Incredible Hercules Battles The Eternals

I was never really a big Hercules fan but he's growing on me.  It helps to have Amadeus Cho with him.  They make a very interesting pairing.  Not sure how long this series is going to last.  It's just weird that they did away with Incredible Hulk and replaced it.  Surprising that in this day and age, Marvel decided not to try to promote a new #1 issue.  Maybe that was the point.  Too many new #1's on the stands.  This way it looks like Incredible Herc is an established series. 

One of Marvel’s most critically-acclaimed series continues in Incredible Hercules #116 as Hercules and Amadeus Cho must deal with the revelation that Earth is headed towards a war it may not survive! Written by Greg Pak (World War Hulk) & Fred Van Lente (Wolverine: First Class), with art by hot new talent Rafa Sandoval and a cover by the legendary John Romita Jr, this issue sets the stage for next month’s Secret Invasion tie-in. Sent to San Francisco on a mission of grave importance, Marvel’s newest heroic duo come face to face with Eternals…well, make that fist to face! But is Hercules really an Eternal? Or might he be something more alien?

IGN.Com declared Incredible Hercules one of Marvel’s best books, gushing, “Everything about Incredible Hercules has been pitch perfect.”

“Once again, Pak and Van Lente have delivered the goods, with yet another excellent script which proves that this team is one of the best writing teams that Marvel currently employs,” exclaimed Adam Chapman of Comixtreme.Com.

With Secret Invasion looming on the horizon, how does this titanic battle between Herc and the Eternals affect the former Avenger’s role in this epic event? Find out in Incredible Hercules #116!
