Hey guys, gays, and gworls! I’m back at it like a crack addict with a review on ‘The Immortal Hulk’!
The Immortal Hulk is written by Al Ewing where he takes us back to Hulk and his roots. But the road taken is more horrific. In this iteration of The Immortal Hulk, we get to see Hulk in Bruce Banner in a way never seen before. I’m talking about religion, mythology, horror, and more. We also get to peek at some of our fave (and not so fave) heroes either help to destroy Hulk or help to save Hulk.
Ewing also took liberty by taking this run and retconning Hulk’s origin story in a new way. At first it was just as simple as being hit with Gamma radiation at a military base and boom, now we have Hulk. This retcon adds more detail to it. We here about a “green door” with “others” like the Hulk along with some more interesting takes. Some of the takes involve what I mentioned before with religion, mythology, and horror. We also dive a little bit deeper into Bruce’s at-home life as a kid and how it’s affecting him now. Trust me, it plays such a big part in the story! This ongoing comic book run also humanizes the Hulk in a way that makes you sympathize with him more than you would Banner.
Joe Bennet and his illustrations in comics are undefeated because WHEW these comics look amazing! The art really gives me old-school horror movie poster but modern-day vibes. Honestly, if you just say “f*ck the story” (which you shouldn’t), you’ll still enjoy it based on the art alone.
