A thousand years from now on the planet Sakaar, a young woman with green skin searches for the legendary Green Scar to help save her brother from a group of apocalyptic cultists.

Press Release

Marvel Comics has announced Greg Pak is returning to the Plane Hulk storyline with artist Manuel Garcia this November. Appropriately titled Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker, the five-issue limited series will take place a thousand years into the future to expand on the mythos of Sakaar.

If you haven’t read Planet Hulk, step to it and rectify the problem by buying the omnibus asap. Hell, there’s even a prose novel adapting the comic series.

“Working on Planet Hulk remains one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had in storytelling,” Pak said. “So it was a huge thrill to get the call from editor Mark Paniccia inviting me to dive back in. What makes this story feel so special is that we’re going back to Sakaar a thousand years in the future.”

So what’s Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker about?

A thousand years from now on the planet Sakaar, a young woman with green skin searches for the legendary Green Scar to help save her brother from a group of apocalyptic cultists. But which Hulk will she find? And after all these years, is he truly the Sakaarson, who will save us all — or the Worldbreaker, who will destroy us?

Pak added, “We’re exploring big emotional stories that pay off the huge themes of the Hulk and the Green Scar that I’ve built over many years through all my Hulk stories. In a time of change and crisis, what do we do with the power we have, and how do we handle the terrifying repercussions? A thousand years from now, who knows where those questions will take us?”
