[ENGLISH] Marvel tells us: It’s the comic book phenomenon that has everyone talking and that has sold out again! Marvel is pleased to announce that HULK #5, from the white-hot creative team of Eisner-winner, Emmy-nominated scribe Jeph Loeb (Ultimates 3, upcoming Ultimatum) and superstar artist Ed McGuinness, will return with HULK #5 SECOND PRINTING VARIANT! With a new cover featuring the powerful interior art of McGuinness, and a story that pits Red Hulk against the mighty Thor, no Marvel fan can afford to miss this shocking battle! And just what happened to green Hulk and A-Bomb?

« Five issues. Five sold out. And the second printings too! » said Loeb. « I’ll have to tell McGuinness’ kids to stop buying so many copies! Seriously though, I gotta thank Warren Simons and the entire Thor crew who were so helpful at getting the God of Thunder to guest star in this issue. And rest assured, Thor vs. Red Hulk — the Grudge Match isn’t far behind. All of this builds to next issue when Ol’ Greenskin and the Rulk finally have it out — and I can promise you, only one of them walks away! »

With the buzz around Hulk growing with each issue—leading to sell outs of all the series’ printings—Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on HULK. Timothy Callahan of ComicBookResources.Com gushes, « This comic is pretty much all I ever need from a HULK series, and as long as each issue is this much fun, I’ll be sticking around for a long time. »

After this issue’s stunning last page, just what lies ahead for Red Hulk? There’s only one way to find out—read the smash hit HULK!
