Hulk Visionaries: Peter David – Volume 6 (2009)

Hulk Visionaries: Peter David - Volume 6

We are getting to the real meat of Peter David’s early run.  When the Grey and Green Hulk merge with Banner into a new  Hulk persona.  One that has the brains of Bruce – the snarky attitude of the Grey Hulk – and the strength of the Green Hulk.  I wish Loeb would’ve taken a cue from David – he knew how to build up an event – while at the same time telling self contained stories in each issue that both added to the overall story and entertained as well.  This trade contains #373 – #382 – 9 issues of Hulk greatness with only one small problem… it’s $29.99!  What the hell!?!  Every TPB before this was a great price of $19.99 – this one is $10 MORE!  What the double heck!  That’s not right!  Hopefully this isn’t a starting trend of trade prices.  But this trade is so worth it – this run is where Keown really starts to shine – but we also have some great fill in issues like Jaaska’s hilarious #378 vs. Rhino!  And lastly, this is also the beginning of the Hulk leading the Pantheon.  It was a storyline that definitely ran its course with me – ended just in time – but I always liked the way it started.
