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? A shocking expansion and culmination of the mythos of Sakaar and the heart of the Hulks from PLANET HULK scribe Greg Pak and visionary DEVIL’S REIGN artist Manuel Garcia.
First Comics NewsAfter the original “Planet Hulk” as well as the “World War Hulk”, Greg Pak is back to writing a new Hulk story always a good thing, and with this series kicking off, it’s highly recommended for anyone who loves what Pak did during his long association with the jade giant. The only thing is, I just wish Pak would take another turn at writing the monthly title
Comic WatchWhether you are a fan of Hulk from popular culture or of his comics, I think this is a story that everyone will enjoy. The mystery, drama, and suspense are like none other, and it leaves you wide-eyed for the next issue to learn more about the history of Worldbreaker.
Graphic PolicyOverall, Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker #1 is an excellent debut issue that the shows the vastness of this saga that started with Planet Hulk. The story by Pak is exciting. The art by the creative team is gorgeous. Altogether, a story that will have readers running to grab the second issue.
ComicBook.comCreating a sequel to what many consider to be a "comic book masterpiece" is no easy feat, but Pak, Garcia, and Bachs certainly seem able to do so in Worldbreaker, and I anticipate seeing where the series goes next. If you're a fan of the original "Planet Hulk" story or are a Hulk fan in general, this is a must-buy as the creators have done something that many might believe is impossible in creating a worthy sequel to a timeless Marvel story.
AIPTFans who loved Greg Pak's Planet Hulk and the stories that spilled from that must read Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker #1. It continues the story of Sakaar while exploring the dangers of vilifying a person for political gain. The series hasn't quite yet hooked me as far as why it must be told, but likely it's coming soon.
Un Cómic MásPLOT The story begins 1000 years in the future, with Amadeus Cho's granddaughter asking her grandfather for help to save her brother. She thinks that her grandfather was the famous WORLDBREAKER, Cho reveals to her that he is not that version of the Hulk and that they will have to look for Banner, to solve this new crisis of tyranny that Sakkar is experiencing. Interesting beginning of a story that expands the mythology and promises to unite several generations of Hulk in this universe of Planet Hulk. ART It's full of details with a close resemblance to the original Planet Hulk art but freshening it up with bold new angles.
The Comicbook DispatchReaders, as a Planet Hulk fan, I wanted to like this. And truthfully, Im still going to read it. Why? Well, in my opinion, it takes at least three issues to see where a story is going and whether its entirely worth the time. Sometimes, comics read better in trade. So, if three issues in Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker doesnt clean up the plot, iron out the character motivations, establish depth and context with the main characters, or get this reviewer to feel any connection to the cast whatsoever, then Im totally out on this follow-up story to the classic Planet Hulk. But for now, Im still in on a short leash. And as single issues go, if I was new to Planet Hulk, Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker #1 wouldnt sell me on the series at all.
Weird Science Marvel ComicsPlanet Hulk: Worldbreaker #1 sets up Sakaar for the future and Amadeus Cho’s place in it to set the stage for the story to come. The narrative flow is clunky in spots, and you get the distinct impression Pak is using the setup as an allegory for real-world issues, but the story doesn’t come together enough to make the message clear. Regardless, this first issue is all setup with a weak cliffhanger and a throwaway backstory that reads like an Animal Rights PSA. There’s enough intrigue to get you to wonder what happened to Hulk, but this issue is not a strong start.
Impulse GamerA lot to chew on. Worth a look if you are still up for more Hulk stories with a solid theme and enjoy the writer and artists involved.
