We know that in the Marvel Cinematic Universe there’s an ultimate showdown pending between The Avengers and the cosmic big bad Thanos in The Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and 2, so one might hardly be blamed to read a little more than usual in a preview for a new comic book miniseries, Thanos Vs Hulk. Want to know what it’s about? Well, the title kind of says it all, doesn’t it? The new series, which will be written and drawn by Thanos’ co-creator Jim Starlin and premieres early next month in a comic book store near you, will take the long way to get to the title bout, but with the pending battle coming to movie screens near you before the end of the decade, you better believe that Marvel’s calling this the “Heavyweight Battle of the Century.”

And here’s the series description from the press release:
The Green Goliath goes toe-to-toe with the Mad Titan for a universe shaking cosmic throwdown in THANOS VS. HULK #1 – the first issue in a brand new limited series kicking off this December! Legendary creator Jim Starlin (Infinity Gauntlet, Thanos: The Infinity Revelation OGN) returns to answer the question – is Hulk really the strongest there is? Abducted by Pip the Troll and dragged halfway across the galaxy to be ransomed to Annihilus, Hulk is already angry. You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry. But Annihilus has plans of his own – plans that will put the Incredible Hulk directly in the path of Thanos, the Mad Titan! Guest starring Iron Man, Blastarr, S.H.I.E.L.D. and more, be there when Jim Starlin brings two of the Marvel Universe’s heaviest hitters to planet shaking blows in THANOS VS. HULK #1 this December!
Thanos Vs Hulk will be on comic book store shelves on December 3.
