"Incredible Hulk" nears a milestone

Marvel Comics had another gathering of the comics press by phone today, this one to promote next month’s 100th issue of “The Incredible Hulk.”

Writer Greg Pak noted that although the character of the Hulk has been around for more than 40 years, this will be the first time “The Incredible Hulk” has hit the magic No. 100. That’s because of reboots, title changes, etc. The first extended run of “The Incredible Hulk” began with issue No. 102, taking over from “Tales to Astonish.”

This centennial issue comes in the midst of the massive “Planet Hulk” story line. It also will feature a backup tale that ties into the ongoing “Civil War.” And it may offer a few hints as to “World War Hulk,” Marvel’s big event for next spring.
