Having returned from Sakaar, Hulk is seeking revenge for its destruction. The action never reall lets up from th start, with Hulk taking on the Avengers, Fantastic Four, Dr Strange and the Sentry.
Reading WWH Hulk is a bit like reading a Hulk Vs thread on the internet, and although a massive fan of the Hulk since Planet, the excuses used for him winning are sometimes a bit shoddy, something some on the internet refer to as "plot armor", he's so angry he can do anything because it moves the plot along.
John Romita Jr, one of the better artists of Marvel's stock, does well. Sometimes during the many fight scenes his art begins to suffer and not make a lot of sense, but it's good enough to convey the emotions of characters without making things so bad you don't want to read.
All in all, it's everything I ever wanted from a Hulk book. It has enough depth to make it more than just a bunch of maniacs kicking each other, but enough smashing to be fair to the violence expected from Hulk.
This is about Hulk making the world pay. Any Hulk fan knows that the angrier the hulk gets the stronger he gets and he has never been angrier. This is a Hulk of pure rage, even Banner fights when he is forced forward and that just shows how thoroughly this is a story about loss.
The Hulk never comes across as unfair, only willing to bring back what they caused him. There is a question of if he is bringing his rage to others unduly but when it comes down to it all the characters on Hulk's side know that 1. many of the marvel heroes deserve it for something they have done and 2. they are going to be damned no matter what but they are with the Hulk because he deserves his revenge. It all ends in the epic showdown of Hulk vs Sentry which has to be read to be believed, in a seriously good way.
This is an excellent comic and is very sad. I would have liked to see the 'event' at the end of Planet Hulk not happen all together but que sera. the last few comics are what ifs if things had gone different ways and they are interesting to see almost the road of good intentions and what the Hulk is to others.
With a good story and simple theme (revenge), the book excels for the sheer feeling of might you get when reading it.
The art by John Romita Jr. really expresses the rage the Hulk is in, giving him that "Hulk smash" look that everyone is truly afraid.
The writing by Greg Pak makes the dialogues that the Hulk has with everyone add an extra feel to it.
One of the Hulk's line describes his rage the best: Never stop making them pay.
It is, in my oppinion, a good reading that adds a great story to the Green Giant library.
What follows is quintessential Hulk. He’s angry and, as a result, he smashes stuff. This is Hulk going about his business on an epic scale, delivering some truly spine-tingling moments; like demanding his tormentors come forward whilst holding aloft the broken Black Bolt and breaking the hands of Doctor Strange.
The art in WWH is absolutely spot-on, as it is really intense and the Hulk in particular looks awesome (and rightly so).
Overall - 5/5 Stars for an awesome, epic, quintessential and thoroughly enjoyable Hulk.
The writing isn't bad, the art isn't bad but much like the X men origins: Wolverine movie - its just a bit gratuitous. This an example of a cool concept that doesn't deliver, Hulk is a hard character to write and writers mostly get him wrong. He has worked in the movies because Banner is the focus and Banner has issues and flaws, the threat of unleashing the hulk is a big deal to everyone including himself. This story focusses on Hulk being annoyed at the heroes of Earth for abandoning him, which as a concept is brilliant, but the writers miss the mark and make it a bunch of gratuitous fights.
I would have enjoyed this book more if I was 17 years old
