This ‘Stay Angry’ storyline is shaping up to be a seriously wild ride. After last month’s team-up with The Punisher against a talking dog, the Hulk is now shoved into an underwater Western of all things! Jason Aaron is really letting his imagination run wild with this story, and it’s really enjoyable to see the Hulk wake up with as little idea of what’s going on as we do, and then try to make his way through one crazy situation after another. It’s also interesting to try and puzzle out what the hell Banner is up to, he swapped a finger for something, then he used Hulk’s body to smuggle out some kind of magic rock from the sea-bed, and now he’s in space? What the hell is going on? This book is truly unpredictable at the moment, and I love it. Pasqual Ferry comes in on art for this one, and he’s an improvement over Steve Dillon, who really struggled with the Hulk. Ferry did fine with the big green guy, and his style was perfect for the otherworldly nature of the underwater village. This story just what I want from a Jason Aaron Marvel comic, off-beat craziness, blistering action, and strong characterisation, and after an iffy start, his Incredible Hulk is living up to it’s promise.
