Bruce Banner and his alter ego the Hulk are returning to a solo comic book series relaunch of The Incredible Hulk from Marvel Entertainment. Writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson (Alien) and artist Nic Klein (Thor) are in the driver’s seat for the run which will see Hulk battling monsters in order to survive.
“The Age of Monsters has begun, and the only being who can stop a legion of the world’s most depraved creatures from overtaking the Marvel Universe is the INCREDIBLE HULK,” Marvel said on their website. “Enter this horror-fueled new era of the strongest there is when writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson and artist Nic Klein relaunch INCREDIBLE HULK this June.”
“As an enraged Hulk tries to take control of Bruce Banner’s body permanently, a mysterious immortal turns every monster in the Marvel Universe against Banner in an attempt to free their creator, the primordial Mother of Horrors. With the help of an unlikely new friend, Banner and Hulk must try to stop the world from getting plunged into darkness,” Marvel added.
Marvel plans on teasing the new series in the upcoming Hulk Annual, which will be available on May 17, 2023.

Johnson expressed his excitement for the project, saying in a statement, “The significance that we’re finally bringing back the classic title INCREDIBLE HULK is not lost on me. It’s a tremendous honor, and Nic and I have the clearest possible vision for what we want to do with this story.”
“Nic Klein is a genius, and working with him is pushing me to write a story worthy of his very best,” he continued.
Klein agreed, “Phillip and I put a big serving of monsters, a bit of eldritch gods, a good dash of suspense, and some cool new characters into the cauldron.” He added, “We’re trying to serve up a Hulk the readers haven’t seen before. And if they like it half as much as I’m enjoying drawing it, they’re gonna love it.”
The Incredible Hulk #1 is set to debut at comic book shops on June 21, 2023.
