    The Story: Johnson continues to craft an interesting and entertaining story that brilliantly delivers on the horror elements of this particular arc. The story is engaging and the haunted nature of Banner continues to be entertaining. I continue to enjoy the struggles the character is facing while also getting to see the emergence of the monsters that he ultimately faces.

    The Art: Earls delivers on the scares and horror of the story with art that is beautifully conceived and executed.

    I’ve already said it, but I’ll say it again, I love everything about this book. Johnson is crafting an intriguing horror story with Marvels biggest, scariest character right in the middle of it. The creatures he’s come up with are larger than life, elemental horrors that can do more than physical or mental damage. They can attack the psyche. Not only that, Hulk has someone he actually wants to protect. These factors bring stakes to a character that is otherwise invulnerable. All that said, this issue has the two most important things in comics going for it: It’s fun to read and it’s fun to look at it.

    I continue to enjoy this Hulk series overall and its leisurely way of moving through the journey and the larger fight that’s going on. Danny Earles coming on as the guest artist gives us a great look for New Orleans but also showing us a Banner that’s getting worse and going through some real hell here on multiple levels. I love their take on the city itself and what Charlie ends up going through which Wilson’s color design hits perfectly. Johnson’s taking the time to move through all of this in a good way since it doesn’t feel decompressed overall and is helping to build toward the larger fight and elements going on in the story. I’m still excited to see where else it goes and what it reveals.

    New Orleans is a perfect place to take this Incredible Hulk story, as it continues its gruesome and fabulous run. Guest artist Danny Earls does a fantastic job when it comes to the gnarliest and most chilling frames, but there’s a lot to be desired when it comes to the more subtle elements of the character. Still, the moments that need to hit really hit, and Hulk keeps chugging along as one of Marvel’s most wonderful rides.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    The Incredible Hulk #9 begins a new story arc for Bruce and Charlie as they come into contact with a new monster from New Orleans. While the Bruce and Hulk portions of the comic are more expository and short, the slowly built up mystery and menace with Frozen Charlotte was still good. The tone and pacing of the comic make it feel like the beginning of a crime noir type of story but with the Hulk.

    A nice intro to a new story arc, involving gruesome murders in New Orleans and a scary old lady. The plot is laid out nicely and guest artist Danny Earls is a nice change of pace, his style resembling a grittier Mike Allred. And the scary old lady (Frozen Charlotte, I presume?) is a very intriguing character. Can’t wait to see what happens next.

    While a slow start, the new arc is bound to pick up and reach a certain high. While interesting in terms of setting and plot, issue #9 felt rather slow and just barely dragging the reader along.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics

    The Incredible Hulk #9 feels like the start of a record stuck on repeat. Phillip Kennedy Johnson moves Banner and Charlie to New Orleans against any form of common sense, and the monster-of-the-month model gets even more confusing when the monster they encounter appears by coincidence. Either Johnson never had a story to tell, or he’s biding his time on the title until something better comes along.
