No longer immortal, the Hercules of the Marvel Universe takes on the mantle of “Protector of Brooklyn” ...

“Fear Itself: Herc” contains exactly what I want to see in a graphic novel reprint collection. To begin with, the issues collected within this volume have a distinct start and end point. This gives the impression that you truly bought a graphic NOVEL, not just a bunch of consecutive issues of some comic. (Other collections pick up in the middle of some extended story and/or drop you off with

They try some interesting things with ol Hercules here but ultimately it falls flat. I enjoyed the first quarter, maybe a bit less and then it took a severe nosedive. I tried hard to like the rest, probably out of pity for old dumb Hercules, he's had a tough run, but ultimately flat characters and a boring predictable plot dissuaded me.
Marvel needs to drop the whole Greek/Roman pantheon like Perseus dropped Medusa and stick to the Norse gods & creating new original heroes.

So very bad. Apparently, when Hercules lost his demigod status, he became a bro. The "dialog" was so poor, and the story jumped all over the place. If, like me, you're thinking of reading this because it ties in with the Fear Itself event, don't bother. This volume has very flimsy ties to the event, and doesn't give you anything you need to follow the main Fear Itself story.

It was quite enjoyable. Didn't really tie in with the Fear itself storyline, but still it was fun.

Fun. Hercules no longer has powers, just some magic weapons. He does his best to start a new life and protect those around him. Difficult with fear everywhere. A great book with Hercules at his best.
