An epic story of anger unbound! Exiled by a group of Marvel "heroes" to the savage alien planet of Sakaar, the Hulk raged, bled and conquered through the pages of last year's "Planet Hulk" epic, rising from slave to gladiator to king. Now the Hulk returns to Earth to wreak his terrible vengeance on Iron Man, Reed Richards, Dr. Strange and Black Bolt ? and anyone else who gets in the way. Stronger than ever, accompanied by his monstrous Warbound gladiator allies, and possessed by the fiercest and purest rage imaginable, the Hulk may just tear this stupid planet in half.

It's a great book. I absolutely loved the story. It's about more than just a guy gettin' angry turning green and demolishing everything. I believe it's about a tragic hero. This man, Bruce Banner, was tricked into being banished by his own peers, friends, and colleagues. He crash landed on a distant freaky planet, Sakaar, where he immediately became a slave, eventually overthrowing the king, becoming ruler and finally finding peace. Then the shuttle that brought him to Sakaar, exploded and caused the death of millions, including the Hulk's queen and the child she was carrying. What made this story so special is not just seeing that the Hulk was angry, but it was understanding WHY he was angry. I don't want to give the whole story here, but once I understood why he was angry, it made the story that much more meaningful for me. Once the story was finished I came to the conclusion that the Hulk is a hero, not a monster. I like John Romita, Jr's work. I thought that he decently portrayed the story through his art. I honestly believe though, that David Finch or Mike Deodato would have made the story come alive visually in terms of artistically showing the rage of the Hulk to the reader. I really did enjoy Romita's work on the WWH though. It's also pretty cool to see the Hulk just absolutely lay waste to Iron Man, Dr. Strange, Black Bolt, and Mr. Fantastic. Nothing made me smile more than seeing Iron Man take a beating. Of course I say this because of Cap's death as a result of the events of the Civil War. Iron Man has just become a jerk lately and seeing the Hulk give him a beating was very pleasing. I also liked the panels of the Hulk vs. The Sentry. I'm not a Sentry fan, but the fight was pretty cool and the Hulk stood his ground against Mr. Reynolds. All in all, I believe any Hulk fan should pick this up, it's worth the money to add to your collection. Most definitely the angriest the Hulk has ever been!

I don't know what I was expecting from a Hulk event but I wanted more from this. It was a huge slugfest that was one note and makes everyone else besides the Hulk look terrible. The supporting cast, Hulk's Warbound, don't play a large enough roll. John Romita Jr.'s art, which I usually love felt rushed and was lackluster. The coloring on the book was awful. This book was nothing more than 100+ pages of Hulk beating up heroes which seems like every 12 year old Hulk fan's dream. As an old man (32) it left me wanting more.

Never read Hulk comic before, but this was crazy, fun, and I couldn't put it down.

Following the fantastic adventures of the preceding sci-fi yarn Planet Hulk (mandatory reading before this volume,) this concluding chapter of the sage is simply one of the most action-packed comics I've ever read . Short on plot, the whole thing revolves around one battle after another, ramping up the scope and stakes with each fight. Romita Jr.'s art has never been better.

Although I really enjoyed Planet Hulk, this was just a mediocre follow-up to that storyline. It was pretty much the typical "Hulk angry, Hulk smash" plot, this time centered in Manhattan. He's upset with the Illuminati, which has members in most of the big Marvel groups (Fantastic Four, the Avengers, the Inhumans, etc). So Hulk's determined to wipe them out, along with New York City. He does a fairly good job at it, too.There's a revelation made at the end of the book, but even that little twist wasn't enough to make the story very interesting. Although an okay way to spend an afternoon, World War Hulk, like most Marvel "super events," isn't going to stick with me.

So, a quartet of heroes banished the Hulk to a planet where he started out as a slave and worked his way up to ruler. Eventually, he found love and got married only to have the space ship blow up, wiping out his new-found people and his wife. Needless to say, the Hulk's pretty annoyed about all of this and returns to Earth to kick some super-hero posterior and take some names. And that's where World War Hulk begins. And then you spend the next hundred or so pages with the Hulk battling various Marvel superheroes and other foes as he gets madder and madder, which only makes him stronger. It's kind of fun, but not being a huge Hulk fan, a lot of the broader implications of things and developments were lost on me. But having heard some good buzz on this one and seeing it marketed as an "event" in the Marvel Universe, I was curious enough to pick up the trade paperback collection of the mini-series and give it a try

I really liked the story with hulk rampaging around New York and fighting the people who sent him away. I have to say some of the art slipped a bit and i would like to have seen them all fight hulk together. Would've appreciated seeing the fight versus black bolt and having world war hulk vs the xmen not included here seems a bit like a short changer. Overall good cohesive story and I look forward to reading the precursor to this: Planet Hulk
