It’s been a huge week of Marvel NOW! relaunch books and creative team announcements. Marvel NOW! was THE topic facing Editor in Chief Axel Alonso in this week’s Axel in Charge on Comic Book Resources – a must for every Marvel fan.
Mark Waid and Leinil Yu on The Indestructible Hulk was a big reveal. Banner and the Green Goliath will be working together and working for SHIELD? Waid is winning raves reviews for his take on Daredevil so how will Waid make his Hulk different after years of different versions on the Marvel classic. I loved Alonso’s answer.
”What Bruce Banner does in issue #1 is both a long overdue and an “oh $#!%!” moment. It sets a trajectory for years worth of stories that are different from anything we’ve done in the past. The Hulk is my personal favorite of the big-league super heroes – which, I guess, says a lot about me since he’s all about anger management issues [Laughs] – and I’m personally excited to see how Mark and Leinil’s story unfolds. I’m confident that anyone who reads issue #1 is going to stick around for the long haul.”
What will Banner do? Find out this November!
I’m still intrigued about the floating robot head that looks like Widget from Excalibur on the cover!
