The Immortal Hulk: Rooting for and Fearing the Monster Within

HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!  In honor of this spookiest of all holidays, I’ve written a guest post for Kalie over at her horror blog, Just Dread-Full, about Al Ewing’s new horror/superhero hybrid series The Immortal Hulk.  As all the best Hulk comics do, this gives us all sort of superheroic destruction while leading us to look deeply into our own hearts and contemplate our own inner demons.  It’s an intriguing comic and I’m proud of the post so I think you should head over to Kalie’s blog right now to read my post about The Immortal Hulk.  Please?  PLEASE.  C’mon!  Just click this link and you’ll make me sooooooooo happy 🙂.  Please and thank you!
