    1. Featuring Todd McFarlane before he become a superstar, you can see his art start to evolve into what it later becomes on Spider-Man and Spawn. The stories and characterizations are a bit clunky to start out. Peter David was saddled with a lot of baggage when he came on the book, like a Rick Jones Hulk and the Hulkbusters. He jettisons both during the book in favor of a Jekyll and Hyde version of the Hulk. We get the first Grey Hulk since his earliest days back in the 60's and he has his own dist [...]


    2. Book Info: This collection contains Incredible Hulk issues #331-339.ABSOLUTE RATING: 3/5 starsSTANDARDIZED RATING: <3/5 stars>I think if you're cool with older comics, give this one a chance. For me, what did it in was that it was just a bit too old-fashioned in terms of the writing. Still, it's got to be one of the best things Peter David has put out there in his career as a comic book writer. A couple issues into this trade, I quickly got the impression that David had a serious vision [...]


    3. 3.0 stars. This omnibus collects one of the better Hulk runs featuring stories by Peter David and art by Todd McFarlane. I particularly enjoyed the "Grey" Hulk hanging out in Vegas under the name Mr. Fixit.


    4. I gave my review of the Incredible Hulk: Ground Zero trade paperback the title of "The beginning of a legend." Little did I realize that Marvel was soon to release a collection of Hulk stories from an even earlier point in the tenure of fan-favorite scribe Peter David: the actual beginning.Finally freed from the depths of Bruce Banner's soul, the crafty gray Hulk starts taking steps to eliminate his human alter-ego permanently; steps which include turning to one of his oldest enemies for help. M [...]


    5. David was saddled with some dumbass Hulk plotlines, but he and McFarlane managed to turn a bland all-ages book into one of the most subversive and literary Marvel offerings of the mid-80s. Viewed in retrospect, David's ability to coax meaning and depth out of Marvel's silly crossover continuity is nothing short of remarkable. McFarlane's art was at its best when he was doing ASM, but it's nice to see him coming into his own here. Dale Keown remains the definitive Hulk illustrator, though. The st [...]


    6. While this isn't as good as Peter David's run will eventually get, you can feel the difference once he takes over as writer. The book has direction, subplots and much better dialogue than it had before.


    7. I've never actually read a Hulk comic book before the ones in this volume. Obviously any comic book fan and most people in general know the character and his premise. But the mainstream image of Hulk is a savage beast shouting "HULK SMASH!" whenever Bruce Banner gets angry. Oh, and he's supposed to be green. Right? Well, if that was all the character was about he likely would not have lasted so long. Peter David adds to the depth and mythos of the Hulk.The volume starts off with the ending of wh [...]


    8. Was pretty okay. Still not sure about Peter David and female characters. We'll see about that.Not blown away by the McFarlane art - though I do recall when I first saw his stuff back in the 80's being pretty wowed by it. Now? It's a I-guess-you-had-to-be-there thing. Even though I was there, in the 80's, it doesn't resonate with me at all today. Shrugs. Perhaps it is because I was too poor to buy comics when McFarlane first hit. So, though I read some bits on the newstands it was a very superfic [...]


    9. Reprints Incredible Hulk (2) #331-339 (May 1987-January 1988). Rick Jones battles being the Hulk, and Bruce is forced to team-up with the Leader to safe him. When the gray Hulk takes over Bruce again, Bruce finds himself on the run. With S.H.I.E.L.D. trying to capture him, Hulk will battle X-Factor and other enemies while trying to remain free, but it could cost him his relationship with Betty.Peter David starts his prolific run on Incredible Hulk with this volume and it continued over ten years [...]


    10. Peter David starts his epic run, but this arc feels like a big transition as he shuts down the storylines that preceded it and starts to establish his vision for the character. We're introduced to a smart, cynical, amoral Gray Hulk, one with more control than the green version but also with a pronounced dislike for Banner. Ultimately, they have to work together to stave off an evil government conspiracy that could produce more gamma-irradiated monsters. This sets up a roadtrip vibe with Rick Jon [...]


