If you are anything like me, you haven’t read that many Incredible Hulk comics. I’ve only checked out the beginning of Greg Pak’s World War Hulk series and the most recent run written by Jason Aaron. That’s why Padsmash is such a great tool!
In the standard Padsmash episode, J. David Weter provides listeners with synopsis’s of the various Incredible Hulk issues. Though Weter’s focus is mainly on Peter David, the man who wrote comic books featuring Dr. Bruce Banner for over 12 years, in episode 13, Weter describes the Incredible Hulk’s story from the begging. Yes, this means he begins at Incredible Hulk Volume 1 Number 1 produced by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.
Weter’s voice isn’t annoying and you can truly see that he has lots of experience doing podcasts. He is concise and to the point. I enjoyed it. However, the ad at the beginning really confused me. I wasn’t sure if the link was broken because I wasn’t expecting to hear about Superman!
In any case, Padsmash is most likely the best Incredible Hulk podcast available today. If you don’t want to listen to the first twelve episodes, check out Padsmash episode 13.
