Hulk Art News
The following was originally posted on Marvel.com:
Wanted to clarify art chores for those curious as to who's currently working on which arcs of PLANET HULK. As you know, Carlo Pagulayan did the main story in issue 100 (ALLEGIANCE PART 1) accompanied by a bonus story illustrated by Gary Frank that seems to be quite the buzz amongst fans (a battle of wit between rebellious teen genius Amadeus Cho and smartest man in the world Reed Richards).
Issue 101 also sports art by Pags and Frank, with Aaron Lopresti stepping in for the remaining issues of the ALLEGIANCE arc-102 and 103-while Pags takes on the two-part ARMAGEDDON arc, issues 104 and 105, the final chapter of PLANET HULK.
Over the weekend I received finished pencils of 104 from Pags and they are stupendous. I'll share only two with you as I don't want to spoil, just give a taste. Lopresti sent me artwork, too, but showing those pages would give away too much…trust me they are powerful.
Ladrönn's final two covers should be coming within the next two weeks. Hopefully, he'll be doing covers for another HULK-related series for us later in 2007. Will keep you updated.
In the meantime, Gary Frank is working on issue 106 which comes out just before WORLD WAR HULK 1 (Greg is a very busy writer right now). Expect to see more of Amadeus as he plays the part of stacking a certain deck for a certain visitor who's coming to town.
