Marvel announces a new five issue mini-series for the Hulk's son this April in "Skaar: King of the Savage Land" from writer Rob Williams with art by Brian Ching.

Kazar, of the Savage Land, suddenly finds himself dethroned. Williams is saying little on the who's and why's as not to spoil too much. The writer also states there will be some surprise guest stars and the return of a long lost villain from Marvel history.

With the throne open, many characters will be fighting for the throne. The laws of the jungle persist - the strongest there is - and that's where Skaar comes into play. Williams teases Skaar might just be one of those seeking the crown in addition to Ka-Zar's wife, Queen Shanna.

Whether or not this directly tie into issues of the Incredible Hulk remains to be seen, but from previous solicits and information we know the elder Green Skin heads to the Savage Land when Greg Pak and Dale Eaglesham explore the jungle starting in February's Incredible Hulk #623. This is a three issue arc in Incredible Hulk so Skaar's tale might continue from this.

Look for Skaar: King of the Savage Land this April!
