In Case You Missed It… Part 25

Weeks ago the infamous “Immortal” covers were released on the public.  Above is Immortal Hulk #23 Covers which is one of the better ones, I give it a B-, some of the covers weren’t as great.  I didn’t bother picking up the Thing, Invisible Woman or Reed Richards cover – but the Human Torch cover was too good to leave on the shelf:

Easily an A grade cover.  Also the Punisher cover wasn’t too bad either.  The cover gets a solid B+:

The only cover I did pick up that wasn’t all that great was the Savage Avengers #5:

A C grade level finished product.  Don’t forget though – True Believers are having a Hulk-centric month!  Pick up Intelligent Hulk:

Where is Everyone Going?

Is Justice Beaver in town or something?  I love the little kid in the front of the pack too – is he leading the way?  Is everyone following him?

Any Info Would Help!

Pics of this Hulk has been circulating around the interwebs for a few months now.  Unfortunately, no one seems to have any information on when/how/or even where this will be available!  Besides the random person saying it will be exclusive to Amazon Mexico (which just sounds ridiculous!) no one is saying anything.  It makes me feel like this is not a real product.  I really do hope I’m wrong as I would love to add this figure to my collection – but I am real skeptical!

If anyone has REAL info with links I would love to know!  Leave it in the comments below!

With all that Gridlock…

I would probably choose to go by foot too…

Avengers: Endgame Funko Pop #451 Hulk Exclusive (2019)

With Ragnarok serving us with at least 3 different Pop exclusives I thought we were going to get a straight forward Hulk Pop release this time around.  Especially since the Hulk was such a minor part to the story as a whole.  Sure enough – a month or 2 after release and no announcement I thought we were in the clear… and then Hot Topic came along.  At least it’s another glow in the dark Pop which is my favorite kind of exclusive.

Of course, this was another Pop/T-shirt set.  In order to get the size I need I would have had to order the set on line but honestly, I don’t care about the shirt at all.  I saved a few bucks and just snagged the Pop off of eBay.  Besides the glow feature there is no real difference between this and the regular offering so it’s really only completists that need to seek this out.

Half Life: A Year’s Worth of Hulk 1st Appearances – Week 37

Nothing creepier than a dead (or half dead) person who cap sap the life from you.  You have to feel sort of bad for the guy.  He is delusional thinking he can even take on someone as powerful as the Hulk.  Ultimately, when the Hulk leaves him for dead we all know we haven’t seen the last of him… yet – we haven’t seen him since the late 80’s.

Last review I left off saying the this issue should be a doozy – and I was right!  I didn’t even know HOW right but I can confidently say that if you’re not reading this series by now you obviously don’t enjoy comics.  Well written, exciting, surprising and downright thrilling comics!  We left off with the Hulk (and Gamma Flight) bringing the fight to Fortean at Shadow Base.  We’ve all seen Fortean these last few issues seemingly losing his mind so now he has the opportunity to back up all that bravado with some action!

We begin, though, with a McGee flashback of the day that she first encountered the Hulk.  A scared little girl looking into the eyes of an angry, overgrown child.  Years later she is jumping into action with the Hulk and his family, Samson, Jones and Betty… well, a version of Betty.  As the family sets off on their mission the Hulk stays behind with Gamma Flight to distract Fortean and the gang!  Unfortunately for the gamma-crew it seems Fotean in fact does have back up plans for back up plans as every move they make is met with a swift and devastating counter move!

Early on it seems the gamma gang will pull this one out as Creel is able to figure out how NOT to get drugged and Hulk laughs off a direct threat.  Once the Hulk is hit with Solar Emitters it seems as though their best weapon is down for the count!  Until Puck, finally being useful for the first time in his super hero career, rips the literal brains out of the machines!

Dr. McGowan watches the carnage through the security cameras  and realizes she has brought this upon her and her team.  For once she begins to feel regret – not excitement for the gamma research and advances they’ve made – but relief that all the “science” she’s tampered with has finally come back for payback!  As Rick, Betty and McGee enter the lab they notice Del Frye in the corner.  McGowan informs them that she has been trying to ease his pain.  That saves her from an inevitable end at the hands of Jones.

Back at the Fortean fight, Samson is taken out, Creel and Titania are down for the count, followed quickly by Puck.  Hulk is the last one standing, and with a quick reguritiation of acid, Fortean believes he has won the fight.  That is until the Hulk rips off the melting skin, still ready to fight!

Wow, what an ending!  I thought when Betty ripped the Hulk’s heart out was gruesome – this might just top it!  Pick this issue up is you haven’t already and catch up on this series!
