Review of Hulk No. 7 

Hulk No. 7

Published by Marvel Comics. Written by Jeph Loeb. Art by Arthur Adams and Frank Cho.

The Deal: Writer Jeph Loeb's version of Hulk marches on. This issue, Loeb teams up with artists Arthur Adams and Frank Cho for two different stories starring two different Hulks: Bruce Banner (the green Hulk) and Rulk (the red Hulk). This issue also features a ton of guest stars, including ... well, I won't spoil any surprises.

The Good: OK, with legendary artists like Adams and Cho around, it's almost impossible for the art to suck. And it doesn't. Every page is a thing of beauty. Both artists employ a similar clean, economical, chunky style, but they soar based on their individual talents: Cho rocks when it comes to women and Adams draws monsters better than anyone. So, yeah, the art is pretty much mind-blowingly excellent. Now when it comes to the story ... well, there's good and bad. First the good: Loeb keeps things fun and moving fast. He also packs the story with a lot of your favorite superheroes; as a result, you seem to get a surprise on every page.

The Bad: OK, now the bad: The ongoing mystery about the identity of the red Hulk is not interesting anymore. It's been dragging on for seven issues now. Enough is enough, I say.

The Verdict: It's a fun book. I say buy it now, if only for the incredible art. But if the Rulk's identity isn't revealed in a few months, drop it like a hot potato.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
