Hulk #10

   I have never liked the Red Hulk.

   The character just seems one step removed from a silly Silver Age concept. (I'm still waiting for Blue Hulk and Purple Hulk and Orange Hulk to show up.)

   But this series almost makes me interested in the character. The continuing plot has the "real" Hulk twisted into a new, intelligent character - Doc Green - who's trying to "cure" the small army of gamma-irradiated characters who make up the "Hulk Family."

   His confrontation with Thunderbolt Ross - big Red - collapses into a donnybrook, a violent and vicious no-holds-barred battle that gives artists Mark Bagley and Drew Hennesey a change to cut loose.

   But it's writer Gerry Duggan who gets credit for crafting an adventure that's often funny and always compelling.

   Can't wait to see where it goes from here.

Grade: A-
