The Jade Giant was just too big to contain with one series, so he’s smashing his way into another!

The Incredible Hulk has no shortage of enemies. But he’s about to run afoul of some new ones. And it’s…the X-Men?!?! The Jade Giant is about to go toe-to-toe with Marvel’s mutants – and only one side is walking away! What could possibly drive these heroes to come to blows? “We wanted big names, superstars and break-out talent to tell their unique stories within continuity,” says Senior Editor Mark Paniccia, in an interview with Marvel.com. “That might be now, or using elements of the past and perhaps even glimpses of the future. It all comes back to the current Hulk mythos while letting the talent cut loose with that Hulk story they’ve been dying to tell.” Prolific comic book legend Alan Davis kicks off the exciting new series in style as a connection between Charles Xavier and Bruce Banner pits the Incredible Hulk against the Uncanny X-Men! But even as hero fights hero – two of the deadliest Hulk foes in history close in from the shadows. And it’ll take both the Hulk and the X-Men united if they’re to put a stop to the Leader and the Abomination. But can they? Don’t miss the start of an all-new epic Hulk tale this June when Alan Davis unleashes the bombastic SAVAGE HULK #1 on comic shops this June!

ALAN DAVIS + HULK = I'M IN!!!!!

And that Alex Ross Cover is just Beautiful!

Anybody remember the Rampaging Hulk magazine in the '70s?

It had those awesome painted Covers but was black and white inside?

That Cassaday cover is awful. It really looks like a page from a coloring book. Maybe he's rushed, idk, but his work has been lackluster since Planetary and Astonishing X-Men.

Comics? I don't read those....i simply bash the movies made about them and claim there far too removed from the source material!

Woo there's some ugly art (not ARs variant). Colors are nice though.
QuestiontheAnswer - 5/29/2014, 12:07 PM
They ran out of new Wolverine titles.
Gary8264 - 5/29/2014, 12:10 PM
Nomis, I remember the Rampaging Hulk mag. That and The Savage Sword Of Conan (also color covers but black and white inside) were some good readin'. Two of three mags I read, you can't forget Heavy Metal.

Dat art tho...
Nomis - 5/29/2014, 12:20 PM
@ Gary8264 - Man You are talking my language! Some of the best comic/fantasy art on paper back then!













Dotanuki - 5/29/2014, 12:20 PM
@Nomis and Gary8264

Don't forget Bizarre Adventures from the late 70's/early 80's. I remember the B&W X-Men story that was drawn in a photo realistic style. Blew my young mind!
Nomis - 5/29/2014, 12:27 PM
Even Warren Publishing had some great art in Vampirella, Panthera and Eerie!





Not to mention MARVEL's Answer to Heavy Metal: EPIC illustrated! Some really really great artwork in those magazines!







^ the Great one: NEAL ADAMS!

That Cassaday cover is atrocious!
Nomis - 5/29/2014, 12:31 PM

Dotanuki - 5/29/2014, 12:31 PM

So where the heck does this take place compared to the current HULK series
Humperdink - 5/29/2014, 1:34 PM
Nice stuff Nomis.

Yeah with Davis in it, I'm down.
RetroFit - 5/29/2014, 1:59 PM
That 2nd cover is terrible. Just freaking terrible!
DestroyallTrolls - 5/29/2014, 2:22 PM
Didn't we see this in World War Hulk vs. X-mEN?
DestroyallTrolls - 5/29/2014, 2:24 PM
Hulk won.
sameoldthing - 5/29/2014, 2:51 PM
Alan Davis is a superb artist. I buy all his stuff.
His anatomy work,facial expressions,use of costumes & clothing,action sequences...all top notch.
Few are his equal. Glad he keep getting comic book work.

marvel72 - 5/29/2014, 4:42 PM

Savage Sword of Conan?? That's what made me realise I'd love comics forever.
I have boxes of them, about the only comic I won't throw out...
loki668 - 5/29/2014, 11:45 PM
@Nomis and the rest

Holy shit! I haven't seen those in YEARS!!! I used to have a ton of those. It's a shame that I lost them, over the years, but those pics brought back a ton of memories!

A crooked World was a damn good read to, and Davis' artwork is superb.
SCURVYDOG619 - 5/30/2014, 9:18 AM
The original Star-Lord story was in several of those Giant-Size magazines....

Bonus: The story was by the team of Claremont, Byrne, and Austin...PRE-X-Men run.
