Excited at the appearance of Professor Hulk in AVENGERS: ENDGAME? I know I was. So what better time to get to know everyone’s favorite Green Goliath a little better? Our story begins, as many of these columns seem to, with Marvel Editor-in-Chief Stan Lee. It was 1962 and Stan was looking to follow up the […]

THE INCREDIBLE HULK: A Marvel Cinematic Universe Outlier
I consider myself a huge fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I’ve seen almost all of the movies in theaters since the release of Iron Man 2, some of them multiple times, with the exception of Doctor Strange which I am still sad about missing. What the MCU is doing with their titles, creating standalone […]
“How to Disappear Completely”: Josh Jabcuga nearly falls off the grid with a review of the TV pilot of Marvel’s resident raging green bull, The Incredible Hulk.
“That there, that’s not me. I go where I please. I walk through walls. I float down the Liffey. I’m not here. This isn’t happening. I’m not here. In a little while I’ll be gone. The moment’s already passed. Yeah it’s gone. And I’m not here. This isn’t happening. I’m not here. Strobe lights and […]
Origin Story: Incredible Hulk #312
Hulk month continues! This time, we have an origin story on our hands… sort of. It’s about as originy as you can get for a three-hundred and twelfth issue, and reinvents/overlaps with Hulk’s original origin in the very first issue of his series, which I covered back in December for those interested. This time, we […]
If It’s Broke, Fix It
“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” goes a relatively recent saying (honest, 1977). The obvious other side of the coin is if it is broke. fix it. In an era when every change any comic book publisher makes is somehow apocalyptic in scope, conspiratorial in nature, and incompetant in execution, perhaps we should remind […]
Modern Classics: Planet Hulk
Last time, I kicked off my Hulk Month pieces with 2016’s Hulk #1. That issue has to be in the top five comics I’ve reviewed for Blastoff, so I’m not sure how much better we can get. I’ve enjoyed Hulk comics before, but not Mariko Tamaki’s writing took it to an entirely new level for […]
Jennifer Walters Is HULK
All right, we’re kicking off Hulk month for Blastoff Comics – and rightfully so. Not to put any disrespect on Hulk’s name, I think the last time the general public has been THIS excited about the character was… well, definitely not in my lifetime. And I remember when a two little rashes of Hulk mania […]

MARVEL FIRSTS: The Incredible Hulk #1
Here we go with another installment of Marvel First! This time, we’re checked in with everyone’s favorite monster… Bruce Banner, the Incredible Hulk himself. This series in which the Hulk debuted, The Incredible Hulk, was published in 1962. Like all of the big Marvel #1s that we’ve looked at so far, this one was written […]
Gone Too Soon: Herb Trimpe
So. Memory is a tricky thing. Those names and details that mean so much to you early in life can follow you around silently, laying low in the background of your subconscious, until one day, when you read a post on Twitter or Facebook, suddenly emotions you didn’t know you had come roaring to the […]
