There's a new Incredible Hulk series coming. What is worth noting is this series will be written by Jason Aaron with pencils by Marc Silvestri. The last series recently ended with Greg Pak's run. Now the series is getting a new start.
Marc Silvestri did a lot of work at Marvel before Top Cow got started. In all his years at Marvel, this is the first time he's worked on the Hulk. You can see from his art that it's going to be something.
Jason Aaron is quickly becoming known as an X-Men guy and this also marks his first time on Hulk.
There's the obvious question of why is the series being relaunched with a #1. It's a new run. Greg Pak spent the last few years writing Hulk. With his run over, we're entering a new era. Of course being re-numbered with a #1 will make it easier for new readers to take a chance and pick the issue up if they've never read Hulk before. If we can get more people reading comics, that's a good enough reason for me.
Marvel says this will be a Hulk story unlike anything we've ever seen. We're going to get the greatest showdown that we've been demanding, Banner versus Hulk.

And remember when I asked about Hulk having a mustache? It's about time he had some facial hair.
