Marvel Announces the Reign of SKAAR: KING OF THE SAVAGE LAND

SKAAR: KING OF THE SAVAGE LAND in April

 

The Son of Hulk gets a change of venue in Skaar: King Of The Savage Land, a five-issue miniseries starting in April, originally announced Monday on Marvel.com.

As the title suggests, Skaar will be challenging Ka-Zar, long-time "Lord of the Savage Land," for dominion over Marvel's prehistoric, dinosaur-filled land hidden in Antarctica. The series is written by Rob Williams, whose recent Marvel work includes Deadpool Team-Up and Shadowland: Ghost Rider, with art by Brian Ching, who has Hulk-illustrating experience from recent issues of Incredible Hulks.

The comic starts in April, with two issues — both priced at $2.99 — shipping that month. Skaar was created by writer Greg Pak and artist John Romita, Jr., having first appeared in 2007's World War Hulk #5.

Marvel's full press release follows:

 

The Son of Hulk will stake his claim in Skaar: King Of The Savage Land, the new limited series from writer Rob Williams, Brian Ching, and more! Ka-Zar has ruled the Savage Land for years, but Skaar is coming to challenge him for the throne and he’s not the only one either. Prepare for a showdown of epic proportions in the unforgiving jungle known as the Savage Land.

“The Savage Land is a time capsule containing every lost wonder in history, and Skaar is going to crack it wide open! Forgotten gods, dinosaurs, robots, and more than one lost Marvel hero rediscovered,” says Marvel Editor John Denning. “It’s gonna be an inter-tribal war that will literally reshape the landscape of the Marvel U!”

If Skaar wants to be king, he’ll have to contend with the most savage of creatures, the most barbaric of foes, and of course, the king of the Savage Land himself—Ka-Zar in Skaar: King Of The Savage Land! And if that’s not enough, expect two issues of Skaar: King Of The Savage Land in one month for twice the gamma-irradiated savagery! With covers by Ed McGuinness and Michael Komarck, these issues cannot be missed!
