Particularly a little less hulk-smashing and a little more Bruce smashing his head against the wall trying to get a grip around his life. Sadly, no matter how hard he tries, his hands are too small and the Hulk's destroy everything they meet.
Brilliant writing coupled with Tim Sale's endearing art.
Can't recommend enough.
The illustrations are phenomenal and work well with the throwback gray hulk.
This book is a great take on the 24hrs after Dr. Banner's accident. Another piece of the Hulk's origin story.
I have read "Batman-The long Halloween", "Superman-A Man for All Seasons", and even "Catwoman-When in Rome". All great stories that impressed me so I decided to check out some of their stories for Marvel. Hulk:Gray blew me away.
The story and art are just amazing. The interaction between the characters is great, especially between the hulk and Betty. The action is well paced. There is even a great throwdown between hulk and Tony Stark in his original Iron Man armor!!!
The animosity between the hulk and General "Thunderbolt" Ross is particlarly intense. The hulk just wants to be left alone and Ross just continues to hound him (and waste alot of expensive military equipment in the process). You have to wonder who the real monster is. General Ross is a obnoxious, loudmouth bully who constantly abuses his power for his own means. The Hulk at least tries to protect his friends Betty and Rick, in his own way.
The only thing that was never clarified is why the hulk was originally gray. Doctor Banner spoke a little about this subject to Doc Samson but it was never really answered. Not really a complaint just a question.
I really enjoyed this book. I loved it so much I recently picked up "Spiderman:Blue" and "Daredevil:Yellow". I'll pick up "Captain America:White" as soon as its released as well. I Hope they will work with Marvel again and I look forward to their future work. Once again; great book!!
It's competent and entertaining. It is not exeptional or brilliant, but it's solid. Loeb did not bring anything new to the Hulk mythos with Grey. It's not as meaningfull for the character as Blue was for Spider-Man. But it's good fun.
Tim Sale on the other hand is as good as ever. His one of the best artist in comics today. His take on Hulk is exeptional. I dont like the big culturist/ wrestler/ superhero type of Hulk, that is Marvel's house style. To me, Hulk is a monster, a creature from nightmares and Tim Sale captures this perfectly.
What makes Hulk: Grey special, and what reviewers often write about, is... the disney charm to the story. It's like a Disney movie, with Betty Ross as disney princess. It's defenetly worth picking up for that.
