This is not specifically a Hulk thing and it is not my intention to ruffle any political feathers. But I felt I just had to make mention of this political parody comic.
I give you ‘The Tremendous Trump’ one-shot issue. Released October 11, 2017. For obvious reasons I think it can be seen why I wanted to feature this in a Hulk blog. To be quite frank this comic is not that funny, the story is flimsy and the art is random.
That being said it did give me a couple of chuckles. Mostly I just liked the homage cover and the blatant Hulk references throughout.
Despite your opinions on the current POTUS this comic does capture a certain point of view. I have always found political cartoons fascinating for their ability, in most cases, to capture the feelings of the public. I think this comic at least does that by incorporating some current perceptions on the media, social issues and political happenings.
Its almost like a time capsule of all the craziness going on nowadays. And whether you agree or not with it’s views you have to admit it is a perception going around.
A similar item came out awhile ago (from the same publisher actually) and I regret not buying it when I saw it. The item was a Trump vs Clinton adult coloring book which included a flip cover of Trump and Clinton fighting as Hulk and Wolverine from Incredible Hulk #181. It’s currently being sold on eBay around $40-90. So it obviously caught enough people’s attention.
So if you enjoy political satire or just like homage covers this comic may just be for you. Currently its in comic stores for about $5.00. And it might look good on the shelf next to Trump’s book ‘The Art of the Deal”. 🙂

Another clip from Thor: Ragnarok has been released onto Youtube. This time it features Korg, the Kronan, who would be one of Hulk’s warbound in the comics and animated feature.
At first I was excited…but then I watched the clip and I thought “this has to be a joke?” Korg sounds like nothing you would expect. I always imagined him with this low, gravelly voice (pun intended). The reason this worked is cause Miek was supposed to have the weaker, high pitched voice. It was a balance of character persona’s.
But this Korg sounds like a smaller, normal guy. I guess it’s supposed to be funny. His voice not matching his body…but come on! I have been extremely excited for this film, but the more I see of the comedy I feel like they turned what could possibly be Hulk’s shining moment…into a big joke.
I’m really not happy or impressed with this choice. Now maybe I am seeing this out of context. Perhaps there is more then what I am seeing. But at this moment…I am starting to have some doubts about the directing choices for this film.
I hope I’m wrong. See the clip below and you be the judge.
Entertainment Weekly recently released an exclusive clip for the new Thor: Ragnarok film showing part of the initial meetup of Thor and Hulk. It also shows just how popular Hulk is on the planet Sakaar.
But of course you can’t beat the look of numb fear across Loki’s face. The last time Loki and Hulk crossed paths the trickster god got a major spanking.

Lately I’ve been hooked on Kickstarter. Backing the coolest and unique projects. Well I just discovered a project that resonates with me as a Hulk fan. I invite you to check out, Demofist. A new project being currently funded on Kickstarter. The item in question is a solid steel fist that can be held with one hand and used for demolition purposes. The interior is foam covered with a cushioned bar. Is it practical? Perhaps not. But does it look fun to use? It does indeed.
I felt it was worthy to fund at early bird pricing. If you want this I suggest you hurry over and grab it soon. As a Hulk fan I cannot wait to SMASH things with this!
So it seems in further celebration (and to continue sucking every dollar out of us Hulk fans) of Thor: Ragnarok, a number of theatre concessions have been revealed. The highlights being the Hulk popcorn bucket (I want) and the Hammer drink cup (yeah I’ll have that too). The drink toppers are kinda cool too! I hope theatres near me get these! Feast your eyes! November is still too far away.
Here is another random commercial featuring mean green. This time he saves a city…with the “help” of a SUV. I don’t know what’s going on. Just watch it and move on.
Oh…and in case you missed this…yeah….seems the first official trailer for Ragnarok dropped. Yeah…no big deal.
At least now I have something else I can watch on repeat aside from that teaser from April. So yeah…check it out…I guess.
I am so excited!!!
