These last few issues of Hulk have been some of the most mediocre books I have been reading. Were it not for my passion for the character and his cast I certainly would have dropped this book. Lacking Hardeman’s amazing art they have coped with fair to good work, with an occasional poor issue… Such as this one with Eaglesham. He is a terrible Hulk artist. Whatever other accolades he may have earned his two stints on the Hulk titles have been terrible. Parker’s once tight, serious writing has veered into the tangential, slightly ludicrous realm that we have scarcely seen since the 80s. With good reason, too. Haunted Hulk? Meh. Hulk vs. Mayan gods? Really? No thanks. Silly, poorly presented, often with clumsy dialogue. Avoid unless your are psychologically incapable of avoiding a Hulk book like me.

  1. I disagree. I think the art in this issue is a fair improvement. Then again, I like my art with a certain amount of grit, and the past bunch of issues has had art that’s much too polished and “round” for my tastes. It’s one thing to have an opinion, but don’t throw someone under the bus just because you don’t like it.

  2. I normally trade-wait this title, but after seeing the art inside this issue as I flipped through it at the shop today, I decided to get this on a monthly basis, for at least this arc.

    I love this art style, but we all have different tastes.

    I also liked Hardeman’s art a great deal.
