In the wake of the New York Comic Con, my friend Jimmy Aquino interviewed me for the Comic News Insider podcast! We talked about a new comics project I’m working on for the NYC Department of Education, Planet Hulk Worldbreaker, Skaar, Darth Vader, Duo, and analog photography, accompanied by the glorious ambient sounds of Bryant Park in New York City. Check it out!
Greg Pak: Skaar
Skaar is a Marvel Comics character co-created by writer Greg Pak and artist Carlo Pagulayan. The character first appeared in World War Hulk #5, written by Greg Pak and drawn by John Romita, Jr. Skaar is the son of the Hulk and Caiera the Oldstrong, conceived on Planet Sakaar during the Planet Hulk storyline. Skaar starred in the Skaar: Son of Hulk series, launched in 2008 by Pak and artist Ron Garney. After arriving on Earth, Skaar co-starred in the Incredible Hulk series beginning with the Son of Banner storyline in issue #601 and coming to a climax at the end of the World War Hulks storyline in issue #611. The character had his first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the 2022 season finale to the She-Hulk series.
“Big sword, big fists, always angry and ready to decapitate, Skaar is my kind of fellow. Mr. Pak has spun an intense tale to grab Hulk lovers’ attention and fans of a certain muscle-bound Cimmerian. It’s just a matter of time before father returns to see how much trouble his irradiated offspring has caused. I can’t wait.”
— Joseph Szadkowski, Washington Times
You can buy signed Skaar comics at the Greg Pak Shop.
