Hulk:Season One

August 21, 2012 | Drew | (No Comments)

When it came to opening Hulk: Season One and reading it for the first time, i was unsure what to think or expect. like many of our hero’s the Hulk has evolved over the years, given both a deeper background, and understanding then what was possible in the early issues.

What I hoped to get what a good taste of that depth from over the years, but I knew it would come with a cost; the real question would be, if that cost would be worth it.

if you like you can go back and read the start of my review for Fantastic Four: Season One to get an understanding of how I decided to go about reviewing these volumes, or you can just dive right in, and see what I think. (more…)

Sgt. Fury And His Howling Commandos #7
The Court-Martial Of Sergeant Fury

August 13, 2012 | Drew | (No Comments)

With most of the comic book  I review the action takes place between the good guys and the bad guys, and is  fought with action, but this story is different. as Nick Fury defends his very life in the court room.  While there is some classic comic book action taking place in the pages of Sgt. Fury And His Howling Commandos #7  the heart of the story is in the courtroom drama of  “The Court-Martial Of Sergeant Fury”. 

This however leaves just one question to be responded to in this review,  and that is can this style of drama be done justice in the comic book medium of its time or is it a case of a dire crime worse than that of which our hero is faced? (more…)

Strange Tales #119
The Torch Goes Wild!

April 11, 2012 | Drew | (No Comments)

This comic book review is for the Human Torch Story from Strange Tales #119, Titled “The Torch Goes Wild!”.  But is this tale, featuring the unheard of Rabble Rouser good, or just Strange?

To summarize the tale, we have the Rabble Rouser, whom gets the city to turn against the torch, and if that’s not enough, it seems like everything in Johnny Storms personal life has been going wrong, making him not himself.   But what is really at work, and at play behind the scenes here? you will have to read it to find out.

Incredible Hulk #6
Vs. The Metal Master!

October 22, 2011 | Drew | (No Comments)

As I sat down to read Incredible Hulk #6, the last comic book of the original Incredible Hulk run, I wondered what kind of story I would be in for. Would it be a story suitable for the end of a series, and perhaps a character? would I feel a scene of conclusion?  Did they even know at the time of writing and publishing that this would be the last issue?

I can’t say or speculate at what they did or didn’t know. But as an ending,  I was quite satisfied. So read on and see how my comic book review of Incredible Hulk #6 went. and pick up the last of the original Incredible hulk’s in reprint and read it for yourselves in Incredible Hulk, Vol. 1 (Marvel Masterworks).  The collected volume includes all six issues of the original incredible hulk run.

Fantastic Four #12
The Incredible Hulk

October 19, 2011 | Drew | (1 Comment)

While some may say the shared universe for marvel comic book’s began long before this, in the golden age; or even say that the silver age shared universe began with Namor. but I believe this is when it began March 1963, With the Fantastic Four Vs. The Hulk.

Fantastic Four #12 is just one of the series crossovers that occurred this month. In this issue, we have our 4 fantastic heroes asked by the government to take out the hulk by General “Thunderbolt” Ross.

As much as Fantastic Four #11 was important for the Fantastic Four, Fantastic Four #12 is for the marvel universe.  before this there was only slight mentioning of other hero’s. now they meet face to face and fist to fist.

So who win’s , The Fantastic Four, or the Hulk? Read the story and you will see the real winner is us the readers. (more…)

Incredible Hulk #5
The Hordes of General Fang

October 8, 2011 | Drew | (No Comments)

The Hordes of General Fang! is the Second of two hulk stories in Incredible Hulk #5, Beauty and the Beast has its own review Here.

If you already read my review of Beauty and the Beast then you know that so far Incredible Hulk #5 did not inspire me greatly. Fortunately the 2nd tale featuring our favorite green hero was better than the first.

It both tied in event’s from  last issue, as well as  had some character development, be it not a lot.  The art did strike me as being a bit better this time around as well.  So all in all, The Hordes of General Fang! was a better read.

Incredible Hulk #4
Gladiator from Outer Space

September 27, 2011 | Drew | (1 Comment)

Gladiator from Outer Space is the Second of two hulk stories in Incredible Hulk #4, The The Monster and The Machine  has its own review Here.  

Incredible Hulk #4 is the halfway point of the original six issue run. With this issue it seems like Jack & Stan decided to try something a bit different, instead of telling one full issue story filled with everything we expect and hope for, they gave us two, both staring our favorite green machine. The Hulk.

Where the first story I feel focused on development, the second focused on incredible action and the ongoing conflict.  It is a great complement to the first issue. where that one focuses on building our characters up, this one uses what’s been built.

The dual story format is not all that different from last issue, where the one story read and felt like two. This time there is just a clearer break between the two. I found Gladiator from Outer Space a good read, and it was not what I expected.

Incredible Hulk #4
The Monster and The Machine

| Drew | (No Comments)

The Monster and The Machine is the first of two hulk stories in Incredible Hulk #4, The Gladiator from Outer Space has its own review Here.  

Incredible Hulk #4 is the halfway point of the original six issue run. With this issue it seems like Jack & Stan decided to try something a bit different, instead of telling one full issue story filled with everything we expect and hope for, they gave us two, both staring our favorite green machine. The Hulk.

The First story picks up where Incredible Hulk #3 left off. with Rick Jones being able to control the Hulk like a large living robot. The two story’s also complement each other quite well, The first giving us some great character development, the 2nd some much desired action and heroism.  (more…)

Incredible Hulk #3
Banished To Outer Space

September 8, 2011 | Drew | (1 Comment)

I subtitled this Banished to outer space, but that is really just the first story in this issue,  Incredible Hulk #3 featured 2 great story’s divided by a retelling of the origin for anyone whom may have missed it back in issue #1.  This time the origin is more from Rick’s perspective. Even if you know the hulks long view on some level, you might just find the events of this issue surprising. Seriously, if you’re a big Hulk fan, stop reading, and go read this issue now! you can read it in: Marvel Masterworks: The Incredible Hulk, Vol. 1

Issue #3 I feel is a vast improvement over the last issue, although that is not saying too much. but both stories where compelling read’s , even though the 2nd was at its heart a hypnosis story. The twist the issue plays with the overused concept I thought made it worth it.
