PLANET HULK and THOR: RAGAROK

02-the-hulk-split.w710.h473.2x

So a little movie called THOR: RAGNAROK hit movie theaters this week, and I’m thrilled to report that it’s fantastic — and that it’s inspired in part by the PLANET HULK story that I wrote and Carlo Pagulayan, Aaron Lopresti, Gary Frank, Chris Sotomayor, Mark Paniccia, Nate Cosby, Randy Gentile, and many others worked on for Marvel!

Here’s a fun article from Vulture in which Abraham Riesman interviews me and editor Mark Paniccia about the making of the original comics.

Here’s a fun list of PLANET HULK influences on the movie.

Here’s a new review of the original PLANET HULK comics.

And here’s an article about the tweets I wrote praising the new movie, because that’s how it works now, apparently. 😉

And of course, this is a fantastic time to buy the PLANET HULK graphic novel and the PLANET HULK prose novel! I’m biased, of course, but they’re both great! Enjoy!

MECH CADET YU #1 from Pak, Miyazawa, Farrell, and Bowland hits stores in August!

mcy-banner-3

Hey, friends! I’m thrilled to announce that I’m writing MECH CADET YU, a comic book series drawn by Takeshi Miyazawa, colored by Triona Farrell, lettered by Simon Bowland, and published by BOOM!

The series follows Stanford Yu, a janitor’s kid who bonds with a giant robot and joins the elite Sky Corps Academy. Here’s a little something I said about the book last month:

So many of the stories I’ve written over the years are rooted in things I loved the most when I was 10 years old—like giant robots, natch. It’s a thrill to finally be writing that kind of story from the point of view of a character who’s an actual kid. And I’m excited to be writing multi-dimensional Asian American lead characters in a genre that’s so beloved by so many Asian Americans, but seldom features them.

For more about the book, check out the SyFy.com article. The first issue hits comic shops on August 2 — call your local retailer and ask ’em to preorder a copy for you today!
