Lords Of Empyre: Emperor Hulkling (2020) #1 (Lords Of Empyre by Chip Zdarsky
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I’ve been a fan of Billy and Teddy since I first read Young Avengers, and it’s been great to see Marvel allowing the characters to grow and their relationship to grow along with them. I had worried that Empyre would see Billy forgotten as Teddy shot of into space to be a big time space emperor, but those fears were allayed by this wonderful issue.
The art is superb, as it has been across Empyre so far, and the writing is just as good.
For what could have been a throwaway, inconsequential, one-shot tie in, this feels like essential reading. Well done to everyone involved!
