“Pak Smash” interview at Marvel.com

Marvel.com has posted an extensive interview with writer Greg Pak about his “Planet Hulk” and “World War Hulk” storylines. An excerpt:

MARVEL.COM: You seem to be up on your history of events in the Hulk’s past and it has been mentioned that Amadeus Cho plays a major part in WORLD WAR HULK. There seem to be similarities between Amadeus Cho and someone else in the Hulk’s past by the name of Agamemnon. Is there more to it or just two characters with similarities?
GP: Amadeus also shares certain similarities with Rick Jones–both were born in Arizona, both are orphans and both met the Hulk at the age of sixteen. These kinds of similarities aren’t entirely coincidental–these different sidekick characters at different points in the Hulk’s life help bring out different aspects of the Hulk’s character and journey. For an exploration of the similarities–and critical differences–between the sidekick characters of Rick Jones and Miek the Unhived, don’t miss INCREDIBLE HULK #108, which features amazing pencils by Leonard Kirk.

Savage Critic(s) dig “Incredible Hulk” #107

Graeme McMillan at The Savage Critic(s) speaks highly of “Incredible Hulk” #107, written by Greg Pak with pencils by Gary Frank:

Pak’s definitely taking the rough concept of the event and moving it into some more interesting areas in this particular book, leaving us with something Very Good, happily enough, and also something that almost makes me want to go back and check out Planet Hulk after all.
But I definitely want an Amadeus Cho series, if he comes out of this alive.

SilverBulletComicBooks.com loves “Incredible Hulk” #107

An excerpt:

Amadeus Cho is the seventh smartest person on the planet and apparently a true friend to the Hulk. His dialogue is great, his wit on time, and his major weakness is over confidence. [Writer Greg] Pak puts Cho in situations where intelligence is not going to necessarily save his life, but quite the opposite.

IGN loves “Incredible Hulk” #107 and Amadeus Cho

“Incredible Hulk” #107, written by Greg Pak with pencils by Gary Frank, has nabbed two “Must Read” ratings from the review crew at IGN. The book continues the tale of boy genius Amadeus Cho’s quest to assemble a team of heroes crazy enough to take the Hulk’s side during World War Hulk. Here’s an excerpt from the reviews:

I love Amadeus Cho. He’s one of the best new characters in the industry. I know many of you might scoff at that claim, but read this issue and tell me Cho doesn’t make this issue gold. His chemistry with the team is fantastic. Pak portrays him with the proper level of youthful exuberance. You can see how it would be easy to mistake this teen for any other until he executes his devious plans. Best of all, Cho doesn’t care to take credit for his intellect – he’s casual about it, simply utilizing it like we might a credit card. This book has proven its worth to me for this event.

Great reviews keep rolling in for “World War Hulk” #1

Just a sampling of the raves for “World War Hulk” #1, written by Greg Pak with pencils by John Romita, Jr.:
“Greg Pak continues his excellent run on the Hulk… For fans of devastating punches, shattering rocks, falling skyscrapers and general mayhem, this title is for you!”
— Brent Sprecher, SilverBulletComics.com
“… World War Hulk is a blast…. a refreshing action-packed romp…”
— Winston Duong, SilverBulletComics.com
“Overall, this is a shining example of a raw action, fun comic. The Hulk describes it well himself: “Puny humans. I’ve come to smash.” If that’s what you’re looking for, pick this up. I give it 5 out of 6.”
Bureau42.com
“Pak does a phenomenal job of interlacing exposition, for those who haven’t read The Incredible Hulk, with plot advancement and action, for those of us who have. We start right off with a wonderful sequence on the moon between our title character and Black Bolt. The utterance of a single word and its aftermath was so beautifully conveyed that I had to pause to soak it all in. Loved it!”
FilmFodder.com
“I wouldn’t have thought that SMASH! would be too small a word to describe a Hulk comic book. But in the case of World War Hulk, SMASH! doesn’t do the book justice. I guess the feel of this book can best be summed up by the WWH logo – it’s earth-shatteringly good.”

IGN dubs “World War Hulk” #1 a “Must Read” — four times!

All four reviewers at IGN.com have dubbed “World War Hulk” #1, written by Greg Pak with pencils by John Romita, Jr., a “Must Read.” Here’s an excerpt:

… Marvel, its writers and series supporters all touted Civil War as this complex moral conflict, and while that series turned into a mindless series of gimmicky superhero vs. superhero battles. Meanwhile World War Hulk – a series who’s concept shouts mindless gimmick – might turn out to be a genuinely complex moral conflict. Funny how things work out…
