For The Chop: Incredible Hercules

IncredibleHercules116CoverIncredible Hercules will finish with issue #150.

Originally a stealth comic, taking over the Incredible Hulk’s numbering first as a stunt, then as an ongoing series, the book has been a real breath of fresh air in Marvel’s publishing line, giving the Greek god a higher Marvel profile than he has enjoyed since… well.. ever. Funny, brash, bold and clever, it reminded me in part of what Walt Simonson did to Thor. It’s that good. Sadly sales figures haven’t entirely agreed.

This ending may also tie in with news I’ve heard of a two part funeral storyline starting in March related to the outcome of the current Assault on New Olympus. Which sounds terribly foreboding.

So is this the end? Will the character be relegated to Hulk flashbacks and backups?

Or can we expect a New Hercules series launching in the near future?

Marvel declined to comment. The bastards.
