Incredible Hulk #601 Review

Written by Fred Van Lente & Greg Pak

+ Bruce Banner is a dick and I love it. Without the Hulk, he's no longer puny Banner and, after everything everyone has done to him, he's not letting anyone push him around anymore, not even his own son, Skaar. Banner actually feels like a character moreso than a vehicle for the Hulk now.
+ "Amadeus Cho, aka that smart kid who hangs out with Hercules."
+ How they pick a fight with Juggernaut was priceless. Can't believe I forgot it when doing up the Moments of the Week.
- Not much else happens outside of confirming there's no more gamma radiation/chance of Banner becoming the Hulk after what the Red Hulk did to him recently. Just exposition after exposition for most of the issue.
- Skaar is still an uninspired character that I can't seem to like no matter how many chances I give him.
- Ship without a rudder describes the current status quo. There's no real direction to the story at this point. It's simply going to consist of Skaar touring the Marvel Universe as Banner picks fights with other characters to toughen him up enough to kill the Hulk whenever he eventually returns.
- Savage She-Hulk back-up did nothing for me.

Verdict - Check It. Was hoping this would be as entertaining as Pak's last run on Incredible Hulk, but it was a really slow issue that wasted a lot of time on exposition and recaps instead of establishing a plot to grab readers. I'm going to pass on anymore of this series unless I start hearing Planet Hulk-like praise for it.
