Title: Immortal Hulk
Post by: Liam Gallaghers Unibrow on July 04, 2018, 03:17:36 PM
Anyone read the first two issues?

Solid start I think. Moody and atmospheric. Hitting some nice horror notes. I was a little worried from Ewing's interviews that this would end being too Bruce Jones-y, and whilst it does have *some* of the vibe from that run it's not got the stuff that made that so awful (no Hulk and completely shitting on established characters and continuity - Ewing has loads of Hulk and is an absolute continuity buff).

His Hulk is absolutely brutally violent. Ewing has said he wants readers to really question whether Hulk is the guy they should root for and he's doing a good job on that front so far.

Interesting tidbit from the second issue - Banner isn't a super genius anymore thanks to the arrow through the head. He's still smart but can't build Banner-tech force fields or any of that kind of super science stuff anymore. He suggests that this Hulk is actually smarter than he is now which makes his brutality all the more disturbing.

Art is really good for the most part but I'm not a fan of the Hulk's face in close-ups, he looks a bit retarded. I can see what he's going for but it doesn't quite work for me and removed some of Hulk's menace.


Definitely on-board with this for the foreseeable, nice to be excited about a Hulk book again. Aside from a brief spell under Duggan which was okay the Hulk book has been awful since Pak left and that was 7 years ago now.


Cheers.

I tried it, but its not what i was looking for in a Hulk book.

Not saying its bad, the issues were really well written, just not for me.
Not right now.
I might revisit in a few months, see what’s going on.

I read and loved the first issue. Need to check out the second.

I like everything I've read from Al Ewing, though. I think he's Marvel's best writer and they need to give him a Blue Marvel series (Spectrum can co-star)

Basically this, although I am on a blanket ban of Marvel books until Jason Aaron stops writing Thor so I wasn't going to buy it anyway.

Read the first two issues. It seemed an interesting (and very well illustrated*) story BUT it just wan't any kind of Hulk story I wanted to read.

*especially for a current marvel book

I can understand what the writer is going for, its an edgier take on Hulk and playing up Banner's mental issues - that could be cool BUT the big problem is going to be the absence of smashing things and in this decompressed era its difficult to advocate buying individual issues you just know are written for the trade.

Lol!  You would catch that. Can't lie I grinned when I saw it also.

I like the way their going with this as well.  It's not your standard oh shit it's the hulk.  Let's get the hulk busters/Avengers/blah blah blah.  It's like Hulk running the scooby do mysteries.  Just a bit grimmer.

^^^The McGee reference was my favorite.

Like Upper_Krust said, though, the lack of smashing is just a deal breaker for me at this time.
Title: Re: Immortal Hulk
Post by: Liam Gallaghers Unibrow on July 06, 2018, 04:40:17 PM
Not too worried about a lack of smashing. It's only two issues and we've had plenty of Hulk screen time, I don't need a rampage or a big fight every issue.

Based on the Hulk smashing Ewing wrote in No Surrender and the solicits for upcoming issues (a fight with the Avengers and some big fights promised) I'm happy to give Ewing plenty of time to build.


Cheers.

He will be smashing again in Hulk #4-5

Sasquatch in #4 and then Alpha Flight (Space) and the Avengers in #5

Post by: 80sBaby on July 06, 2018, 05:35:51 PM
I like what Ewing is doing. There's not the smash feats but we've seem those. The past 2 issues have been very character driven, and that's what sets it apart imo. It also helps that each issue had been a relatively self-contained story. That helps with the decompression issue. Ewing also respects continuity and folds it into his stories (hence Banner explaining his loss of skills.)

I dig the horror vibe and Hulk's personality. I like Banner's inner monologue and realizations about his relationship to the Hulk. Love how sadistic, yet justified, Jill's actions have been. He's a monster but a righteous one. That's Hulk.

I can (just about) forgive a lack of smashing if the story is building towards some clear smashing (although modern comics rarely use slow builds any longer) but K M raised an interesting point when he noted Hulk will be taking on Sasquatch and the Avengers.

What I always loved about the (classic? ) Hulk (and this is sort of nostalgia tinged of course) was him taking on a new threat (or a threat imported from another comic he hadn't faced yet) and those were some of the most fun issues for me. So its less exciting to see Sasquatch and the Avengers on the horizon - but at least that will hopefully have some sort of smashing component.

But I can see why Hulk fans will overall be happy at the moment because the Hulk is BACK. Unlike Thor whose limp return is just a joke.

^^^so true. Its great when Marvel’s core (non mutant) books get revamped.
I’ve enjoyed Thor’s first 2 issues so far, enough to keep getting it at least. Same w. Iron Man’s debut issue which was hella fun.
Not so much Captain America, which i found way too grim/depressing.

Been a terrible relaunch for me (was in the LCBS yesterday and 'anecdotally' never seen a book so thick on the shelves as that Thor, they must have massively over-ordered) but glad you are enjoying it - this isn't the time or place for a dissection.

