In 11-13, we're in Hell. Not even Marvel Universe Hell, which is quite cuddly at this point — a more literal, theological interpretation. -- Al Ewing

When I heard about this title and the Al Ewing was doing it, I knew it would be fun. What I didn't know is how CHILLING it would be. Devil Hulk is a really interesting, unapologetic character. He's like a sum total of Banner's vindictive anger...not rage. He is SCARY.

Yesss! And then in the next issue it comes together so well without making Hulk irredeemable. I like this mythology.

Also giving me Hellraiser feelings.

I am nearly in tears reading this. I'm a Christian, been a Christian pretty much my entire life. I can count on one hand the fictional uses of Christianity in mainstream works that rely on the source material at all.

At best you get Dante's Infernal, usually you just get the imagery. But this, seeing whats actually written in the Bible being used as inspiration for a story? Its pretty awesome.

I hate to go into the line of biblical exegetics and so on, but this is very much a post-biblical interpretation of hell, just as much as the Dante's inferno version. (though from different strands of the biblical narrative)

But then again, I find tend to be of the fairly narrow opinion (that I thinks makes the most sense given the judaic milieu of which the gospels were written) in that "Heaven" and "Hell" are not actually things: What is promised in the actual biblical text is (bodily) resurrection vs. death/oblivion.
