The Maestro, a kind of Old Man Hulk from an alternate timeline, was a hit in the current limited series Maestro, and writer Peter David is continuing his adventures in January with MAESTRO: WAR AND PAX with art by Javier Pina and cover by Dale Keown, Marvel just told us all.
Maestro revealed the origins of this Pappy Hulk, and the new miniseries will reveal even more secrets behind his landmark story Future Imperfect.
The man once known as the Hulk now answers only to THE MAESTRO! After deposing Dystopia’s ancient ruler, the Maestro will now set his sights even higher. With unbridled ambitions, Maestro decides it’s time for the entire planet Earth to recognize him as their one true god! But the Maestro will soon find out that he isn’t the only immortal left…and if he wants to truly dominate the planet, he’ll have to face the most powerful beings in creation!
“I am thrilled that, twenty years after I created him, the Maestro still intrigues people so much that the first series garnered the sort of success that demanded a follow-up,” David said. “As long as folks want to keep reading about him, I’m happy to keep giving them stories.”
David is of course the writer of many classic Hulk tales — some feel the classic Hulk tales — so it’s good to have everyone back on board for Pappy Hulk!
