    Please, SOMEONE ask Loeb about the massive backlash against this storyline and the Red Hulk in general! Can he admit that MOST comics fans and fans of the Hulk just simply hate it? Not all, of course... but yeah... I feel REAL comfortable saying MOST.

    Weird that the interview harped on the "how is this possible" point. (Meaning, "how is it possible that Rulk is Ross?" I thought it was pretty clear with issue #600, FOTH: Alpha, and the existence of LMDs in general.
    "Well, last night's episode was a very special episode. They revealed that the Incredible Hulk has an evil twin. And he's not green. He's red."

    Agreed...The reveals were two of the least surprising....I am, however, enjoying both books..

    I love these books! What about the mustache? I know Hulk can grow hair when he changes, but losing hair? I mean, even if it "burns" off cause Rulk runs hot...then he should be bald.

    Sales charts based on what comic shops buy and not what they sell.
    Sales charts that show that comic shops are buy extra copies for the 3 or 4 variants almost each issue of Red Hulk has.

    Well since, I'd say issue 9, the book hasn't been all that bad. Add Greg's Incredible to the mix and its entertaining. I've not liked Loeb when he came back to Marvel but he seems to have found his footing. Which is good because he has wrote some very good books and it looks like he just might be getting back to writing good books.

    Oy vey. Here we go again with jeph loeb and this cripitic crap. Enough and enough with this garbage. Loeb better not really kill off or de power Jen this time. Enough with causalities and death stuff. Tell good stories and stop killing people. Oh I forget the house of no ideas no longer knows how to do that. There is no point anyway because death has no meaning.

    If death has no meaning, why are you always so worried about Jennifer Walters dying?

    I never said had no meaning to me but to most fans it has meaning. If they do kill her off people will be making how long till they bring her back. No one believes anyone staying dead now. My point why waist a really good character by doing something stupid and killing her off. Espically if you are going to just bring her back in year and everyone knows it. You can find better things to do with the character that that. Of course I could be totally off and hopefully General Ross and Betty won't be Red Hulks anymore. It woudln't surprise me if they really end up dead at the end or Bruce or Jen or Skaar or Lyra do. Things are so lame nothings off limit to them. I hope they don't real kill jen off but I got a bad feeling they will do that still. I just hope love she getting from Amanada Carter with Tigra team up and Her-Oes and Heralds is a good sign that they won't. Wouldn't be like marvel to just to do that throw people off. I mean hey Ares had a BW special come out after they killed him.

    The JRJr Ross funeral issue is one of the last Hulk comics I've read since World War Hulk. The price increase to $3.99 + jetissoning of story in favor of hype and spectacle made the choice easy for me.

    I'm surprised to hear Rulk was Ross. I really thought it was the return of Glen Talbot. Then again, considering the stories they've been telling, I shouldn't be surprised at all.

    Ummmm.... Last I checked almost everyone I know was guessing Ross. It was the most OBVIOUS choice.

    This "story" has dragged on way too long. My biggest problem is that its pointless. Ross was turned into a Red Hulk. Who cares? What's the point, other than throwing in as many Marvel heroes and villains into the "story" as eye-candy.

    Clearly, Pak's issues have suffered as well. I also hate this idea of Banner as some sort of science hero. How is he financing all this tech?

    Please slingshot this back to tell Banner vs. Hulk stories. I want to read the archetype Hulk stories again.
