Continuing Mark Waid’s seeming obsession with the in- prefix, Marvel’s third of what will presumably be five teasers revealing their upcoming ‘Marvel NOW!’ books has been revealed. He’ll be teaming up this November with artist Leinil Francis Yu, for what is likely to be a new Incredible Hulk relaunch. The news comes from CBR, which means we have to put up with that little obnoxious ‘CBR exclusive!’ tag which we all hate so well.

Hulk only relaunched itself recently, with Jason Aaron trying out a new run which saw Banner as the monster and Hulk as the desperate hero. Which, well, that’s had mixed reviews. Next time’s the charm?

No sign of She-Hulk Jennifer Walters yet, but rest assured that I’ll leap onto the internet, keyboard blazing, as soon as there is even the barest indication that she might show up somewhere.
