The son of the Incredible Hulk continues to smash in his new ongoing series--Skaar: Son of Hulk! Grab your spears and battle axes and prepare for more action in Skaar: Son of Hulk #2! In the first issue, on a war torn alien planet, SKAAR, the son of the Hulk was born - raised by monsters and destined to conquer! After last issue's cliffhanger, critically acclaimed writer Greg Pak (Incredible Hulk, Incredible Hercules, World War Hulk), pits a rampaging Skaar against his first formidable foe, AXEMAN BONE! With visually stellar interiors from fan-favorite artist, Ron Garney (Wolverine, The Amazing Spider-Man), the Jade Giant's barbaric son, Skaar, embarks on an action packed, legendary journey! Plus, a special extra story featuring the secret history of Sakaar, with art by superstar Butch Guice (Ultimate Origins)!

Benjamin Birdie of ComicBookResources.com raves, "Fans of 'Planet Hulk' will undoubtedly be thrilled to return. Marvel has done a great job of revitalizing the cosmic corners of its universe... there are some great artistic moments."

Jim Gibbons of WizardUniverse.com said, "I could rave on and on about how satisfying and enjoyable this issue was as a die-hard Pak/Hulk fan, and wouldn't even come close to the joy Hulk fans and new readers alike are going to get from this book. It's a blast and I couldn't recommend it more highly! Seriously: check it out!"

After the quick sell out of the first issue, Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Skaar: Son of Hulk as the series continues to generate buzz as fans crave their gamma-charged fix.
