  1. I really enjoyed the first one.  I think Pak has a much better handle on Hercules than he does on the Hulk. I just wish Cho was still around.

  2. First issue was good, but not great. This series seems to change it’s tone which took a while to get used to. Also, Neil Edwards art is good but a bit too stiff.

    Still I’m looking forward to this because I love Pak and Van Lente and Herc. 

  3. I actually loved the first issue…I was never a Hercules fan but If this book keeps its current pace I’ll be a permanent reader, lookin forward to issue 2.

  4. Great first issue! Had everything that a true Herc books needs! Gods, monsters, fighting and sleeping with a woman that you just met! Herc is god of heroes!

  5. Loved the 1st issue.  Hercules is a great character.

  6. I’d go to that bar.

  7. This was a lot better than I was expecting. Liked it much more than the first issue. Not really a herc guy, but I’m for the time being. Love the Brookyn angle too.

  8. raised the bar with issue #2…hope this keeps up

  9. I liked the first issue alot but the second is even better.  There is so much potential with this
