IGN loves “Incredible Hercules” #116

IGN continues to rave about “Incredible Hercules,” written by Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente and now with pencils by Rafa Sandoval. Here’s an excerpt from the review of #116:

Incredible Hercules seems to be getting really formulaic. That formula being it’s going to be really good. You know the tune by now: Herc is one of the most consistently enjoyable and well-done books on the stands today.

Wizard digs “Warbound” #5

Andy Serwin gives “Warbound” #5 the nod at WizardUniverse.com:

The action comes fast and furious, as you’ve come to expect with the Hulk spinoff books, and Pak and Kirk don’t disappoint. There’s even a touching death scene that sets off a whole new status quo, as the Warbound lose one member, only to gain another. Personally, I’m hoping the Warbound don’t take too long a hiatus; I’d like to see them back in a Hulk book ASAP.

“Warbound” #5 was written by Greg Pak with pencils by Leonard Kirk. The book hit stores on Wednesday.
