The Incredible Hulk Presents...

The Incredible Hulk Presents was a short-lived weekly comic produced by Marvel UK in 1989. Amongst other material it contained black and white original Doctor Who strips featuring the Seventh Doctor.

The Incredible Hulk Presents was launched on the 30th September 1989, with issue #1 bearing a cover date of 7th October 1989, and lasted twelve issues, costing 40p for the entirety of its run. The original intention was for the new comic strips to also be reprinted in Doctor Who Magazine, as Marvel UK did not believe the two audiences would overlap, with The Incredible Hulk Presents probably having an audience of younger readers. Doctor Who Magazine editor John Freeman was opposed as he believed this would interfere with his own attempts to give the DWM strip direction. In the event, only one story was printed in both titles, Hunger from the Ends of Time. One unpublished strip, Doctor Conkeror was produced for the unprinted issue #13. It later saw print in Doctor Who Magazine number 162.

  1. Actually, I wasn't so much bothered by the comic strips themselves as the fact that the plan was to reprint them in Doctor Who Magazine. They simply weren't right for DWM IMHO. I had no real issue with TV Comic style 'Doctor Who strips for a younger audience in a comic aimed at a younger audience (I wrote two of them, after all!). The strips are being reprinted by Panini in 2013.
