Following the recent string of miniseries featuring the villainous Maestro, Peter David will next turn his attention to a different — but equally as unpleasant — Hulk persona, Joe Fixit.
The co-creator of Hulk’s grey-skinned “mobster bodyguard” personality will team with artist Yildiray Cinar for a new miniseries set during David’s original run on Incredible Hulk.
“When I created Joe Fixit decades ago, it was merely as a means to shake up the standard formula,” David rold Marvel.com. “Typically Bruce would have set up some sort of situation and he would be worried that the Hulk would inevitably show up and screw things up. The storyline with Joe flipped the formula on its head, and set up the Hulk with his great situation in Vegas and he was worried that Bruce would show up to screw things up. I had no idea that the character would have this much staying power, and that so much would eventually be done with him in the pages of the Immortal Hulk. I’m thrilled that Marvel has given me this opportunity to revisit with an old friend.”
A release date has not been announced, beyond “sometime in 2023.”
