Love Alex Ross' cover but no plans to pick this up. I wish he'd do an on-going series!

just when you think you've seen all of Ross's badassery, he carries on painting

Ross really doesn't disappoint, his artwork is incredible

Might have to check this out, but already have way too many titles on the go :P

Damn that's cool!

Ross is the man. I haven't been following Hulks, weren't Bruce and Hulk seperated?
blackandyellow - 5/5/2014, 2:11 PM
This is his best cover yet.

Incredible. Ross and Granov are the Kings of Marvel.

Ross is off the chain with these cover arts. I need posters of these. they are very reminiscent of the old art from the 60's and 70's
SuperiorMrGod - 5/5/2014, 2:52 PM
Ross is on point.

How many Hulk titles are out?

Does he jump from being savage to regular to Bruce Banner?

Ross changed the way i viewed art forever. Hoping to meet him at a comic con one day.
ThePowerCosmic - 5/5/2014, 3:17 PM
Awesome how he sort of tied in Kirby's original design. Ross is awesome.

In the days of Peter David run, Marvel decided to produce two books: the incredible hulk and the savage hulk. PAD, protested that the comicbook would not work because his book (incredible hulk) was an evolved Bruce Banner and that the old Hulk without a brain no longer worked. Marvel went ahead anyway, after a short run the savage title was cancelled.

Here we go again, from Thor and Loki having a joint sister, to Logan dying, to Spiderman and scarlet spiderman storylines, this again is a poorly conceived idea.

Alan Davis is a great artist, some of his work on the X men was not bad but sadly, a savage Hulk will no longer work because it lacks character dimensions of the Hulk. Peter David, reconfigured the Hulk hence why his run was so long and one of the few writers who gave the Hulk a great dimension from the Ghost of the past and ghost of the future storylines, plus other great threads into the character (Multiple Personality Disorder)etc.

The new movie should be called the Savage Hulk.
earzmundo - 5/5/2014, 3:57 PM
his guardians today was better
staypuffed - 5/5/2014, 4:01 PM
I like Alex Ross but the only one of these 75th Anniversary covers that has excited me is his Amazing Spider-Man variant. This is good, but not mind-blowing like much of his work.
Hulk2008 - 5/5/2014, 4:06 PM
Great art, but isn't this the Savage Hulk???

Hulk2008 - 5/5/2014, 4:07 PM
@Praetorian

Hulk sequel should be called "The Indestructible Hulk"

much more catchy
TheRealRemyLebeau - 5/5/2014, 4:41 PM
I like it but I read the description and I'm slightly confused. Is this like The amazing spiderman and X-force where marvel is adding to past history? Either way it'll be interesting where they go with this.
thewolfx - 5/5/2014, 6:09 PM
If anyone finds a person who doesnt atleast like alex ross art



Burn them to death.. as they are some sort of ghoul -_-
Shaq - 5/5/2014, 7:12 PM
Alex Ross is a beast!

@thewolfx I don't remember names, but I remember some people here saying they don't like Ross' art.
Shadowmaster35 - 5/5/2014, 9:24 PM
Already said it on the Guardians cover and I'll say it again. GREATEST. ARTIST. EVER!
niknik - 5/5/2014, 9:46 PM
Too bad the corporate suits that now run the comic book biz are so tight fisted with the purse strings that they no longer spend the coin to put quality artists like Ross on a mini series or even graphic novel any longer. Those days are gone. All you get is the occasional cover art. Gotta squeeze every last nickel of profit out of the industry.

btw, this reminds me of a black and white magazine sized book put out in the early 80's titled Rampaging Hulk. Like Savage Tales. It too had great painted covers by well known artist like Earl Norem and Joe Jusko. Even Starlin painted a cover.

I bet the inside art is as bad as pretty much ALL Marvel's comic book art these days.
