiding the backlash he would have received for permanently getting rid of them.

Maybe it’s an exaggeration to call this issue disastrous as it’s decently written and has spectacular art. But it gets Superman and the Superman family all wrong.u
How stupid it is that Superman lets his recently resurfaced father take his son on a trip to the galaxy? Yes, the boy wants to go, which is also totally out of character for Jonathan, who has as good a relationship with mom and more

Brilliant writing as expected from Jason Aaron. I loved the Jane Foster as Thor saga, however I hope this is a long run for Thor as Thor. Everything is in place for an epic run.
My only reservation is Mike del Mundo. I find him an acquired taste. His visuals are beautiful and striking, but their allucinatory dreamlike feel wears out its welcome fast for me.

There is really nothing that great about X-Men Blue #30. What was being pushed as a big issue with the reveal of Jimmy'S codename is painfully average. The entire post-Mothervine writing so far has been below the height that was reached in Mothervine. The Search for Jimmy Hudson is a through away story at best. It has a touch of drama and forced action. The art is fine, but ultimately the last two more

Cullen Bunn has been mostly great on X Men Blue, however this is the worst issue of the serie, which is no surprise coming as the finale from the worst storyline.
The Venomized story was cool while it lasted but it has dragged on too long and the Wolverine Venom Poison symbiote that took control is just ludicrous. Maybe another artist could have made it striking but the art has been abysmal a more

Fun, bright and colorful, but not enough to keep things interesting in the long run.
The gimmick which forces the character to be together or else they will die was good for the first few issues, but now the team needs a more powerful reason to stay together, which makes them look heroic and not just excentric.
There is not a lot of depth to the characters, which Lemire seems to want to more

The worst fears about Bendis materialize in this issue in which pretty much nothing happens.
Superman is made to look surprisingly passive in his dealings amd fights with Rogol Zaar, whose whole quest for vengeance looks disjointed and vague. The backstory is not rich and powerful enough for him to be a compelling villain.

Half of the issue feels like filler, as pages and pages happen between Nova receiving an urgent call for help from the Nova Cprps and he enlisting the help from his fellow Champions.
Warbringer is a very cheesy character and he is the main villain, which doesn’t help. I’m not a fan of the Champions, and the book under Waid suffered from seeming a Kids cartoon. With Zub now, that is still more

An overconfident second issue. The story and the set up are fascinating and there is some promising world building by Snyder. However, your second issue introducing new non costumed character is not the best to send them in an underwater mission in which you can’t tell who is who for most of the story. It is all very confusing and a recap of what happened last issue would have been most welcome more
