Hulk Meets Thor In New Crossover

banner of war marvelDonny Cates is currently taking two of Marvel’s most iconic characters on transformative journeys in the pages of HULK and THOR. And this April, the acclaimed writer will smash both sagas together in an all-new epic: HULK VS. THOR: BANNER OF WAR.

Celebrating the two heroes’ 60th anniversaries, this five-part crossover will kick off in HULK VS. THOR: BANNER OF WAR ALPHA #1 before exploding in the pages of both Hulk and Thor’s hit solo titles throughout May and June. Tackling ongoing mysteries from both series and featuring artwork by rising star Martin Coccolo and covers by legendary artist Gary Frank, the story promises to deliver Thor and Hulk’s most glorious battle yet and the showdown will have a shocking impact on both characters’ futures.

In the aftermath of the opening arc of HULK and the “God of Hammers” arc currently unfolding in THOR, both Bruce Banner and Thor Odinson have both undergone massive changes, but one thing remains constant — their heated rivalry! When mysterious circumstances bring them into conflict once more, will the God of Thunder be able to triumph against a Bruce Banner who can now control his rage?

“Well, I was a little surprised that Marvel approached me to write this, if I’m being honest. I’m mostly known for writing very small, very quiet, intimate comics, so I had to—ha!! Sorry. Couldn’t keep that up. Yeah, this is gonna be bonkers as hell, guys,” Cates said. “We’re going to break EVERYTHING! Happy birthday, Hulk and Thor! Hope you enjoy MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF VIOLENCE!”

“Where do I even start? I get to celebrate Hulk and Thor’s 60th anniversaries, which is already amazing and a dream come true, but I get to do it with an insane script by the great Donny Cates AND the support of an incredible group of editors? That’s just ridiculous!” Coccolo said. “I’m absolutely honored by this opportunity and I’ve been giving it my 100%. Hopefully readers will agree. I can only say to all the fans out there to strap yourselves ’cause this is going to be a wild ride!” Be there for the fight that will smash the Marvel Universe at its core when HULK VS. THOR: BANNER OF WAR ALPHA #1 arrives on April 27! For more information, visit Marvel.com.

Y: THE LAST MAN Original Soundtrack Released

Y The Last Man Original Score SoundtrackY: The Last Man Original Score Soundtrack featuring score composed and produced by Herdís Stefánsdóttir is available today from Hollywood Records. The drama series, based on DC Comic’s acclaimed series of the same name, debuted on FX on Hulu September 13. New episodes stream Mondays.

I wanted the voice to be the foundation of the sonic world and build around that. The score is heavily vocal and choral based but goes into a modular electronic zone and the Wild West. I drew inspiration from western cinema music to create a sound for the lawless world fusing it with the choral sound making it something of its own.”
