The Hulk SMASH! hit of the summer has arrived! Though given Yea Forums's love of Donny Cates I'm sure it will leave them Thor.
Hulk/Thor: Banner of War Alpha #1 Storytime
bump let's see if Cates can make this Dumb Fun
so Cates is bringing back the black winter? or is the "this fate is not for me to speak" surgesting Cates is given Black winter to a different writer?
Look, I don't mind having Uatu present to try and hype up something as BIG, but having them claim that this event is the BIGGEST EVENT IN THE HISTORY OF EVER is taking it too far, because there's no way any writer can ever deliver on that promise.
I'm surprised we don't see more videogame references in comics.
I took it as tongue in cheek, this page is setting the tone of the event. Don't take it so seriously, Uatu is giving this speech while eating popcorn.
>this is the most clever bending of Mjolnir's rules in 50 years
Okay, this one got me
shouldn't the Immortal hulk fight be Red instead of green? since it was Joe who fought him in that costume?
Support your local comic store.
Yeah, this was great. I haven't enjoyed his Thor and Hulk was okay but this was just dumb fun.
>thor hammer speaks
>hulk is now a vr game
am I reading manga?
So did Cates know in advance that Mjolnir in the new movie would have this cracked look, or is it a coincidence?
so Titan is not part of hulk's "system" and his more like a ghost in the machine kinda deal?
>Whatever the truth about these crimes is...even I do not know
How is that even possible? I thought Uatu knew everything that ever happens on Earth, especially when heroes are involved, he's watching all the time.
Old man about to beat the shit out of Banner
he was probably told in advance, I think they were an interview he did where he mentioned getting Feedback on his comic by people from the Marvel studoies.
Yeah, my guess is that Cates' "God of Hammers" plotline was always gonna end with Mjolnir being reforged yet again, but this time they gave it a cracked look unlike all of the other times it was broken and reforged because of the MCU.
>even I do not know
...Cates you stupid bitch, he's the fucking WATCHER how the fuck could he not know? Just say "it's not yet the time to reveal that truth" or some cryptic bullshit like that, stop being so fucking full of yourself.
>How is that even possible?
As silly as it sounds it's been established Uatu can't know more than what the writer knows.
alright, that's at least worth a chuckle
I'm getting Adventure Time/Cuphead/Bone/ToonTown/PBF vibes here
>bender and homer in the background
ok fuck you Cates I actually enjoyed this.
Cates is an Adventure Time fanboy
...But isn't there terrible implications to that fact, considering that the author of this comic is the same man who came up with the El Paso subplot in the first place?
someone meme that Uatu panel!
Alright yeah this is definitely the best time I've had with a Cates Marvel comic, even if there is gore and stuff it doesn't really feel like it's trying to be as "dark" as his other stuff.
Pretty cute, feels retro as well.
So this is the most epic Thor vs Hulk ever? Didn't feel a damn thing reading this and from the next issues solicitations Iron Man is making things worse.
Are there Cates fanboys posting this time around or is there legit enjoyment of this issue? Can't really tell, because there's a lot of suspicious handwaving of glaring Cates tropes in this thread, like someone's trying too hard to make people ignore them.
Why are you so desperate to make topic about Cates?
... This issue was literally written by Cates, you dumbass.
To me it's because it reads almost as a self-parody and as if he's not even trying to write something that "matters"
So go harass him on his twitter or something, isn't that your daytime job?
You need to take your meds.
Oh so there ARE Cates fanboys in here, thank you for confirming it.
And yes, this is the same impression I got, like he's clearly aware he's just writing a filler arc and isn't even trying to make it interesting. Why else would they waste two splash pages (four pages total) in a recap summarizing both runs so far, one of them with barely 6 issues? Just makes no sense.
This is filler that will be followed by filler.
Eh, this wasn’t terrible. Better than the past few Cates issues
>Why else would they waste two splash pages (four pages total) in a recap summarizing both runs so far, one of them with barely 6 issues?
That's actually embarrassing, Thor fought against Galactus, Black Winter, Mangog, there's the Thanos thing and Hulk has been fighting hulkbusters and gamma spider-men, might as well not show anything.
