Happy 82nd Birthday to Sal Buscema

Happy 82nd birthday to Sal Buscema, whom I consider to be the definitive Hulk artist of all time. There have been a number of really good Hulk artists but for me, Sal’s Hulk, especially during his early run on the book, will always be the Hulk I see in my mind. He knew just how to draw him to look massive. Even though he drew him that large, he was still able to capture emotion and feelings in the Hulk. Thanks for helping shape my childhood Sal!

Incredible Hulk Issue 238 Page 6 Original Comic Book Artwork

Can’t get enough Sal Buscema original Hulk artwork. Was lucky enough to pick up another page from his earlier run on the book, namely issue 238, page 6. Great pencils by Sal with inks by Jack Abel. I will never be able to afford the classic cover from this issue but at least I can get the scene from inside the book. Happy to have this in my collection.

Avengers Never Surrender Hulk Related Covers by Mark Brooks

Marvel has already announced that the one and only true Hulk will be coming back in the second half of the Avengers Never Surrender storyline and today they released some covers by Mark Brooks featuring the Hulk. Can’t wait to see Bruce come back.

World War Hulk 2 Storyline Coming to the Incredible Hulk Comic Book

Planet Hulk 2 is currently going through the Incredible Hulk comic so naturally what next follows is World War Hulk 2. See the information below:

Marvel just announced that Greg Pak and Carlo Barberi are kicking off World War Hulk II, the sequel to the immensely popular World War Hulk storyline from 2007. The sequel will star Amadeus Cho in the leading role, bringing him back to Earth from his time on Sakaar. Suffice it to say the world is nowhere near ready for his return.

Since his encounter with Bruce Banner in Generations, Amadeus has struggled with what being the Hulk means for him and the people closes to him, as well as the people he claims to protect. Since being on Sakaar he’s let some of those restraints go, and he is coming back to Earth a very different person than when he left.

“What follows Planet Hulk II?” asks Executive Editor and SVP Tom Brevoort. “World War Hulk II, of course! To survive on the savage world of Sakaar, Amadeus Cho was forced to unleash his darkest impulses! Returning to Earth, now the Hulk is at the wheel—and it’s a more unpredictable, more unconquerable Hulk than any we’ve seen before! The heroes of the Marvel Universe must intercede as the Formerly Awesome Hulk begins to carve his own path across the world.”

The original World War Hulk took place after the even more popular Planet Hulk storyline, which saw Marvel’s Illuminati send Hulk off into space. He was destined for a paradise planet, but instead got misdirected to the planet Sakaar, where he battled for superiority in the arena against other Gladiators. He would eventually lead a resistance to reclaim the land, but would also find love. Unfortunately meddling from an unlikely source resulted in her death, resulting in an enraged Hulk returning to Earth to bring justice to those who sent him in the first place.

While the true culprit is revealed in the end, Hulk devastated the heroes of the Marvel Universe before all was said and done, and it looks like Amadeus Cho will follow in Banner’s footsteps.

Tom Brevoort Talks the Original Hulk’s Return in the Comics

Tom Brevoort was being interviewed for the upcoming No Surrender’s storyline and the hinted at return of the Hulk. This is what he had to say:

-Another “No Surrender” character we should talk about is the emerald-hued founder who was in the recent dental-themed teaser, which was designed to raise a lot of questions. When will those questions about the Hulk be answered?

-That teaser is definitely an important part of the “No Surrender” story. It’s a more important part of the second half than the first half. So that character will get prominent focus, but there is a reason that teaser says March rather than January. That’s because it’s really more a part of the back eight issues than the front eight issues.

So yes, those big teeth are going to appear in Avengers! So bring your floss. It’s going to be that kind of adventure.
