Peter Bagge’s The Incorrigible Hulk Finally To See Light of Day

Posted by June 5, 2009 Comment


According to Heidi MacDonald’s The Beat, Marvel Comics are finally publishing the long awaiting “Marvel indie anthology” project, a three-issue mini-series named Strange Tales, an anthology featuring a bevy of indie comics talent working on  Marvel’s biggest name characters, starting in September.

This will include the long-lost Startling Stories: The Incorrigible Hulk by Peter Bagge, originally reported way back when and solicited by Marvel in 2003 as a sequel to his The Megalomaniacal Spider-Man. Begun during a period of experimentation within the company, the project was cancelled when the company became a little more conservative with their publications in the wake of big multi-media prospects. The George Clooney Nick Fury vehicle had already fallen due to the Garth Ennis-penned Fury series. There had been tabloid uproar over the planned revival of Princess Diana as a mutant zombie in X-Statix. The Ang Lee Hulk movie was out. And suddenly a publication featuring the green goliath as a “viagra-taking loon” went out of the window, although the original solicitation remains on Marvel’s website.

This is long awaited, much appreciated news. And at $3.99 for 48 pages, I’m sure that’s a price point we can all support. And prevent us freaking out like this…baggehulk-1

Now.. where is Andi Watson’s completed Love-Fifteen series for Marvel? You know what? I bet that would make a great family film…
