Totally Awesome Hulk #20 Review by (May 5, 2020)

Review: Amadeus tries to settle this peacefully with an appeal to reason and fails, abandoning it for scare tactics. Poor Ammy, it looks more and more like killing is the answer, as suggested by his mutant teammates. Some nice aspects to this tale including a thoughtful chat with the lady pastor about fanaticism. Plus, adding bears to any comic makes it better: imagine PERSEPOLIS with bears and you’ll agree.
