CBR: Let's move on to some of the story details of this new volume of "Hulk." How much story time passes between the end of March's "Indestructible Hulk" #20 and April's "Hulk" #1? Can you talk at all about the dynamic between Banner and the Hulk or their individual physical and mental states when this series begins without tipping your hand?
Waid: Not MUCH I can say without tipping my hand, but let's say that Banner's in a VERY bad way physically as the series opens up a few hours after the end of the previous one -- and you'll be surprised in whose hands his life rests! For the time being, Banner and Hulk will be divided in a way we've never seen before on a long-term basis, and those who are eager to see the Hulk once more be his "own" character will be very pleased, I think.
In terms of the qualities you want to capture with your depiction of the Hulk, are you planning to emphasize the traits that we've seen in this most recent incarnation, especially the facial features?
Bagley:Yeah, there's the dumb, savage Hulk. There's the articulate Hulk. There's the Joe Fixit type, and this is a real specific iteration face-wise. From the way I'm reading things he's sort of leashed to a certain degree, but he's enough aware of what's going on that he's very close to getting out of control. Basically he's a huge guy on steroids in the room and you don't know when something's explosive going to happen.
What types of stories will we see in this new volume of "Hulk?" Will we still get a mix of genres or are you interested in telling a specific type of long form story?
Waid: More action. More reason for Hulk to carry more of the issue. But an overarching mystery that goes back to issue #2 or thereabouts, as new hints are revealed. Banner's been up to something -- and sharp-eyed readers have been collecting clues.
