New INDESTRUCTIBLE HULK Team on Thor Guest Appearance


As teased last week, comics legend Walt Simonson is joining Mark Waid on Indestructible Hulk in April with issue #6, and the new creative team talked about their plans on iFanboy.

The promotional art has made it clear that Thor — who Simonson wrote and drew in a seminal '80s run — will appear in the story arc in some form, but exactly what version of the Thunder God hasn't yet been revealed, as it involves some dimension-hopping.

"The teasing question is — which Thor will we be seeing?" Waid told iFanboy. "Banner and his team of assistants build a portal to Jotunheim, land of the Frost Giants, in order to obtain a rare metal there — but in doing so, they may have accomplished something totally unforeseen!"

Simonson discussed his Indestructible Hulk artistic approach with the site, saying that there's an "essential difference" between Thor and Hulk that he's looking to capture.

"The Hulk's figure and face don't require the kind of symmetry that a character like Thor needs in order to be handsome within the context of the comic," Simonson said. "I'm also inspired by the earliest versions of the Hulk by Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko where there seems to me to have been a nod to the Karloff Frankenstein monster of the early Universal horror films. All of which means I can pack a lot into my drawings to try to capture some reflection of the Hulk's wild nature."
