The Incredible Hulk Will "Stay Angry" During Punisher Team-Up

An angry guy with incredible strength and an angry guy with a lot of guns. The bad guys better run for their lives.

Yesterday Marvel announced their "next big thing." Let's just say, there's going to be a lot of anger issues here. The next arc in THE INCREDIBLE HULK will be called "Stay Angry" and feature the Punisher.

Preview art by Michael Komarck

Jason Aaron will be joined by his PUNISHERMAX artist, Steve Dillon. The action begins in INCREDIBLE HULK #8.

Jason Aaron said the following:

Hulk is a character like Wolverine where I can mix it up in terms of tone. It swings from being pretty dark to more crazy and outrageous. I really like going from one extreme to the other, often within the same story. It's easy to do that with Hulk and that will continue.

"Stay Angry" flows out of the end of Hulk vs Banner, which has a big, shock ending that changes Hulk's status quo and dynamic again. All I can really say is this is a five-issue story with each issue relatively self-contained for the most part, done by a different artist and in a different location. Hulk is bouncing around the world trying to figure out what's going on and who's beyond it, and he must stay angry.

Getting Steve Dillon right off PunisherMAX onto Incredible Hulk is the craziest gift in years. His story is set in Mexico and guest stars The Punisher.

Wolverine, Kraven the Hunter and some new characters will show up across "Stay Crazy." There will be Atlantean mobsters, Russian super soldiers and lots of Big Foots.

Apparently Hulk's new thing after "Hulk vs. Banner" will be he has to stay angry. This arc will be in issues #8-12. Steve Dillon will deal with Hulk in Mexico meeting up with Hulk. Other parts will feature different artists that Aaron worked with before. Hulk will be going all over the world and Aaron mentioned there will be a couple places we haven't seen before.

It all begins in May.

If marvel spent the amount of time they did on hulk wolverine & so forth on other more unknown characters they'd maybe have better overall sales ... sigh as much as i love frank i can't stand reading about the hulk .

What are you talking about? Marvel have been pushing characters like Hercules, Alpha Flight, X-23, Moon Knight, Daken, Black Panther, Ghost Rider, Venom etc.

@HellionVulcan:

Except they do, thing is Hulk and Wolverine are still more popular.

@DATNIGGA: Or they didn't get back together and if he doesn't stay angry, he dies.

& all they did is ruin them & get their comics canceled as Venom is still going strong but the rest have no solo based comic as i loved dakens & x-23 but bad choices made sales drop fast which saddens me as i really enjoyed what they had built up with them .Moon knight last current one was horrible i read most of it & it just wasn't Moon knight that i knew & liked so much as i own most of the hardcoversback when moon knight was at his best comic story wise .@VenomMelendez said:

because they get used 90% of the time more then any other character besides x-men/avengers so marvel will never change the cycle or take chances because they'll end up doing what i said up above . .

@spiderbat87: sorry. my bad.

Posted by Kallarkz

hopefully this will not mean that banner and hulk will be reunited...but chances are of course this is what that is.

so sad.

Steve Dillon will deal with Hulk in Mexico meeting up with Hulk

What? meeting up with Hulk? ( Did you mean Frank?)

Posted by The Impersonator

I'll stay angry for this one. =P

@HellionVulcan :

Trying and not being successful are 2 different things.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Well, wouldn't be Hulk if he didn't stay angry, would it? :) I'm excited for this art though, I really am.

Posted by TheGoldenOne
Not a fan of Steve Dillon's art at all -__-
Posted by JonesDeini

Yeah, loved them on Max but Aaron doing 616 Frank in a Hulk crossover? Nah, yo. I'm good. I'll just keep reading Rucka's Punisher and hope this stories never acknowledged in it.

Posted by iLLituracy

Aaron's run on Hulk hasn't been all that appealing thus far.

Posted by Deadpuddle

Going to be awesome!!!

must buy punisher oh yes but may damn to far away -.-

Idk. Thor has been getting a lot of attention though.

Just a suggestion, as someone may know something already and prove me wrong but... loot at the picture, look in the direction where The Punisher is shooting Hulk. Just below that, at Hulk's back, is something in the picture resembling an Exit Wound.... (((?)))

I wonder if...

The shock ending to the conflict with Red Hulk could be that Hulk is no longer invulnerable, the only reason I can think why The Punisher - who did not get amnesia and forget that Hulk could never be stopped with bullets and explosions - would ever think that to pull a freakin !!!PISTOL!!! on The Hulk would seem like a good idea. Unless he's discovered that he's no longer impervious to anything. Therefore the Hulk would have to stay angry to stop the Marvels getting any bright ideas, which is what the picture is suggesting.

Anyone thought that or anything else similar?

I look foward to this next arc in Hulk coming up Punisher and Him I have good feelings anout this paring. should be interesting to say the least.
