Publisher's Summary

Betrayed by Earth's heroes and exiled into outer space, the man-monster known as the Incredible Hulk has landed on the distant planet Sakaar, ruled by the tyrannical Red King. Sold into slavery, the Hulk becomes the Green Scar, the planet's mightiest gladiator! But his new masters get more than they bargained for when he forges a bond of brotherhood with his fellow fighters: crafty insectoid Miek, the horrific Brood, wise rock-man Korg, Shadow Warrior Hiroim, noble-born rebel Elloe, and her loyal guardsman Skee. Together, these gladiators start a revolution that could change their entire world - or destroy it.

This one is in the very top.

I have all of the Marvel audio dramas. This one ranks in the top 3 in use of
1. stereo/effects,
2. voice acting/narration, and best of all... 3. they did the story justice.

The story was cohesive and smooth. It was easy to follow. It did the original comic series justice as well as you can using sound instead of pictures. The effects on this are better than on Avengers vs Xmen.

I paid cash for this because I wanted it before my monthly credit came in. I'm glad I did. This will be my new favorite for road trips.
Caveat emptor: Listen when you can use BOTH ear pieces or preferably in a vehicle for maximum sound effect. Seriously, it's nice.

Great production, great cast, mediocre writing

The narration and voice acting cast do an excellent job. Sound effect work also adds to the experience. The problem with Planet Hulk is the book itself.

Planet Hulk is a novelization of one of the greatest Hulk comic book stories, and it's written by the same man who wrote that series.

Unfortunately, while Greg Pak did a fantastic job with the comics, he falters here. Comics are a visual medium, and the artists convey as much story as the writers do.

Pak holds up his end, but only his end. He wrote this novel as if it came with visual aids. Descriptions are at a bare minimum for both environments and characters. There are major characters who get no description beyond a single attribute and their profession. The context of entire scenes is missed because Pak doesn't translate the artwork of the comic into words on a page. The result is a novel that's functional, but soulless. A bland adaptation of an epic story.

Given that I have seen and read the story thousands of times I did not think I was going to enjoy that much but given the stellar performance amazing story and overall seeing one of my favorite superheroes in action again I guess I was wrong I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is a comic book fan or just A fan of really good stories in general also please make world war hulk into an audiobook that would be freaking awesome

Planet Hulk

Outstanding performances. You find yourself sympathizing with the Hulk in the beginning due to the blatant disregard by earth's heroes, and a feeling of accomplishment towards the end as he shows how truly selfless he can be by rescuing the people from a true despot.

Absolutely perfect!

Action-packed story, with unfamiliar, but well thought out new characters with great back stories. This was my 3rd Marvel audible and favorite so far!
