AFINO reviewed Immortal Hulk #12 Jan 24, 2019
8.5

The absence of Walter Langkowski, Carl (Bushwhacker) Burbank, and Shadow Base is noticeable this time. Even though the main conflict is still compelling, it was the exceptional character moments in the previous issue that gave it the groundedness it needed. Here, in IH # 12, it's not as effective. Hope Judd, Creel, McGee, (and Walter) get through this. Disturbing, partly in a good way, partly in more

Immortal Hulk

HORROR HAS A NAME.
You'd never notice the man. He doesn't like to be noticed. He's quiet. Calm. Never complains. If someone were to walk up and shoot him in the head... all he'd do is die.
Until night falls. And someone else gets up again.
The man's name is Banner.
The horror is THE IMMORTAL HULK.

The only person shown to dismiss Jackie's anger is The Hulk, in IMMORTAL HULK # 5...with the most stinging rebuke possible from the person responsible for destroying her old neighborhood: "Just...go home, McGee. Go home."

The conversation between Jackie and The Hulk is much more personal than a lot of people realize, not really a civil rights manifesto. Her childhood home was destroye more

"HULK IN HELL" PART ONE!
•  Jackie McGee is in hell. Carl Creel is in hell. Walter Langkowski is in hell. Eugene Judd is in hell. Carl Burbank is in hell.

I wanted to like The New World, but there isn't enough in it to like. After a promising start, there just isn't enough in this 5-issue limited series to make anyone want to spend a second more in this "New World."

Despite the grand scope of issue # 1 and the aftermath of a second Civil War only glimpsed, none of the important questions are answered in the next 4 issues: (1) What happ more

Super-strong, highly trained, armed with devastating and stealthy meta-human abilities, the Silencer is virtually invincible. Or at least she was.

I know that issue 3 is set to be released on September 12th---two weeks from the just-published issue 2, but I hope that if the creative team needs a little more time to fine-tune things so the fullest, most comprehensive vision of THE NEW WORLD is conveyed like it is in issue 1, IMAGE can give them that time. This is a comic book that has the potential to be one of the very best.

The United States of America-after the Second Civil War.
Two lovers meet. One: a straight-edge vegan hacker anarchist boy with a penchant for messing with the State. The other: a chaotic, hedonistic cop with a reality TV show and a license to kill. This really shouldn't happen-and yet, somehow,...
