Indestructible Hulk #1 Review

Guest Author - Eugene Bradford

Marvel Comicsí NOW! initiative is in full swing as many of their new books have hit shelves. One of those series is Indestructible Hulk. I'll preface this review by telling you I've never been much of a Hulk fan. Including this issue, I havenít even read a handful of Hulk books. The character never appealed to me. I picked this book up because of the people working on it. I've enjoyed writer Mark Waid and artist Leinil Francis Yu's work for some time. This has included their mainstream as well as their creator-owned work. Iíll try out new books all the time and I will certainly take note if either of their names is attached to a project. Joining them are colorist Sunny Gho and letterer Chris Eliopoulos.

The relaunched Hulk book features Bruce Banner attempting to make peace with the Hulk. It's cool because he realizes he Waid utilizes some interesting aspects to present the story which begins the character's path as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. With my limited knowledge of Hulk history, I don't know how the elements in this book have been used before. One of those elements is Banner acknowledging his place among the other super-scientists in the Marvel Universe. This is different because I can't recall him ever trying to apply his skills to the world.

Leinil Francis Yu brings a style that's somewhat gritty and very expressive. Sunny Gho's colors give Yu's pencils a darker and flatter look which serves the story well. My only real problems are a couple panels where I lost track of what was happening. Beyond that, the art team provides some quality visuals.

Thereís been a lot going on within the Hulk franchise with more Hulks popping up and all that. This book has a lot going for it. The creative team behind is extremely talented. I'm curious to see what they do with Banner and Hulk on his new journey. So I'll be sticking around for a few issues. I think Hulk fans will like this series because the essence of the character is there and this is a logical step forward for him. Opening a new chapter in Banner's life will appeal to new readers as well because itís an easy point for them to jump on. Marvel may have added another hit to their library from the NOW!.

I purchased this comic book with my own funds.
