I've seen the love this book gets on the site. I thought he had a thread.


I do enjoy this. I never like the Hercules character but Pak writes him pretty well.


I do find the idea of some of the God's of Earth going to fight the Skrull Gods very awesome.

I just got the Volume 1 Against the World HC for $4.99 and the Volume 2 Secret Invasion HC at 20% off. I'm looking forward to reading them (I've only read the first two issues of Vol. 1 so far). Everything I've heard about the title has been really positive.

What's the most recent issue out there? #123?

Is the Secret Invasion one only in hardcover right now?

Picked up the first two trades recently.

This series is great, and the Secret Invasion tie-in was easily the best part of Secret Invasion. (That's a better compliment then it sounds like.)

Yeah folks...the hype is true.

Incredible Hercules IS as awesome and fun as they say it is. I'm trying to track down the Love and War TPB to get caught up.

But yeah....

Booo! Hardcovers suck!
Probably a lot of readers feel that way, but I prefer hardcovers over the paperbacks when I'm ordering them for the library's Young Adult collection. They last longer and can circulate much more often.

One of the other libraries in my system had Incredible Hercules: Against the World, but when I stopped by to look at it, their copy had disappeared. Someone had apparently stolen it. (Not unusual for graphic novels, I'm sorry to say.) I added a copy to my library's collection and when I checked it back in after reading it, it immediately went out for an interlibrary loan. So someone is reading this stuff besides me. Despite the fact that it feature characters with whom I'm unfamiliar, it's pretty accessible. (I did have to read Planet Hulk and World War Hulk first, but I had planned to do that anyway.)

I have to admit, I liked the Secret Invasion trade better, although the first chapter seems to require that you read at least one of the other tie-in titles in order to understand it. Once past that point, however, there's enough information given in the IH issues that you can follow the story without reading any of the rest of the tie-ins.

I was pleasantly surprised by this series. Probably part of the reason I liked the SI volume was the use of gods from different mythologies. I'll have to get my hands on a copy of Love and War in the near future.

Even though the arc's ending was a bit lackluster, this is still one of the best books Marvel has right now.

I should probably check out Agents of Atlas too.

I read the Secret Invasion trade. It was alright. I liked some of it but was pretty bored with the rest of it.

I did like the idea though. And Hercules seems like a fun character.

It did wind down slightly but I still liked the last page.

Yes. Yes you should.

The trade before it is a lot better and the one after it is really good too.
