The Good: It was only 20 pages.
The Bad: Pretty much everything else. The art is pretty much embarrassing at this point. I mean – check this out:
Really? Are they only giving Portacio 3 1/2 minutes to draw the entire issue? And Aaron has proven to be a force in writing the Hulk – but in the opposite way as people are dropping this title like crazy. The next storyline – which can’t possibly be as inept as this one was – will be “Stay Angry”. The Hulk needs to stay angry – or something bad will happen… like Aaron will keep writing him for the next 5 years. Here’s the thing – People will always like terrible comics – it’s an anomaly that can’t be explained – there are still people who proudly claim how much they liked Bruce Jones run even though Marvel actually hired PD to erase the damage done to the Hulk mythos by Jones. That was Tempus Fugit for anyone not in the know…
I just hope to see a collaboration that works on the Hulk soon. I’ve seen the art for the new storyline – and I am not very enthusiastic about it. If Aaron can actually pull together a story that actually makes sense then I would be willing to give it a recommendation. We’ll have to see. Grade: F
