Incredible Hulk #601 - Mini Review

Incredible Hulk #601

WRITER: Greg Pak Fred Van Lente
PENCILS: Ariel OlivettiMichael Ryan

He’s back! Well not really actually.

This was pretty much what I expected, it’s a fun ride with great art by Olivetti, but his style is very much love it or hate it. After a long time of just the Hulk it’s really good just to have Banner back. There are some great scenes between the smartest men in the Marvel U as they discover that the Hulks Gamma is missing from Banners blood stream. Other highlights include Banner coming to the rescue of a young boy who is about to get a beating from an abusive father and another where Bruce come face to face with his own son Skaar and decides to help train and prepare him for the inevitable return of Hulk. Cool idea. Next issue will feature Skaar vs. the Juggernaut! Awesome.

The back up feature starring the Savage She Hulk feels like you have landed right in the middle of the story, which is off putting. I have no idea what is going on and who any one is but it was quite fun nonetheless.

3.5 out of 5

  1. The All New Savage She-Hulk backup pretty much is the middle of a story, throwing in the current story as part of the ongoing resolution of her mini where she became an agent of ARMOR and the ramifications from her encounter with norman osborn and such
