Señor Smokey dropped Immortal Hulk from their pull list May 20, 2021

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.

First time ever reading anything Captain Marvel. This surprised me. The premise and the fact that Doctor Strange and Carol banged is enough to keep me interested. Wasn't enough action but from what I've read, the previous arc had quite a bit and that doesn't seem to be the focus in this story. Can't wait for the next issue.
