So the trades were just released recently for those of us who skip these events to wait for that kind of thing. I picked up the main WWH trade and the WWH: Incredible Herc trade (which is actually Hulk issues, not Herc issues) and started reading them concurrently. I re-read Planet Hulk a week ago and am still a big fan.
So having read the first two issues of WWH…what the fu? First off I have to say what the heck happened to JRJR? This art is horrible, cartoony, rushed, no detail, and Hulk looks laughable. They should have kept the same artist from PH.
The first issue was a little underwhelming as nothing really happens except for an off-panel fight with black bolt. We also dont really get anything with the warbound. This leads me to my other problem so far - that the perspective has changed from hulk-centered to a much more omniscient view that keeps us as outsiders to Hulk and his crew. This is very jarring coming after PH where we were so steeped in Hulk’s mind and that of the warbound
The incredible hulk issues help fill in some of the gaps in terms of what’s going on with the Hulk and the art is better too.
Also who the hell is Sentry? Whose bright idea was that? He seems really stupid and I see a deus ex machina in my future…
anyway, no spoilers until im done plz
