That's what happens when you try to control chaos.

Immortal Hulk #21

By: Al Ewing, Joe Bennett
Released: Jul 17, 2019

As the smoke from last issue clears, General Fortean makes a fateful decision. There can be no more half measure. No weapon is off the table. Force must be met with equal force. This is a war without rules... and SHADOW BASE is going to win.

Gamma-spawn don't stay dead. It is the main theme of this series. So, what was Fortean's "endgame" going to be? Admittedly, the ABOMINATION's stomach-acid proved to be a formidable weapon, but gamma-spawn don't stay dead...especially THE IMMORTAL HULK.

Finding out how a man who claims to be instilling order ends up becoming a full-blown pawn of chaos is revealing. Fortean's successful more

A rare instance of not fully loving this comic. The stuff in Gamma Hell was muddled and borderd on incoherent, and the events on Earth were unusually hard to make much sense of. I also don't feel like Red Harpy Betty is being written with much consistency. I wonder what went wrong here after so many great issues.

Immortal Hulk #20

Bruce Banner is being hunted on two fronts by two dead loved ones turned nightmarish, implacable foes. The stage is set for a brutal three-way confrontation between the ABOMINATION... the HARPY ...and the IMMORTAL HULK.

• 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?

IMMORTAL HULK # 19 is the first time the short, 2-week interval between issues has affected the book, detrimentally: the art is uneven and the story is unfocused.
The inkers aren't on the same page, which gives this issue an uneven, rushed quality to it. Although the Betty-Harpy sequence is fairly consistent, this should have been a book primarily about The ABOMINATION versus The Immortal Hul more

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

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

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.
