All the anticipation was worth it. Mark Waid and Leinil Yu have managed to create the best comic yet for Marvel NOW! Indestructible Hulk begins with Bruce Banner turning over a new leaf. Banner is no longer the tortured soul trying to find a cure for his curse. As he mentions in the issue, Bruce has reached an epiphany. The Hulk is incurable, so instead of wasting his efforts looking for a cure, Banner instead plans on using his mind to make the world a better place.
Mark Waid seems to be using his Daredevil techniques for this new Hulk comic. Both Daredevil and the Hulk were written as more tragic characters before Waid took over. Now, both characters have a new positive look on life, and the books have only benefited. With this positive approach, Indestructible Hulk #1 is brimming with fun and enjoyment.
The only real downside is that Yu’s action scenes are a bit chaotic. During Hulk’s big confrontation with the Thinker, it is hard to figure out what exactly is going on. That being said, the rest of the book is a real looker. I didn’t know so many dynamic angles could take place in a diner!
Indestructible Hulk joins Marvel NOW! as the best book yet. Mark Waid has once again proven himself as a master of all things super.
