Loeb, Sale's Hulk: Gray Set For October Debut
By Brian Jacks


During last year's San Diego Comic-Con International, the fan-favorite and award-winning creative team of DAREDEVIL: YELLOW & SPIDER-MAN: BLUE - writer Jeph Loeb and artist Tim Sale - announced their next Marvel collaboration would be HULK: GRAY, the third title in their 'Marvel Spectrum' series of MARVEL KNIGHTS limited series.

With the 2003 San Diego Comic-con kicking off this week, its as good as time as any to announce the six-issue mini will make its long-awaited debut in October, 2003 with the release of its first two issues.

As in the best-selling YELLOW & BLUE series, HULK: GRAY will use a modern-day framework to expand upon - and reveal previously unseen moments from - a pivotal point in the HULK's past -specifically the days immediately following Bruce Banner's first transformation. According to Jeph Loeb, the story "explores how the monster unleashes Bruce's inhibitions, but also ruins his life!"

"One approach to the Hulk is to examine how he differs from his alter ego," explained Loeb an in interview with Newsarama.com last year. "The Hulk always was far more complex than just an 'id' on the loose. He had a distinct personality from Banner and hated Banner. He was, and to this day in some form still is, incredibly twisted. He saw Banner as his prison guard who kept him in a dark place. And Banner - at the beginning - really couldn't remember all of the things that the Hulk did. Stan and Jack had created something that was more than just Jekyll & Hyde and the duality of human nature. The Hulk had an agenda, as foggy as it could be, and that's where we begin. What did the Hulk want and why?"

And also like the previous series, the story is told through Tim Sale's stunning art, 7-pages of which will be previewed in full-color in next month's WIZARD MAGAZINE #144.
