HORROR HAS A NAME. You'd never notice the man. He doesn't like to be noticed. He's quiet. Calm. Never complains. If someone were to walk up and shoot him in the head... all he'd do is die. Until night falls. And someone else gets up again. The man's name is Banner. The horror is THE IMMORTAL HULK. Rated T+

Hey Kids! This isn't for kids! This Hulk is not awesome, nor is it incredible. It's a violent monster that is more than willing to smash a puny human until they're as close to death as a comic with a Marvel logo on it will allow.
Reading more like Mr. Hyde from League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, this iteration of the monster apparently needs his Dr. Jekyll like a hole in the head. He's not dumb, he's not even mad, he's just really mean. Remember when Peter David made the Hulk a type of cancer? This particular version of that cancer would be both malignant and unstoppable. Picture the Bruce Jones run without the pesky humanity. Banner's on the run again, from the nighttime.
Highly recommended for those who dislike Amadeus Cho, fans of violent, cathartic justice, and anyone who likes their Marvel Universe a little bit darker.
I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
