The website Kung Fu Rodeo raves about “Planet Hulk” in a post entitled “Marvel’s Top 5 Underappreciated Gems.” An excerpt:

CBR interviews Greg Pak about “World War Hulk”

Writer Greg Pak talks with ComicBookResource.com’s Dave Richards about the end of “Planet Hulk” and the upcoming “World War Hulk” Marvel Comics event — and drops some hints about who might appear in the “Incredible Hulk” tie-in issues. An excerpt:

On Earth, one person sympathetic to the Hulk has been paying close attention to the outcome of “Civil War.” “Amadeus Cho, AKA Mastermind Excello, a genius kid on the run from a nefarious secret agency, had a close encounter with the Hulk back in ‘Amazing Fantasy’ (v2) #15. Amadeus became a huge Hulk advocate and confronted Reed Richards over the Illuminati’s exiling of the Hulk in ‘Incredible Hulk’ #100,” Pak stated. “The end of the Civil War has only confirmed Amadeus’s suspicion of and contempt for the government and the superheroes that toe the party line. He’ll play a big role in the ‘World War Hulk’ event — primarily in ‘Incredible Hulk’#106 to #109. His goal is to round up the heroes with the guts to side with the Hulk upon his return. We’ll see him confront She-Hulk and Doc Samson in ‘Incredible Hulk’ #106, find out what’s up with Namor in #107, and learn how Amadeus’s team of Renegades deals with the terrifying reality of the Hulk’s return in #108 and #109. Issue #109 will be particularly significant, with a pretty spectacular Hulk-related revelation — dontcha dare miss it!”
