Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In recent years, writer Loeb and artist Sale have collaborated on contemporary treatments of early phases of Marvel superheroes' careers, titled after colors in their costumes ("Spider-Man: Blue," "Daredevil: Yellow"). This book's title refers to the color of the Hulk in his first issue, in 1962. Loeb and Sale tell the story of the 48 hours after Bruce Banner first became the Hulk. They present a slightly revised version of Banner's initial transformation, and most of the rest of the work consists of new sequences set within the time frame of the Hulk's first issue. Inventively, the authors have a present-day Banner narrate this story in a session with psychiatrist Leonard "Doc" Samson. Through their comments, Loeb explores the psychology of the principal characters: Banner and the Hulk; his nemesis, General "Thunderbolt" Ross; Ross's introverted daughter, Betty, who loves Banner; and Banner's teenage confidant, Rick Jones. In doing so, Loeb raises questions about these characters' motivations that, until now, haven't been incisively investigated. Loeb deftly builds on the classic work of the past without making major revisions, reinterpreting it to expose and illuminate its underlying psychological depths. Sale's art blends caricature and realism, explosive action and ominous mood, capturing the spirit of Hulk co-creator Jack Kirby's work while creating an independently quirky style.

    Not as good as Spider-Man Blue or Daredevil Yellow. This is more a slanted Bruce Banner version of events rather than a true telling. Would have been better to see an opposing view like General Ross' or perhaps an objective side like Rick's.

    Hulk Gray... Smash!

    I haven't been a comic book reader for too long, but once I read Long Halloween from Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale my brain wanted more. I came across the Marvel Color series (don't know if that is the official name of it) with Spiderman Blue and Daredevil Yellow and Hulk Gray. This series is one of my all time favorites.

    The Hulk Gray issue, and the others in the series, really show you more of an emotional side of the characters. I guess you could say they romanticize the characters and their loves. With Hulk, it is of course, Betty Ross. A large part of this comic was used as a base in the newest Hulk movie with Ed Norton.

    I highly recommend this for any Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale fan, both are wonderful at what they do and Sale's unique art style is a fresh breath. I look forward to the new Captain America White series.
