3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Planet Hulk, 21 July 2010
This review is from: WORLD WAR HULK (Paperback)
This is not really a bad book, it just suffers due to the quality of the preceding book 'Planet Hulk'. Both the story and the art here are just not as good/effective as in 'Planet Hulk' and I was therefore quite dissapointed. While I am a fan of John Romita Jr's artwork, he is quite character specific. For instance I loved his run on Amazing Spiderman and also, although you would not think it, his work on the 'Armour Wars II' storeyline in Iron Man (showing my age here) but I have never felt that he quite got Hulk right. There seems to be a lack of detail which just does not make the artwork emotive enough. You're looking at pictures , but without being drawn in as much, they just don't seem to be as expressive or convey feeling.
I was new to Greg Pak before reading 'Planet Hulk' but throughly enjoyed it and so had high hopes for the second installment, but it just did not have the same 'oomph'. Ironically it seems like Greg Pak is very capable when dealing with a whole world and characters that are entirely of his own creation, but not so hot here when it is our world with known characters that someone else has created.
