  Good Will Hulking

  A few too many overt King Kong references, but I did enjoy the brutality of the Red Shirt death.

  I've really been enjoying Len Wein's take on Hulk these past few issues. He has made Hulk more dynamic and multifaceted without overly changing the foundation of the character.

  I agree Len Wein is doing a really good job on this book, much better than expected, though these issues are sentimental to me, they are also good!

  Galileo would have something to say regarding the understanding of gravity shown on the last page, or rather lack of understanding.

  Extra star for Hulk deciding to smash the rain.

  The story was decent and Hulks dialogue is brilliantly funny. 3 stars.

  Weak ending to a good run of Hulk books. Nothing really had any impact, from the weak villain, to the death of a character we only met the page before, just couldn't really find myself caring too much.
Banner getting a lot paying job in whatever place he wakes up in is very reminiscent of the TV show, though I'm pretty sure there was no electricity monster on there.
Is it just me or did that skyscraper look like the world biggest stack of huge boxes?

  Aww man, I wuz robbed! I wanted to see Hulk smash stupid water from sky!

The transient stories are some of the best Hulk stories produced. I think these types of stories were what the TV show creators were looking at. In the case of the comics, it helps to let the supporting cast develop and breathe on their own. The subplot involving Talbot is getting interesting, and it could go just about anywhere.

3 stars. Not real fond of Zzzax, but his absorbing the thoughts of the guy he killed was a curious twist.

  Nothing special and it didn't really go anywhere, but it's still pleasantly enjoyable. Hulk is great and it's nice seeing Bruce Banner actually getting some time to develop a character of his own.

  I'm enjoying that Hulk does a lot of travelling instead of staying in one area.
