    1. Continuity in comic books is like a house. As a character’s story grows you add little things to the house – eaves, rooms, a garage. At DC, they tear the house down and rebuild; at Marvel, they put together an odd gothic spire here, a ranch house room there, an attic that is bigger than the main house – a misshapen lump. Which is the better way to go? In Hulk: Gray, Loeb and Sale tweak a bit of the Hulk’s early history to come up with an engaging storyline. Hulk was originally conceived [...]


    2. This tells the story of what happened during the time Bruce Banner disappeared in the Gamma accident, and then reappeared after everyone thought the Hulk killed him. I believe the whole story covers only one or two days. Honestly, I've never been really interested in reading much about Hulk. He is a classic character that I love to see show up in other comics, but on his own, I never gave him much thought. I think everyone probably knows this origin story, but I love the way they breathed new li [...]


    3. Banner tells his origin story of the Hulk smashing shit up and being too heavy handed with the bunny petting. It's pretty much one long sob story as Banner whines about Betty i think if you're a huge Hulk fan or know more about the guy then this will work better for you, and it will pack an emotional punch. I've not read much Hulk stuff so it lacked any emotional depth for me but it's a pretty decent read i loved the art too, and gray Hulk looks like a grumpy old man so he just looked adorable r [...]


    4. I never knew that the Hulk’s back story was so heartbreaking.This entire comic story is Bruce talking to his friend and doctor, Leonard Samson, and it timelines the Hulk’s first days. While I don’t know if this is a slightly altered story line or anything like that, I will say that it was a wonderful read. I found it completely fascinating, and I flew through the pages. And boy did this story just hit my feels hard. While I didn’t full on cry, there were times that I teared up for the Hu [...]


    5. This is another reread for me. I haven't read this since it initially came out and I recall being a little disappointed with this one.After reading it again, I think it is equal to the others, at least in story. My interpretation of the "gray" is the ambiguity of whether the Hulk is good or bad and whether Bruce is good and Hulk is bad or vice versa. Loeb lays some groundwork for the argument that maybe Hulk really is good and an outside force "made" him bad (leaving out spoilers here.)If I reca [...]


    6. Book Info: This collection contains Hulk: Gray issues #1-6.Top 5 Reviewers' Consensus: Albiet somewhat contrived, Hulk: Gray is refreshingly sober and poignant for a Hulk comic book. Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale not only acknowledge the character's classic history, but revitalize Hulk's well-known origin story through layered storytelling and distinctively suggestive artwork.-Based on Jeff 's review, Leah's review, Joel Griswell's review, Keith's review, and Eric Mikols's reviewABSOLUTE RATING: {3.5/5 [...]


    7. 3.5 stars. This third book in the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale Marvel "Colour" series has most of the standard problems of the previous two instalments: a confusing flashback structure, some overt sentimentalism, and some laboured attempts at added depth to very pulpy setups. Here, I think those issues are covered over by the startlingly great art (and I'm a story-first guy!) The Loeb/Sale partnership gets a lot of hype as one of the best in comics, but while I've been less than impressed with the storyli [...]



    8. From Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's masterful writing and artwork we have the retelling of The Hulk's origin story. Bruce saves Rick who wanders into an army test site seconds before detonation. Hulk tries to reconcile his relationship with a confused and frightened Betty Ross. Tony Stark in a vintage Iron Man suit attempts to fight and capture Hulk. Hulk accidentally hurts Betty, cares for her, but she fears him too greatly. Bruce returns to the army base, confronts General Ross, and realizes Betty h [...]


    9. Another Loeb/Sale "colour" book exploring events in the early days of a hero's "career", Hulk: Gray follows some of the same beats as Spider-Man: Blue and Daredevil Legends, Vol. 1: Yellow: a few winks, a touch of sadness, and a longing for those "simpler days".Daredevil Legends, Vol. 1: Yellow was, in my opinion, the best of the bunch.


    10. Re-read3.5 stars. This was also even better than the first time I read it but I'll get into that, later. So, I'll preface this by admitting that I have a soft spot for Bruce/Betty and the 2008 Incredible Hulk film. I'm probably one of the only people that actually liked that film but I think they did a fantastic job portraying Bruce and Betty's relationship and, after Tony & Pepper, they are probably my favorite MCU pairing. They have a connection that's so fascinating to me. I'm kind of in [...]


    11. Ironically, I discovered this series because it was mentioned in a video I was listening to in order to fall asleep, but the writing was so incredible that I read the entire volume non-stop while writing down notes even though I'm exhausted and have serious trouble paying attention to almost anything.While this comic drastically changes original canon, and there are pieces of it that have been changed by further backstory since it was written, I really enjoyed this different and more emotional v [...]


