Return to ‘Planet Hulk’ in November’s ‘Worldbreaker’

Greg Pak and Manuel Garcia head into Sakaar’s distant future in a new miniseries.

Greg Pak will return once again to the planet of Sakaar, the deadly setting of the epic Planet Hulk storyline, for Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker.

The five-issue miniseries will be drawn by Manuel Garcia, Cam Smith and Chris Sotomayor.

“Working on Planet Hulk remains one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had in storytelling,” Pak told Marvel.com. “So it was a huge thrill to get the call from editor Mark Paniccia inviting me to dive back in. What makes this story feel so special is that we’re going back to Sakaar a thousand years in the future. That’s opened up doors to do some spectacular world-building with mind-blowing art from Manuel Garcia, Cam Smith and Chris Sotomayor. And we’re exploring big emotional stories that pay off the huge themes of the Hulk and the Green Scar that I’ve built over many years through all my Hulk stories. In a time of change and crisis, what do we do with the power we have, and how do we handle the terrifying repercussions? A thousand years from now, who knows where those questions will take us?”

The story takes place in the far future, building on the legacy of the original story:

A thousand years from now on the planet Sakaar, a young woman with green skin searches for the legendary Green Scar to help save her brother from a group of apocalyptic cultists. But which Hulk will she find? And after all these years, is he truly the Sakaarson, who will save us all—or the Worldbreaker, who will destroy us?

Loom for the first issue on Nov. 30.
