Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

David's 1987-98 run writing The Incredible Hulk, collected in this series, is highly regarded by Marvel fans as both a highlight in the history of one of the company's longest-running characters and a sterling exception to the decline in quality and popularity that much of Marvel's output experienced through the bulk of that period. In most of his previous appearances, Bruce Banner transformed into the green-skinned, raging Hulk when he was angered. But when David (Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man) took over, the Hulk was gray in color and only came out at night, with less strength than in his green incarnation but greater intelligence and craftiness. Things begin conventionally in Volume 1, but this fifth volume (of an eventual 17 or so, if the series is completed) marks several turning points: the art improves with Keown's arrival; the Hulk first encounters the Pantheon, a superpowered group that will figure largely in his future; and Banner reunites with his estranged wife, Betty, who has recently miscarried his child. Finally, the green Hulk re-emerges, setting up a forthcoming story climax dealing with Banner's multiple personality disorder. Expect interest in the character with the new Hulk film; recommended for all collections.
