First Look: HULK #1 -- All-New Marvel NOW!

Smash your way into this preview for the new series.

HULK #1

This April, the Jade Giant returns for an all-new ongoing series from Eisner Award winning writer Mark Waid and critically acclaimed artist Mark Bagley! Now is the perfect chance to jump on board as the epic “Banner D.O.A” begins in HULK #1!

Following the shocking ending of Indestructible Hulk – Bruce Banner lay at inches from death. As he clings to life, the mystery of his attacker will have everyone talking. Who shot Bruce Banner? And why did they want him dead?

“As our series opens, Banner's at death's door”, says Waid. “…having learned something about himself that cuts him to the quick and calls into question everything he's been doing for what he believes is the public good. And things don't improve for him from there.”

“You'll see Bruce Banner in a whole new light,” Waid continued.

Did his unknown attacker want Banner dead? Or the Hulk? One thing is for certain – if he survives, it won’t be as the same Bruce Banner we’ve known! And as the mystery deepens, everything you thought you knew about the Hulk will change!

How will the Green Goliath solve the mystery of his enigmatic attacker? How can he? Don’t miss a single moment as the explosive new series kicks off with a gamma bomb sized revelation this April in HULK #1!

Hmmm, nah, I'll pass. I'm excited for the DD relaunch tbh, and for Peter coming back, gotta save room for those.

So I'm thinking Banner was shot in the head and transforms into Hulk, so now the bullet is stuck because it's not strong enough to break Hulks skin but if he turns back into Banner it will kill him.

Actually, as waid explained, Banner will start shifting in personalities, while hulk will become smart and stay the same.

Damn i'm so excited, it's like the Hulk-verse suddenly became SUPER awesome!

Kinda lost intrest in the Indestructible volume towards the middle, but that animal variant is something I want badly!

I hate when Marvel re-launch the issues. Seriously, man. :( We'd love to see our favorite titles to reach #100!

Pretty decent preview, more entertaining than Waid's Hulk has been thus far but I'm not sold on where Waid's taking a character for once. I might drop his Hulk run after Indestructible in all honesty.

a role reversal story in a hulk series we've never seen that befor (rolls eyes & shakes head) i expected more form mark waid but if this is the road hes taking or if this is what marvel whats him to do then thats just stupid

I think the days of that at the big 2 are over

Edited by dbatdog

how long will Marvel keep on rebooting their titles? they kept on saying all new series, but they're the same characters, just different story and all. :(

Well all the role reversals, especially Aarons( which was sh*t), were't that decent, and we've never seen banner change his personality before, at least not in the literal sense.

Too many shades of green!

This preview seems amazing so far.I was a little bit sceptical about this book since I got pretty bored with Indestuctible but this seems really f**king interesting.

I still don't get the hate over the renumbering and such. Its a new Arc, new story, new chapter. Catalogs easier. loved the days of the old issue 400, but really who cares? I'll take quality stories over a number in the bottom right corner.
