World War Hulk
World War Hulk launched in June and yesterday I picked up the first three issues (One for every month, the 5th and last coming out on October) and I have to see it's really really good.
It's been a really long time since I've been into comics (Ever since that whole clone thing with Spider-Man), but with all the comic movies out these days, and since free comic book day, I've been getting back into comics. Mostly I've been picking up random issues of random books, with a few trade paperbacks here and there (Spawn mostly, but also Marvel Civil War). But I picked up World War Hulk and it's probably the best book I've read in a long time.
The break down: Iron Man, Dr. Strange, Reed Richards and Black Bolt shot Hulk into space to get him off earth because he was basically causing too much collateral damage. He landed on a planet somewhere (and became king) so they sent some missiles after him and blew up the planet, including his queen wife. Now he's back on earth and madder than ever. That means he's STRONGER than ever, and he's looking for revenge.
The art is fantastic. The writing is topper than top notch, and it's a massive event spreading 5 core issues and 32 other tie ins (32!) and I'm really thinking of collecting them all. I'd recommend anyone who's liked comics to check it out, and maybe those who don't so much but like a good story. Definitely some great quality work going on here.
