|IMMORTAL HULK No. 13, April 2019|
Similarly as successful is the Brazilian artist’s awesome-looking sketches of an emaciated Hulk pounding away at all manner of horned demons in a furiously desperate attempt to rid the Below Place of the flesh-chomping fiends. Absolutely packed full of thunderous punches, eye-winching bites and limb-wrenching amputations, this extensive fight sequence between the titular character and the One Below All’s seemingly endless minions never lets up, even when the gamma-enhanced giant’s blue-skinned side-kick is literally torn asunder before his horrified eyes; “Get up, Jones! Get up and fight! Jones!”
Of course, that isn’t to say that Ewing’s penmanship doesn’t provide a modicum of entertainment as well, as the Absorbing Man’s sub-plot to outwit Brian Banner by failing to succumb to the villain’s mantra of “Strength without pity. Strength without judgement” demonstrates. Predominantly an arch-nemesis of the Asgardian God of Thunder, Thor Odinson, the Bronx-raised criminal could so easily have “beaten the living crap outta” the supposedly mild-mannered suited figure before him once the former Master Of Evil had absorbed the properties of some surrounding rock. But much to Eugene Judd’s apparent delight, Creel choses to release “the Banner half” of the Hulk instead, and subsequently imbue the Green Goliath with all of his much-missed formidable potency.
