As Marvel continually announces (and teases) their upcoming lineup of comics, post Secret Wars, fans are getting more of a glimpse of the new slate of titles. Recently, Marvel announced something totally awesome – The Hulk!
No longer The Incredible Hulk, the Green Goliath (Jade Giant is She-Hulk, right?) will star in a new book called The Totally Awesome Hulk. Issue 1 smashes its way to your local comic shop this Fall. While we don’t know too much about what makes him totally awesome, more so than being incredible, we do know that it’s no longer Dr. Bruce Banner as the giant, rage monster. Writer Greg Pak and artist Frank Cho will be the team on board for this new adventure and we think it may be one worth looking into.
What are your thoughts on this new universe of Marvel heroes and villains? Does it seem like they’re going by way of their Distinguished Competition ala The New 52? Or is this just another Marvel NOW! / Point One situation?
TOTALLY! AWESOME! HULK!
New York, NY—June 25th, 2015— Strap in, hold on, and Hulk out – because you’re in for a rollercoaster ride! This Fall, Marvel proudly brings to you THE TOTALLY AWESOME HULK #1 – a brand-new ongoing series! We promise, True Believer – you’ve neverseen a Hulk like this before! Legendary and storied Incredible Hulk scribe Greg Pak (Planet Hulk) returns to the green goliath’s ongoing adventures. And he’s bringing blockbuster artist Frank Cho (Mighty Avengers, Savage Wolverine) along for the ride!
“For decades, Dr. Bruce Banner has buckled under the weight of his fearsome alter ego, the Incredible Hulk,” Says Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “Now, someone else is going to take away Banner’s burden, hoist it onto his frail shoulders like it weighs no more than a leaf, and embrace the pure fun being the most powerful being in the Marvel Universe. It’s the Hulk like you’ve never seen him before: unleashed, unapologetic and totally awesome.”
But who is this mysterious new Jade Giant? And just what has happened to Bruce Banner in the previous eight months? All will be revealed – and the answers will surprise you! Not tormented. Not conflicted. Just a giant green wrecking machine who loves being the Hulk. But will that spell trouble for the entire Marvel Universe?
“We ain’t kidding – this is an all-new Hulk,” says writer Greg Pak in an upcoming interview with Marvel.com. “We’re breaking new ground here – no return to established personalities of the past. But what’s going on is indeed grounded in the history of the character and will delve into the central themes of the Hulk in exhilarating new ways.”
Big heart, big humor, high stakes and bombastic action await! Be there as this new Hulk’s exciting journey begins. It’s going to be TOTALLY AWESOME. Don’t miss the gamma explosion of epic proportions when THE TOTALLY AWESOME HULK #1 comes to comic shops and digital devices this Fall!
