Marvel Comics has announced a new Savage Hulk Anthology series that will see Jim Starlin write a story for its second arc.
Editor Mark Pannicia announced the news on Marvel.com with mention that Alan Davis will be behind the first story.
"We wanted big names, super stars and break out talent to tell their unique Hulk stories within continuity,” Paniccia said. “That might be now, or using elements of the past and perhaps even glimpses of the future. It all comes back to the current Hulk mythos while letting the talent cut loose with that Hulk story that they’ve been dying to tell."
Pannicia let it be known that Davis' first story involves the X-Men, the Abomination as well as the Hulkbusters. When Starlin comes on board, things get a little more cosmic.
"Jim’s stuff is classic Starlin, taking Bruce and Hulk into some very freaky places and it’s another case of a creator going full blast with the kind of stuff we love to see from them. Thanos, Annihilus, Blastaar and more. It’s crazy fun and action packed and super detailed. Jim’s putting his A-game into this."
Savage Hulk #1 hits in June.
