Born in fire. Raised by monsters. Destined to destroy. On an alien planet shattered by war, no one is stronger than Skaar, the savage Son of Hulk. But as a Fillian warlord, an Imperial princess, and a mysterious Earthman spread chaos through the wastelands, will Skaar save the puny survivors -- or smash them? Another epic fever dream from Greg Pak, writer of "Planet Hulk" and World War Hulk" -- featuring the return of legendary Hulk artist Ron Garney!
Part "end of the world" epic, part Mad Max-meets-Conan the Barbarian, Skaar: Son of Hulk is the tale of the Marvel Universe's most genetically inclined monster who may be best understood by his book's own description, "Humans would call you a monster...too angry...too strong...too beautiful for their puny planet...but this world is yours." That bit of dialogue also sums up the bottom line of why I think the third act of Pak's Hulk epic will outshine the earlier two: Skaar is Hulk on a world with no holds barred! As fantastic and enjoyable as "Planet Hulk" and "World War Hulk" were, in the back of every reader's head, we knew there were limits. We knew Hulk would never stay on Sakaar forever, and we knew he wouldn't end up killing the Illuminati on Earth. Much as events can change things and bring a character through an amazingly satisfying journey (like the above two did), certain aspects of the status quo must be maintained, especially within the Marvel 616. But with Skaar, Pak's got a playground for his new monster that he can do anything with, and thus can continue to deliver nothing but the aforementioned "pure awesomeness" that this first issue delivers!
