He Never Left: Peter David Talks Hulk

The following was originally posted on Comic Book Resources:

Something else that would hurt is being pounded by the Hulk and David knows a few things about the character he helped revitalize over a decade ago. Though fans always wanted him back on "Incredible Hulk," no one expected it… not even David. "Kind of stunned, really. What began as a possible 'Ultimate Hulk' series evolved, or mutated if you will, into a Marvel Universe 'Hulk' limited series and then, next thing I knew, it was part of the regular series." In his online blog, David revealed that his story is now set to last five issues instead of the previously announced six and he'll have a single issue story to move some pieces into place. But when will we know if he's on the book permanently? "About ten seconds after I know," answers David.

After an extensive run on "Incredible Hulk," one might think that David had said all he needed to in regards to the mythos, but David credits Marvel Editor-In-Chief Joe Quesada with providing him a new angle. "The basic inspiration came from Joe Quesada who said, 'This is what I'd like to see you do,' and I said, 'Okay, that has potential.' Especially when I married his basic notion of a Monster Island setting with something that had some fundamental classic underpinnings, namely 'The Tempest.' And for having said everything I wanted to about the Hulk, well...things change, the world changes, the character changes, and I change. So hopefully we'll see some of that reflected in the series."
