Incredible Hulk #8 Review by (January 31, 2024)

Review: The monster battle is the whole issue this time around and it closes out the story arc. Pretty cool if a bit hard to follow in places. What is the connection with the veteran’s group we saw last time? And who is Uncle Sal, the Ghost Rider?

Comments: Issue includes a text article on the history of Jinni Dagaal. Nic Klein did the colors for the Banner dream sequences.
