Hulk #1 (2021) Review
Summary: Is trying out something new with this character but there have been quite a few reboots and mini-stories with the Hulk recently. If you must get them all then go right ahead.
Let's get metaphysical
After some sort of large traumatic event Bruce Banner has split his psyche into three elements and turned the Hulk in a “spaceship” by keeping himself permanently angry while he remains in the “driver’s seat”.
While this is a new storyline there seems to be something that has happened before but details are murky. It seems to be going for something more complex than usual as a few of the Hulk stories have done recently and also what they tried with the Eternals movie. Sometimes this works better than others.
In print it can work as you have a longer time to tell the story and you can go back and read previous episodes and work out how things fit together. This seems to be one of those stories that will be useful to read as a collected edition.
I would recommend this one to fans of the Hulk and also the Avengers as there are several of them in this story and also multiple versions of the Hulk Buster armour that seem to be remote piloted.