    11. The Hulk is an interesting character that has been imagined and presented in a lot of ways. This collection picks up the gray Hulk who is clever but also a raging jerk. By the last issue here he is becoming a little more likable and less unapologetically self-centered and hateful, which makes him a more interesting character to read. Picking up in the middle of the story with the Hulkbusters makes the first few issues a little difficult because there are just so many characters that it didn't re [...]


    12. I'm going to head through Peter David's Hulk run, starting with this first volume. Hopefully they will put out additional volumes at a reasonable pace (I think they're up to vol. 5 right now). This volume is a bit of a ho-hum collection altogether even though the stories themselves are fairly interesting. Knowing all the good stuff that's coming up, it is nice to see how it all started. McFarlane is on art here, and it's early, poor rendering McFarlane teamed up with a succession of inkers that [...]


    13. It's tempting to rate this a bit lower and say that my confusion at the start of the trade is the fault of the work itself, but I don actually think that it's the book's fault. This is one of Peter David's early works. He didn't get as much pull as he would picking up a book now. He's forced to write from where the previous writer left off. The art was surprisingly awesome. I've always thought of Macfarlane as a kind of Liefield. Someone who came from a particular time and that I'm not a fan of. [...]


    14. I can see the Hulk becoming what he always should be; the other side of Bruce Banner. Peter David is suppose to be the best Hulk writer there was. A true legend with the character. In this set, I'm already starting to see why! When all other Hulk writers just want him to be angry, David is already diving into why Hulk is angry and what that has to do with Banner. The last couple of issues in this set are particularly good! While it takes a few issues for David to brush off the poor writing of th [...]


    15. After years of it being on my "to read" list, I'm finally starting on Peter David's decade-long run on The Incredible Hulk. Gets off to a decent start. It's hampered by having to clean up the previous writer's mess. It's fun to see some early art from Todd McFarlane, before he became the most popular artist in comics.A fun read. I especially recommend it for fans of Marvel comics who know the Hulk was grey for a while, and wonder what that was all about.


    16. After the disastrous Aquaman I read, I was worried that Peter David's Hulk run would be just as disappointing. Luckily that wasn't the case. Despite the 80s art and an awkward character or two this turned out to be really enjoyable. It's nice to read a Hulk story that's more just him punching stuff. This was very well done. I especially enjoyed the issues guest-starring X-Factor. Overall, this was a really fun set. I already ordered my copy of volume 2!


    17. This first volume is a mixed bag, where David's trying to tie up loose ends from the previous storyline and hasn't quite nailed down this new Hulk's personality. Nevertheless, there are some great moments (like the confrontation with the abused wife) and it's a fine start to what's fixing to be a really fun ride.


    18. Oddly enough, the lengthy saga of the Grey Hulk as "Mr. Fixit" doesn't hold up nearly as well as I remembered when first reading these issues back in the day (1985-86). They are entertaining enough, but as a high school student, I found them much better than current middle-aged me. I wonder if a high schooler today in 2014 would find them as exciting as younger me?


    19. I don't usually read too many comics from the 80s due to being scared that they'll read dated, but PAD's Hulk stuff starts off awesomely. I love this version of the psychotic gray Hulk. These are wonderful old school comics that hold up surprisingly well.


    20. Nothing too crazy here, but this is definitely different than most superhero comics of the day. It always seems to push new boundaries, with two Hulks for example. David clearly understands the fun and danger of the Hulk. I have to admit I really enjoy the bully aspects of the Hulk character.


    21. Hulk became interesting when Peter David took over the writing chores. It begins here in vol. 1 of the Incredible Hulk Visionaries - Peter David.




    22. Not strictly speaking my kind of thing (not really a Hulk fan, and the 80s stuff is quite dated) but a brilliant read for my research!


    23. not really my time of comic, but I only read it because it was a short read and I'm coming down to the wire for my reading challenge.