I’ve never judged quality by sales. If i like it i’ll get it, till its cancelled or that quality goes down /story direction doesnt interest me.

Marvel’s turned me off for YEARS by having every book tie in to seemingly monthly company crossovers. Havent noticed that recently, but if the books i’m getting (Iron Man, Thor, Avengers, Marvel Two in One) start going that way, i’m sure i’ll drop them.

I agree with this approach.

I'm happy for you, different people like different books, I got no problem with that.

If you want to read a sitcom Big Bang Thor-ry style Thor with a cowardly, cuckolded Thor then Aaron's most recent relaunch is the ticket.

Quote
As long ad you actually gave it a shot!

I've read every issue he has done. Also bought his first 25 issues (before the politics kicked into gear).

The current direction (from Aaron's 5th relaunch last month) makes Thor out to be a joke. But then again in Aaron's eyes Jane-Thor is a real hero, Thor Odinson isn't.

Oh and FWIW I love the TBBT...I just don't want a Thor in the mold of Sheldon Cooper...as funny as that might be.

Hulk is speaking a lot. He's extremely intelligent (he's at least genius-level according to Banner) but also extraordinarily brutal and monstrously calculating. Somewhere between the more sadistic portrayals of Joe Fixit and the Punisher personality wise so far basically.

No idea if he remembers the events of Sakaar, not sure why you'd expect those to come up in the first two issues of a fresh title launch. I've no doubt Al Ewing remembers though, he's a continuity buff and has already included some incredibly obscure Hulk continuity references in the first couple of issues.

To be fair Hulk did pretty much ninja the group, not sure many if any of them got a clear sight apart from the one he crippled and put into a coma who obviously isn't talking any time soon.

But I do get what you mean and I'm glad Ewing isn't going to drag out the "is Hulk back?" thing for too long judging by the solicits for the next few issues.

He's an inch taller than me apparently but a bit lighter naturally, I've seen some pictures of him and he looks a bit lighter built than me. Saw a very brief clip of his last fight but nowhere near enough to judge off of. He's had a few more than me but this is only my third fight so I'd expect that to be the case. Will let you know how it goes!

Saw a very brief clip of his last fight but nowhere near enough to judge off of. He's had a few more than me but this is only my third fight so I'd expect that to be the case. Will let you know how it goes!


Cheers

For sure amigo. Get as much as you can out if it, you wont find a more honest measure of yourself than Boxing. All prayers, thoughts and best wishes go out to you!

So Walter did die in immortal hulk #4. But when he was human he was stabbed in the back by a drunk (probably under control of someone to cause the human side of Sasquatch to disappear). Issue ends with Sasquatch turning and hulk are about to fight. So “evil” Sasquatch is born

Kind of got the vibe they are making Walter hulks equal and potentially stronger from the text... but I doubt it. I expect Hulk will smash. Though might be a good fight

Al Ewing: “But our very next issue is one I’m looking forward to seeing what people think of. Because next ish, we take the gloves off - and we see what it looks like when this new Hulk really smashes. The question is - against what’s lurking in the hospital, will it be enough?

Sasquatch fighting a non holding back Hulk and it might not be enough?

Banner as the Werewolf-style tormented drifter - only with radioactive monsters instead of lycanthropes - is the classic Hulk formula I'm Hulk-is-Strongest-There-Is-ing for.

Preview for the Hulk vs Sasquatch fight - looks like Walter is possessed by Tanaraq or A.N. Other:

Also some preview art from the Hulk vs Avengers fight coming up. Looks like poor Thor is set to get flattened again in what is rapidly becoming one of the most one-sided "rivalries" in comics:

Yeah rough start but don’t think he will be phased by those hits. as there’s a few more preview panels of the fight here and can see hulk with a damaged eye bleeding badly and another sas hitting hulk through a wall, etc

No clue how long the fight will be. But either way Hulk will smash no doubt it

tanaraq in control it was Bruce’s dad who entered through the green door to take over when Walter was dead. In the end hulk had to absorb Sasquatch’s gamma energy depowering him which was a weak ending. but they were equal in strength and Sasquatch was getting the better st the end. Walter is back alive, but no more Sasquatch

Sidenote: it was mentioned online Hulk was going savage as indicated by the eye change when he was yelling at banners dad. Went from green pupils to none, which would explain the grunting. Does that have merit?

I wouldn’t put immortal above WBH. Liam thoughts?

And what’s wrong with Sasquatch? He’s powered (well not in this story) by an elder god and has dynamic strength as well.

He really is (or normally should) be the mirror version of Hulk. I wonder if he will keep Sasquatch’s power and is how he easily stomps the avengers in the next issue

Wasn't Sasquatch though. It's hard to tell what, if any, boost was given by the being that possesed him.

Eming revealed hulk = Sasquatch. Walter created a perfect replication of Hulks powers and abilities and Tanaraq only made him furry (retcon). Difference is Walter is more laid back and doesn’t fully tap into his hulk powers (retcon) while Brian was doing it

My guess is he is going to replicate the process to give someone (maybe not him) the powers of Sasquatch
