Issue Review
 
RikerDonegal
   September 12, 2017
Derivative but - despite that - it works really well.

It's about yet another secret community (the Marvel Universe is positively littered with them!). And there's a power struggle. (Of course there is. All these hidden cities have one rotten apple.)

What Does the Villain Want? He wants the leadership position. But, in this issue, he's kept in the background. And does very little. The conflict, action and drama come from the Hulk trying to rescue his friends not from the villain.

The friends, it should be noted, behave like Grade-A assholes and berate the Hulk for interfering. Terrible. But - oddly - it, too, works.

Of course, the Hulk in action is always cool.

9/10

  -I found this issue to be exhausting. Dogwood is a half-baked version of HIM.

  Rick, Betty, and Fred deserve whatever they get for complaining when Hulk tried to rescue them. F***ing morons.

  Can the changelings change into something more useful, like toilet paper?
