Hulk: Red Hardcover

Client: Marvel Comics
Date: January 7, 2009
Posted by JG

"The smart thing about the Marvel Premiere Edition hardcover compilation of the series' first six issues is the package design by Comicraft's John Roshell. The whole book is in on the joke. Each issue is introduced with a fake old style boxing poster showing the Hulk fighting whoever he's about to take on in the issue. The opening page to the book has a faux ticket to a boxing event that shows the row and seat number as the page count for the book and its volume number. Cute.

"It's not just a well-designed piece of work, but it also fits the tone of the book. This is a book about the big fights. Thor throws punches and a hammer. Iron Man, Ares, and She-Hulk do their best to keep the battle sound effects of Comicraft's library active. Fights happen in the desert, on a helicarrier, in space, on a bridge, etc. Remember when more superhero comics used to do that kind of stuff?"
