    I would not recommend...

    A while back I read some gray hulk books by Peter David and found them to be pretty cool (actually hit or miss, but the hits were very good). I didn't follow it consistantly. This Xmas I got a gift card so I thought I'd get my "superhero on" and buy something related. I had picked Geoff John's GREEN LANTERN, but at the last second decided, mostly due to reviews on a competing seller's site to go with Peter David's HULK Visionaries #4 for nostalgia. I just finished reading it and would love to ask those 8 souls that claimed it was a masterpiece what were they talking about. One of the selling points was that it was the run that Peter David had an issue with the editors and almost walked from the book. I can see why there was an issue between David and the editors...<BR/><BR/>It's really really bad. The writing is a muddled mess with the Hulk in dumb situations, or dumber than usual, and the art is at times unprofessional. No, it's mostly unprofessional. My chief complaint is the art because at least cool art will overcome bad writing but the combination is garbage. <BR/><BR/>One of the selling points for me was that WEREWOLF BY NIGHT was supposedly in it. Yeah, there was a werewolf but was it THAT werewolf? It was just some mindless thing for Hulk to smash. <BR/><BR/>The villains were of the throw away variety - mostly Glorian (A fifth rater at best who belongs in badly written Marvel Team Ups). Hulk had some issues also with hell and demons but again it was muddled. Hint if you think Hulk is fighting the A-list characters on the cover. He doesn't. It's a 3 caption dream sequence.<BR/><BR/>The absolute worse point, that made no sense to me and it's all in the bad writing, was Hulk is working in Vegas. Okay. He's frustrated and wants to fight someone to let off some steam. Okay. It's a superhero book. He's superstrong. I get it he wants some action and he wants someone to help him blow off steam and give him a challenge. You with me? The entire book is the Hulk going around beating up people. Not superpeople, just people. A mysterious guy tells him where to fight tough guys and the Hulk follows his direction. He wants a fight very badly so he goes to a biker bar and beats up bikers. Surprise surprise they're not tough to beat because HE'S THE HULK! He then moves on the some boxing gym and beats up boxers. Wow, they're not very tough because HE'S THE HULK!! It goes like this all issue with Hulk beating regular people and being frustrated they don't give him a fight. That my friends is absolutely stupid. If the Hulk wants a fight he could find anyone of a million superpowered characters/mutants throughout the Marvel kingdom and throwdown. Find Wolverine. Find Thor. Find Captain America even. But we have a whole issue of Hulk smacking around bikers, boxers and mobsters demanding someone be strong enough to actually hurt him. What? I paid for action and I get Hulk picking on regular boxers (and him beating up Hulk Hogan!) Uh, how about the Thing? The closest thing to real solid action in the entire book was a brief fight with Iron Man that was actually staged by the two inorder to both get what they want.<BR/><BR/>Okay, you get it. I didn't like it. I was stunned I got the entire bad run portion of Peter David in one book and should have looked elsewhere for my superhero fix. I'm more mad at myself than Peter David for changing my order.
