I mainly bought the book because of the Hulk - The End Story, and was surprised by the inclusion of another great story.

Marvel finally had the good sense to re-print two modern classic Hulk stories with Hulk: Future Imperfect and Hulk: The End; both of which are written by legendary Hulk scribe Peter David and collected here in this handsome hardcover. Future Imperfect is a two-issue smash that finds the Hulk transported to the future to duke it out with an older, stronger, and tyrannical future version of himself, which goes by the name of the Maestro. Loaded with action and a surprisingly intelligent storyline and plot, Future Imperfect is made even better by the stellar, highly detailed artwork of the great George Perez, who wonderfully illustrates one of the best smackdowns the Hulk has ever been involved with. The second story is the Hulk: The End one-shot (and the first of Marvel's line of "The End" stories, unless you count the older and aptly titled "Last Avengers Story" as being a part of this line, which was written by, guess who, Peter David) which finds an old, decrepit Bruce Banner as being the last living human on Earth, and still wrestling with the monster inside. Surrounded by nothing but desolation and giant cockroaches (yes, you read that right), Banner attempts to finally rid himself of his lonely existence, but naturally, Hulk will have nothing of that. While nowhere near as enjoyable as Future Imperfect, Hulk: The End is a startlingly poignant and even somewhat frightening tale of a would-be demise of the jade giant, which is made all the more memorable by the artwork of Pitt artist Dale Keown, who made a name for himself illustrating the Hulk during David's prolific run on the title. All in all, it's great to see both these stories finally get re-printed, and needless to say, if you've ever considered yourself a Hulk fan, this collection deserves a place on your shelf.

While I've never been a huge Hulk fan, I have to say "Future Imperfect" remains one of my all-time favorite comic book stories. The idea of The Maestro is even more possible if you've read the recent World War Hulk storyline. No matter which incarnation of the Hulk is currently in charge (smart, dumb, green, gray, red, etc), it's obvious Marvel holds him in high regard as the most under-rated but possibly terrifying character they own.

"Future Imperfect" gives us a glimpse of the future as "the smart Hulk" (when he had Banner's mind in Hulk's body) is pulled into the future to face a villain known as The Maestro who is ruling the world with an iron fist. The world is without heroes now, and no one is left to oppose this tyrant...until the Hulk shows up. Of course, he's been there all along too. Confused? Get the story. There can be no doubt this is the best fight the Hulk has ever had. Matched evenly in intellect and out-gunned in strength, Banner must find a way to destroy this villain or die! Excellent artwork and storytelling.

"The Hulk: The End" is a different kind of story. While FI is filled with action and dialogue, The End is more subdued. The Hulk is literally the last man on Earth and has to find a way to make peace with both aspects of his personality, Banner and the Hulk, before they kill each other. A little gross in parts (mostly dealing with the mutant roaches), but still good.

To find these two stories collected together in hardcover format is a real treat. Marvel is really coming around with their "Premiere Classic" line, and this is a great addition to it. You won't be disappointed with this collection!

I mostly bought this collection because it included Future Imperfect which I have been dying to read and own for around a decade and I have read some of Marvel's other "The End" books and found them mildly interesting and, since this is a hardcover I would definetely say it's worth the price. Future Imperfect has excellently detailed artwork provided by THE greatest comic artist ever: George Perez and The End has art by Dale Keown who, as another reviewer mentioned, teamed with Peter David on a long run of Hulk comics in the past.

Peter David is the author of some of the best Hulk stories. In this collection are two of his best. Finally reprinted in hardcover and together, these two stories show why Hulk is a great character and loved by so many fans. Please check out all the Peter David Hulk reprints and see the best in the green (and grey) skinned goliath!

Great story about an agonized monster at the end of world. I read this and started thinking...who comes up with this stuff, but whoever you are keep it up, because you have my attention.

Are these two stories the best Hulk stores ever? Possibly not, but nevertheless, they are awesome.

Future Imperfect is a great story. I mean the present Hulk who meets his future self is pretty neat. The present Hulk as to battle hard with his ethics and moral issues when tempted by the future Hulk. Of course, they start scrapping the hell of each other. Two green Hulks fighting, who does not like that! The art is outdated a bit, but it did not bother me at all.

The END storyline was very interesting. Seing how Banner tries and tries to just end it and die, but is always stopped by the Hulk was cool. I though it was an original idea which was developped well. There is not much action in this story, but it is the idea of the story which makes it so good. Different way of seing the Hulk dealing with his psychological issues. The art here is excellent.

Overall, i really enjoyed those 2 stories. This is one of my favorite book in my whole collection, i have many. This one is a keeper for sure.

I hightly recommend it.
