It’s no secret how much I enjoy Walt Simonson’s projects. This spring he is adding something to his expansive portfolio that he has never done before: been the lead artist on the Hulk series!
iFanboy shared this news item by posting a promo picture/teaser earlier today. Starting this April, Walt is picking up the pencil for Mark Waid’s Hulk series. And with the Hulk trying to lift Mjolnir to little success, it seems that Thor will be playing a big role in this.
There is really so much to be excited on for this project, but I’ll keep it short and give you two reasons why this is ridiculously awesome:
- Mark Waid is an awesome writer and his name on the credits pretty much solidifies it being a fun read.
- Walt Simonson is drawing this, which is always a great thing but only gets better being that Thor is involved. How freaking cool is that?
It’s like Marvel is just trying to think of new things to make me spend my money on! I’m really debating on whether I’ll follow this as an issue or wait to get it in a collected form. Either way it’s going to be awesome, and knowing me I’ll probably willingly buy it in both formats!
