The Immortal Hulk

The Immortal Hulk

Issues: #1-6

Writer: Al Ewing

Artist:  Joe Bennett  Covers: Alex Ross

Publisher: Marvel Comics

I love a good horror comic.  When I heard that the reboot of the Hulk was going to have a horror slant to it, I had to check it out.  The thing is, I’m not much of a Hulk fan.  The only Hulk comic I have read is Future Imperfect by George Perez.  I just never liked the Hulk.  After reading the first six issues of The Immortal Hulk, I’m now a Hulk fan.

So is the Hulk, and I like how Ewing gives a nod at the Hulk only coming out at night.

The horror of the Hulks actions is done right, it stays in the mind of the reader.

The Immortal Hulk  is my favorite Marvel comic on the stands at the moment.  Ewing and Bennet have crafted a really, really good story so far. I’ve enjoyed it so much that I have gone back and started to read the Incredible Hulk and Tales to Astonish runs on Marvel Unlimited to catch up on my Hulk history.

The art is fantastic, I like how Bennet makes the Hulk look a little more like a monster they way Ditko and Kirby originally drew him.
