Overview

A whole new world of hurt! Betrayed by Earth's heroes and exiled into outer space, the man-monster Hulk has landed on the distant planet Sakaar, ruled by the tyrannical Red King. Sold into slavery, Hulk becomes the Green Scar, the planet's mightiest gladiator - but his new masters get more than they bargained for when he forges a bond of brotherhood with his fellow fighters: crafty insectoid Miek, the horrific Brood, wise rock-man Korg, shadow warrior Hiroim, noble-born rebel Elloe and her loyal guardsman Skee. Together, these gladiators start a revolution that could change their entire world - or destroy it!

This book has some of the best Hulk Comics I have read in a long time. The story introduces a lot of new characters that will most likely play a part in World War Hulk. The Silver Surfer also makes an appearance at one point in the story. Those who know Hulk's history well know that he has had more then his share of tough breaks but, his situation on this alien planet of Saacar has to take the cake. The story in this book has Hulk at his best, doing what he does best, smashing everybody and everything in his path. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves The Big Green Giant.

This is the first graphic novel I have read in five years and it blew me away. I love The Hulk and have all of hus movies and have rad most of his comics since the character was created. The Hulk is launched to another planet by his so called friends on Earth and lands on a forbidden and desolate world where only the strongest will survive. Hulk fights in the arenas and becomes an ally to a motley group of fellow warriors. He lleads his group from slavery to being rulers of the entire world. Hulk meets and marries his queen and all seems just right for him until the shup he was sent to the world on explodes and kills Hulk's queen and unborn child. The art was spectacular and storyline was continouus and clearly written. This was the best story I have read from Marvel in a long time.

I haven't followed any storylines in the Marvel Universe for many years and on a whim picked this collection up. I'm very pleased that I did. Some of the more prominent heroes in the Marvel canon decide to remove the Hulk from Earth before his anger can hurt anyone. They trick him onto a ship and rocket him into space. The ship gets sucked into a portal and the Hulk finds himself enslaved and weakened. He becomes a messiah figure to the downtrodden much to his chagrin. The Hulk may find happiness, love, and companionship or he might become a Worldbreaker. It's well worth the money or trip to the library to find out.

I tend to dislike universe-wide crossover events, which is the reason that I'd been avoiding Planet Hulk for a while now. But I decided to take the plunge after reading a "What If" comic involving Planet Hulk, and I was glad that I did.The Illuminati, tiring of the menace that the Hulk presents to the world and seeing the opportunity to be rid of him, send him off to a planet that is uninhabited by intelligent life. Unfortunately, the Hulk's ship veers off course, and he lands on a world that is much like ancient Rome. Hulk, enslaved by the cruel emperor, is forced to battle for his freedom like a gladiator, and he makes friends along the way.I've heard that the plot is very similar to the movie The Gladiator. I've never seen the movie, so I can't comment about that, but I can see some similarities between this story and Spartacus' revolt. The art is good, and I like the cast of secondary characters, especially Miek and No-Name.***there are spoilers below this***That said, I thought that the story ended very abruptly. Of course, we knew that Hulk would not have a happy ending; that seems to be impossible for any comic book character, especially one such as the Hulk. He finds a woman who accepts him as the Hulk, even his "puny Banner" side, and she has to die. Of course.But what I don't understand is WHY his wife died. She's able to turn herself into stone; she's survived explosions and fires and being hurled into the air by the Hulk without so much as a scratch, but when it was convenient (or, perhaps, necessary) for her to die, she died in an explosion. It's never explained why she was vulnerable to that explosion when she had survived others. Was the intensity greater? I don't get it.***end of spoilers***It's a good story for the most part, but it ultimately left me unsatisfied.

I read World War Hulk first, but had been following the hype for Planet Hulk in the year of its publication. I bit the bullet and coughed up the 35 bucks (35 dollars for a paperback comic?!).The artwork is really wonderful - and the story is entertaining. Just about everything about the story is derivative and I've seen it dozens of times before - every character, the main and side plots - but still it was a good read (probably because of it, rather than despite it - something of a tribute, while forwarding the difficult-to-expand-upon character of The Hulk). Not a 35 dollar read, mind you, but a good read.Highlights for me were the fast moving detailed scenes (Flash Gordon meets Gladiator), and The Spike (not quite zombies, or the techno-organic virus of Warlock fame).Borrow it and give it a read!

An epic science-fiction adventure that truly belongs in the pantheon of all-time great fantasy literature, terrifically spinning all of the classic elements of the genre (love, adventure, destiny, faith, war) into a superb read. I never even really liked the Hulk as a character until I encountered this magnificent work of art - one of the best graphic novels of all time as well.

The Illuminati's transport for the Hulk runs into the pilot episode of LOST and he is sent crashing into a mysterious warrior planet. He is weakened from his travel and forced to do battle in Gladitor games...well you really don't need to force Hulk to fight. The story is a mix of Gladitor & Ten Commandments with the Hulk as the savior. Excellent art.

Best comic arc I've read. Engaging and made me emotionally invested. Hulk was portrayed in a way that showcased his intelligence and tragic kindness. Must read.

Before this story, Hulk at his best was a two dimensional character. I was never a fan, but I can't make it through this story with out being reduced to tears. Best. Hulk. Story. Ever.