    12. So Bruce Banner walks into his psychiatrist's officeSo begins this updated re-telling of the Hulk's first few days.Few people know this (OK, most of the Marvel Fandom does know this) but Hulk was actually Gray when he started out. OK, he was gray for the first issue. He only got to be green in the 2nd issue. The initial reason was mostly because of printing problems, it would seem that the printers had troubles reproducing the gray accurately, so they switched over to green. Later on, they integ [...]


    13. This collected mini-series didn't start to impress me until the 2nd or 3rd installment. The first couple sections seemed a bit thin to me, but once the "overdubbed" counseling session developed and started tying in thematically with the recounted action story, I got engrossed in the psychology the story. Banner is dealing with the essential nature of the Hulk and the Hulk's relationship to General Ross. Who is the monster? Who is responsible for the destruction? Why has the Hulk refrained from k [...]



    14. A Hulk story told about the early days. Before Hulk was green. The art was reminiscent of early Kirby work, and the story is dark and sad. My problem with the comic book Hulk is Banner seems to revel in being the Hulk. Why else would he keep it a secret? I suppose if General Ross was your boss, you might not have a lot of options, but a brilliant scientist should have been able to find a colleague who could help him and not rely on a teenager. Anyhow, it is what it is. A story about Hulk, Rick, [...]


    15. Hmm, seems a mixed bag. Loeb/Sale continue their run on looking at classic heroes' origin stories. They succeed in making this story feel very nostalgic, vintage and old-timey. However, in this case, it doesn't seem to really work for me (maybe it's cause I'm only used to the character's more modern edge, like in the films), and I found this old-fashioned world to not really fit with the Hulk. The script is at times brilliant, at times aggravating. The story it set in Doc Samson's office, with B [...]


    16. Having read this 3rd in the color series(Spidey Blue first followed by DD:Yellow) this was easily my least favorite. I really like the Hulk, but I just wasn't as into this one as I was the other two. Maybe I was used to the formula by now as all 3 stories take place in the current day with the hero reflecting on the past. Loeb's writing was strong as usual and Tim's artwork was very good but sometimes it was kind of odd. I guess the Hulk is an odd character but, I don't know. Either way, my favo [...]


    17. Hulk smashes!Yes, he does what he knows best, and that's smashing. And smashing he does a lot in this story. The story is captivating, deep and not overly long. A lot of very very nice scenes (as with the rabbit, or with betty in the cave) that Jeph Loeb is master of, where the Hulk is seen from a very different angle than the average comic shows, but still keeps the basic concept of the dumb brute that wants to be left in peace.The art is outstanding - the Hulk is displayed both as child that d [...]


    18. The problem I have is that I read Loeb and Sale's Batman stories first, the Long Halloween being my first time reading them and a story like that, and I thought it was amazing. So, even though I really liked this story, and Spider-Man: Blue, they do pale in comparison to the Batman stories.However, this is still a really good Hulk story; good as an origin tale and a inner-look at Bruce Banner. It works at retelling Hulk's dated first issues, and working some modern mythos into the original tale. [...]


    19. This comic just evokes so many emotions for me.I just, really, love this book. It literally one of the saddest comics I've read in a long. The art is really interesting in this book, with the little watercolor accents really makes this comic's art stand out. The writing is on point, and very very sad. I love that they made this comic mostly about my favorite hulk characters. Betty Ross and Bruce Banner. This scene below is when Hulk is trying to show kindness and accidentally kills his bunny fri [...]


    20. Okay, so, nsfcats isn't quite right, because the "cat" is a bunny. When the Hulk pulls a George with his little gray friend, I ABSOLUTELY CRIED. "Why friend wet?" = OH NO HULK NO CRAP NO. Poor Hulk!! So sad!! (Plus I was super naive and was like, "No, no, they won't let him smash his new friend. He needs a friend, it'll be fine." :| YUP NOPE I WAS WRONG.)Very sweet storyI was already really leaning towards loving the Hulk from my very limited exposure to Marvel so far, but this comic actually re [...]


    21. Much like Spider-Man: Blue, Loeb and Sale construct a brilliant introspective piece into an already established Marvel character, bringing a more human side to a super-hero. It's sad and happy and thoughtful, brilliantly complemented by Sale's pencils and the contrast of each character from the Hulk's expansive list that were included in this volume.


    22. Great art but only so-so story. I've liked the Loeb/Sale team on their various Batman books, but here they're retelling part of the Hulk's origin story, and I've never really seen the point in that. Also, as others mention, I've never really been a Hulk fan, so maybe that has something to do with it, but the whole package is kind of "Meh"







    23. Another of the color Marvel series by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale. I've now read three of these (Captain America: White and Daredevil: Yellow were the other two I've read) and this was my least favorite of the three. I really liked Tim Sale's artwork on this one and thought he did a good job as usual capturing expressions and moments well. The dialogue on this one I felt came up a bit short compared to the other two that I read. I don't think I can completely blame it on Jeph Loeb however, because it [...]
