HERC #6.1

START READING with this Point One Issue!

Herc’s had a busy time recently. He saved all of reality, got depowered in the process, moved out to Brooklyn and became a local hero. Although he’s no longer a god and shows no interest in reclaiming his place in Olympia, that doesn’t mean that Olympia’s forgotten about him. A figure from Herc’s past has come to hunt him down, and his intentions for what to do once he finds him remain unclear. Does Olympia have it out for its former son?

Written by Marvel Masters Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente and drawn by artist extraordinaire Mike Grell, HERC 6.1 offers an awesome jumping-on point for anyone curious about Marvel’s beloved bruiser, Herc!

  1. Loving this book. Pak and Van Lente have been going on full steam with their Hercules story since day 1 that the concept started.

  2. I have a light week and may have to pick this up. Any recommendations, Herc or Secret Avengers?

    • Herc. It’s a .1 and it will be a lot more fun than whatever Secret Avengers has going on. It’s Pak and Van Lente, no contest! Though I wonder about the Grell art; I’ve heard good and bad about him, so I’ll reserve judgement for afterwards.

    • Herc, it’s been a damn good fun ride so far. A shame it’s getting cancelled (According to IGN)

  3. I’m so disapointed that this book is being cancelled. Its been a fun ride since issue 1. Hope the character still apears somewhere else
