Issue Review
 
RikerDonegal
   October 9, 2017
Feels like a summer blockbuster.

A Hulk/Thing team-up with a decent story? What's not to love?

It opens with attacks on the heroes. A lazy way to start a story, it must be said, but it actually works well here given that the attacker is not the villain of the story.

Turns out the Hulk and the Thing are being forced to help a powerful alien in a fight against the real villain, whose insane plan will bring about the end of... everything.

All the two heroes bring to the table is brute strength so the climax basically boils down to them being strong enough to knock the villain over and into the means of his own demise. That's all. Nothing more.

But despite its simplicity, it's a comic that works. The pace is fast and there's huge enjoyment to be had from seeing these two heroes team up.

8/10

  Could've easily been a regular-sized issue. Which means I wuz robbed again.

I know Stranger can change his size. And he does. IN EVERY FREAKIN PANEL!

Demons in underpants, of course...

Couldn't they just destroy the machine and go home?

The main characters fought each other for dumb reasons like 7 times. I know Hulk's impulsive, but c'mon.

So many useless panels and narration.

And was last panel supposed to be a joke? I hope I'm just missing a page. And actually, I'm not. So yeah.

Also I didn't like the art.

I had a bad day... Don't touch me!

  I was wavering between 3 and 4 stars, and then came The Thing's "decanting" comment. I'm such a softy.

  Why do I get my hopes set high when I see the Stranger? I think it will be a great issue, and it ends up sucking. This is no different.
