Planet Hulk Story Line Adopted into Novel Written by Greg Pak

Greg Pak, who was the writer for the awesome Planet Hulk storyline, announced that he was taking the comic story and putting it into novel form and the book will come out in October. Here is a link where you can pre-order via Amazon. The description of the book says:

Betrayed by Earth’s heroes and exiled into outer space, the man-monster Hulk has landed on the distant planet Sakaar, ruled by the tyrannical Red King. Sold into slavery, Hulk becomes the Green Scar, the planet’s mightiest gladiator – but his new masters get more than they bargained for when he forges a bond of brotherhood with his fellow fighters: crafty insectoid Miek, the horrific Brood, wise rock-man Korg, Shadow Warrior Hiroim, noble-born rebel Elloe and her loyal guardsman Skee. Together, these gladiators start a revolution that could change their entire world – or destroy it. It’s a savage sci-fi fantasy by award-winning writer Greg Pak, guest-starring the Silver Surfer!

There can never be enough Planet Hulk merchandise to go around!

Weapons of Mutant Destruction Event at Marvel Featuring the Hulk

I was hoping for a bit more on the Bruce Banner-Hulk but doesn’t seem like that is the case. I will get the Hulk issues and most likely the one-shots.

Marvel has announced “Weapons of Mutant Destruction,” a new comic book crossover that will unite the casts of Weapon X and Totally Awesome Hulk this summer.

The crossover was first teased by Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso last week. According to Comicbook.com, “Weapons of Mutant Destruction” will force Amadeus Cho to team up with the cast of Weapon X (which launches in April and features Old Man Logan, Sabretooth, Lady Deathstrike, Domino and Warpath). This combined force of mutant assassins and Hulk will be attempting to prevent the Weapon X program from unleashing a secret project called “Batch H,” which appears to be a genetically engineered monster with the strength of Hulk and the adamantium claws of Wolverine.

The crossover is a natural fit, given both the long rivalry between Wolverine and Hulk and the fact that writer Greg Pak is already penning both books. The crossover will begin with a prelude chapter in June’s Totally Awesome Hulk #19. From there, the main crossover will kick off in a one-shot special called Weapons of Mutant Destruction #1 (with art by Mahmud Asrar) and unfold in Totally Awesome Hulk #20-22 and Weapon X #5-6 over the course of the summer.

“These are classic characters, they’ve been around for decades and they’re incredibly popular characters among both readers and writers, and so there have been many different incarnations of them and many different versions, and it’s always fun to see different versions of these characters come up against each other.” Pak told Comicbook.com “In this case, we’ve got Old Man Logan who’s the old Logan from the future coming up against Amadeus Cho, who’s the new Hulk, this cocky kid who took the power of the Hulk from Banner with the idea that Amadeus would become the best Hulk there ever was. This power is not a curse to him. It’s just almost like an insanely fun toy. Of course, he’s got a lot to learn about what it really means to be the Hulk but that gives us a different dynamic now.”

Thor Ragnarok Prelude Comic Book will Discuss Hulk’s Movie Origin

There will be a Thor: Ragnarok Prelude comic book released in October and apparently it will touch on the Hulk’s origin in the Marvel movie universe. Listed below is the description of the comic:

The stage is set for 2017′s far-out fantasy epic, Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok! Catch up on the incredible events of Thor: The Dark World and learn where major players including Odin, Loki, and Thor himself stand ahead of the next blockbuster chapter in Asgardian lore! And revisit the origin of Ragnarok’s other headline star, the Incredible Hulk!

Plus: Classic comic-book tales featuring the two mightiest Avengers of all! Thor enters the underworld to face Hela – and the Hulk does savage battle on an alien world! It’s cinematic action in the Mighty Marvel Manner!

Happy Birthday to Sal Buscema

Today is a great day for Hulk fans! It is the extremely talented Sal Buscema’s birthday, he was born January 26, 1936. While my first few Hulk books were by the talented Herb Trimpe, it wasn’t until I saw Sal’s artwork that I fell in love with the Hulk comic book. He was able to perfectly capture all the emotions of the Hulk along with showing just how huge and powerful he was. There have been many talented artists on the book but Sal will always, always be my favorite artist. Happy Birthday Sal!
