5.0 out of 5 stars All Hail The Green Scar, 12 Mar 2009
This review is from: The Incredible Hulk: Planet Hulk (Paperback)
I used not to like the Hulk. Always thought he was a non-character, just someone who grunted, screamed and broke things. Then I read some of Peter David's run on the hulk and loved it.
Then I stopped, prefered reading the X-titles.
Then I went back to The Hulk a while later, and stopped after a few months.
I then stopped reading the Hulk, no longer thought about him.
Then along came Civil War. Bought the graphic novel, wondered where the Hulk was.
When I found out that the "good guys" thought that Hulk was too dangerous and launched him in to space.
Wwwhhaaaa?
This I have to see.
So, waited until p[ay day, and got my grubby mits on it.
Extremely good.
One of the reviewers here said that it was the greatest. May not be the the greatest (Dark Phoenix by a long shot), but it's up their with the best of them.
Greg Pak hows that he he wrote with a long story mentality. Not only dropping him on the planet, but giving him no way back.
Pak writes a Hulk out of water yet still in his element. He introduces us to an alien world, compleat with history and various unique races (along with the return of The Brood and Death's Head.... kind of). there's a great prosession of new characters who you can;t help but feel for.
I think that was the main thing that got me about this story, I cared about the characters and felt that connecion you need to get into the story and hold the reader.
There were moments of the story where I grinned and fought the urge to punch the air. Very few graphic novels make me feel like that.
The fact that Greg Pak has gone out of his way to make his planet a real as he can shows this book was a great labour of love, and a story that had to be told.
As for the art, I Love it!
Crisp and polished, giving Pak's alien world glorious visuals and the best hulk I've seen since Gary Frank and Dale Keown. It's not angular, it's not being edgy, it'sbeing very honest and is just purely great art from all the names involved. The pictures make it a comfortable read. You end up hoping that the Hulk's stay on this planet won't end.
But it does.
Abd then comes World War Hulk.
Can't wait.

A must for Hulk fans and one for those who think they don't like him. Afte reading this you will
