The enemy is me. 5 Nov 2004
By Donald C. Weiss, Jr. - Published on
Format: Paperback
Another masterpiece from the mind of Peter David, Future Imperfect is praised by fans and critics not only as some of his best Hulk work, but as some of his best work overall!

Brought forward in time ninety years and arriving in a post-apocalyptic future, the Hulk is beseeched by a group of resistance fighters to take down the being responsible for all the devastation. A being known only as "the Maestro."

But the battle won't be a simple one, for the Hulk soon learns that the Maestro is none other than a bizarre future incarnation of himself! Driven insane by decades of persecution, made even stronger by the free-floating radiation of the era, and having nearly a hundred years more experience than his younger self, the Maestro will rank as the Hulk's greatest challenge ever...... assuming he survives it.

Featuring art by George Perez and colors by Tom Smith, Future Imperfect is a modern-classic that belongs in every fan's collection.

Hulk vs Hulk -- a great story with great artwork 3 Jan 2002
By The H. Le - Published on
Format: Paperback
It is a future imperfect, where all the superheroes of old have died... except one.
In the distant future, a group of rebels open a time portal to the past and brings through it Bruce Banner, aka the Incredible Hulk. This is not the mindless Hulk of old, but the new Hulk with the mind of Bruce Banner.
After adjusting to his new future surroundings, Hulk finds out that the mastermind behind his abduction is no other than Rick Jones, who is now old and wheelchair bound. Rick has brought the Hulk into the future in hopes that he can restore freedom to a dictatorship world. This future is filled with Gestapo-like police that has free reign over the residents. However, the police all follow the leadership of the Maestro, a powerful dictator who is actually the future version of the Hulk!
What we are treated to is a fantastic story of the future of the Marvel Universe, where the remains of heroes are kept in jars in Rick Jones' basement.
This is a fantastic story of an alternate post-apocalyptic world run by the Hulk. Peter David, who has written many Hulk stories, doesn't miss a beat in this absolutely fantastic tale. He keeps the story very fluid and interesting. The artwork is wonderful, as the legendary George Perez does it.
I definitely recommend this book to any Hulk fan, or anyone looking for a quality story.

Boy did i make a make mistake... 19 Dec 2004
By THE MASTER - Published on
Format: Paperback
by NOT buying this masterpice when i had the chance! My Library had a copy and i took it out, read it and loved it! i thought that i could just go back there for when ever i had a craving to read this great story, but now it's listed as "missing," i.e. some kid borrowed it and never returned it. Now it's out of print, hard to find, and when u can find it it's pricey. Well, it's availble here and i'm gettin' my copy before the're all gone, and if you like the

Hulk or super-hero comics in general, buy this baby while you still can.

Hulk: Future Imperfect 21 Oct 2004
By N. Beitler - Published on
Format: Paperback
What can I say that hasn't already been said by others? I have read and re-read this book many times. It is one of the best Hulk stories you'll ever read and the art is great, too. Almost no prior knowledge of the Hulk is necessary to fully enjoy this masterpiece. Buy this thing now!
