The Immortal Hulk #5
Share:
Marvel's Current Best
September 14th, 2018
This review contains spoilers. Proceed at your own risk.

This book continues to engage and enthrall. I was worried that Sasquatch was being introduced just to give Hulk something to punch, but Ewing elevates the basic story elements and turns it into something that I had a visceral, even audible reaction to (Yes, I actually exclaimed - something I haven't done since recent issues of Mister Miracle.). The reveal was shocking and terrifying.

"Little. MONSTER."

Hulk's reaction sold this surprise and the impact it will have on him for issues to come. The absorption of both the gamma radiation and the specter of Banner's father is a fascinating and brilliant turn of events.

Alex Ross' cover art continues to be top notch (I want each of these on my non-existent Comic Wall), but I really enjoy Joe Bennett's work here as well. He tends to quickly draw some characters, but Hulk's expressions, with all their little nuances, are a terrific study. As someone who doesn't usually prefer the brutish, stupid-looking Hulk features, I've had my mind changed by Bennett's well-drawn heavy brows and troglodyte mouth. It only makes the juxtaposition with Hulk's intelligent/cerebral conversation that much sweeter.

The top Marvel book for me right now.
