The art for this book is moody and almost looks like a French film put on paper. Each panel almost has a life of its own and there is almost no page that couldn't be framed and hung as art. With that said, I know it won't appeal to everyone's taste and just might seem odd for fans of a traditional style of comic book art. The story picks up a bit in this issue as we learn more about AIM's plot to use the Hulk to create a formula to give Hulk powers to their agents.
The fact that this is outside of continuity means things can proceed with little to no interference from the rest of the Marvel superheroes, which is not really what the Marvel Universe has been all about. Another thing that bugged me about this issue is the fact that it ignore years of established continuity and just says anyone can become a Hulk despite years of evidence to the contrary. The cover doesn't grab you, so you may not even notice this book among the numerous comics at your local comic shop.
Keatinge tells a great story, but he does so outside of the Marvel Universe and readily disregards any continuity that doesn't fit into his vision. While I do understand the concept of Marvel Knights, it is a shame when things are taken so far left that it might as well be a different character altogether. Unless you are a big Hulk fan or a Keatinge fan, there isn't much reason to pick this book up. Even the art, while great, can't do much to salvage this concept gone bad.
