PULSE interviews Pak and Van Lente about “Incredible Hercules”

Jen Contino has posted an interview at the PULSE with writers Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente about their new “Incredible Hercules” series. An excerpt:

THE PULSE: How is Hercules similar to the Hulk? What makes him appropriate to be the title character here?
FRED VAN LENTE: Hercules has a long history of smashing first and asking questions later, dating well back to mythology, and that sounds just like the Hulk to me. He’s gone into such a mindless rage in myth that he slaughtered his entire family and smashed the entire city of Troy. So you really wouldn’t like either of them when they’re angry… (laughs)
GREG PAK: One of the great things about Hercules and this storyline in particular is that it lets us explore many of themes that make the Hulk so compelling but with a different kind of vibe. Hulk’s the tragic version of the story; Herc lets us play the comic angle a bit more.

Oakland Tribune picks “Planet Hulk” for Top Ten list

Greg Pak’s “Planet Hulk” epic makes Randy Myer’s Best of 2007 graphic novels list for the Oakland Tribune. An excerpt:

… this adventure with the big, mean green one so engrossed me that I turned into a hermit one weekend to read it. Pak blasts the Hulk to a bloodthirsty planet caught up in a brutal caste system. This is epic, grand story-telling, on par with “Gladiator” and “Lord of the Rings.” A book that never lags, never disappoints.

WizardUniverse.com mentions Pak in its Best Writer discussion

The Thursday Morning Quarterback Crew at WizardUniverse.com mentions Greg Pak in the “Best Writer” section of their Best of 2007 column. An excerpt:

I came late to the Pak party in Hulk, but every month of this year, he’s delivered something I never thought possible—he made me care about the Hulk…. I got a completely fresh take on a character I used to avoid, and I got a solid year’s worth of entertaining, nail-biting stories that kept me coming back each month. That’s all you can ask for.

I think that whole little corner of the Marvel U, all the post-World War Hulk spinoffs and storylines, are some of the most exciting comics Marvel’s putting out right now. That’s definitely something worth watching for in 2008.

Comixtreme.com gives “Incredible Hulk” #112 another rave

Comixtreme.com has posted another four star review of “Incredible Hulk” #112, written by Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente with pencils by Khoi Pham. An excerpt:

In the last couple years, Hercules has had a renaissance, as he was extremely well portrayed in Civil War, and then in World War Hulk was once again extremely well written and characterized. Now, he’s taking over this title for a little while, with Amadeus Cho at his side, and although its one of the oddest team-ups, on paper, in reality it ends up working extremely well under Pak/Van Lente’s pens.
