“Bruce, for God’s Sake.” A Review of ‘World War Hulk’ and Its Various Tie-ins (Part 6)


Last week seemed like total weak-sauce to me, so I waited for the head honcho, WORLD WAR HULK #3, to hit stands. It has and just like that, I'm back with more Hulk-y nonsense!

“GRAAAAA!” A Review of ‘World War Hulk’ and Its Various Tie-ins (Part 2)


I think Hulk wants to get the introductions out of the way. He's had a prologue and a comic with hardly any Hulk in it at all. He's ready to yell "GRAAAAA!" and punch Iron Man in the face. But then again, aren't we all?
