  1. Ugh….Fear Itself tie-in already?


  2. @TNC: Yeah I wished for a bit more issues dedicated solely to Herc only but I still feel this shouldn’t disappoint.

  3. @Avistann  I agreed I’d had open for at least one story arc to be completed first. Oh well I can’t imagine i won’t be too lost even though i haven’t read any of the main Fear Itself title.

  4. At least with Marvel tie ins the creators normally get the choice whether to join in. I have faith that these creators can mix it up with FI without it being detrimental to Herc’s ongoing story.

  5. It was the Secret Invasion story arc that really got things going for The Incredible Hercules.  I’m hoping Pak and Van Lente hit good with Fear Itself as well.

  6. Darn my comic shop did not have a copy of this. I am going to try another one in a bit and hopefully snag a copy.

  7. As of right now, this is the best issue of Herc so far. Funny and back to the roots of the original title. Shame the art isn’t improving. Also, THERE IS NO FUCKING FEAR ITSELF TIE-IN TO THIS!


  8. @TNC  The prisoners escaping from the raft as well as the pissed off crowd are both LARGE elements from Fear Itself.  Besides, it’s just a banner.   But I agree about the art. Wish it was tighter.

  9. And check out this quote from Comic Vine concerning Hecate’s powers

    She can use her powers to conjure up her foes worst fear turning it into a real life, solid, counterpart.”
