Jason Aaron takes over the Hulk, and it’s pretty damn good. I was sceptical beforehand because I like the Hulk when the book sticks to the traditional Hulk/Banner conflict and doesn’t mess around with it, and splitting the two apart goes directly against that, but Aaron being attached made me overlooked that and I’m glad, because even though they are physically split, they are still very much linked. Almost all of Hulk’s thoughts are about Banner and how much he hates him, and from little we see of Bruce, he’s equally obsessed with ol’ Jade-Jaws. It was also great how Aaron introduced new characters like Amanda Von Doom and reinterpreted old ones like the Moloids, I never thought I’d see a sexy Moloid, but now I have. Marc Silvestri’s art was decent, a little uneven, his Hulk looks amazingly good, as do his monsters, but the ordinary people look as 90s as ever, but the focus is really his Hulk, and as I said, it’s as good as Hulk as you’ll see, plus he has a beard!

Great Book. Like Punchy I didn't really know what to expect out of this, but I really really liked it. The art was kinda meh. I'm usually a silvestri fan, but it didn't quite fit for me. The story really surprised me. I am very much looking forward to Hulk vs Banner.

I dig the Hulk with a beard. Aside from that this was just good enough to check out the next issue.

It's good, but Banner as a mad scientist could easily end up dumb, I'm not a fan of Silvestri, and there's a few other things I worry might impact the book in a dumb way. But I like Aaron and I love the Hulk, so at least it's not Loeb and RULK and it's not too tied in with all that Fear Itself junk.

This was pretty good. I hate Silvestri's style these days... how the hell did the guy who used to be awesome on X-Men back in the day, and was actually better than Jim Lee IMO, turn into this scratchy mess?

But I really like the setup, and the issue as a whole.

I hope the ending is a fakeout, though, because the idea of Bruce being the villain of the book is retarded.

i haven't read the book yet, but wasn't the fact that Banner was gonna be the antagonist in the book in pretty much every interview?

I have not read any interviews, but I still hope it's a fakeout. It's a stupid idea. Especially making him some crazy Dr. Moreau type guy out of nowhere.

For all we know being one of the Worthy may have effected Banners mind more than hulk

I like the book but it is such a tremendous jump from what Hulk had been over the last few years that it was kinda shocking to the system. I dig Silvestri's art most of the time but this was a bit to scratchy and all over the place, still good though. I think I need to read more about how the Mad Scientist Banner came about before giving a final verdict on this part of the story. I just don't see someone that always wanted to rid himself of the Hulk trying to create more Hulks, that part just really through me for a loop. I will comeback for at least a couple more issues to see where it goes.

Perhaps the Hulk forcing a physical separation between himself and Banner has left some unintended consequences for both Hulk and Banner. Banner appears to have become more savage and single-minded while the Hulk, who has previously only ever wanted to be left alone, appears to be trying to find something more.
