You have got to get this issue of the Incredible Hulk; it is one of the best books that has came out this summer. I know it is my favorite one of the week! I mean there is action, secret prisons, deception, guest stars, and many more surprises.
Issue #12 is part 5 of the “Stay Angry” storyline and we find the Hulk in a secret prison. How do we know it is a secret prison? Well, we see a government official briefing the heroes in Antarctica about their mission. Their mission is to get an intruder out. That intruder was Bruce Banner aka the Hulk. The heroes chosen for the mission are the Thing and Wolverine.
As Wolverine and the Thing are going to the sub-levels of the complex, we see that the Hulk is actually trying to stay calm. Why you ask? Because he knows that Banner wants him angry for some reason. He is trying to remain calm, but a robotic pest keeps poking him which of course pisses him off. He finally loses it and starts to destroy the prison’s robotic security. Wolverine and the Thing hear his cries and leap into action.
That is when I turned the page and saw the coolest 2 page panel I have seen in a long time (see above image). I immediately looked for the image for the review. I had to piece the two halves together, but it was worth it. Don’t you think? Anyway, the Hulk did some serious damage to these guys. In fact, he used the Thing as a means to escape. The Hulk wanders off, and they let him go because in a way their mission was accomplished.
The issue ends with the Hulk strapped to a chair watching a video feed of Banner explaining he has a cure now for the Hulk and he is about to use it. It turns out that during the course of “Stay Angry”, the Hulk was helping Banner and he didn’t even realize it until it was too late. Is it too late? We will have to wait and see.
This issue blew my mind. The artwork is intense and it is very well written. Jason Aaron is a genius! I definitely recommend this issue to all comic fans. Hell, even if you don’t read comics, you should enjoy this issue. I give this book a 15 out of 10 rating. It is that damn good!
