Weapon H #8
Are you a Hulk, or a Wolverine, or overall a Marvel fan and not reading this title? You are missing out! Greg Pak is brutal with his writings and the art is as forceful and intense as the script. Each page works cohesively to be entertaining at how spliced DNA could enhance action sequences. Weapon H has attracted my attention with the great story of emotion, tragedy and articulating it with the action. In this issue, Weapon H is working as a mole for Captain America to keep the Roxxon Corporation in check as the company expands their operations into Weirdworld.
Weapon H takes the fight through a portal which Roxxon built to harness the unlimited energy from Weirdworld. Before the journey begins, Agger had to play a few games, which there seems like everyone is using each other at some extent. There is something to be gained by continuing this mission, but they could lose their lives as well. Weapon H is going to war to keep his family out of Agger’s reach. Clay and Sonia took a moment to address things before they separated once more.
They don’t have the healthiest relationship, but it is heartwarming nonetheless. Writer Greg Pak, artist Guiu Vilanova, and colorist Morry Hollowell cohesively connected the storyline to realism to better define Weapon H as Clay, the family man. This can be refreshing as it is an aspect that differentiates Weapon H from other Hulk and Wolverine related titles.
This issue is lacking action sequences; however, I found the story of Korg awesome. This was a perfect place to remind Marvel fans of this character. As they said, for fans of PLANET HULK and Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnork, this was a time to rejoice for the return of the stone man Korg.
Overall, Weapon H #8 is a decent issue. Greg Pak continues his talent of articulating characters to the Marvel universe, past and present. He cohesively plants realism in his storyline that can be connected with the reader. I have mixed emotions on the artwork. Most panels are good, but personally, I like Ario Anindito in past issues much more than Guiu Vilanova in this issue. Hopefully, this will change in the next issue. The coloring by Morry Hollowell worked well, but I saw better in previous issues. I will say the cover by Phylip Tan and Romulo Fajardo Jr. is dope!
Weapon H #8 lacks in action, but makes up in character development as they enter a new setting. This may not be the best place for new readers to begin. Pick up issues #1 through #7 and you’ll become a fan as you continue with issue #8.
