Hulk: Season One by Fred Van Lente
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Puny rebooted origin story.
Maybe it’s just because Hulk has never been one of my favorite characters, but this one left me completely flat. The updates to the original story of nerdy Bruce Banner getting a rage filled monster as an alter ego stick so closely to the original that it barely seems worth the effort, and the attempts to tie it all into Banner’s subconscious issues created by childhood trauma didn’t add much either. The art is also messy and never delivers the kind of scale and power I think the Hulk requires to work well.
Overall, this was just a swing and a miss.
