Bruce Banner has given an address to the world from the hidden Shadow Base he now controls. A message that signifies that he has declared war against humanity. A war that is unique in who and what he will target.

Bruce brings in Amadeus Cho to explain to him why he is doing what he’s doing and the former Hulk warns his friend about the dangers of letting the rage of the Hulk take over. All the while, a mysterious and familiar face looks on who has a plan of his own for Bruce to consider.

With the world changing, others decide to both exploit Banner’s newfound exposure and others decide that it is time to come out of the shadows themselves.

The Story: After spending so many issues concentrating on the plight of the monster, Al Ewing transitions into a story about the man and effectively makes Bruce Banner almost as terrifying as his alter-ego. The dialogue signifies a serious and tense story going forward for the characters and characters like Samson and others are given reign to speculate and ponder this new Bruce Banner. I love the nature, pace and tone of this issue. It’s going to be interesting to see where this story goes next.

The Art: Joe Bennett perfectly captures the dark, ominous tone of this story through some beautiful visuals and a healthy use of shadow. I love the reveal towards the end of the issue and it’s worth picking up to be surprised by it yourself.
