hulkWriter: Greg Pak

Story: Giant monsters are mysteriously finding themselves on Earth and running amok, so nineteen-year-old super genius, Amadeus Cho, now endowed with the ability to transform into a Hulk, managed by his sixteen-year-old super genius sister, has tasked himself with containing and finding the root cause of the threat. Meanwhile Bruce Banner’s fate is slowly revealed.

Why read it?: Though a fairly contemporary writer, Grag Pak has written some of the all time classic Hulk stories, including Planet Hulk and the massive event, World War Hulk,  he also created the brilliant but criminally under-appreciated and underused character Amadeus Cho. Now returning to Marvel he’s been put back on to the book that made his name and has added a twist that has invigorated a character that has been waining for the last half decade or so, to the degree that it’s more fun than almost every other comic on the stands. Aided and abetted by the remarkable artist, Frank Cho, who’s crisp yet detailed and dynamic style adds as much life to the character as Pak’s story, and what you have is a comic that is amongst the top five of Marvel’s new line.
