    Hulk Swim (for a little while anyway)


    Attractive women abound. Wow. Yeah, Betty Ross has never looked so good, regardless what form she takes. And Amanda Von Doom, nice. As not to sound completely sexist, Banner and the Hulk looked good too. ;) But on a more serious note, it did feel overly charged with sexual tension, something that probably could have been avoided. Nevertheless, the story, and some of the background information was a nice addition (as the first issue really threw us right into the "NOW". I did like the introduction of some "new" characters by Amanda, we will see how many issues they tie in to - there is some potential anyway.


    The issue seemed rushed. I realize it reads real fast, because it is mostly pictures, but it just seems like it was cut short. It hopped around a bit between Banner and Hulk, had a flashback, and quite a few scene changes, so I guess that is where this feeling is coming from. It was a lot of good content, just a bit too much, too fast. Also, they should have chosen something else for the cover - the Hulk vs Sharks bit was only in the story for a 1 page panel...

    I would pick it up. It was a good read, a good continuation from Issue 1 - it even answered some questions you may have had from that issue - not the main one of "how did they split", but we do get the message driven home that it was "Hulk's choice". Oh, and OK Amanda, we get it, you are not related to Dr. Doom. :) If nothing else, you will want to read this to know understand the cover of the next issue... Anyway, I liked it, not a perfect score, but well worth a read.

    As noted in the content I added for the the page, there is an exclusive preview (which takes up a good chunk of the book) included in the last pages of this issue. While I liked the preview, I would rather have had more Hulk... well Betty anyway. :)

      Banner SMASH? 0

      The GoodRight from the start we get some back story about how Banner ended up on this remote island performing experiments on various animals. Aaron does an amazing job showing the fragile relationship between Banner and Betty and how he cannot hide his obsession with his work. Even in Banner's facial expressions it's hard to find any sense of humanity. Silvestri's work is outstanding; all the faces have incredible detail and the action sequences really come alive.The BadThe jump between artists...

      Aww...Hulk wanted to smash more ugly green sharks.... 0

      After the first issue introducing the green giant’s new life, this issue focuses more on Banner as he is quickly seems to be turning into a villain. Making me remember long ago that Bruce once said that the hulk was protecting the world from him…..could this statement have been true all along? Was banner always meant to do wrong? These answers are not here but it’s another solid issue.We start the issue with Betty who is trying to give her marriage a second chance by enjoying a nice sunny day in...
