Editorial Reviews


"...one of the better [Marvel/DC] crossovers. The writing had a lot to do with that. Roger Stern had strong ties to Marvel in the earlier part of his career before crossing over himself to DC and spending the better part of a decade charting the course for Superman.  Stern knows both universes and both characters ... he knows his history and it shows in his writing.  This story takes place after issue six of the original Incredible Hulk series and during John Byrne's Man of Steel mini-series.  It's an odd mix of histories, but Stern makes it work." -- Michael Bailey

"[Steve] Rude returns to the character again in a seamless blending of the Marvel and DC worlds with writer Roger Stern.  Stern and Rude present a story handling the characters that feels as if they've been alongside each other from day one.  Effortlessly fusing Kirby and Shuster's art styles and bringing respect to both.  Fans of either character should read this and let the debate over who's stronger rage on." -- Grimm, mightygeek.com

"When it comes to getting classic characters right, Stern is one of the best -- if not the best -- writers in the comics industry. Rude has seamlessly blended his wonderfully realistic faces, facial expressions, and figures with the recklessness of the 1940s Joe Shuster Superman and the sheer power of the 1960s Jack Kirby Hulk. Equally impressive is the way Milgrom's inks support the ambitions of the penciler.  This crossover gets my highest recommendation." -- Tony Isabella

Format: Paperback
In 1999, DC and Marvel joined hands and produced THE INCREDIBLE HULK VS. SUPERMAN: DOUBLE LIVES. At a brisk 48 pages, this one-shot comic book is a quick read. Writer Roger Stern (The Death and Life of Superman) pens the story, Steve "the Dude" Rude (Nexus Archives Volume 1 (Nexus Archives), The Moth) and Al Milgrom pencils and inks, respectively. Supes and the Hulk have clashed on two separate occasions before, in 1981's Superman and Spider-Man and in 1996's mini-series DC VS. MARVEL. But, unlike those two titles, THE INCREDIBLE HULK VS. SUPERMAN places Supes and the Hulk smack dab on center stage. It also chronicles the official "first" meeting between the two.

There's an old school charm to this story, as if it'd been churned out during the Silver Age of comics, maybe by Gardner Fox or Stan Lee. Part of this nostalgic feel is because most of the tale takes place early in the careers of the two main characters. This episode is told in flashback as, in the present, a televised retrospective on the Hulk causes Superman and Lois Lane to reminisce about the first time they met the grumpy green giant. In the past, the actual story starts with Superman investigating a series of seismic tremors in the New Mexico desert and consequently running into the Hulk. Supes tries to reason with the sullen jade dude, who'd just crashed a barbecue cookout.

Format: Paperback
This item is listed as not yet published but was in fact published in July of 1999. The story is quite good for a Marvel/DC crossover with very cool art that looks sort of dated but adds a unique appeal to the whole package. I would recommend it if you can find it. This one was done with plot in mind rather that getting Superman and Hulk together just for a big fightfest. Of course they exchange some fists, but you'll be into the story as well. I was pleasantly surprised.
