Official Press Release
The “Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk” 6-issue miniseries is set to hit stands December 21, but excitement about the project is reaching red-hot intensity, due to the incredible popularity of the characters and creators involved! Damon Lindelof, co-creator and executive producer of the hit television series Lost, is teamed with superstar Marvel exclusive artist Leinil Yu to bring readers what promises to be one of the most intense meetings of any two characters in Marvel’s history. Recently Damon stopped by to talk to members of the web press and fans alike about the series, working in comics, and working on Lost. Don’t worry if you weren’t a part of that call, because now you can be! Marvel is pleased to announce the unveiling of our very own podcasts! First up, the call with Damon!
Podcasting at Marvel.com enables fans to be a proverbial fly on the wall as they listen to creators talk about all of the aspects of what goes into making a comic book. In the near future, there will be many more uses for this innovative technology that is gaining popularity every day on the web. In joining the podcast revolution, Marvel hopes to bring fans closer to their favorite creators, update fans on exciting upcoming projects, and release news that podcast listeners will literally be the first to hear! We thought the best project and special guest to unveil this new development at Marvel.com would be Damon Lindelof, and he was thrilled to be a part of it.
“Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk” marks Lindelof’s first comic book writing effort. He will bring his storytelling magic to Marvel’s Ultimate Universe in a high-octane tale that echoes the classic first appearance of Wolverine (from Incredible Hulk #181). Dr. Bruce Banner (a.k.a. the Hulk) has been presumed dead since his execution following a murderous rampage through Manhattan. But when reports start cropping up of an unidentified creature appearing around the globe, General Nick Fury – head of America’s premiere intelligence organization, S.H.I.E.L.D – begins to get worried. Not because Banner can turn from man to unstoppable monster in seconds, but because Banner’s existence is the one secret that can bring down Fury. So Fury turns to the only man he can trust: the mysterious man known as Logan, a.k.a. Wolverine of the X-Men, to take care of Banner – by any means necessary.
