Flashback Friday Review: The Incredible Hulk #404

incredible_hulk_vol_1_404Another dollar bin find a couple of weeks ago, I picked up this comic purely because of the cover. I’ve always been partial to the Juggernaut, so the thought of seeing him with the Hulk smashing some stuff around seemed too good to pass up for the lowly price of $1 (for those curious, the cover price was $1.25 when it was released in April 1993).

Written by Peter David, with pencils by Gary Frank, and inks by Cam Smith and colours by Glynis OliverThe Incredible Hulk #404 was a great read for the price I paid for it. The story picks up with the Hulk seemingly under some form of mind control as he attacks the Avengers (most of whom I don’t recognize) at the Juggernaut’s behest.

The issue takes place at some point in the middle of an arc, which meant that while I had no idea how or why things had evolved to the point they were at, but the nature of the comic – and the fight with – meant that I could enjoy it all the same. There’s also a subplot with Betty Banner, Doc Samson and (I presume) Rick Jones, but it didn’t really make a whole lot of sense to me – probably because I haven’t read any of the previous issues.

Artistically, I was a fan. This sort of style is how I remembered comics being when I fist started getting into them (ironic seeing as how it’s from the same era, eh?), so there was a nice throwback for me personally there, but your mileage may vary.

Overall, this issue hasn’t aged too badly; it probably wasn’t a great story when it was initially released, and while it still isn’t great, it was enjoyable.
