Keep in mind it's listed at $39.99 CDN and shipping from a US seller to Canada is usually $10 or more. And (edit), I can also get it in like 4 days of ordering.
I am sold though.
Do I need to read the Prelude stuff?
The prelude stuff is OK, but nothing special.
Basically all you need to know is that some of the smart guys that were being dicks in the pre-Civil War build up (Reed, Tony, Strange, etc) decided that they should send Hulk off planet because he's too dangerous. Only, instead of asking him what he thought about this, they just tricked him into space under the pretense that they needed Banner to work on a damaged satellite that's leaking gamma radiation or some shit, then they tell Bruce that they are blasting him to an idyllic world that has no life, so he can never bother anyone again. Banner gets pissed, turns into Hulk, and knocks the ship off course, causing it to land on the Planet Hulk planet instead.
That's really it.
Though if you like Hulk, PAD's return to the book just before Pak took over and after Jones is pretty great and includes one fo the best single issue Hulk stories ever.
