The Rundown: As Bruce battle the raging Hulk inside him, a new and monstrous threat begins hunting him.

An archeological team discovers an ancient tomb filled with the bodies of dead monsters. Monsters who will use the shutting of the green door as a means of bringing forth a new age of monsters. Monsters who will either kill or use anyone in their way to do it and have begun their hunt for the Hulk.

At the same time, Bruce is still on the run and trying to find a place to be alone. Unfortunately, the Hulk is not done trying to destroy anything or anyone in which Banner might find a momentary peace. As the Hulk returns to bring destruction, a young girl fleeing her violent home will find a kindred spirit in the green behemoth.

The Story: Phillip Kennedy Johnson is taking the Hulk’s story to new depths of darkness and I am loving the direction its taking. There is a fantastic psychological battle playing out between Bruce and Hulk and the story is not shying away from how dark Bruce’s world is getting. Add to that the creatures looking for him and the destruction they’re leaving in their wake and Phillip Kennedy Johnson is gearing up to take both the reader and the Hulk through something dark and destructive.

The Art: Klein delivers some brilliant art throughout the issue. The dark elements of the story are perfectly played out in the visuals with awesome depictions of body horror that capture the tone and mood of the story.
