Comic News:
Marvel Collects The Hulk
By Brian Jacks


With the success of the Marvel Must Haves collecting consecutive issues of popular ongoing series, Marvel has announced that the next compilation will be MARVEL MUST HAVES: INCREDIBLE HULK #50-52, the first volume in a newly-expanded MUST HAVES publishing initiative.

This 96-page volume collects the first three sold-out issues (including the special extra-sized INCREDIBLE HULK #50) of the current five-part story arc pitting the Hulk against his long-time foe the Abomination, by writer Bruce Jones and penciler Mike Deodato.

Hitting store shelves May 7th with a cover price of $3.99, it arrives just a week before the final chapter in the storyline - INCREDIBLE HULK #54 - on-sale May 14th.

This is the latest in a slew of Must Haves releases.

MARVEL MUST HAVES: INCREDIBLE HULK #34-36 collects the first three-issues of Bruce Jones' debut six-part Incredible Hulk story arc, "Return of the Monster", illustrated by John Romita Jr. and Tom Palmer.

Other new MUST HAVES on-sale in July 2003 include:

ULTIMATES #1-3 - by Mark Millar & Bryan Hitch.
ULTIMATE X-MEN #1-3 - by Mark Millar & Adam Kubert.
ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #1-3 - by Brian Michael Bendis & Mark Bagley.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #30-32 - J. Michael Straczynski & John Romita Jr.'s first 3 issues.
NEW X-MEN #114-116 - Grant Morrison & Frank Quitely's first 3 issues.

Each sporting a cover price of $3.99, all the new MUST HAVES reflect a savings of at least $2.76 off the original cover prices of these sold-out comics, with collections like MARVEL MUST HAVES: INCREDIBLE HULK #50-52 (individual combined cover price of $8.00).

"MARVEL MUST HAVES were originally conceived as a quick response to getting sold-out comics into readers hands as soon as possible," explained Marvel President & COO Bill Jemas. "But what we didn't expect and have been pleasantly surprised by are their evergreen nature and how consistently they've been ordered.

"Retailers are clearly telling us there is a steady demand for a low-priced option to help introduce new readers to our best and most popular titles, and to serve as 'jumping-on' points for existing readers, spurring sales of the monthly series and trade paperbacks. This new group of MARVEL MUST HAVES is being offered to help our retail partners meet that demand and cultivate regular new readers."
