Back in 2006, writer Greg Pak teamed up with artists Carlo Pagulayan and Aaron Lopresti on PLANET HULK, one of the most iconic Hulk stories ever printed. This November, Pak is picking up that storyline again alongside artist Manuel Garcia with PLANET HULK: WORLDBREAKER, a five-issue limited series which will take place a thousand years into the future and present a “shocking expansion and culmination of the mythos of Sakaar.”
Here’s the official synopsis:
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?
Speaking about the announcement, Pak said “Working on Planet Hulk remains one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had in storytelling. 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.
He continued, adding “That’s opened up doors to do some spectacular worldbuilding with mindblowing 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?”
PLANET HULK: WORLDBREAKER #1 goes on sale in print and digital formats on the 30th of November 2022.
