RETRO REVIEW: Wolverine/Hulk (2002) #1
In Wolverine/Hulk (2002) #1 by Sam Kieth and Richard Isanove, Wolverine encounters a girl with very unusual super powers after a vintage plane he’s flying over the mountains crashes. This comic came out in February 2002, almost exactly 20 years, which is why we’re reviewing it today! Happy New Year!
Wolverine/Hulk (2002) #1
Wolverine/Hulk (2002) #1 introduces a character named Po. This young girl’s father was a pilot of vintage planes himself, one who got lost flying “from there to here.” The story starts with Po’s drawings, which become even more important when Po’s powers are revealed.
It seems that Po has the ability to slip back and forth between a form that closely resembles her “simple” drawings, and a form that looks more like a normal human girl.
Not only is this a super cool super power, it also looks amazing! In fact, all the art in this book looks amazing.
Naturally, as a team-up book, it has to have a juicy part for Hulk as well as for Wolverine (the latter of which gets to open the book with a big, flashy plane crash). This issue accomplishes that by establishing that Hulk is Po’s “Uncle Bruce”! She implores Logan to help her calm him down, but, you know. He’s the Hulk. You can imagine how well it goes.
