Greg Pak: Hulk

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!

Just a detail from the SHE-HULK season finale “Special Thanks To” credits — which includes me and my frequent HULK collaborator Carlo Pagulayan.

What a world.

PLANET HULK WORLDBREAKER miniseries coming this November!

Planet Hulk Worldbreaker #1 cover

As you probably know, dear reader, I love the Hulk and the entire Hulk family, so I’m beyond thrilled to dive back into their world with PLANET HULK WORLDBREAKER, a new miniseries set 1000 years in the future, written by yours truly with interior art by the great Manuel Garcia, colors by the great Chris Sotomayor, and cover by Carlo Pagulayan!

I absolutely love expanding the worldbuilding and mythos of PLANET HULK with PLANET HULK WORLDBREAKER. I also love that we’re deepening the themes with our characters 1000 years down the line.

I don’t want to spoil anything, but it’s been 15 years since I wrote the last issue of the original PLANET HULK, and I’m frankly feeling every one of those years. So exploring how our characters grapple with 1000 years of experience in a chaotic world feels deeply resonant and relevant to me.

Here’s the official solicit:

A thousand years from now on the planet Sakaar, a young woman with green skin searches for the legendary Green Scar to help save her brother from a group of apocalyptic cultists. But which Hulk will she find? And after all these years, is he truly the Sakaarson, who will save us all — or the Worldbreaker, who will destroy us?

Please do feel free to ask your local comic shop to preorder PLANET HULK WORLDBREAKER #1 for you today!

2019.02.20 – HULKVERINES #1 – check out the preview!

HULKVERINES #1 hits comic shops on February 20, and Multiversity.com has a lettered, colored preview!

Check it out!

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!

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.
