PULSE interviews Greg Pak about “Battlestar Galactica”

Comicon.com’s PULSE has interviewed Greg Pak about the “Battlestar Galactica” comic book tie-in he’s writing for Dynamite. An excerpt:

THE PULSE: Which character in this new series do you feel the tightest bond with, why?
PAK: Adama’s always my fave — he’s the heart and soul of the show, and there’s something about his terseness, his way of saying less to say more, which feels just right to me. Among the supporting characters, I have to give it up for Gaeta. I love his total dedication and professionalism — and there’s something very funny and endearing about how polite he is all the time. We have some great Gaeta moments coming up in the first arc of the series.

PULSE interviews new “Hulk” artist Aaron Lopresti

The PULSE at Comicon.com has interviewed Aaron Lopresti, who is penciling “Incredible Hulk” #96-99 and the “Planet Hulk” story in the upcoming “Giant Size Hulk” #1. The article also includes six big preview pages of art from “Incredible Hulk” #96. An excerpt from the interview:

THE PULSE: What have you enjoyed the most about working on this particular storyline?
LOPRESTI: As I have probably stated before, I am not a big tech guy. Actually at heart, I am a monster guy. Which is why the Hulk is perfect for me. I also really like jungle or barbarian or fantasy adventure settings and this really fits into that category, There is a nice combination of weird aliens, weird technology, and weird landscapes. So I guess what I am saying is, “I like all of it!”

“Giant Size Hulk” #1 hits stores on June 21 and “Incredible Hulk” #96 hits stores on July 5. Both books are written by Greg Pak and penciled by Lopresti.

UGO.com digs “X-Men: Phoenix – Endsong”

D.K. Latta from UGO.com has given “X-Men: Phoenix – Endsong,” written by Greg Pak with art by Greg Land, a B+, singling out the book’s characterization for praise. Here’s an excerpt:

When it comes to the emotional quagmire that is the Cyclops-Emma-Jean-Wolverine entanglement, Pak understands the characters, treating them as complex, believable figures. Even in scenes where the characters analyze themselves, Pak pulls off a naturalism, while also maintaining a certain lightness and wit that keeps it from being turgid or pretentious. And his take on the roots of the Cyclops-Emma relationship is intriguing.

“X-Men: Phoenix – Endsong” is now available for a 35 percent discount at Amazon.com.

Scotland’s Sunday Herald interviews Pak on the Hulk

Writer Edd McCracken has graciously given Pakbuzz.com permission to post the following excerpt from his recent story “The Men Who Make Superheroes,” which ran last week in the Sunday Herald in Scotland. In the excerpt, he interviews “Planet Hulk” writer Greg Pak about what makes everyone’s favorite green goliath so compelling:
GREG PAK IS… THE HULK
When writer Greg Pak talks about The Hulk he deepens his voice and flexes his muscles, like a reflex. “I’ve been Hulking it up for nearly a year,” he booms, before relaxing. “I’m sorry, when you work on The Hulk for a while you fall back on the mannerisms,” he says gently. “But he is a tonne of fun.”
In the Marvel universe The Hulk cuts one of the most tragic figures. A misunderstood monster with the most savage mood swings in literary history, he’s the eternal outsider. As if to stress that point, Greg has decided to exile The Hulk on a remote planet with a band of gladiator rebels in the current storyline.
“The Hulk TV show was my first introduction to tragedy as a child – I went straight from that to Macbeth,” says Greg. “That whole notion that this man is a monster and no matter what he does he will always be misunderstood, kills me.”
