Hulk Continues To Sell Out

No, the Jade Giant isn’t compromising his creative integrity. It’s the other kind of sell out – the good kind. Tying into our first issue of course, with our Hulk/Rulk cover feature, “Marvel is pleased to announce that Hulk #9 has sold out at Diamond, shattering the previous Hulk sell out record set by…Hulk #8! That’s right True Believers, every issue and every printing of the gamma charged series by Eisner-winning, Emmy-winning, chart-topping, superstar scribe Jeph Loeb has sold out at Diamond and the series shows no signs of slowing down. Who is the Red Hulk, AKA Rulk? What is his-or her-connection to the green Hulk? One thing’s for sure-the hottest new series of 2008 is going to get even hotter in 2009!

“This has been the greatest ride ever,” said Loeb. “Having Arthur Adams and Frank Cho join us for those three issues (and for some surprises to come!) was not only a great pleasure, but it kept the HULK right on top! Be sure to come back next issue when Ed ‘Ed’ McGuinness returns!”

Now, prepare for a titanic tussle that only the acclaimed team of Loeb and superstar artist Ed McGuinness could bring you-Hulk & The Defenders (NAMOR! SILVER SURFER! DOC STRANGE!) versus Rulk & The Offenders (TIGER SHARK! TERRAX! BARON MORDO!) in Hulk #10!” The two alternate covers for Hulk #10 are below, by penciller Ed McGuiness. The issue goes on sale on February 25.
