Incredible Hulk #11 (Breath of the Skunk Ape Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Jul 28, 2012 10:12 am

Another really enjoyable issue of Incredible Hulk, this is Jason Aaron at his best I think, taking stupid concepts and making them feel real and giving them consequences. So here we’ve got whacky stuff like the Hulk fighting Bigfoot, but Aaron creates a pretty cool mythology for the Sasquatches of the Marvel Universe, so it doesn’t feel dumb. And then there’s Kraven The Hunter. This was a great take on the character, he was a bad-ass here, but Aaron also made sure to keep the darkness, the suicidal nature he’s had ever since he was brought back. And he also had a bazooka that shot bear-traps. The perfect melding of silly and serious. I still have reservations by exactly what Banner’s plan is. It’s all well and good taking us on this wild ride, but where is it all going? By the looks of the cover to #12 it has something to do with Wolverine, and now it seems like he’s got a Bigfoot Cub? Wha? Dalibor Talajic’s art was very strong, perhaps the best work I’ve seen from him, reminding me at times of Eduardo Risso. This hasn’t just been a tour of the Marvel Universe’s corners, it’s also been a tour of great artists.

Watch out, Baby Bigfoot. Wolverine is the best there is at what he does, and what he does is slice and dice children.
