    Hulk at his best!!!

    The Good

    I love how they really made Hulk have more emotions, and fleshed him out more, instead of him being a mindless beast who randomly decides to wreck havoc among his teammates. Hulk is out for revenge, and nobody is stopping him, as shown in his epic battle with Black Bolt (in which he won). You see a more emotional side to Hulk in this comic, and you see how he is fleshed out as an actual character, not as a plot device used to bring other heroes together to stop one powerful menace. When you saw him smacking around Iron Man in his Hulk-Buster suit, you know your inner geek was unleashed! You also saw both sides of the crowd, the crazy hippies rooting for Hulk, and the citizens cheering for Iron Man as Tony makes his "I must protect everybody" speech. The art is fantastic, and I like this story a lot.

    The Bad

    The art can lack details at times, but its only the side characters and background. Nothing to get fussed about or nitpick at, just a small observation I noticed.

    The Verdict

    Great comic book issue, and the entire story is great. I highly recommend it! This is truly Hulk at his best!

In fact there's a few things that happen in this issue that I thought we'd only see in the finale, and even at that I thought there might be a cop out and we wouldn'...

      Don't get Hulk angry. 0

      On the eve of World War Hulk #2 coming out, I took another look at #1 and relived the greatness that is the green giant. We always knew the Hulk was a powerful being, but not up there with the greatest of greats! I guess when this is all said and done, we'll now be able to confirm that Hulk is indeed one of the strongest beings in the comic universe.As for the story telling, The Outsider said it best: Straight out of the gate, we get action and then some. To see the Hulk smash Black Bolt and the...
