    One thought on “The Incredible Hulk: What Savage Beast

    1. Neil

      Overall, I still enjoy reading this book. It is by far one of the better superhero novels on the market and was written during a period where Marvel was venturing back into the 'novel market' in the 1990s. Peter David has done an excellent job writing about the Incredible Hulk in a novel-format [which probably carries over from his being the writer on the Incredible Comic for nearly ten years]. The novel moves at a good pace and manages to keep one's interest. I think there is enough backstory i [...]

    2. Conan Tigard

      The Incredible Hulk: What Savage Beast is and entertaining adaptation of the comic book series into a novel. Peter David is a very accomplished writer and has spent the time to convert several comic books into a book while trying to keep the same pace and feel of the original comic book series. At the beginning of each chapter is an illustration by the comic book artist, George Pérez. I'm not sure why, but the cover art is by Bruce Jensen. Why they didn't let George Pérez do it, I don't know. [...]

    3. Matthew Ledrew

      The Incredible Hulk: What Savage Beast by Peter David is one of those rare works that are simultaneously derivative of their source material, while still respecting it's funnybook roots.Peter David is perhaps best known for his 12 year run on Incredible Hulk, where he transformed the character into a rich, three dimensional being.This story was allegedly supposed to be the culmination of that run, but was axed by Marvel and turned into a novel. It's easy to see the ties, using characters and con [...]

    4. Patrick

      I have been reading Peter David's acclaimed 1980s-'90s run on the Incredible Hulk comic book on and off the last few years, and he gives the Green (or Grey) Goliath more psychological depth than the casual observer would think possible. This novel deals with the pregnancy of Bruce Banner's wife, Betty, which brings on trouble in the form of the Maestro, a mad, aged version of the hulk from a possible future (seen originally in David's "Future Imperfect" two-part comic from 1992) who wants the of [...]

    5. Jerry

      There's more to superheroes' lives than just special powers and fighting enemies. They have many of the same struggles we regular humans have, and even some we don't. Although many movies and novels have shown that, few have done it as effectively as Peter David did in What Savage Beast. Sure, there's plenty of action to go around; however, the core of the story revolves around Dr. Bruce Banner's daily struggles, and how he responds to them. The book isn't perfect; some profanities and mocking o [...]

    6. Jeff

      This is one of my favorite books. Peter David does an excellent job summing up everything that has come before in the Hulk's life and showing the major points such as an attack by the army, the Hulk Busters, the different versions of Hulk, and Doc Samson. Each chapter has a beautiful illustration from George Perez. The story can be thought of as a sequel to the two part Future Imperfect comic book story. The future version of Hulk from that story returns and is looking for the current David Bann [...]

    7. Gregory

      Most novels about comic book characters are not worth your time, but this one is a rare exception. Dynamic, thought-provoking and interesting to the last page, this hulking paperback is essential reading to any fan of the not so jolly green giant. Bravo, Mr. David, bravo. Now for the bad newsif you are not at least moderately well versed in your Hulk lore, this novel may not make too much sense as the backstory was developed in hundreds of issues of The Incredible Hulk. I suggest a little resear [...]

      A novel set in the world of Marvel comic's Incredible Hulk. I enjoyed this book and I liked the path this book took the reader on. This book contains Hulk canon that I did not know and if I had this knowledge, I think the book would have been even more enjoyable. The book can be read without this prior knowledge even though I wondered a little bit about some information. If you are looking for a book that is fun and you want to sympathize for the main character, I recommend this book.

    9. Drew

      I read this book when I was a teenager and it completely changed my mind about the incredible Hulk. Before this book I kind of felt that the character was dumb and not worth my time. I don't exactly remember why I picked this book up (I imagine it was the only novel based on a comic book character) but I thoroughly enjoyed the story. It still sits on my book shelf 15 years later. I definately recommend this book to any comic book fan who wants to enjoy a good novel.

    10. Eric

      By the Eye of Agamotto! What Savage Beast is the most craptastic novel I've ever gazed upon. When the Hulk began debating the merits of Friedrich Nietzsche with his son (yes, his son), then I knew I was reading something truly special. Full review here: superheronovels/2013/06/04

    11. Ronald Wilcox

      I have always loved Peter David's Star Trek books and was also very pleased with this novel starring the Incredible Hulk. Storyline, characterization, and writing were very good - would have been a five star but there were too many references to the comic book history of the Hulk that David appeared to think the reader would know about so he lost one star.

    12. Steve Hrycak

      I read this book quite a while back, but I do remember it was the first book I couldn't put down. I breezed through it in 3 days (fast for me!). It also introduced me to Peter David, who is a top tier writer in my opinion.

    13. Michael

      Not bad. I am not a fan of the Hulk. Peter David is a good writer though. However, the last part of the book really seemed to slow down. Still, a good book with lots of character development for such a simple creature as the Hulk.

    14. Bill Tackett

      loved it. hulk is one of my favorite comic character especially the banner hulk. nice to see a novel that continues the adventure. if your hulk fan read it.

    15. Jeremiah Tilley

      That was fun. Definitely the best of any comic book novel i have read so far. And I've never even been a huge hulk fan. It was a nice in-between book before moving on to some others i have lined up.
