Hulk

Greg Pak is now writing The Totally Awesome Hulk ongoing series starring Amadeus Cho. Previously, Pak wrote Hulk stories at Marvel Comics for five and a half years starting in 2005 with the now-legendary Planet Hulk storyline, which led into World War Hulk, Marvel’s summer comics event of 2007, and Skaar: Son of Hulk, which starred Hulk’s half-alien barbarian son.

Loved writing this book and loved this moment in particular. It’s been a tremendous experience and privilege to write this next huge chapter in Amadeus Cho’s life and bring it to this huge finish. Thanks so much to everyone for supporting for the last two and a half years!

Here’s the afterword from the book. A thousand thank yous. You’re all awesome.

And here’s North Carolina retailer Lord Retail saying nice things about the book on Twitter:

The best things I wrote in 2017

We’re coming to the end of 2017, and I’m ready to kvell a bit. Here’s a list of the work I’m the most proud of in 2017. Hope ya dig!

MECH CADET YU tells the story of a janitor’s kid who bonds with a giant robot and joins the elite Sky Corps Academy. Drawn by Takeshi Miyazawa with colors by Triona Farrell and letters by Simon Bowland, the book was originally approved as a four issue miniseries. But because folks like you went nuts for it, BOOM! Studios upgraded it to an ongoing series!

I’m not supposed to say which children are my favorite. But you guys, MECH CADET YU is my favorite. I absolutely love working on the book, I love all my creative collaborators, and I love our kid heroes and all their robots and all the monsters and mystery surrounding them. Ask your local comics shop to order the first trade paperback and issue #5 for you today — both hit stores on January 10!

The PLANET HULK PROSE NOVEL came out in October, and it’s my very first prose novel! I loved every minute of working on this book and I won’t lie — I think it’s pretty great.

If you loved the original PLANET HULK comics, the prose novel’s full of extra development and revelations and a bit of a shocker of an ending that you won’t want to miss. If you’ve never read a Hulk comic in your life, I humbly propose that this novel might be a great introduction to the massive emotion and glory of the character.

And holy cow, you can get it for JUST TWO DOLLARS right now for the Kindle!

TOTALLY AWESOME HULK #15, drawn by the great Mahmud Asrar with colors by Nolan Woodard and a stunning cover by Stonehouse, may be one of my favorite single issue comics I’ve ever written. It starts the “Big Apple Showdown” storyline, which is most infamous for featuring what I’m pretty sure is the biggest team-up of Asian American superheroes ever seen in mainstream comics.

I adore my editors for letting me follow this crew of heroes around as they perform at an Asian American bone marrow registry awareness benefit, get Korean barbecue, fight over the check, and sing karaoke before defending New York from an alien invasion. I love it for the diversity within diversity, with Asian Americans of different backgrounds and generations discovering their conflicts and similarities. And I absolutely love Mahmud’s and Nolan’s gorgeous art, which brings out all the emotion, action, and sheer fun of the story.

And you can buy the collected digital volume (which also includes a two-issue story co-starring the great Jeremy Lin) for a scandalously discounted price of just $2.75 at Amazon/Comixology today!

2017.12.20 – INCREDIBLE HULK #711 in stores today!

The Return to Planet Hulk story continues as Amadeus fights in the Gauntlet to protect his new clan from the Warlord!

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!

DJD2BLJW0AIfJLnHere’s some gorgeous new art from INCREDIBLE HULK #709, written by yours truly, drawn by Greg Land, with inks by Jay Leisten and colors by Frank Darmata!

Here’s the solicit:

RETURN TO PLANET HULK Part 1

When Amadeus Cho picks up a distress signal from a distant planet he’s shocked to find out it’s from SAKAAR. As the Totally Awesome Hulk, he’s been trying to avert the curse of anger that haunted Bruce Banner. But SAKAAR is a place for warriors and gladiators…a place where the Hulk fought brutally in the Imperial Arena…who is calling Cho for help?

In stores October 18 – ask your local retailer to pre-order it for you today!

Greg Pak’s writing a PLANET HULK prose novel, in stores this October!

51yFz02D7JL

The rumors are true! I’m writing a prose novel based on the PLANET HULK comic book storyline! The book comes out in October and you can pre-order it here for 31 percent off.

The PLANET HULK prose novel will be my first published novel and I’m over the moon about it. The entire experience has been amazing, flexing new muscles and diving back into one of my favorite stories to find new nuances and surprises. If you’ve never read the PLANET HULK comics, have no fear — this will be entirely accessible to brand new readers. If you’re an old-school PLANET HULK fan, you absolutely don’t want to miss this — it’s packed with deeper looks and some surprising developments.

Huge thanks to everyone who’s been so supportive of my Hulk work over the years — this wouldn’t have happened with out you. Much love to all the editors and artists who made the PLANET HULK comics so special. And big thanks to my PLANET HULK prose novel editor Stuart Moore!
