The art in this run is a joy to behold. Story wise, there's a lot to like but the ongoing throw downs with Rogol Zaar which always end abruptly are becoming a running gag. Jor-El's existence in the story line is being retconned, no longer caused by Dr. Manhatten. The course correction from Rebirth/Doomsday Clock is bumming me out.

Good issue- the twist at the end piqued my interest. Is Bruce's mother or Flashpoint Thomas Wayne's beloved in the box?
Still can't explain what happened between Knightmares and this. Will #71 ever be explained?

Immortal Hulk #19

By: Al Ewing, Joe Bennett

• 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?

Good issue but the events of #71 are still a puzzle. I'm giving King the benefit of the doubt to see if he can land this. I've really enjoyed his run until the Knightmares arc. Everything since feels like a disjointed mess. It's royally cheesing me off!
