School Library Journal Review

Gr 5 Up-A guide to the comic-book universe surrounding the big green guy. While the book focuses on a number of characters, including the many villains in the Hulk world, it also covers in less detail the history and origin of his character and various incarnations in the comics. The book is designed for browsing and maximum visual interest. The illustrations all come from the DC comics and include a few spreads of particularly spectacular images of the Hulk enraged. At times the text reads like an afterthought. A constant reminder that this is really little more than a piece of a much larger marketing scheme is the large number of characters with the ubiquitous symbol following their names.-Tim Wadham, Maricopa County Library District, Phoenix, AZ (c) Copyright 2010.
