Issue Review
 
by RikerDonegal: Enjoyable average fare.
Once again Banner is held at the military base, close to a cure. Once again, a villain/monster attacks the base and the Hulk is called into action. It's follows the formula of many other stories but adds one or little touches that distinguish it. A little.
The ties to the High Evolutionary and the mild reveal at the end are interesting.
6/10

  Only the High Evolutionary tie-in kept me from rating this comic one star. The story reminded me a whole lot of Iron Man #36.

  Good ending + High Evolutionary kept this weak story from being a total failure, but it was still poor.

  I hate High Evolutionary stories. That guy has never had a project that he didn't screw up.

  This may be the best Trimpe art to date; the compositions, backgrounds and plotting are excellent. Severin inks are exceptional here. The antagonist appears rather silly, but the payoff, albeit quite corny, is so obvious but I was surprised (I is knucklehead). This script is pretty good. I'm a sucker for the Hulk and I loved this book. Even the coloring is worth a mention. (4)

  Oh dear God... What did I do to deserve the punishment of a bad Hulk comic?

  I had fun with this one, but why did General Ross think that the Inheritor would stay trapped in there, after he was able to walk through the walls of the place?

  Spoiler alert: the Inheritor is a cockroach. There, now don't bother reading the comic.

  3 stars for the rise and fall of the Inheritor!!! I didn't mind the little guy, I mean he's no Scarlet Beetle, but come on!!!

Cover Me - The Inheritor is all gold on the cover!!

Duct Tape - You'd think that the tranq attachment would be secured better on Hulk's arm...

Rocket Roach - I think the Inheritor should've already reverted back to a cockroach when he was in space. Since it took place before Thor #134!!!

  The cockroaches will inherit the Earth!!

John Severin inks without a heavy hand, and combined with Herb Trimpe's dynamic layouts, this is one of the best looking Hulk issues in a while.
