Our thoughts and prayers go out to Peter David, the writer who helped bring back the Hulk to the awesomeness he is, has suffered a stroke while on vacation in Florida. Please make sure to send your prayers out to him for a quick recovery. Here is the news right from him: Peter David’s site.
Looks like for this years Free Comic Book Day, Marvel is having a preview of the Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H tv show in comic book form. And no, I have no idea why there is a giant red dinosaur standing behind them.
My middle daughter is taking an art class in high school and they are working with clay. She made me a Hulk ornament, a Marvel ornament and a Buckeyes ornament for Christmas. They all look great. Go Hulk and Go Buckeyes!!!
I am the procurement manager at Red Hat, Inc in Raleigh, NC. Every quarter, we do an internal video highlighting what is going in the company around the world and stories on some of the employees. They did a story on my slight obsession with the Incredible Hulk. I am always glad to talk about my collection and share my joy of collecting with anyone to listen. They decided to put it out in the public to show people thinking of joining Red Hat what kind of people work for the company. Take a look!
Comic Heroes Magazine is going to publish a special issue that is all about the Incredible Hulk!!

Playskool is doing a pretty good job at the Marvel figures for the younger set. This is the third vehicle I think which involves the Hulk. It is the Playskool Mud Stormin’ 4X4 and it comes with a Silver Surfer figure along with the Hulk. The vehicle also shoots out two rockets from a rocket launcher. Little pricey to buy all this for just the little figure but what can you do, I do have issues.
Diamond Comics Distributor has released the comic book sales ranking for November and the great news is the the first issue of Indestructible Hulk was the #5 top book! That is great news and a great start for the Waid – Yu team on the book. If you have not read the book, go out and buy it now, it is a great read. Waid does a great job on taking the Hulk in a fresh and interesting direction and Yu does a great job on the pencils.
