An entertaining showdown including some classic characters. Also thrown in is the back-story from Wolverine #50 - a classic. Recommended for Hulk fans!
THE SPOILER ZONE
The story then proceeds through a series of episodes where the Red Hulk pops up and punches someone out, while the mystery of his identity is slowly penetrated.
Issue #2 sees a fight on the SHIELD helicarrier with She-Hulk and Iron Man beaten by big Red, and the carrier brought down over New York, leading into...
Issue #3, which sees Rick Jones as the `Blue Hulk' - A-Bomb - battle the Red Hulk on the old Gamma Base where Bruce Banner is imprisoned... with a few Harpies joining in to even the odds.
Issue #4 has the Green Hulk emerge from his prison just in time for the Watcher to arrive and get flattened by big Red. We then get a big Hulk on Hulk battle, which ends on top of the Golden Gate Bridge.Read more ›
To state that this was an awful story is giving it too much credit. Frankly, there is NO story. Loeb, in the span of the 6 issues collected in this volume, manages to offer artist Ed McGuinness a two-page spread every few pages that showcases the red or green Hulk punching someone. I finished this "collection" in under 25 minutes and was left amazed at how poorly executed this sad chapter in Hulk's life was. The mysterious Red Hulk might have potential as a major villain, but it is NOT showcased here. What follows in the course of this book are pages with very minimal dialogue and a lot of splash pages meant to highlight McGuinness' ability to draw outrageously muscled characters. This type of pandering to an artist is a reoccurring trend with Loeb, but this is probably the most egregious example. At one point, 7 whole pages are dedicated to the Hulk climbing up a bridge after being tossed into the water below!Read more ›
Although a collection of 6 issues of the monthly title, it works well as a book/graphic novel. Far better in fact than the next volume in the series which I bought from Amazon at the same time (see separate review). It was pretty perfect as a 're-entry point' for someone like me who hadn't read a Hulk Comic for years and therefore knew most of the main characters but had little knowledge of recent events in the Marvel Universe.
It's a great premise, with the mystery of the red hulk (I refuse to refer to him as 'RULK', whoever let that idea through?), his origins and his purpose defintately capturing the imagination and the many questions and surprises generated by this volume only fuelled my desire to read the next installment, which is what it is of course meant to do.
I was raised on the likes of John Byrne, Peter David Dale Keown, Gary Frank etc and so if I was nitpicking I could say that the art, while of high quality feels a bit too cartoony and therefore not quite as emotive as it could be. Also, in some cases it feels that while Jeff Loebb makes 'nods' to history (having Clay Quartermain an agent of shield for example or the grey hulk appearing in the next volume) they sometimes feel like token jestures because of their context (none of Clay's past involvement with the hulk is mentioned). So while not quite perfect, great nonetheless.

A very enjoyable comic. Not particularly deep or anything that you won't have seen before.
The artwork is very good.
The premise of this Hulk vs. Red Hulk graphic novel I thought was very promising, one hulk versus the other I thought to myself 'excellent'. Read morePublished on 25 Feb. 2010 by A. Standen
Cant fault this....lots of action and great artwork with a good storyline (look out for Green Hulk and Ares meeting up and smile).All in all well worth recommending.Published on 7 Jan. 2009 by Gary Calder
A good effort from Loeb & McGuinness, reminiscent of their Batman / Superman work in that it's pretty straightforward superhero-ing, very fast paced with suitably chunky artwork... Read morePublished on 23 Dec. 2008 by SWalien
