So, yeah… I know this review is a bit late – a few days late – but, to be honest, I wasn’t all that jazzed about the issue. The art of Dale Eaglesham was not my favorite – a real downgrade from Pelletier – and I hate to say it – but even the story was leaving me underwhelmed. I mean, maybe it’s a direct result of the new… different art style – maybe it’s because it’s the start of a new storyline and it’s just getting going but either way I finished reading the issue and I am not all that excited to see where the next issue leads.
Basically, the Hulk is being treated for his injuries from the fight with Zeus. The Hulk isn’t really into being treated – or into a recovery – or into being the Hulk… anymore – I think, anyways. But Hulk gets a message about heading to the Savage Land – and that’s where he heads off to – leaving behind everyone except Skaar, Korg, Elloe and No-Name.
They arrive to a dinosaur attack which Hulk immediately leaps into action – but also immediately gets bitten by another humongous reptile. Ka-Zaar has to help the Hulk out – mainly due to his loss of power from the Zeus beat down Hulk is now… well, kind of a pussy. Sorry for the spicy language – but he totally reminded me of a cat. Wait – what did you think I meant?
Later that night as the whole crew sleeps – the bugs come and take Hulk away – to the bigger, stronger Miek – who, as he says, has something NEW to fight for. I mean – not a bad issue in total – just not all that interesting of a way to start a new storyline off. Grade: C+
