THE IMMORTAL HULK #1-49 (Al Ewing / Joe Bennett)

New York, NY— July 14, 2021 — The end of one of the most critically-acclaimed comic runs in recent history will arrive this October. Writer Al Ewing and artist Joe Bennett will close out their horror-infused work on Bruce Banner in IMMORTAL HULK #50, a special giant-sized issue that will present the groundbreaking conclusion to years of buildup, mystery, and Gamma-powered additions to the Hulk mythology. Throughout the past 49 issues, the all-star creative team has taken the iconic Marvel hero to places no creator has dared to go—through the Green Door and beyond! Now, they bid farewell to the Green Goliath, having redefined the character with a genre-bending exploration of both his powerful alter-ego and his humanity.

The final issue will find the Hulk down in the Below-Place as he searches among the ghosts of the past for the answers to all his questions. The dramatic ending will not only shed light on what’s next for Hulk but also reveal the future of the One Below All, the Green Door, the Leader, Jackie McGee, Joe Fixit and more!

“IMMORTAL HULK #50 is the climax of everything we’ve done in this book, an 80-page crescendo that spans over a century and contains the answers to some of the biggest questions of the run,” Ewing promises. “This is how it all ends – and we think it’ll be worth the wait.”

Check out Alex Ross’ incredible wraparound cover below and be there for the end to this historic run when IMMORTAL HULK #50 hits stands on October 13th!

Je ne vais pas revenir sur la maestria d’Al Ewing et Joe Bennett, qui continuent de signer un run formidable, aux qualités énormes, riches et variées.
J’aimerais juste signaler ici les bijoux de caractérisation et de dialogue dans cet épisode de « pause », avant la bataille finale, avec quelques bons échanges de She-Hulk mais surtout, surtout un travail formidable sur Betty et Joe Fixit, avec l’ombre de Bruce.
Betty est magnifiquement travaillée ici, avec une vision de sa relation avec Bruce qui est terrible et touchante. Joe Fixit est formidable également, et je ne sais pas si c’est nouveau, mais j’aime l’idée que la personnalité Joe vienne d’un film de gangster « à l’ancienne » que le petit Bruce a vu, après avoir été frappé par son père. Ewing dit que l’enfant s’est alors dit que ces gangsters badass, grandes gueules, macho, bagarreurs, c’est « ça » être un homme, en creux un homme capable de résister à son père.
L’explication est fine, inventive, réussie et touchante. Un bon résumé de ce run d’anthologie.

• This is the gate into the city of suffering. To the hurt that never ends. This gate is for the lost.
• The gate is a thing of divine power - a thing of forever. But even for the strongest one there is, it bears the warning:
Rated T+





Al Ewing: "If all goes well, today I’m going to be writing the very last plot pages of IMMORTAL HULK.

After that, I think I’m going to get drunk.

I found this very early in the process. If the book has a theme song, this is it."
