    The Incredible Hulk grows darker and gnarlier with every issue, making it a must-read for anyone who loves both Marvel and horror. The body horror elements of the art are as creative as they are outstanding, making them feel different from what we’ve seen in the past. And the dynamic between Bruce, Hulk, and Charlie has created an emotional core to the story with staying invested in. The Incredible Hulk is firing on all cylinders.

    The Story: I continue to love the horror elements at play in this series. The opening sequence of the issue was fantastic. The horror focused tone of this series continues to be a fantastic idea and this story is filled with great moments that are both somber and scary. What makes the drama more compelling is the war between Hulk and Banner among the external horrors they continue to be hunted by.

    The Art: I love the visual style Foreman uses in this issue. There are shades of The Sandman in some of the visuals and they work beautifully with the tone of the story and series.

    Bruce and Charle arrive in Florida and Man-Thing is not their biggest concern.

    This series continues to delve into a supernatural universe that surrounds the Hulk and all the monsters on the planet.

    Art has an interesting classic Polaroid tone that highlights the details and provides a horror atmosphere with a cold color palette.

    There’s a lot to like here and while I like Foreman’s artwork it’s in the vein of Klein’s but has a different feel, especially with Banner himself. The story itself continues to be interesting and I’m glad we’re getting mostly a slow build here as so many books just rush through things in a way that I simply don’t enjoy these days. The time with Banner and Charlie works well and I’m intrigued by the larger story as we still get more to come from Man-Thing/Ted with what’s really going on. The potential is there and it’s laying out the stakes piece by piece.

    Johnson continues to take us on a journey through the macabre wastelands of the Marvel Universe, bringing us to the Man-Thing, in the Louisiana bayou. As the guardian of the Nexus fights to warn the Hulk, his new companion might have run out of luck. The stories creepy, and the art elevates the story, but I’m still not quite there with the direction. Kennedy’s earned some leeway, so I’ll wait for him to hit his stride.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    The Incredible Hulk #4 brings the Green Goliath into contact with the familiar and always strange Man-Thing while introducing a new monster into the series. There are more interactions between Bruce and Charlie that continues to develop their dynamic with Bruce having an excellent moment where he gets real in a way that hits all the right points without feeling condescending or too soft. And of course there’s some shocking developments with Hulk and Man-Thing as the comic sets the stage for a confrontation with the new Swamp Siren.

    A guest artist gives this issue a fresh look (and we’re only on issue #4) with his slightly cartoonier style, providing a knockout story. There’s still a cool battle with Hulk tearing himself out of Man-Thing though the intense green and orange scheme is a bit over the top. Still, we have the Bruce/Charlie dynamic at the center though we’ll have to wait to see what’s really going on.

    There is a lot left to see given the abrupt cliffhanger in The Incredible Hulk #4, but also more to understand what the Eldest has awakened in the void of darkness. Stay tuned for more to come as Johnson continues to deepen the expedition into what monsters await. Be sure to pick this issue up from your local comic book store or online where these comics may be sold.

    The Incredible Hulk #4 visits the balmy state of Florida to confront Hulk with two monsters for the price of one. Banner’s contentious relationship with Charlie is the high point of the writing, and the new monster is super creepy, but Johnson doesn’t incorporate enough information about the Eldest to keep the arc moving, and the guest artist’s style is a step down in quality.
