Greg Pak hits a home run with the Red Skull Incarnate

Greg Pak tackles the Nazi criminal in a definitive origin story for the Red Skull in Red Skull: Incarnate.

“This is the story of how an orphan becomes a monster. That’s not a simple flipping of a switch — it’s a harrowing, intense, chilling experience, and each issue of the miniseries will reflect that.”

 

 

“I approached the covers as if they were real posters, newspapers and Nazi propaganda from that time, kind of in a documentary style. ”

His previous WWII origin story, “Magneto: Testament” used the character’s name and origin to tell a moving, and very historically accurate, Holocaust story.

Where Magneto had you rooting for the villain, here, Pak showed you why some people are just born bad.

Greg Pak is a filmmaker and comic book writer best known for writing the epic Planet Hulk and World War Hulk comic book storylines.

It’s historical setting and attention to period detail is the perfect stage for this origin story.
