Less than two years after Marvel launched The Indestructible Hulk comic book series, the company is rebooting the series again this April and simply renaming it Hulk. It will still be written by Indestructible’s Mark Waid, but Mark Bagley (Ultimate Spider-Man) will be joining him now on the art duties. In an interview with Comic Book Resources, Waid had this to say about the direction of the new book:
Not MUCH I can say without tipping my hand, but let's say that Banner's in a VERY bad way physically as the series opens up a few hours after the end of the previous one -- and you'll be surprised in whose hands his life rests! For the time being, Banner and Hulk will be divided in a way we've never seen before on a long-term basis, and those who are eager to see the Hulk once more be his "own" character will be very pleased, I think.
There have been a half dozen, or so, Hulk solo titles over the years, so Waid and Bagley are going to have to bring fans something truly unique to actually stand out from the rest. You’ll have to wait until Hulk #1 drops in April to see if they can stick the landing. Until then, check out two covers from the debut issue, by Jerome Opeña and Mark Bagley.
