London’s Gosh! Comics Blog loves “Skaar” #1

London’s Gosh! Comics Blog has posted a rave review of “Skaar: Son of Hulk” #1, written by Greg Pak with art by Ron Garney. Here’s an excerpt:

Skaar: Son of Hulk is the latest entry in Greg Pak’s new Incrediverse, richly rendered in pure pencil-o-vision by Spider-Man and Wolverine artist Ron Garney, looking for all the world like the lovechild of John Romita Jr. and Joe Kubert, if such a product were biologically feasible or advisable. It’s a rip-roaring space fantasy featuring the not-so-jolly green giant’s imperial offspring. Conceived in armageddon, gestated in the cold Earth and born into a post-apocalyptic world of chaos and torture. If I didn’t know better, I’d call that rough justice.

CBR interviews Pak, reveals Julie Bell cover for “Skaar: Son of Hulk” #1

Dave Richards at ComicBookResources.com has interviewed comic book writer Greg Pak about his new series, “Skaar: Son of Hulk,” the first issue of which hits comic book stores tomorrow, June 11.

And to whet your appetite, here’s an excerpt from the interview:

“Skaar” #1 begins with the destruction of Sakaar’s Crown City, just before the Hulk leaves for Earth. “Skaar’s immediate goal is survival, which is no mean trick when you’re ripped from your mother’s womb and thrown into the boiling waters of a radioactive sea,” Pak stated. “I won’t say too much about how his goals develop for fear of spoilers, but a savage princess, a pack of Brood/Native hybrids, and a mysterious Earthman will play key roles as the plot thickens.”
Like the protagonist, the supporting cast of “Skaar” is composed of new characters, “so new readers will have zero trouble jumping right on board,” Pak said. “But the story’s full of Easter eggs and nifty payoffs for fans of the characters we followed through ‘Planet Hulk’ and ‘World War Hulk’ and the ‘WWH: Warbound’ mini. Every issue will reveal connections and relationships that will have special resonance for those who have followed those earlier stories.”
Pak has a number of obstacles and adversaries lined up to oppose Skaar, the most fearsome of them being Axeman Bone. “He’s an Imperial general who’s returned from the Fillian War riding a dragon at the head of a barbarian horde,” Pak said. “I know we’re all supposed to hate this guy, but the more I write the Axeman, the more I love him. He’s probably the best villain I’ve ever created. We’re revealing his back story bit by bit, and by the end, we’ll see how his insane worldview makes perfect sense — from his twisted perspective. He’s the hero of his own story, which makes him capable of almost anything and all the more terrifying as a villain.”

The Forward writes about “Magneto: Testament”

The Forward has posted an article written by Mordechai Shinefeld about “Magneto: Testament,” a five issue Marvel Comics miniseries written by Greg Pak that debuts in September. An excerpt:

“This isn’t a fantasy about a costumed superhero changing the course of history,” Pak told The Shmooze. “This is the story of a Jewish boy and his family struggling to survive.”
“Part of the goal of this story is to explore religious identity, and history, through fiction,” said Warren Simmons, “Testament” editor. “I’d say [Magneto] is one of the single richest and most intriguing characters in our medium. I think to Jewish kids, he’s a very important, complex character. I know that he was to me.”
