Greg Pak, Carlo Pagulayan & Aaron Lopresti - Planet Hulk
We reviewed World War Hulk in issue 599 (•••) but let’s go back to the story that launched Hulk on his revenge fuelled tirade against planet earth. The Illuminati (a secretive cabal of superheroes that includes Iron Man, Mr Fantastic, Dr Strange and Black Bolt) have come to the conclusion that there is no real solution to 'the Hulk problem' so blast him into space.
Hulk crash lands on the planet of Sakaar, a brutal world ruled via gladiatorial combat by the ruthless Red King. It's a grand sci-fi yarn of warring alien races and slave rebellions, not your usual Hulk tale but a Star Wars-esque space epic.
