Duggan will join Mark Bagley starting with Hulk #5, while Waid will go on a killing spree on the West Coast.
Deadpool and Nova writer Gerry Duggan will be taking over Hulk from Mark Waid in August's Hulk #5, according to an interview with Newsarama. Duggan is planning an eight issue story to kick off his run that will feature a long list of guest stars:
The events of Original Sin with Hulk versus Iron Man and the murder mystery of ‘who shot Banner?’ will leave both Hulk and Bruce very changed. In Hulk #5 I’m starting a storyline called ‘The Omega Hulk,’ which will see a great bit of action between the Hulk and everyone who shares his name. I like to describe it as the ‘Armor Wars’ for gamma-irradiated people in the Marvel Universe.
It’s going to run eight to ten issues, and at the end of it there will be a new status quo for many of the characters.
There is no official statement on why Waid has left the book at this time, but sources tell us he's had enough of people making superhero products he doesn't like, has watched the Death Wish movies hundreds of times, shaved his hair into a mohawk like Robert DeNiro in Taxi Driver, and is planning on going to Burbank, CA to mete out vigilante justice on enemies such as Future's End writer Dan Jurgens and Man of Steel director Zack Snyder.
The Outhouse has obtained video footage of Waid stalking the streets of Burbank, looking for his prey:
Waid said he will also enjoy being closer to his little buddy Stephen Wacker, who moved to California to take up a position in Marvel's animation department earlier this year. Stay tuned to The Outhouse and your local police blotter for details.
