Donny Cates and Ryan Ottley’s Hulk #9 Brings Hulk Planet Arc This July
Marvel Comics has announced a new arc coming in Hulk #9 that sees Hulk crash-landing a starship on Hulk Planet. The planet populated by Hulk-like creatures under the rule of a mysterious character Monolith is bringing a brand-new story to Donny Cates and Ryan Ottley‘s Hulk series. The action-packed new arc will shine under the power of the gamma star this July.
Marvel‘s description of Hulk Planet reads:
“Thoroughly shaken by his battle with Thor in “Banner of War” and by Titan’s impact on his friends, Bruce Banner decides that his best company is himself – and only himself. As he sets Starship Hulk on a far away course, he begins to reckon with what it means to be healthy – and encounters an alternative to isolation he’d never thought to dream of. Bruce finally found what should be the ultimate paradise but he can’t shake thoughts of the past, or the nagging suspicion that Monolith isn’t being totally honest about what she wants from the Hulk.”
Ottley touched on creating Monolith in the press release, saying:
“Donny Cates is the kind of writer that feeds the artist what they are best at and pushes them to new heights with what they can do. He’s the type of writer that writes as if he has a billion dollar budget. Which is fine with me! I get to stretch my art skills and go all out. He knows my work well over the years and knows what I can do, and he knows what he wants to see me do.
So we work amazingly well together and are having way too much fun slamming this book out and giving it everything we got. I’ve been designing and creating new characters with Donny on this run and issue #9 will be some completely new faces, with the most impactful being Monolith. She is a tall hulkish woman that became leader of this strange world our Hulk showed up on. And I can’t wait to show you all what we’ve made, the smashing shall be insane!”
Hulk #9 will be available at your favorite local comic shop and digitally on July 13th, 2022. Check out the main cover and character design for Monolith below:
