5 Mins w/ Marvel's Dec Solicits

ULTMATE WOLVERINE VS. HULK #1 (OF 6)
Written by DAMON LINDELOF
Pencils & Cover by LEINIL FRANCIS YU
Damon Lindelof, co-creator of the hit TV series Lost teams with superstar artist Leinil Francis Yu to bring their storytelling magic to a tale that will rock the Ultimate Universe! Dr. Bruce Banner has been presumed dead since his execution, following his murderous rampage through Manhattan as the Hulk. But when reports start cropping up of an unidentified creature appearing around the globe, Nick Fury 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. Fury turns to the only man he can trust: Wolverine. And he's only too glad to take care of Banner-by any means necessary.
32 PGS./T+ SUGGESTED FOR TEENS AND UP ...$2.99

Lu is quickly becoming one of my favorites; plus you've got the classic match-up Hulk v. Wolverine AND it's written by the dude who writes one of my favorite all-time TV dramas: Lost. I'm anticipating this for sure.

WHAT IF: THOR
Written by ROBERT KIRKMAN
Pencils & Cover by MICHAEL OEMING
In the tradition of epic mythology, we peer into a universe where the unthinkable has happened: THOR has been transformed into the Herald of GALACTUS. How can Earth survive with such a powerful harbinger of doom at its doorstep? Is there anyone who can stop him or will Earth be left a scorched and barren wasteland like so many other thriving planets before it?
32 PGS./T+ SUGGESTED FOR TEENS AND UP ...$2.99

Man oh man. RK and Oeming AND Thor? I'm in something huge.

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
