What if? Planet Hulk

29 10 2007

No major crossover event at Marvel is complete until there is a What if? issue.

Official Press Release

As the summer’s biggest comic book event, World War Hulk, rages on, acclaimed writer behind it now turns his attentions to what could have been in What If? Planet Hulk. From Planet Hulk and World War Hulk author Greg Pak, artists Leonard Kirk, Rafa Sandoval and Fred Hembeck, comes this special extra-sized one-shot showing just how the year’s top selling event could have gone in three different paths! First, what if the Hulk had arrived at the intended destination of the Illuminati? Could this peaceful planet have tamed the savage Hulk? And then, what if Hulk died and his wife instead led the army against Earth? Finally, the one page story you demanded: what if Banner, not the Hulk, landed on Sakaar? That’s tree stories, one issue and a stunning cover by Planet Hulk artist Carlo Pagulayan!

If you thought Hulk was brutal in WWH, you’ve seen nothing like Caiera’s revenge story, said editor Mark Paniccia. The Illuminati is lucky she’s not the one who came out of the stone ship. Iron Man will loose his head when he meets her (literally). Plus there are a few other surprising tie-ins to the current mythos. The other two stories are brilliant. Greg went absolutely wild with these tales.�

That’s three different outcomes for the Hulk straight from the man writing some of the most exciting stories in the character’s history! Greg Pak and friends bring you three stories that could�perhaps should have been featuring the Incredible Hulk as you’ve never seen him before! It’s What If? Planet Hulk and once you’ve finished this special extra-sized one shot, your jaw will be on the floor!

INCREDIBLE HULK #110 by Gary Frank



11 10 2007

From the “no one in there right mind ever believed he was going to stay dead forever department”:

Steve Rogers, the Sentinel of Liberty, was cut down in a hail of gunfire in March’s CAPTAIN AMERICA #25. And whether or not you agree with the decision, he’s still dead. But a character as iconic and important as Cap can never truly die. Who better to reimagine Cap for a new age, a new character, a new costume, than Alex Ross? Working closely with Ed Brubaker, Steve Epting and Tom Brevoort, Captain America makes his return—or debut, if you prefer—in January’s CAPTAIN AMERICA #34.

We all knew he was coming back. It was going to happen but it would have been nice for Marvel to make his “death” last more then 10 issues! They should have kept people guessing for years. If they think his death caused a lot of press coverage maybe leaving him gone for a few years would have really be interesting.

Judge Death action figure review

5 10 2007

Once again Superherotimes.com has a complete review on the new Judge Death action figure from the Legendary Comic Book Heroes action figure line.

Judge Death from Judge Dredd has always been a favorite villain of mine. I would put him and Joker on the same level of insaneness. That level would be 1000 of course.

Peter David takes over She-Hulk

5 10 2007

One of the greatest writers to ever take on The Incredible Hulk now sets his sights on She-Hulk.

Does She-Hulk qualify as a comic book bad girl? She is definitely busty, but she was a lawyer also. I am at a loss on this one. 


New IRON MAN teaser poster

5 10 2007

A new IRON MAN poster was released today:

The release date for this movie is May 2nd, 2008. I wonder if that will be the weekend for Free Comic Book day? I have made sure I made my way to the comic book store on that day for the last few years, if not for the free comics more to see how many people actually show up. I have been pleasantly surprised each time that there was a lot of non collectors there.

Kelly Jones is in my all-time top 10 favorite Batman artists list. The work on Red Rain was quite possible the greatest elseworlds story ever. Looks like with Steven Niles they are creating a new 12 issue series called Batman: Gotham After Midnight. I cant wait!!!


Transformers 2 out on July, 26 2009

27 09 2007

So I just recently got around to watch Transformers the other day and I have to admit it wasn?t as bad as I thought it was going to be. I mean you could take all the humans out of the film and it would be great!!! the robot on robot fight scenes were spectacular but the actors had Michael Bay stink on them. Much like Bay’s 2005 epic The Island some of it was awe inspiring but the acting was really really bad. Some one should recut Transformers to edit all the actors out, and when the robots have to talk to any of them dub in the teachers voice from Charlie Brown.

Anyway, it looks like it made enough money in the theaters to get the sequel greenlit for 07/26/09.
