This May, the road to war begins in World War Hulk Prologue: World Breaker, as the Hulk begins the long journey to revenge. Written by classic Hulk scribe Peter David and featuring the art of Al Rio, Lee Weeks & Sean Phillips, World War Hulk Prologue: World Breaker brings you up to speed on the Hulk's recent journey and provides the perfect jumping-on point for readers new and old, who will get a rare glimpse into the psyche of the jade giant.

Months ago, the Illuminati sent Hulk into space, hoping the monster would find peace on another world, leading to the now classic Planet Hulk storyline. Hulk landed on Sakaar, and now through a series of tragic events, the Hulk is back…and he isn't just going to smash—he's going to destroy!

In the wake of Civil War, the MU is already in enough chaos as it is, but it's one boy named Amadeus Cho whose actions may take things to the next level. In Hulk #106, Cho prepares for the Hulk's arrival by gathering a group of super heroes to side with the Hulk in the coming war. Who will join with the Hulk and who will fight him?

Stephen Gerding, of Kung Fu Rodeo, couldn't stop raving about Planet Hulk, the best selling epic tale of which every issue sold out and which leads into World War Hulk. "We've been treated to a Hulk-as-Conan storyline that writer Greg Pak has made into the most interesting time in the Jade Giant's life since Peter David left the book," said Gerding. "Combine the writing with stronger than I'd expected art and amazing covers from Ladronn ... and you have the biggest surprise from Marvel in years."

With the Planet Hulk HC collection arriving in June to coincide with World War Hulk roaring into the summer, Marvel urges retailers to check their orders for World War Hulk, as the rave reviews for Planet Hulk continue to roll in. Fans, don't miss your first chance to join the excitement in the pages of World War Hulk Prologue: World Breaker and Hulk #106.

Note: the page count on World War Hulk Prologue: World Breaker has increased from 48 to 64 pages and will now feature an extensive sneak-peak at the World War Hulk event at no extra cost!
