“I’m having the most fun I’ve had in years right now. I feel like a kid in a candy store – Hulk, KaZar, the Savage Land? It doesn’t get any better than that for me,” says Eaglesham. “A Hulk book means that I get to unabashedly draw musculature, which everyone knows I love. And I get to work with Greg, who is such a good guy, a real team player, and seems as excited about this as I am. These are fun times!”
Mark Paniccia, Marvel Senior Editor, added “I’m really psyched the timing worked out so Dale could draw this Savage Land arc. His stuff has a cool blend of elegance and Kirby-style kinetics. And the detail is absolutely stunning!”
Greg Pak and Dale Eaglesham’s mean, green “Planet Savage” starts in February. Don’t miss it!
