The Comic Book Club’s Alex Zalben has posted a rave review of “Incredible Hulk” #605, written by Greg Pak with art by Ariel Olivetti and Paul Pelletier. Here’s the blurb:
Iâ€™m going to pretend that Greg Pak coming back on this title a few issues ago was a reboot (which, essentially, it was, but without the new number one), and say that this issue is easily the best of an already excellent title. For those of you who havenâ€™t been picking it up, a de-powered Banner is traveling around with his son, Skaar, who wants to kill the Hulk. Banner is (supposedly) training Skaar to kill the Hulkâ€¦ Except maybe heâ€™s not. Layered, textured, and tons of fun, not only does Greg Pak have perfect mastery of the Hulk and all his supporting characters, but he knows how to craft an issue of a comic that continues a story, but feels complete in and of itself. That takes skill. Oh, and Ariel Olivettiâ€™s art is ridiculously good.
And if that’s not enough for you, here’s the rave review for “War Machine” #12, also written by Greg Pak:
Greg Pak gives James Rhodes a new status quo, and a gangbusters ending, just in time for his series to end. Too bad, too, as it felt like it was just getting started. For those of you who missed it, all twelve issues read as one mega-story, and thisâ€™ll read great in the trade.
