The Hulk is a well-known fictional character and super hero appearing mainly in comics produced by the US publisher Marvel Comics. First appearing in the first issue of The Incredible Hulk, the blue-skinned character has been a staple of the comic book world ever since. Created by writer Stan Lee and illustrator Jack Kirby, the hulking hero first appeared in the very first issue of The Incredible Hulk. The Hulk is an indestructible being with incredible strength and endurance. Bruce Banner, known as the Hulk, is the Hulk's partner and best friend.
The Incredible Hulk was a major hit among readers when it was launched in any market around the world. It was a science fiction thriller written by Bill Collins and drawn by Jack Kirby. The story is about a Gamma Orb that is stolen from a lab on planet Arclia by an exterminator named Dr. Abraham van Helsing. The orb has the potential to create a massive amount of powerful gamma particles when it is transformed into the Hulk. These highly dangerous gamma particles are what give the Hulk his ability to turn into a monster called the Hulk.
The Incredible Hulk Storyline begins after the events of the World War Hulk, which has left all of the characters damaged and weakened. All but a handful of the original Avengers have either perished or have become evil incarnations due to the radiation exposure they received during the battle. It is up to the Hulk to restore order and protect the Avengers. The series is written by Greg Pak and drawn by Kurt Busiek.
The Incredible Hulk reads much like an avengers book. The series is not in chronological order, and although the events are sometimes set in the same timeline, they are not in the same place in which they occur. This means that you will have to find the story where each event takes place and then continue reading from that location. This is very easy to do because almost every issue of the immortal vol consists of a different time line.
One of the greatest features of the Hulk Graphic Novels is that they are very easily collected. Unlike many other titles, the Hulk stories are collected in true sequential order, which makes them much easier to read. There are also many tie-ins to the Hulk's adventures in the various series including Incredible Hulk: King of the Monsters, Incredible Hulk: Last Stand, and the short-lived Ultimate Hulk series. These tie-ins make reading the entire series much easier, which is why so many people enjoy the incredible Hulk Graphic Novels so much.
One of the most recent issues of the Hulk Graphic Novels that has been released is the absolute Awesome Hulk volume one collection. The first of the Civil War storyline written by Ed Brisson was written as a result of the events of the movie Civil War. The incredible level of detail that goes into making the film franchise so successful is quite impressive and the Civil War series is partially responsible for this level of detail. For this reason, when you collect issues of the highly popular Hulk title, you will get to enjoy some of the best representation of the Civil War storyline that there can be.
The next Hulk comic I want to discuss is the fantastic four-issue limited event miniseries written by Peter David. The miniseries features four separate one-shot Hulk stories that take place in between the events of the two previous blockbuster movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The miniseries is part of the ongoing "Hulk" series and is an excellent read for anyone who just wants to experience some character development and a break from the huge amounts of action that the Hulk brings to the table. It's a fantastic introduction to the world of the Hulk and I highly recommend reading it.
The final Hulk story I have for you today is the incredible " Immortal Volumes" miniseries by writer Steve Englehart and penciler Jack Kirby. This series takes place after the events of the first "Hulk" movie and the end of the Hulk's run in the comics. Though there are only twelve issues in the collected run, these are all standouts and some of the most fantastic set piece pieces that you will ever see in a comic book. Any fan of the Hulk should definitely own a copy of the Immortal Volumes.
