Aint-It-Cool-News.com digs “Battlestar Galactica” #0

An excerpt:

Frakholes rejoice because Greg Pak, currently handling the non-Civil War “Planet Hulk” saga for Marvel, has got the BSG atmosphere well in hand. Pak is channeling the TV series into comic form, from President Roslyn’s cat-and-mouse relationship game with Adama, to the nuances of the bridge crew, everything feels familiar. The story could have been pulled straight from an unaired episode.

Green Days digs “Incredible Hulk” #96

Green Days has posted its review of “Incredible Hulk” #96, written by Greg Pak with pencils by Aaron Lopresti. Here’s an excerpt:

I’m not going to get into the particulars of Miek’s story, because Pak handles it so well I feel like relating even the basic, non-spoiler facts could take away from a reader’s enjoyment. Suffice to say, Miek’s past leads to a conflict, and Pak fools you into thinking he’s going to give it your average “shiny happy people” Hollywood ending. Then he pulls the rug out from under you and shows why this chapter of “Planet Hulk” is called “Anarchy.”
