Retailers and fans agree, PLANET HULK is a hit. After just one issue, this epic story destined to return Hulk to greatness, is being hailed as an instant classic, a legendary storyline that comic fans will be talking about for years to come! Echoing those feelings, the first issue of this epic – Incredible Hulk #92 – has sold out at Diamond!

This is the biggest Hulk story to come about in years, and it looks like it’s exactly what the fans and retailers wanted! Don’t take our word for it, here’s but a few examples of the universal praise this story is earning:

“PLANET HULK is the first great ‘Hulk Smash’ epic of the 21st Century!” - Carr D'Angelo, Earth-2 Comics

“Customers can't get enough of this tale, which brings mystery, suspense and action back to Banner's alter-ego. It's like a Gamma Bomb to our racks, the way stacks of this comic are being decimated.” - W. Alan, Silver Bullet Comics

“I've been looking forward to this since it was first announced. Apparently, our customers have been, too, as it's already selling well ahead of our projections!” - Chris Powell, GM of Lone Star Comics / mycomicshop.com

“Believe the hype! I admit I was a hard sell myself but our customers have spoken with authority and with only one day on the racks, Planet Hulk has already outsold every other Hulk issue from the last six months. Thanks Marvel.” - Robert Scott, Owner Comickaze Comics Books and More

“The Hulk is finally good again! Fan-HULKING-tastic! This is the new, fresh Hulk story I have been waiting on for years. Must Have!”- Hilary Goldstein, IGN

FANS NOTE, this is one series you don’t want to miss! There are no plans at this time to go back to press on the first issue, and this epic event will not be collected until the last issue has been released, and that is a long time to wait! So, be sure to add this title to your monthly pull list. Don’t be left out!

Retailers, be sure your customers are aware of this epic adventure by handing out the PLANET HULK postcards and see the Diamond site for downloadable shelf-talkers that clearly identify which issues are part of the PLANET HULK story-line. Orders for Incredible Hulk #93 – the second part of PLANET HULK – are due soon. Don’t be caught short! In other words…

“This is gonna be fun!” – Hulk, Incredible Hulk #92

There may still be copies available at the retail level.
