If you're not going to buy it for the great Greg Pak writing -- basically bringing the same epic narrative to this work as he did for World War Hulk -- then for God's sake do it for Ron Garney's art.
Garney's art in this book is like a cross between Joe Kubert and Gil Kane. Together with great, understated color by Paul Mounts, Skaar Son Of Hulk is absolutely freakin' gorgeous. If you want a hint about what that classic, epic comic book art from the 60s and 70s looked like -- the type of stuff that, for the most part, you can only find covered in magazines -- pick this book up. You will not be disappointed.
It's just $2.99. Try something new.
