I bought this book after reading planet hulk and world war hulk and was left wanting more, but this book did not provide.
basically this book takes place during world war hulk as seen through the eyes of two reporters following the action on the ground and also reporting on how the hulks arival has affected regular people in the city.
i found the two reporters and their storys generaly boring and predicatable and as such found reading the book an effort and unrewarding.
there is also a side story about a cop trying to solve the murder of one of the warbound which most definatly was the highlight of the book even if the ending was a bit stupid.
in all i would only recommend this book if you have to own all WWH books (like me) this book provides no new information so as long as you have read WWH you will not be confused.
if you want a good WWH read i would recommend WWH Xmen and WWH Damage control as a good starting place.

I can see the angle they tried to portray but it was terribly done.
It did not find it gripping in fact it was really boring.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money! 8 Jan. 2011
By vtech4ever - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying I'm a big Hulk fan. But this book I could barely finish. I see what they tried to do here, but this was just NOT INTERESTING! It was very boring. Trust me, you won't miss anything in the WWH series if you don't get this book. It is not a must add to the collection, or a must read by any stretch. Save your money. Buy some of the other titles in this series. I would maybe buy this book if it was $5 or less,(and that includes shipping!)

Its just 2 news reporters covering the Hulk invasion.

BOOORRING!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Story Line 23 Sept. 2012
By JONATHAN KNAPTON - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of the best story lines I have ever read in comics. Planet Hulk and World War Hulk are just amazing. Even if you don't follow Hulk comics this is a great read.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great story, great art, human observations of World War Hulk - as satisfying as Planet Hulk, but in a different way 3 Dec. 2014
By Surferofromantica - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I used to be a big fan of Marvel comic books in the 1980s - although never a huge collector of Hulk titles - and after many years away, I've been dipping back in to see what's going on in the Marvel world. I've mostly been disappointed: the stories are immature, the art even more swaggering than it used to be, and I've not found anything that really holds my attention.

After being totally surprised by Planet Hulk, I've been surprised a second time by World War Hulk: Front Line. It's simply amazing... but in a totally different way!

Planet Hulk was different. The writing (dialogue, etc) was fantastic, and the story development never disappointed. The characters were likeable, and Hulk's glee at being able to smash everything that came his way was completely off the scales. The pages were text-heavy, but they never feel wearisome the way some text-heavy comics do. It was simply a great new take on an old Marvel war horse, without being an "alternate reality" or a revisionist history, and by far the best thing I've read from a major comics house in a very long time. It also didn't tread too heavily on the awful Civil War or "mutant menace" storylines that just won't go away.

World War Hulk: Front Line delights in many of the same ways. It is a street level observation of the proceedings of World War Hulk (which, on its own, was interesting, but not as good as Planet Hulk) by alcoholic columnist Sally Floyd and warhorse journalist Ben Urich (who I remember very well from the pages of Frank Miller's Daredevil in the 1980s), who have launched a newspaper very appropriately called Front Line - appropriate because they stay in Manhattan during the crushing action of World War Hulk and have a major publishing smash reporting from the front lines.

Following their adventures, we get to peer over their shoulders as they observe the lives of average New Yorkers, a superhero or two, regular GIs, aliens, the denizens of the Daily Bugle (nice sub-plot here) and others while Hulk takes on the rest of the world. And to keep things from getting stale, they break several of the six regular issues of WWH Front Line into parallel tales - one of Sally and Ben, and one of Sally's boyfriend NYPD detective Danny Granville working with Korg (one of Hulk's lieutenants) to solve the murder of another of Hulk's team. Finally, there are a few throwaway funny pages done in the vein of Not Brand Echhh. Non-stop great!

The book opens up with the "World War Hulk Prologue" issue which is a bit of a throwaway in terms of where Front Line is concerned - we join the Hulk and his crew as they hurtle through space towards Earth, slaughtering pirates and reliving past events, meditating (the Hulk meditates?), and a few scenes with our other gamma ray-affected friends, She-Hulk and Doc Samson. So-so. It picks up with WWR Front Line Issue 1, which introduces us to Sally and Ben and gets things moving with the bulid-up to Hulk Occupation. Nice. Intertwining stories, including one of the neighbourhood dog, can only remind me of Watchmen! Issue 2 gets more personal and more chaotic; we also get here the first instalment of the "Death Of An Android" hardboiled storyline, and the "War Is Heck" funny pages. Issue 3 offers full-on war zone observations, more detective-ing, and some silly funny stuff. Issue 4 has a great bar scene - Sally and JJJ argue while bug aliens fight rednecks in the background; there's also great arena-side bloodthirstiness with Ben wondering if the Hulk has brought us down to the level of savages, or whether we were already there. The action heats up with detective Granville, and there's a pretty hilarious coda to the book. Issue 5 is about total anarchy and rioting in Manhattan, and includes a pretty hilarious scene with Moon Knight. We also get the conclusion of the detective case, very satisfying indeed. The funny pages at the end, "The Top 10 Reasons to Hate Sally Floyd", is probably one of the best of the series, as is that capping Issue 4, where the Hulk caps lesser-known heroes (including the hapless figure-of-fun/fake hero Captain Rectitude). Issue 6 observes the conclusion of World War Hulk, and the return to sanity after New York burns for three days... ouch!! The final surprise ending is a bit anti-climatic - I saw it coming already in Issue 4 - but it's still pretty cool. This issue only covers the main characters Sally and Ben (well, really only Sally, who I guess is the main character now - Ben's hardly in this issue), no extras.

The art is great - very human, not as bulging and over-drawn as Planet Hulk, with an indie feel to it. Very nice!

3.0 out of 5 stars A "street level look" at WWH? Not really, but not too bad either 8 Jun. 2008
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Like Civil War: Front Line before it, writer Paul Jenkins returns with World War Hulk: Front Line, which finds reporters Ben Urich and Sally Floyd covering the developments, and getting caught in the middle of, the Hulk's attack on the superheroes of New York City. As far as offering up a "street level look" at the developments of World War Hulk, it doesn't really deliver. However, Jenkins does manage to provide a pretty interesting story that plays more as a side-story to what's going on in Greg Pak's WWH. That being said, there isn't a whole lot else here to really hold your interest either. Ramon Bachs provides some decent artwork too, but the real highlight of this TPB is the World War Hulk: World Breaker prologue one-shot written by legendary Hulk writer Peter David, in which the green goliath reminisces about his past run-in's with Iron Man, the Fantastic Four, and the rest of those he has sworn vengeance upon. All in all, World War Hulk: Front Line isn't a bad WWH tie-in at all, but if you skip it you won't really be missing out on much either.
