Joey Bennett– Artist
July 4, 2018
Back in June, Marvel decided to bring back one of the most bad ass characters in the one and only Hulk and its not Amadeus Cho. They brought back Bruce Banner back from the dead with a twist in the new comic The Immortal Hulk. The comic book which was written by Al Ewing (You Are Deadpool) and illustrated by Joey Bennett (X-Men: Age Of Apocalypse Dawn) started off with some guys robbing a convenience store in the first issue. What these thieves didn’t expect is that when they shot the man and the child in the store that the man was going to get up, but this time he gets angry and turns into the Hulk who apparently is the one that controls him. He ends up opening a can of whoop ass that even the cops have never seen. In The Immortal Hulk #2, Bruce is still sort of on the run, but an article in the local newspaper makes him curious to find out some answer while also trying to make the time he has with the Hulk inside him. He ends up hearing some info about a local curse of sorts whose real identity maybe an issue that Bruce Banner knows all to well about.
I feel like with every issue that while it is a continuous story, everything he does is it’s own separate story. He’s kind of a walking vigilante that goes around and helps whoever needs the help of a Hulk. It’s a little different than what I am used to because there is usually a story arc, but this seems to be separate stories within one story arc (reminds me of Quantum Leap and The A-Team). I definitely dig it becaue I think I understand where they are going with it. I definitely can’t wait to see what adventure or where Bruce Banner ends up next. The artwork continues to be impressive and I have enjoyed it from issue to issue. This one was definitely an awesome comic as far as the artwork is concerned and wait till you get to the man on the cover of the comic. I know a lot of people complained about characters like Amadeus Cho who became the Hulk because it wasn’t a Bruce Banner Hulk, but the story made sense even though I wasn’t a huge fan of it. Now, we have the real Hulk back and I hope you guys enjoy this comic as much as I did. Check out my grades below:
