This issue has been getting a bit of a kicking on the net, mainly because of Steve Dillon’s art and how his Hulk is hardly hulking at all, and yes, Dillon’s not really the best fit for this character and it was weird seeing a skinny bald Hulk, but once you look past that, this was actually really rather good, and a very fun twist on the Hulk concept. The twist is basically now that it’s not Bruce Banner getting angry that triggers a transformation, it’s the Hulk calming down which unleashes Banner. Jason Aaron has a lot of fun with the duel narration from both sides in this issue, and it’s interesting to see that their thought processes are very similar up to a point. It’s also a cool conceit that we never actually see what Banner is up to, the Hulk wakes up and comes face to face with a crazy situation he has to deal with. In this issue’s case it was a team-up with the Punisher (and hey, Steve Dillon can draw him) against some kind of weird Dog-Man or Man-Dog. Aaron excels at coming up with weird semi-comedic villains and Pit Bull was one of them, a mad idea that worked better than you could have expected. This arc looks like being very enjoyable, especially since the out-of-place Dillon is only doing one issue, next time out we’ve got the Hulk waking up in Atlantis, what the heck is going on?

I think I'm gonna tap out of this run.

The other Hulk book is lightyears ahead.

Dillon's Hulk does suck though

I'm starting to consider the same thing, how's that haunting storyline panning out so far?

Sold!

I've got the first 30 issues so it shouldn't be too hard to catch up to speed.

Just skip to Parker's run. The Loeb stuff is best left forgotten.
