ComicPants.com loves Herc!

“Incredible Hulk” #112, the first issue of the “Incredible Hercules” storyline, written by Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente with pencils by Khoi Pham, has gotten a rave from Nick Budd at ComicPants.com. An excerpt:

Pretty close to being perfect. Yeah, that might be setting expectations fairly high, but truth be told, the start of the “Incredible Herc” storyline is one that seems to have most everything that one might look for in a comic book…. Pak and Van Lente write these characters insanely well, and are able to imbue them all with a real sense of character and spirit that makes them and the story that much more interesting.

Newsarama digs “Warbound” #1

Newsarama has posted a review from Brendan McGuirk of “World War Hulk Aftersmash: Warbound” #1, written by Greg Pak with pencils by Leonard Kirk and Rafa Sandoval. An excerpt:

[Pak] takes great care to flesh out and solidify the personalities of his players, and the effort shines through…. This may be the most familiar “Incredible Hulk” book on the stands. It stars monsters on the run from oppressive government forces hellbent on destroying them without empathy or understanding. People who enjoyed seeing the Hulk out of place during Planet Hulk, should enjoy seeing the situation flipped, with his Warbound acting in his familiar role.

Comixtreme digs “Warbound” #1

Comixtreme.com as posted an advance review by Blake M. Petit of “World War Hulk Aftersmash: Warbound” #1, written by Greg Pak with pencils by Leonard Kirk. An excerpt:

Greg Pak here makes very good use of some of the threads from World War Hulk that had seemingly been discarded. Our main characters here are painted very sympathetically, and that goes for both sides. We feel for the aliens, trapped on another world, duped into going to war. We feel for Waynesboro, cut off from her support, trying to bring in four alien creatures that don’t actually seem that bad to her.

The book hits comic book stores today.

Comixtreme.com loves “Incredible Hulk” #112

With issue #112, Hercules and Amadeus Cho take the star roles of the “Incredible Hulk” comic book in a storyline written by Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente with pencils by Khoi Pham. And Comixtreme likes what it sees. An excerpt:

The only real question here is whether or not Hercules and Amadeus Cho can be interesting enough characters to sustain a buddy title. Based on this first issue, as long as Pak and Van Lente are doing the work, I’d say it’s a resounding yes. High action, well-placed laughs and a really strong direction give it three marks that most comics out there don’t have.

Phillyist dubs “World War Hulk” the number one comic book of 2007

Phillyist.com has named “World War Hulk,” written by Greg Pak with pencils by John Romita, Jr., the top comic book of 2007. An excerpt:

… this story also examines what it means to be a hero, the plight of the average person when a war or natural disaster destroys his/her home (echoes of Katrina and 9/11 – especially given that the home in question is New York), or when his/her home is invaded and occupied by an outside force (echoes of Iraq). It talks about concepts like sacrifice, the misuse of power, self-destructive cycles of revenge, knowing and embracing your true self. All while big guys are hitting each other as hard as they can. You’ll cheer, you’ll laugh, and you might even shed a tear at the end. Pretty impressive for a pile of funny books.

Comixtreme reviews “Aftersmash” again — and likes it again!

Pak does an excellent job on the character building here, whether it be on Tom Foster, as he tries to focus his issues regarding his uncle’s death, and who he blames for it, or on Misty Knight, who’s dealing with her own guilt regarding how her team was involved in the WWH event.
