Warbound

A Marvel Comics miniseries written by Greg Pak with pencils by Leonard Kirk and Rafa Sandoval

During the “Planet Hulk” epic, the Hulk bonded with a group of alien warriors in the slave pits of Sakaar. They became the Warbound, sworn to stand by each other, in life and in death. After fighting alongside the Hulk during “World War Hulk,” the Warbound now find themselves enmeshed in a new adventure right here on planet Earth — joined by one of the Hulk’s greatest loves and facing one of the Hulk’s deadliest enemies.

Newsarama on “Warbound” #1:

[Pak] takes great care to flesh out and solidify the personalities of his players, and the effort shines through…. This may be the most familiar “Incredible Hulk” book on the stands. It stars monsters on the run from oppressive government forces hellbent on destroying them without empathy or understanding. People who enjoyed seeing the Hulk out of place during Planet Hulk, should enjoy seeing the situation flipped, with his Warbound acting in his familiar role.

Pak talks “Planet Skaar” at Marvel.com

In a new interview at Marvel.com, writer Greg Pak discusses “Skaar” #11, featuring the return of the Warbound as the Son of Hulk plows his way across Planet Earth. Here’s an excerpt:

Pak, who created the Warbound during “Planet Hulk,” has no trouble picking which member of the group he has the most fun writing.
“Korg, the mighty stone man from Krona, natch,” the writer confesses. “Korg’s a rock, both literally and metaphorically. Now I love writing antiheroes with flawed motivations and really bad manners as much as the next guy. But there’s something special about writing a character with such a big, big heart who always seems to know the right thing to say and do. We all need a Korg in our lives, don’t we?”

Pak Talks Comics: Giant new Reader Q&A!

Greg Pak’s latest “Pak Talks Comics” column is up at BrokenFrontier.com — and it’s chock full of Reader Q&A about Skaar, War Machine, and Magneto — along with a few sneak preview pages from “Incredible Hercules” #126. Here’s an excerpt:

IH: 3) When can we be expecting another Warbound story? I’m not asking anything about the specifics of what’s going on in it if you are writing it but rather when we will get to see them in action again?
GP: Soon! And yes! And thanks for asking!

Taimur Dar: It’s been hinted that Skaar will soon be coming to Earth and meeting his dad. Any chance of him meeting up with the Warbound? Do you still have plans for them in one of the books you write?
GP: Hey, two Warbound questions in one sitting! Yes, we will see the Warbound again. And yes, that will happen in the pages of “Skaar.” As to the rest, keep on reading!

BS: … are you going to explain how Magda survived the liquidation of the Gypsy families at Auschwitz? Fans have speculated that Magneto, in his position as a Sonderkommando, was somehow able to arrange for her to be smuggled into the Jewish women’s camp. But it’s just a theory, and I hope you’ll address it. Thanks for staying true to history, and at the same time writing a truly compelling story.
GP: We absolutely will address this question in the last issue of “Magneto Testament.” Things won’t play out the way you might expect, but everything that happens matches the actual history of the Gypsy Family Camp in Auschwitz.

Wizard digs “Warbound” #5

Andy Serwin gives “Warbound” #5 the nod at WizardUniverse.com:

The action comes fast and furious, as you’ve come to expect with the Hulk spinoff books, and Pak and Kirk don’t disappoint. There’s even a touching death scene that sets off a whole new status quo, as the Warbound lose one member, only to gain another. Personally, I’m hoping the Warbound don’t take too long a hiatus; I’d like to see them back in a Hulk book ASAP.

Wizard loves “Warbound” #4

“Warbound” #4, written by Greg Pak with pencils by Leonard Kirk, hit comic book stores yesterday, and WizardUniverse.com has posted a rave review. Here’s an excerpt:

It all boils down to an orgy of earth-shattering violence, gorgeously rendered by Kirk in frenetic, breath-stealing action sequences. And if you want the sweetest bromance moment since those two cowboys went up the mountain in ‘Brokeback,’ check out the tender scene where Korg offers to have babies with Hiroim! (I’m sound like I’m joking, but have a Kleenex handy). Pak has transformed these supporting characters into a full-fledged ensemble that’s as tight a team book as you’ll read in the Marvel U.; here’s one peaceful reader who hopes this Warbound never ends.
