  1. Only if you think comics are good. I guess nothing's that good. Maybe it's just the expectation gap between mainstream 2019 superhero comic and the masterclass Al Ewing is giving, backed up by meticulous horror artwork that reminds me of Bissette and Wrightson on Swamp Thing. Ewing has also proudly built the story on the foundations of Hulk history, but it doesn't feel like continuity mining — it feels like what's on the page is just the tip of an iceberg, with a bigger story underneath. Come to think of it, if you look at it as an homage to Hulk in the form of a horror comic, it's amazing.
  2. Yeah. Remember how the "best comics of the year" threads used to ask if there was anything published of the calibre of Sandman or Dark Knight Returns or whatever, and there was usually nothin'? Well then: Immortal Hulk.
  3. You're all still reading Immortal Hulk, aren't you? If there's a better superhero comic being published, I'd love to know about it.

  5. Thanks, I don't think I'd heard of that one.
  6. Just finished the last episode of season 1. Wow! I nearly dropped it after episode 2 because I thought there were no surprises for someone who's read the comics. Damn, was I wrong! They kept the concepts but made the story their own. There's so much to like, I wouldn't know where to start praising it. I guess the casting... the characters weren't true to the comics, but the casting was amazing. Even Karl Urban's accent improved! (He still lapses into New Zealand occasionally, for what it's worth.) Despite being f*cked-up, it's easy viewing. Showrunner Eric Kripke is one of the people behind the equally-likeable Supernatural and the similarities are there. Definite thumbs-up from me.
  7. Yeah. It reminded me of how f*cking great X-Statix was. I wouldn't have known the Giant-Sized book existed if you hadn't mentioned it in this thread a couple of pages ago, so thank you. Remember how pumped we were on here when the writer of X-Force and X-Statix was tipped to take over Hellblazer?
  8. Somehow I forgot to read the final issue when it came out, and only just read it last weekend. That issue felt like kind of a letdown — everything important had already happened, the story was over, the ""twist"" was such a standard comicbook trope I had to use two sets of quotes on it. But you're right about the level of craft. The ending makes more sense if you read the series as a Mark-Millar-style treatment for a movie or TV show. At the time I thought the Super Mullet was ridiculous. But looking back, if we didn't have it, we'd have one less part of the 90s. If that makes sense.
