“Incredible Hercules” #113 gets four bullets from ComicsBulletin.com

Luke Handley and Paul Brian McCoy call “Incredible Hercules” “one of the best books Marvel is putting out at the moment” in their rave advance review of issue #113 at ComicsBulletin.com. Here’s the quote in context:

…this is well worth the time and money. It’s a step up in quality from the already high quality Incredible Hulk run Pak has been responsible for and the art is very nice. The mythological elements of Hercules character are playing a central part and are serving to make him a much more nuanced and interesting character than he’s ever been. Amadeus Cho continues to be entertaining with his determination and grit. And even Ares is being utilized much more effectively than he has been over in Mighty Avengers. I recommend this highly. It is, without a doubt, one of the best books Marvel is putting out at the moment.

And here’s what Comixtreme had to say about the last issue:

In the last couple years, Hercules has had a renaissance, as he was extremely well portrayed in Civil War, and then in World War Hulk was once again extremely well written and characterized. Now, he’s taking over this title for a little while, with Amadeus Cho at his side, and although its one of the oddest team-ups, on paper, in reality it ends up working extremely well under Pak/Van Lente’s pens.
