One of the series that I'm most eager to read each month when it comes out is Mariko Tamaki's Hulk. The first arc, Deconstructed, was a slow burner, but it was bloody brilliant. The art by Nico Leon allowed some good body and face acting, and it was a book that looked at how people respond to setbacks. I loved it, for reasons that I'm finding hard to articulate just now.

The arc that's just finished, Let Them Eat Cake has struggled a bit. Part of that is because of the artists. Not that they're bad (though they certainly aren't Leon's equal), but there's so many of them
7 - Georges Duarte
8 - Georges Duarte
9 - Julian Lopez (Quite a deep shadowed, Deodato Jr style)
10 - Francesco Gaston/ Julian Lopez (and they are very, very different styles. It's a jarring change that happens halfway through the book)
And coming up
11 - Sebastian Carillo
159 (I know) - Jahnoy Lindsay (As seen in Uncanny Avengers)

IT's tough to establish an identity for a book when half of the creative team is in so much flux. It's a shame, as the title launched with such a strong look under Nico Leon.

The end of #10 does at least promise something interesting for future issues, rather than just the mystery of who will be the artist.
