The Rundown: Roxxon introduces a threat designed to either kill the Hulk or kill his movement before it takes off.
As Gamma Flight laments their new circumstances, a massive gamma radiation spike will get them in gear. McGee is running for her life as massive monsters wreak havoc actoss the city and Hulk and his team attempt to stop them. With casualties piling up, Hulk continues to fight to what he thinks is victory. Unfortuantelye, killing these creatures unleashes something much worse.
At the same time, Minotaur is gathering intel on Hulk and his team and as the battle takes a turn for the worse, he unleashes the next part of his plan.
The Story: Al Ewing takes the story and characters to a dark place in this issue. All of the character conflicts continue to be compelling and interesting to see unfold. The relationship between Bruce and Betty continues to intrigue me. Minotaur’s plans are well crafted and seeing how Hulk and company react to them is incredibly entertaining. The stakes are getting raised and Ewing has made this issue thrilling to read.
The Art: Joe Bennett delivers some fantastic and brutal visuals in this issue. From the damage Hulk is taking to the creatures on the rampage, the panels are filled with detail and the action is visceral and exciting.
