Hulk lands on the savage planet of SAKAAR! “Planet Hulk” by Greg Pak breaks our misconceptions about Hulk comics, giving us a character whose complexity is highlighted through his own simplicity. And while a lot of this comic is a fun ride, it rips your heart out fast and brutal before you even know what’s going on. Seriously, this is a great comic.

It’s time to hulk up as we read “Prelude to Planet Hulk,” written by Daniel Way with art from Keu Cha and Juan Santacruz. Is it possible to have sympathy for a huge, hulking brute of a character? Even when you already know that the whole point of the story is to get you to feel sympathy? Also, GAMMA RAYS!!! Ooooooh, spoooooky. No, seriously, what a bunch of savages (the Illuminati).

The big two comic book publishers come together to make what was billed as the greatest crossover in the history of superhero comics. They put their best writers and artists on the project, and had readers vote on the outcomes of matchups long asked for by fans: Silver Surfer vs. Green Lantern, Lobo vs. Wolverine, and Batman vs. Captain America, to name a few. What the reader gets instead is a deeply disappointing, sometimes disturbingly out-of-touch comic book. If only it hadn’t been written in the 90’s, maybe it could have had a shot at being more than a steaming pile. For more information, visit www.AtomicPoweredSuperCast.com!
