    Thank God they are trying to get as far from the first movie as possible. The first movie should have been called King Kong instead of the Hulk.

    I agree. Good performances from Sam Elliot and Nick Nolte.

    I think I'm one of the few old fanboys who didn't absolutely hate the first HULK film. While it had its weak points, I found it pretty entertaining.

    I think the director was confused when making the first Hulk movie, and thought he was doing an updated version of King Kong. The script just screamed that it was sculpted to make sure they wouldn’t have to do too much special effects. The Hulk didn’t even show up until an hour into the movie. One of the first superhero movies of recent years that I never wanted to see again.

    Wow! Was this rushed into publication to capitalize on recent news? Did John Ostrander have some inside information about story lines at Archie Comics? Or is this just an incredible coincidence and example of synchronicity?http://www.comicmix.com/news/2010/04/22/archie-co…I was surprised by Andy coming out both as being gay and being a cross dresser. I guess Chris Burnham wanted some graphic and dramatic way to show "Andy is GAY," but cross dressing and being gay are separate deals. Most gay folks aren't cross dressers and most cross dressers aren't gay.I was also surprised by the violent spin this took, but it did allow a "Buffy-archetype" character to enter the scene and show how homosexuality has changed in pop culture's portrayal of teen archetypes.Finally, I was confused by the final panel. I recognized wide variety of characters there from a lot of different sources (this is similar to Munden's #8), but I'm not sure how they fit in with the theme fo this story. Are these other comics characters who have come out or that there is speculation might be gay?BTW, another very fun story. Another great Munden's. Thanks for keeping ComicMix the place for cool, original comics!

    The story was actually done a while back. It preceded even the lesbian who wanted to go to her prom with her partner. Time caught up with us a bit (as it will often do). Chris was following the directions in(the script; >I
