In 1998, creative differences between Marvel Comics and long-time Incredible Hulk writer Peter David led to the latter's all-too premature departure from the book's creative helm. Now, after seven years, Peter David finally returns to the character he redefined for a new generation of Hulk fans to tell a tale of action/adventure, intrigue, and revelations.

Trapped on a Mysterious Island populated by strange monsters (and even stranger people), the Hulk and his human half, Bruce Banner, must put aside their differences and join forces to piece together what is going on--and find a way to escape from it. Meanwhile, flashbacks to Banner's high school years unveil a dark secret.... as well as the beginnings of his "relationship" with his emerald alter-ego.

Peter David's storytelling is in fine form once again. He proves that, even after twelve years of exploration, the Hulk is far from being "tapped out"; there is still plenty of life left in this iconic character. Lee Weeks' art is, to coin a phrase, incredible. From the ethereal quality of the flashbacks to the exhilarating monster scenes to the awesome rendition of the Hulk himself, Weeks' jaw-dropping depictions have earned him a place among the ranks of Hulk legends like Sal Buscema, Todd McFarlane, and Dale Keown.

Also including the stand-alone story "Dear Tricia...", featuring art by Jae Lee (Hulk/Thing: Hard Knocks), Tempest Fugit has something in it to please just about every Hulk fan, old and new. Welcome back, Peter David!

While I love the illustrations from Lee Weeks & Jae Lee, the story itself gets a bit confusing especially if you've been out of the loop w/ the Hulk comics. I was a big fan of Peter David's now classic run on The Incredible Hulk but "Tempest Fugit" crosses between flashbacks & cliche cameos by Wolverine, Kang, Fing Fang Foom, Leonard Samson, etc. but even more predictable is that their in actuality just conjurer's to confuse the Hulk some more. This almost reads like an episode of Lost & ironically enough, Peter David does poke fun at that show w/ a remark that Banner makes when addressing Kang who's actually the villain Nightmare. The last part of the book is very short & just comes across as standard filler material despite Jae Lee's awesome artwork. Nothing terribly great going on in these pages.

I know Peter David's Hulk is considered by many to be the best but this book undoes a lot of Bruce Jones' work and I was personally a big fan of that so that turned me off this book. It's not bad but I hate retcons to any degree.
