The problem with so many big announcements at Wondercon is that some of the less “And we’re also launching this title Oh My God My head is exploding with awesome!” news gets a little lost in the shuffle. For example: Dale Eaglesham is joining Jeff Parker’s great Hulk book as artist, and he’s bringing Alpha Flight along with him (“Once I found out [Dale] could do it, I didn’t want to miss the chance to connect to the ALPHA FLIGHT stories he just did,” explained Parker).
Between the addition of Alpha Flight and been-there-for-awhile-now Machine Man to the book, Parker and his various artists on the book seem to be quietly turning Hulk into the greatest Marvel Team-Up book I’ve ever wanted to read (Seriously, we’re just the addition of Gargoyle or Hellcat or some other former Defender away from my weird Marvel ideal line-up). Now, if only there was some way to convince Marvel to revive Marvel Two-In-One with Parker in charge. I mean, you know that he’d probably write the greatest Ben Grimm team-up title imaginable, right…?
(Also, chances are – looking at the sales figures – you’re not buying Hulk. You really, really should.)
