Marvel Comics 10.21.09 | Hulk and Skaar just made the List

drhulk_header.jpgIt may be way early for Christmas, but Norman Osborn has already made a list, checked it twice, and decided Skaar and Hulk must pay the price in Dark Reign: The List—Hulk, and Jessica Drew metes out more vengeance in Spider-Woman #2.

 

 

Hulk Smash Osborn in Dark Reign: The List – Hulk!

Norman Osborn knows making The Hulk angry probably wasn’t the best idea, but he never considered the ramifications of ticking off Skaar!  In Dark Reign: The List – Hulk, the strength of Skaar and the brains of Banner will be put to the test as they find themselves on The List! Bruce Banner isn’t the Hulk anymore, but that’s not stopping him! Incredible Hulk scribe-and New York Times Best-Seller-Greg Pak and artist Ben Oliver join forces as the new Green Goliath and Banner go up against Osborn and his crew in Dark Reign: The List – Hulk.

The critics cannot stop buzzing about Greg Pak’s return to the Incredible Hulk:

"It’s action-packed and it features some quality characterization of Banner and Skaar." – Jesse Schedeen, IGN.com

"I think any fan of the Hulk will be happy picking this one up." – Brandon Borzelli – Comiclist.com

Marvel urges retailers to check all orders of Dark Reign: The List as it continues to generate buzz among fans. Will Skaar SMASH just like Dad or will Osborn get the best of The Hulk’s son? Find out in Dark Reign: The List – Hulk!
