Following the Immortal Hulk: The Threshing Place one-shot earlier this month from Jeff Lemire and Mike Del Mundo, Marvel has announced another one-shot featuring the character, this time written and drawn by Declan Shalvey (Bog Bodies, Moon Knight).
“What Al Ewing and Joe Bennett have accomplished with Immortal Hulk is astounding. I love how the book has given the character a new twist that has expanded what can be done with (and said about the) character,” Shalvey told Marvel.com. “To get to play in this particular sandbox with this one-shot is such a thrill, it’s a great challenge as a storyteller, to add to this new mythology as both a writer and artist. Big, Hulk-sized boots to fill, I hope it lives up to the great work already accomplished by the Immortal Hulk team.”
Peter David and Javier Pina tell more stories of the Hulk’s evil, future self.
Peter David will once again dive into the futuristic dystopia created by the Hulk in Maestro: War & Pax. This time he’s joined by artist Javier Pina to tell the story of the Hulk’s futuristic, evil alter-ego, who was introduced in the landmark Future Imperfect miniseries.
“I am thrilled that, 20 years after I created him, the Maestro still intrigues people so much that the first series garnered the sort of success that demanded a follow-up,” David told Marvel.com. “As long as folks want to keep reading about him, I’m happy to keep giving them stories.”
Peter David, Dale Keown and Germán Peralta present “Maestro” this summer.
The former Hulk creative team of Peter David and Dale Keown will reteam to tell the origin story of the Maestro, the evil, future version of the Hulk from the landmark Future Imperfect miniseries.
They’ll be joined by artist Germán Peralta as they reveal how the Maestro took over the world after a nuclear holocaust.
“I had no idea that when I first created the Maestro for Future Imperfect that he would have the kind of popularity and staying power he has now,” David told Marvel.com. “Until now, I’ve only been able to allude to his origins, so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to explore them in this series, and I can’t wait for fans to see all the artwork that’s been coming in!”
