Hulk Reading Help

#1 Posted by z1co80 (176 posts) - - Show Bio

Hey,

I am hoping someone can help me, I have just gotten into Comics/Graphic Novels and my issue i am having is it's so hard to follow. I decided to follow Batman and the Hulk and with much searching and help on the Batman forum on this site i have managed to get a list of the Books i need to get to best follow Batman. As a new reader i am not ashamed to admit i am struggling a bit.

For instance, I have purchased

  • Planet: Hulk
  • World War Hulk

I know that the order is now Fall of the Hulks, World War Hulks but i dont know if all i have to buy for Fall of the Hulks is the following

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hulk-Fall-Hulks-Prelude-Incredible/dp/0785143157/ref=pd_bxgy_b_img_c

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fall-Hulks-Vol-1-Jeph-Loeb/dp/1846534623/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_nC?ie=UTF8&coliid=I32ONAJKLS038R&colid=4IY5PML8M3VH

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fall-Hulks-Vol-2-Jeph-Loeb/dp/1846534631/ref=pd_sim_b_4

Will i also need to purchase tie ins or does that links i posted cover everything?

With regards to World War Hulks, I dont know what i have to buy. I have been looking for a way to get the whole Hulk story in as few books as possible because i will also being purchasing Secret Wars, Infinity Gauntlet, Infinity War, Infinity Crusade, Secret War, Avengers: Disassembled, House of M, Annihilation bk 1,2 & 3, Road to Civil War, Frontline 1 & 2, Civil War: Amazing Spider-Man, Silent War, Annihilation Conquest bk 1,2 & 3.

Sounds stupid but i am just trying to know what i need so i have my wishlists on Amazon in order. My apologies if these are questions that have been posted before but i am just a bit overwhelmed at the moment. I have being searching this site and Wiki for a while and have learned a lot but i am just stuck at the moment.

Thanks

I was in the same position as you a few months ago mate, went out and bought WWH and Planet Hulk and they were definetly good ones to start on. I Knew the basic history of the character but not much else though and was abit stuck on where to go next so I started just reading any forums on hulk an it fills in so much of the history and gives a sense of what to read next.

Thanks for replying bud. Yeah i am just lost, I mean is Fall of the Hulks volume 1 & 2 the whole story? or is it better to get them in trade paperback which i've read is harder to follow the story.

I dont know lol, Its a pain in the you know what. I've searched for a comprehensive Hulk reading order from Planet Hulk but i haven't found anything that good, Tried searching this site for but this site doesn't have a review on the two books (Fall of the Hulks vol 1 & 2) i linked in the OP, well i cant find it if they do.

I dont even have a Comic book store close to me so everything i am trying to find out is online. :(
