Marvel Comics 01.04.08 | Hulk Sees Red

hulk-header.jpgFirst grey, then green, now this? Ol’ "Jade Jaws" takes on a crimson hue for the new year in the all-new Hulk #1 from superstar pair Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness (Superman/Batman). The Hulk’s face isn’t the only red this week, with the blood-soaked return of novelist Laurell K. Hamilton’s famed huntress in Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter: Guilty Pleasures #7, plus a new era for Marc Spector with Entourage writer Mike Benson at the helm of Moon Knight #14.

 

 

Jeph Loeb & Ed McGuinness Make The Hulk See Red!

After the Earth-shattering events of World War Hulk, the Hulk is seemingly no more…but then just who’s the red-skinned behemoth calling himself the Hulk?  The acclaimed, superstar creative team of writer Jeph Loeb (Ultimates 3, television’s Heroes) and artist Ed McGuinness present Hulk #1, launching an all-new era for Hulk that kicks off with one of his oldest cast members’ murder! Iron Man, She-Hulk and Leonard Samson are on the case, but with all evidence pointing towards Hulk as the murderer, will justice be done?

 

"When Ed McGuinness came to Marvel, he told me this was the book he was most interested in," said the Eisner Award-winning Loeb. "He was brimming with ideas, sketches, redesigns, the works.  I’ve always been a Hulk fan, Hulk: Gray is still one of my favorite things I’ve done at Marvel, and so teaming with Ed– who I had a great deal of fun with Superman/Batman– is a dream project for both of us.  We hope that the fans and retailers like the thrill ride wrapped in a mystery that we’ve created.  Ed’s art never looked better, Jason’s colors are remarkable and my good luck charm Richard Starkings’ design and lettering is magical. I’m having a blast!"

 

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Hulk #1, spinning directly out of the top-selling World War Hulk epic and featuring two of the industry’s most beloved creators. You’ve never seen the Hulk like this before! You’ve never seen the Hulk smash like this before! And, once you’ve read Hulk #1, you’ll realize why you’ve never had your jaws on the floor like this before!

A New Era Begins For Moon Knight!

He’s defeated his greatest enemies. He’s survived Civil War and joined the Initiative. But now that he’s leaving piles of broken bodies in his wake, Moon Knight is about to become a marked man in Moon Knight #14! Award-winning television scribe Mike Benson (Punisher MAX Annual 2007, HBO’s Entourage) takes over the writing reins with co-plotter Charlie Huston and the fan favorite art team of Mark Texeira & Javier Saltares (Ghost Rider) to usher in a bold new era for everyone’s favorite dark avenger! Tony Stark, AKA Iron Man, created the Initiative to show what good super   heroes can do when run by a governing body-so just what does he do with the poster child for super-powered irresponsibility? The shocking first chapter of "God & Country" sets Moon Knight down a path of no return-with hidden foes plotting his downfall!

 

"Marc Spector is a broken man," explained Benson. "He’s unpredictable. Nothing comes easy to him.  He’s an underdog and he’s not afraid to fight dirty to get what he wants. I’m a fan of the character and I’m trying to write what I would like to see as a fan — cool dialogue, hardcore fight sequences and good conflict. I have this wonderful opportunity to play in the Marvel Universe and I want to make the most of it."

 

With the return of an old foe on the horizon-one sure to put a smile on the faces of Moon Knight fans-and an imminent confrontation with Tony Stark, this is your chance to get onboard "God & Country," a startling new direction for one of 2007’s most popular vigilantes in Moon Knight #14!
