Incredible Hulk: The Troyjan War (1994) – The Review

At some point in the PD run the Hulk was pretty indestructible.  He was super-smart, super strong and with a super secret powerful team that he lead.  Ultimately, Earth bound catastrophes were beyond him.  There was nothing they couldn’t handle – and sure,   What could take on the Hulk at this point? The IncredibleContinue reading “Incredible Hulk: The Troyjan War (1994) – The Review”

Sigs… The Hot Button Issue.

I am not sure how many times it’s brought up – at least a few dozen times a year – but no matter how many times it’s asked you always have two very opinionated sides.  No, I am not talking about politics – I am talking about signatures.  A while back Gary Miller was thinkingContinue reading “Sigs… The Hot Button Issue.”

Hulk Visionaries: Peter David – Volume 8 (2011)

Yes, that’s right – volume 8!  While I applaud Marvel for continuing this series going I do have to give a strong jeers to the fact that they are charging $29.99 – and have even stopped using the glossy paper stock.  Maybe they didn’t think anyone would notice – or more like; they don’t care. Continue reading “Hulk Visionaries: Peter David – Volume 8 (2011)”

Marvel Comics Presents #26 (1989) – The Review

Another Fixit story by Purves and David.  This little tale follows Fixit as he arrives to collect some money from a guy who owns a Sea World type amusement park called Maritime or something… anyways, the guy doesn’t have the money for Fixit so he offers up the park.  The Hulk asks why he’d wantContinue reading “Marvel Comics Presents #26 (1989) – The Review”

Ground Zero (1988) – The Review

Peter David gave us this absolute gem of a storyline. McFarlane helped with his amazing art in this one… and it would turn out to be his swan song for the Hulk. There’s an interesting behind the scenes story that made the rounds about McFarlane and David’s working relationship. The story goes: When David beganContinue reading “Ground Zero (1988) – The Review”

Hulk Visionaries: Peter David – Volume 6 (2009)

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 aContinue reading “Hulk Visionaries: Peter David – Volume 6 (2009)”

Dogs of War TPB (2005)

Peter David brought alot to the Hulk – he introduced some ideas to the mythology of the Hulk that defined the character for new generations and many generations to come.  Paul Jenkins almost burned that mythology to the ground… The idea of Banner suffering a multiple personality disorder was so out of left field andContinue reading “Dogs of War TPB (2005)”

Hulk Visionaries:Peter David – Volume 5 (2008)

This great collection may be hitting a speedbump.  I would be crushed.  It’s like discovering Peter David all over again!  But, back to that speedbump, this collection, which is volume 5, was supposed to be out at the end of January.  Than it was pushed back 2 weeks.  No big deal – except that IContinue reading “Hulk Visionaries:Peter David – Volume 5 (2008)”

The Incredible Hulk #372 & 376

There was no better time for a Hulk fan than the early 90’s.  Peter David was just hitting a creative stride, Hulk was selling better than ever, and Dale Keown had never made the Hulk look better.  I prefer the illustrations of this time period – (recent drawings seem to highlight a bunch of veinsContinue reading “The Incredible Hulk #372 & 376”

The Incredible Hulk vs. Fin Fang Foom

  (Spoilers!) Let me start off by saying that this is a verys short story – too short in fact – but it’s also a great read.  The comic starts off with Hulk wandering around Antartica getting very tired.  “Even Hulk gets tired…” he says before he collapses and falls asleep.  Then, he turns backContinue reading “The Incredible Hulk vs. Fin Fang Foom”

Wizard # 196 is Hulk-tastic!

Wizard #196 just hit the new-stands today – and it is filled with Hulk gems!  Not only do they interview the New Hulk Movie Director, Louis Leterrier, and Ed McGuinness on the upcoming Red Hulk comic – with an extra peek at some of his sketches (including a peek at the Abomination, who looks awesome), and while I’mContinue reading “Wizard # 196 is Hulk-tastic!”
