Mark Waid is a master storyteller. Hulk #4 proves that clarity is not synonymous with pandering. There’s a moment on pages 2-3 where Banner freaks out because his hand is green, then says “oh it’s just paint”. At this point In many other comics I would be saying “did I miss something? Was he painting last issue?” Here I was saying “ooh, I can’t wait to see what he was painting!” Can’t put my finger on how he and Yu did that.

This is the Hulk comic I’ve been waiting for since I was first smashed by Kirby’s primal power. But Waid does not throw back, he throws forward. Like the renaissance did with the Greeks, he takes what worked from the past and hurls headlong into the future.

Yu’s awesome too. Hulk has a terrifying mix of weight and momentum, and Banner had a steely hard exterior that somehow betrays a vulnerable interior. Colorist Sunny Gho has a lot to do with that too.

  1. Agree – Waid always produces good work. That’s the reason I even tried this book. And yes, it’s a darn fine book!
