First Look: SAVAGE HULK #1

Legendary storyteller Alan Davis unleashes the Savage Hulk this June.

The Jade Giant was just too big to contain with one series – and this June, he’s smashing his way into another! Today, Marvel is proud to present your first look at SAVAGE HULK #1, the new in-continuity ongoing series featuring the Green Goliath! Legendary storyteller Alan Davis kicks off the new series with an explosive arc full of action and mayhem that only a Hulk series could contain!

The Incredible Hulk has no shortage of enemies. But he’s about to run afoul of some new ones. And it’s…the X-Men?!?! The Jade Giant is about to go toe-to-toe with Marvel’s mutants – and only one side is walking away! What could possibly drive these heroes to come to blows?

“We wanted big names, superstars and break-out talent to tell their unique stories within continuity,” says Senior Editor Mark Paniccia, in an interview with Marvel.com. “That might be now, or using elements of the past and perhaps even glimpses of the future. It all comes back to the current Hulk mythos while letting the talent cut loose with that Hulk story they’ve been dying to tell.”

Prolific comic book legend Alan Davis kicks off the exciting new series in style as a connection between Charles Xavier and Bruce Banner pits the Incredible Hulk against the Uncanny X-Men! But even as hero fights hero – two of the deadliest Hulk foes in history close in from the shadows. And it’ll take both the Hulk and the X-Men united if they’re to put a stop to the Leader and the Abomination. But can they?

Don’t miss the start of an all-new epic Hulk tale this June when Alan Davis unleashes the bombastic SAVAGE HULK #1 on comic shops this June!

Hulk sucks

Is it only me or the arts looks very sub-par

May grab this is trade. Though Marvel and it's continuous churning out of number 1 issues is alienating me just a bit.

Better then a lot of other characters. But seeing some of your comments about him on other threads, I find you hard to take seriously.

Good man.

Nice, this looks like classic hulk style stories.

Looks good, seems like classic style Hulk stories.

I've been waiting for a Hulk series where he pretty much just smashes stuff, could this be the one?

Posted by comicbookfan93

So has hulk got two ongoings now? Also thought the O5 X-Men got new costumes?

@copete: Have you read Peter David's Hulk run? In whole or in part?

Posted by Wolverine08

I'm kind of meh on Davis' art to be honest.

Did Hulk travel back in time?

First cover Hulk looks like Peter Griffin. Second cover a Simpson.

I completely agree.

I want that Alex Ross Cover As A poster.

Always ready for more Hulk comics.

Not feeling the art or the direction the book looks like it's going.

I was excited until I saw that this classic hulk from the early 1960's. I'll give it a chance, but if it's "Bah, Hulk SMASH" I'll drop it. I love Alex Ross' cover. Alan Davis' art is OK.

This first arc might take place before the costume changes.

Don't you just love seeing the original 5 together?

Posted by tximinoman

Alex Ross and Alan Davis are one of the best comic book artists of all time.

Davis is 57 years old and he's still as good as he was 20 years ago.

And then in the same preview you have John Cassaday, who was good in Asthonising X-Men but hasn't done anything good since.

Hmm. I may only have room for 1 Hulk title. Decisions...

Posted by Teerack

This takes place in the past right?

Posted by Super-Wonder

What's up with the purple pants . . . . thought we were past that.

Good I needed a new starting point for Hulk.

Edited by IDontLikeBirds

It's pretty obvious, at least to me, that this takes place in his early days. Hence why the X-men have their older costumes. I'm surprised no one else picked up on the fact that on the cover we also got Havok with his old costume, Polaris also.

Posted by The_Greatest_Username

Polaris!!!

Posted by Cafeterialoca

Eh, Redundant book. They rebooted Hulk 3 times in 2 years. I think people are tired of him.

Posted by Dabee

These 75th anniversary covers by Alex Ross have been consistently amazing.

Posted by ArturoCalaKayVee

I'm very excited for this.

Posted by bretmaverick2

Didn't we get a very similar story in the old Hulk black and white magazine back in the 70s?? PASS.

I'm surprised to.

But I'm interested in this, and I'm generally not too much of a Hulk fan. I love the simplicity of the original X-Men.

This looks like a good place for me to start reading some Hulk. Especially with the X-Men being in it at the beginning. Looks very retro.

Me too. It looks fantastic.
