More fun action from Marvel’s movie-stars, as details of the Zodiac’s plot continue to emerge. I was very intrigued by the opening bit, with the mysterious voice talking to the members of Zodiac and guiding them to his will. Who is this disembodied voice? He wants cosmic balance or something, it has to be someone we know, a classic Avengers villain. The fight between Iron Man and Taurus was very good, Bagley really is the perfect artist for big bright superhero battles. I also like how Bendis has given us an explanation as to why it’s this group of heroes who has to stop this threat. We all know that it’s really because of the movies, but in-universe, it’s because there’s some kind of conspiracy and they have to keep it to themselves. I think Bendis is having a lot of fun writing the Hulk, he’s normally so wordy, so it must be cool to write a big green dude of few words. This title continues to be fairly inessential, but it’s fun and it is whetting my appetite for the film, which is out in less than 2 weeks in the UK! Oh yes.

I find it fairly hilarious that Marvel would price this book at $3.99 when it's clearly geared toward bringing in new readers who might seek it out based on the movie. Seems like poorly thought out move. I won't buy it at that price, and I've been reading comics for about 30 years.

Loved how Hulk acted this whole issue. If that's how Hulk is in the movie, I'll be very excited!
