After drawing a variety of X-related titles (“Emma Frost” and “X-Men Unlimited” among them) and the all-ages “Marvel Adventures: Fantastic Four,” Pagulayan landed the penciling slot in one of Marvel’s iconic titles, “The Incredible Hulk.” He was psyched to be with the not-so-jolly green giant: “Overjoyed and overwhelmed and still in disbelief,” he describes his reaction. “It’s something my friends and I grew up reading and now I’m part of the story creation.” Then it got better. Pagulayan was on board when series writer Greg Pak took the Hulk literally out of this world with the gladiator-themed Planet Hulk story arc, garnering readers and accolades.
