Walk The Front Line Of World War Hulk


During Civil War, reporters Ben Urich and Sally Floyd brought readers a unique look at the street level view of the conflict and they've returned just in time to witness a threat larger than the Marvel Universe has ever faced! In World War Hulk: Front Line #1 (of 6), the journalistic duo bring you a unique perspective on the opening shots of this summer's "incredible" event and the initial conflict between Hulk & Iron Man that might just level Manhattan! This limited series reunites the Civil War: Front Line creative team of writer Paul Jenkins and artist Ramon Bachs to deliver a nuanced look at how the regular world is affected by Hulk's war, all wrapped up in eye-catching covers by John Watson. Just who wants to help our intrepid reporters take down J. Jonah Jameson and how will the Front Line newspaper figure into it? And when one of Hulk's allies is murdered by an unknown assailant, the NYPD is put on notice-if this mystery isn't solved, New York City won't be standing for much longer!


World War Hulk may have just begun, but it's already quite the "smash" hit with fans and critics alike. "World War Hulk looks like it's going to be a blast," said Squashua of Aint-It-Cool-News.Com.


Troy Brownfield of Newsarama.Com praised the World War Hulk tie-ins released thus far, predicting that the story may just be "one of the all-time definitive Hulk stories."


Over at IGN.Com, Richard George concurred, calling World War Hulk a "must-read," deeming early issues "a revelation."


Grab your press pass and hang out on tight as World War Hulk: Front Line #1 shows you a side of World War Hulk that you won't find anywhere else. Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on this issue, as all World War Hulk tie-ins and subsequent new printings have sold out at Diamond (though issues may be available at the retail level) and interest continues to grow in this summer's greenest and meanest comic book blockbuster!
