The Hulk is one of my favorite comics every time it comes out but I didn’t like this one as much. I didn’t like that the Red Hulk only was in it for a couple a parts. I really liked when the book was in two parts with the Green Hulk in the beginning and the Red Hulk in the end. The stories were shorter but I liked that I could read about two different Hulks and their different stories in the same book.
I thought that some of the parts where the Green Hulk was picking his team was confusing. I know Silver Surfer and Namor but I couldn’t figure out the other guy was Dr. Strange until my dad told me who it was. It was weird that everyone knew who the Silver Surfer was but he didn’t know who anyone else was because they grabbed him at a different time.
I do like the idea that the Hulk has to put together his own team. I’m not sure why he picked those guys for his team, but I like the idea that the Hulk is going to be the leader of his own team and that if they win they get all their wishes and the other team gets killed. I thought it would have been better if the Hulk picked Thor and Iron Man and all of the other big guys that he used to fight in all the other issues. I think that would have been a bit of a tougher team, too.
My favorite part of the book was when there was the two page section with Red Hulk and his team. I wasn’t thinking that the Red Hulk and his gang were going to be the team that the Green Hulk had to beat, but I liked it. I liked seeing Tiger Shark there, too since I was reading about him in Deadpool. He was drawn differently here than he was in Deadpool and I’m not sure which one I liked more. They’re both good drawings. The end was okay. I thought it was interesting that the one guy thought his secret weapon to win was going to be to make the Green Hulk really smart. He’s been dumb in all the issues that I’ve been reading so it was weird to see him talking like a regular person and wearing clothes. I think it could be cool.
I always like the art. I like how the Hulks are always drawn so huge. And the parts where the Green Hulk was fighting the people in space was really nice to look at. The artist in this book draws everyone in a very cool way. They look bigger and tougher in this book than where I see them in other books. The Red Hulk pages with him and his gang was the best part of the book.
I really like the idea of the two different Hulks having their own teams of people to go battle each other. I just wish that they would have had a bit more action in this issue either fighting each other or some other people. But I am looking forward to seeing the big battle of the two groups in the next issue.
My Rating: 8 out of 10
