The Incredible Hercules 141 (April 2010)

No. Effing. Way. They rip off a line from Braveheart? Does Marvel even have an editor reading this book?

Reading this special, the Hercules part, is like watching a moron bumble through some superhero adventures; it’s so stupid, it’s sad. Also sad is the artwork, Rodney Buchemi is a practical–since when did Marvel decide it was all […]
