L’auteur derrière la saga originale Planet Hulk, le scénariste Greg Pak (Action Comics), s’occupe d’écrire l’origine du Domaine Greenland à travers les courtes histoires qui sont proposées en supplément de la nouvelle histoire imaginée par Sam Humphries et Marc Laming sous Secret Wars. Pak retrouve pour l’occasion le dessinateur Takeshi Miyazawa, co-créateur de Amadeus Sho.
Ci-dessous, quelques pages de Planet Hulk #2 suivies des recherches de l’artiste Marc Laming:
[quote=“Marc Panicia”]Way back when we got all this stuff on the board I had an itch to reach out to Greg to contribute to it somehow – but I needed to see where this was going to take us first. After Sam’s outline came in I sent it over to Greg and asked him to read it. I wanted to do an origin of the domain of Greenland and told him what Sam’s original idea was for the backstory – that this territory was from a world where the Gamma Bomb went off over a populated area. Maybe it was because Sam had mentioned Arizona at one point (and I was born there) that I was so determined to tell this tale. Arizona never gets any comic book love. Greg and I chatted a bit and thought it would be fun to include Amadeus Cho because he, too, is from Arizona.
But who to draw? Why not Takeshi Miyazawa since he was the first person to draw Amadeus? Well, that was the hardest part because he had a tight deadline on “Ms. Marvel” and I didn’t want to mess that schedule up (or tick off “Ms. Marvel” editor Sana Amanat). But Tak came through like a pro. He finished up Sana’s assignment and jumped onto our tight deadline and it all came together with Rachelle Rosenberg’s beautiful colors, Travis Lanham’s great typography and a great faux cover of “Amazing Science” #15 featuring “The Smartest Heroes of Earth.” To that wonderful little touch I owe much thanks to Leonard Kirk, Chris Eliopoulos and Tamra Bonvillain for turning an editor’s last second idea around in a snap.
So it was fantastic to not only have a great main story but to have the opportunity to work with Greg and Tak again. Sometimes everything falls into place just beautifully.[/quote]
