Wizard interviews Pak about the Hulk

On the eve of the Mighty Marvel Smashfest which is “World War Hulk” #1, Wizard interviews writer Greg Pak about the story. Here’s an excerpt:

What do you think the Hulk’s biggest hurdle is going to be when he lands on Earth?
PAK: I’d hazard a guess that Doctor Strange may provide the biggest challenge. First, because he’s the Sorcerer Supreme. Second, because of all the Illuminati, he has the most history and closest friendship with the Hulk. And third, because in issue #4 of World War Hulk, something goes way, way, way too far. I’ll say no more.
Are there any other landmark issues readers should watch out for?
PAK: Incredible Hulk #110, written by yours truly with pencils by the inestimable Carlo Pagulayan, includes a shocking revelation about the Hulk’s true nature. Hulk fans absolutely won’t want to miss this one.

Philly.com raves about “Battlestar Galactica” #5

Philly.com has published a rave review from Jerome Maida of “Battlestar Galactica” #5, written by Greg Pak with pencils by Nigel Raynor. An excerpt:

Set in the middle of the second season, writer Greg Pak successfully captures the sophistication of the show as well as its overall vibe and that of its numerous and unique characters. Whether it’s Commander Adama’s quiet strength, Starbuck’s cockiness and cool, Number Six’s sultry manipulations, Gaius Baltar’s psychoses and desire for self-preservation or President Roslin’s steel will, all these characters ring true

Such complex storytelling combines with Nigel Raynor’s stellar art to make “Battlestar Galactica” a must-read for fans and nonfans alike.
