Holy crap.

The Immortal Hulk has become a sensation at Marvel Comics.  Why has it done so well?  I believe it is the approach of writer Al Ewing, who has taken the character of the Hulk and placed him into the genre of horror.  It has been a great success as there have been some shockingly scary moments through the first 18 issues.

However, issue 19 takes it to another level.

Wow.  I cannot believe some of the things that I have seen.  The comic is remarkably compelling and shockingly graphic at times.  The artwork fits beautifully into the tone and feel of the presentations.

And the last five or six pages are just brilliantly gore-tastic that I’m amazed that I saw it in a comic book from Marvel.  I also have a hard time believing that what I saw happen, just happened.  Those final pages are set up throughout the entire issue, though you do not realize it until it is too late.

I can’t wait to find out what happens next.

The Immortal Hulk has been the best non-mini-series Marvel Comic of the year so far (and it has been great for its entire run) and you are missing some of the best work anywhere if you are not reading it.
