Incredible Hulk Online has interviewed writer Greg Pak about his return to “Incredible Hulk” beginning with issue #601 this Wednesday. Here’s an excerpt:

IHEOD: Your book will actually have Skaar and Bruce Banner who can not currently turn into the Hulk. How does that dynamic change the stories you can tell?
GP: It’s a fantastic dynamic for exploring the fundamental themes that have made the Hulk a classic character. Banner’s always tried to find a way to stop the Hulk from rampaging. Now he’s trying to deal with his Hulkish son. The great thing is that it makes Banner himself more active and outwardly focused. And the Banner/Skaar dynamic provides the opportunity for immediate, back-and-forth conflict and dialogue that the Banner/Hulk dichotomy doesn’t always permit. One effect is that the new book may end up having a few more laughs, which I dig. At the same time, the father/son issues in the story are as deep as any themes I’ve tackled in comics, which gives us the kind of human drama that I love to really sink my teeth into as both a writer and reader.
IHEDO: 7. What can you tell the diehard Hulk fans like myself who are anxious to see a little bit more of the big green guy than we have in the last year?
GP:: All good things come to those who wait. There’s a plan behind all of this and if we do our jobs right, the payoffs are going to blow your minds. The goal here is to take you on a crazy journey down paths you didn’t even know existed to a destination you never imagined — and when you get there, you realize it’s exactly where you want to be.
