"Planet Hulk," what Marvel Comics is calling "the biggest Hulk event in the Jade Giant's history," is set to begin in Incredible Hulk #92.

Greg Pak, writer of Phoenix: Endsong, is teaming with artist Carlo Pagulayan to bring the Hulk a ride leading up to Incredible Hulk #100.

"Most of the great Marvel characters are misfits -- that's the classic Marvel twist which makes these heroes so compellingly human," Pak said. "But the Hulk may be the greatest misfit of all-he has the heart of a hero, but in the eyes of puny humans, his incredible anger and power make him the planet's most terrifying monster."

"Planet Hulk" will find the Hulk completely out of his element, stranded on a distant world with inhabitants just as powerful as he is. So is it possible for the Hulk to survive this harsh planet? And possibly even thrive there?

"'Planet Hulk' thrusts the Hulk into a savage world in which a corrupt empire uses the spectacle of bloody gladiatorial combat to distract its citizens, discipline its slaves, and dispose of its enemies," Pak said. "In a world in which might makes right and he who wins in the arena has the chance to influence thousands, what path will the Hulk take? Will the monster become a hero? Or will he become the worst tyrant the universe has ever seen?"

"I'm hugely excited about the story. It combines a fun science fiction premise with a great character arc. And we've got monsters and robots, swords and spaceships, a corrupt emperor and a fierce woman warrior, bug people, Shadow Walkers, and the Hulk at his angriest and most vulnerable and most lethal on the precipice of huge decisions and new directions. And to top it off, Carlo Pagulayan is penciling. He's a superstar in the making and his Hulk is going to blow people's minds."

Look for a new supporting cast, new enemies and possibly even a new love interest.

"I think this story is going to become one of the most definitive Hulk arcs in years," said editor Mark Paniccia. "We're looking into the heart of the monster side of Bruce Banner. What will we find? You're going to be shocked...and moved. And we promise there's going to be lots of action in this series."


Daniel Acuņa, the artist whose recent work include covers on JLA and Outsiders, has signed an exclusive agreement with DC Comics.

"It's unbelievable that DC, the publisher that gave me my favorite comics as a teenage fan, has offered me now this opportunity," Acuņa said.

"I can't stop asking myself if this isn't a dream. It's very exciting to be able to work with characters with such a long and magnificent history, characters that my father read when he was young. To me it's a real honor to have the chance to leave my mark on them."

"I'm simply astounded by Acuna's talent," said Editorial Art Director Mark Chiarello. "He is somehow able to blend the dynamics of American comic art with a sophisticated European graphic album style. His recent covers for the JLA and Outsiders put him in that rarified air of super cover artists like Adam Hughes, Alex Ross and James Jean."
