Greg Pak has written multiple classic runs of Hulk stories, including the Planet Hulk epic that inspired the gladiator storyline in the Thor: Ragnarok movie, the 2007 event comic World War Hulk, Skaar: Son of Hulk, which starred Hulk’s half-alien barbarian son, and The Totally Awesome Hulk ongoing series starring Amadeus Cho.
You can buy signed copies of a lot of these books at the Greg Pak Shop!
The folks at the Asian Author Alliance are organizing an auction fundraiser to help two organizations that work against anti-Asian racism — Stop AAPI Hate and Hate is a Virus. I’m donating a bundle of signed #1 comics featuring Asian and Asian American characters, including TOTALLY AWESOME HULK #1, KINGSWAY WEST #1, MECH CADET YU #1, RONIN ISLAND #1, WAR OF THE REALMS: NEW AGENTS OF ATLAS #1 (with the first appearance of Wave), and AGENTS OF ATLAS #1.
If you’re concerned about this ongoing wave of anti-Asian harassment and violence, another thing you can do is sign up for the Bystander Intervention Training sessions this March from Hollaback! and Asian Americans Advancing Justice. Click here to find out more and sign up. I did!
Sending big love to everyone. Please do keep watching out for each other and stay safe out there.
Bill Mantlo’s MICRONAUTS meant the world to me as a kid and I dedicated my five year HULK run to him in INCREDIBLE HULK #635. Please consider helping his brother out now to help with is care if Bill’s work ever moved you and you have the means.
Words by Greg Pak (hey, that’s me!), line art by Ario Anindito, colors by Morry Hollowell, letters by Joe Caramanga, and cover by Greg Land. And here’s the official solicit:
At last! It’s Weapon H versus his predecessors—Wolverine and the Hulk! Once, the Weapon X program sought to recreate the world’s two greatest hunters. They ended up with Weapon H, a man of Adamantium claws and gamma-juiced blood. Now, Wolverine and the Hulk are back in action — and coming after the dangerous creation made in their name!
I’m also doing a signing of HULKVERINES #1 at Midtown Comics Downtown in NYC on February 22 — see you there!
Excited about this book — it’s got ludicrously bombastic superhero action, like all the WEAPON H stories, combined with a big emotional centering on our hero Clayton Cortez and his wife Sonia Sung. And it features the Leader, one of my favorite Marvel villains of all time, all gorgeously drawn by Ario, colored by Morry, and lettered by Joe!
An interior page from INCREDIBLE HULK #717, the last issue of my third Hulk run. In comic shops now!
Art by Carlo Barberi and Walden Wong, colors by Frank D’armata, letters by Cory Petit.
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.
INCREDIBLE HULK #716 hits stores this Wednesday, featuring art by Marco Lorenzana, colors by Frank D’armata, letters by Cory Petit, and a cover by Greg Land. Ask your local shop to hold a copy for you today!
Thrilled that WEAPON H #1 and INCREDIBLE HULK #714 hit comic book shops today! Ask your local shop to hold you copies!
WEAPON H #1 tells the story of Clay, an ex-soldier who’s been turned into a terrifying Hulk/Wolverine hybrid. Clay just wants to be left alone, but he can’t seem to stand by when innocents are threatened — no matter what the consequences. Line art by Cory Smith, colors by Morry Hollowell, and letters by Joe Caramagna. I absolutely love working on this book — it’s big, bombastic Marvel mayhem with a huge amount of emotional story and heart — my favorite kind of thing to write. Dontcha dare miss it!
INCREDIBLE HULK #714 is the start of my last story on the book — in which Amadeus Cho returns to Earth after a trip to Planet Sakaar — and finally loses his fight with the Dark Hulk within! Big, big consequences coming! Line art by Carlo Barbieri, inks by Walden Wong, colors by Frank D’Armata, letters by Cory Petit.
Pretty excited about this one, folks! INCREDIBLE HULK #712 hits comic shops today, written by yours truly with art by Greg Land and Jay Leisten, colors by Frank D’armata, and letters by Cory Petit! Check out the preview here and ask your local shop to hold a copy for you today!
And here’s North Carolina retailer Lord Retail saying nice things about the book on Twitter:
You’re always up for a Hulk vs Thor (the Odinson) battle, right? Incredible Hulk #712 has one for you. Yes, its Return to Planet Hulk part 4 but you can just enjoy the one issue. You may also learn new appreciation for Amadeus Cho and what makes him different from any other Hulk.
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.
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.
