Users who pulled this comic:


  1. This art seriously needs to go. This arc is the last chance I am giving it before sending it to the chopping block….

  2. I always thought Banner/Hulk stayed angry by reading message boards 🙂

  3. Excited for this.

  4. Wasn’t feeling Silvestri’s Hulk, the following couple of issues didn’t impress me, I actually liked the .1 issue… Looking forward to Dillon’s work on this.

  5. They had me when they name-dropped “Crank” as an inspiration for this arc. I haven’t been buying this title but I’m going to pick up this issue to try it out.

  6. I liked the .1 issue a lot. The first arc didn’t quite work for me. But things seem to be looking up. I like how Hulk is haunted by Banner, who seems to be rattling around in his mind somehow.

  7. I know people love Steve Dillion, but he draws a very lame looking hulk. Just a green Frank Castle with no hair.

  8. Wow. That was absolute crap IMO. Couldn’t even get through it. I got a soft spot for Dillon, but this was just bad. And the dogs? What the hell was that?! Geesh…

  9. This should’ve been called Breaking Mad. This was pretty wacky. The art really hurt the issue for me. I’m not sure what to make of what happened in the story, but it definitely wasn’t the same ole. Hopefully Aaron is about to take this book on a wild ride.

  10. Love the premise for the arc.

    Did not like this much 2/5

  11. This was an issue where an adventuring Hulk gets shot in the face with a heroin gun by a pit bull humanoid who drives a Cadillac convertable. And he’s assisted by a bearded Punisher. And it was drawn by Steve Dillon.

    Yeah, this was great. POTW.

    • I agree and it definetly seems to be going in an intresting direction with the new storyline I’m not sure why there are so many negative comments in this thread

  12. The art was horrible, but it is different artists throughout the arc. The premise of the story was great, but the execution was horrendous. I am pulling both hulk and incredible hulk, and this is getting dropped after this arc, unless it does something for me.

    There were a few funny parts, however “quick, shoot me in the face, you wouldnt like me when im not angry”

  13. I love Jason Aaron and his run on the Hulk thus far but the art was SOOOOO BAD! I just couldn’t justify 3.99 on a book that made me sick to look at. I’ll be back with a new artist which apparently is next week.

    • Yep. Couldn’t get past the art. Might have been a great read, but it didn’t feel like I was reading the Hulk. Seems like with the momentum from the Avengers movie, with so many non or passive comic book fans willing to buy some Hulk right now (non comic fans are familiar with both Hulk and Punisher), seems that Marvel would want to do something that would appeal to those people more. Missed opportunity to pick up new readers? I dunno. Oh, well.

  14. I love Steve Dillon’s art but I hate the way he drew Hulk. It took me out of the book right away and the story was weird.

  15. I was about to pick this up, then I noticed it’s pencilled by Steve Dillon. I wouldn’t pick this up if it was FCBD

  16. Meh – I am glad the art is only for one issue.

  17. I’ve never been a regular reader of the Incredible Hulk till Jason Aaron took over the writing reins. Issues #1 – 7 were awesome and felt like I was going to reading this comic for quite awhile till I read the .1 issue and issue 8. Both were terrible and having Dillon do art on Hulk was a poor choice by Marvel. Love Dillon’s work on Preacher and Punisher,but NOT on Inc. Hulk. If the next issue fails then I will be taking this off of my pull list.

  18. I really thought the first arc was good.

    The 7.1 and 8 issue, however, is NOT GOOD. Artwork and writing are both substandard.

    I like Dillon on a lot of his work (punisher), but the Hulk looks like Shrek. And the writing – not doing it for me.

    One more issue, then I’m out if I don’t see some improvement!

  19. The artwork is not really that bad just not really gonna say that good either. Shrek?! Yah, I will agree with the fact he does look a lot like Shrek and not much like the HULK at all really!! He looks so much smaller than the Hulk we all know and looks so weak and puny. I like the idea that he is trying to stay angry instead of keeping away from angry which is what we are all used too. Punisher’s look on his face when Hulk wants him to shot him in the face was priceless and that was about the highlight of this issue alone beause without Punisher this issue was headed no where real fast!!
