Another first is coming up from the House of Ideas this March. Immortal Hulk #33 is hitting stores on March 25th, and while it will be the 750th issue of Hulk in terms of legacy numbering, it's another milestone that caught our ear at the Next Big Thing panel at C2E2. Bleeding Cool Ace Reporter and shoe-in for next year's journalism Eisner David Pierce was on hand at the panel to send us breaking news, and he provided us this juice quote from Al Ewing:
"Hulk #33 will be the issue where they succeed with the long-standing goal of making a reader vomit while reading the issue."

It's nice to have aspirations. Though to be fair, we're thinking of vomitting over the thought of paying six bucks for a single-issue comic book.
Here's some preview art of Immortal Hulk #34 shown of at the panel.
Ewing also revealed that Immortal Hulk #36 will be "horrible and heartbreaking."
You may recall that's the issue we speculated could be the book's last, leading to a relaunch, perhaps with a different title.
