Comic Book 101 – The Red Hulk

3 min read


Don’t make me angry. You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry. That’s a line that is often uttered by the Hulk, usually before he transforms into a green-skinned steroid rage monster and smashes stuff up like a boet in a shop that has run out of Tapout T-shirts the day before an EFC Africa pay-per-view. But he’s not the only Hulk around. Say hello, to the Red Hulk.

So here’s a new video feature that I’m trying out on the site. Everyone here knows how much I love comic books, but the origin for this idea came back at E3. After the event had wrapped, Zoe and I decided to hit Venice Beach, along with the cool dudes from Megarom and Microsoft. While there, I found myself in a toy shop, and I decided to treat myself.

So I bought myself a kickass Red Hulk action figure. While sitting in a bar and waiting for some El Diablo hotwings, I was naturally admiring the figure, before I was asked who the Red Hulk actually was. And that’s when the idea for this video series hit me. Quick, comic book primers for folks who have no idea who these characters are.

I perhaps have way, way too much comic book knowledge, and I love talking about the medium. I don’t have much time during the day to craft these videos, but as usual, I hope that by doing them regularly they will improve over time. So the first one is above you as you can see, where I go full circle and give a talk on the rampagin’ Red Hulk.

If there’s any specific character that you’d like to see, lemme know! I’m more than happy to cater to your whims!

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
