Plot Synopsis: Almost 30 years ago in the landmark story FUTURE IMPERFECT, legendary INCREDIBLE HULK scribe Peter David and superstar artist George Pérez introduced Marvel fans to a far-future version of the Hulk known as Maestro – the master of what remains of the world. Ever since, the mystery about how this villainous version of Bruce Banner came to be remained untold but next month, Peter David returns to reveal Maestro’s shocking origin in MAESTRO #1! 

My Take: The Maestro persona of the Hulk has always been a persona that I felt required more in-depth exploration, especially when a hero like the Hulk took such an extremely dark turn. What drove him to adopt that persona and kill the Avengers? Questions like that, and I'm sure many others that fans have will be answered with the new Maestro series.

Peter David's involvement is a huge plus, as he was so instrumental in bringing this persona to life. Dale Keown and Germán Peralta are handling the art duties for this title, and as someone who loved Keown's art with Pitt back in the 90's I'm glad to see him tackling the Hulk once again. Check out the artwork Maestro #1, which hits stores next month.
