Excited about WEAPON H! Cory Smith and I are having a heck of a lot of fun and the interview gives a sense of the deeper emotional story we’re exploring with this ludicrous, over the top premise.
Here’s an excerpt from the new interview at Marvel.com:
Marvel.com: Is it difficult to write/draw the juxtaposition between military discipline and unbridled power in one character?
Greg Pak: I’m having a great time with it. I’ve written Hulk stories for years—a little over a decade, in fact! I’ve written a scientist as a Hulk (Banner), a barbarian as a Hulk (Skaar), and a cocky kid as a Hulk (Amadeus). But now I’m writing a grunt, a trained, disciplined soldier as a Hulk. And that’s a great new dynamic that opens up a whole set of new stories and themes to play with.
Cory Smith: I really like what Greg and co. have set up with Clay’s military background and how that would affect/influence a guy with this much power. He’s this unstoppable force of nature with the discipline to command or restrain that part of himself as he needs it. It’s kind of unprecedented, really. (And a whole lot of fun to draw when he cuts loose.)
