Distinctions

The twelve issue "War Machine" series written by Greg Pak with art by Leonardo Manco, Allan Jefferson, Wellinton Alves, Mahmud Asrar, and R.B. Silva, has nabbed the coveted Maximum Force Award from ComicCritique.com. Here's an excerpt:

The triple-twists of plot and cat-and-mouse motivations of the characters ranked with the best suspense/spy stuff ever done, and the way that humanity and the heroes, if not winning, get a way to live and even make the most of another day was immensely satisfying and utterly unsentimental. A milestone of story that gets to make its point and toughness that works to show its substance.

"War Machine," written by Greg Pak with art by Leonardo Manco, has been nominated for three Glyph Comics Awards, including Story of the Year, Best Writer, and Fan Award for Best Comic. The winners will be announced in May in Philadelphia at the East Coast Black Age of Comics Con 2010.

The users of Comic Book Resources' X-Men Forums have voted on their favorite books of 2009, and "Magneto Testament" has been named the Best Mini-Series of 2009. Here's a blurb:

Magneto's past is often glossed over, without much focus, as concentration camps aren't exactly a subject that's explored in depth in all ages comics that often. Greg Pak, though, wanted to go there, and help to explore what it is that makes a guy like Magneto who he is, giving him his truest, most definitive origin story ever.

Eye On Indies has named "Robot Stories" one of the top twenty films of the decade. Here's the blurb:

ROBOT STORIES (2003) four stories by Greg Pak called "science fiction from the heart" that continue to resonate with me since my Literature of the Fantastic course in college. This is an exemplary film by a first time filmmaker for first time filmmakers. Subtle and sublime presentation of human nature in a technological-worshipping society.

"Incredible Hercules," written by Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente, continues to rack up appearances on more "Best of 2009" lists from comics bloggers. Here are the latest:

CBR's Top 100 Comics of 2009:

"Incredible Hercules'" continues to be the best superhero comic on the market. The stories are a mix of great elements: action, excitement, pathos, and best of all humor. The characters continue to be fascinating as well. Thanks to this series, Hercules is now one of my favorite characters, and even though he's a god, he's one of the most human of Marvel's heroes. Plus, this year Pak and Van Lente showed that Herc's sidekick, Amadeus Cho, was just as compelling a character as the titular god.

Josh On Comics - Best Character of 2009: Hercules:
Brilliantly funny, and a pleasing tonic to the hordes of more responsible, some would say boring heroes, van Lente's [and Pak's] Hercules manages to be an utter buffon while remaining immensely likeable. His relationship with Amadeus Cho is also very sweet, the two of them are currently one of my favourite pairings in comics.

Comics And More:

The stories are great: battles with Amazons, teaming up with Namora, going on an odyssey with other gods to take down a skrull god...they're just a lot of fun and I really look forward to reading more.

Newsarama Best Shots Best of 2009:

Bronze – The Incredible Hercules (Marvel Comics): One of the very best books Marvel has been responsible for, the continuing tale of a god, his human sidekick, and his child-aged father (who also happens to be the king of the gods). Humor, action and drama are all represented equally in this book, reminding us that not everything in the Marvel Universe has to be doom and gloom and politics. His battle (as Thor) against Thor (as Hercules) is a true highlight of the book. Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente deserve credit for not only rehabilitating an at-best second tier character, but making The Incredible Hercules a true must-read title.

Film Fodder's Top Ten Series of 2009:

In short, we have a series that is funny, fun, all within continuity, and it still manages to make itself relevant to meta-events like Dark Reign. All that, and I didn’t even talk about Amadeus Cho, one of the best new characters in Marvel to date.

"Magneto Testament," written by Greg Pak with art by Carmine DiGiandomenico, has been named the Best Comic of 2009 by ZonaNegativa.com.

"Magneto Testament," written by Greg Pak with art by Carmine DiGiandomenico, has been named one of the Top 5 comics of 2009 by Jeff Jackson at ComicAttack.net. Here's the blurb:

One of the best stories Marvel has published ever, in my opinion, like Old Man Logan, featured a character not in his traditional element. This story fleshed out the background of Magneto in the Nazi concentration camp of Auschwitz. It was horrible, beautiful, and meaningful. Forget Hulk, this is Greg Pak’s best work.

Comic Lists's Geek Goggle Year Ender has given the Favorite Collected Miniseries of 2009 nod to "Magneto Testament," written by Greg Pak. Here's the blurb:

Normally I don't purchase trades if I own the single issues but this series was too good to pass up on in the collected form and it included a ton of extras in it. The volume had extensive information about the Holocaust as well as some of the items used to research this story. If you did miss this mini series it's probably better to pick up the collected edition because of all of the extras.

Shazhmmm:

Herc is better than all other superhero comics that came out in 2009, and frankly is about the only thing that gets me into the shop these days. It's not just hilarious, but a smart integration of myth, archetypal heroic storytelling, and awesomely retarded superhero b***s***. All the epic godly grandeur, improbable science, and fantastic sound effects are grounded by one of the more believable relationships in comics, the friendship of Hercules and Amadeus Cho.
Section244:
MY FAVORITE ONGOING SERIES (SUPER HERO): Incredible Hercules by Greg Pak & Fred Van Lente.

There were a number of ongoing titles I followed this last decade which I would consider great comics (see below), but above them all I've chosen Incredible Hercules.

Aptitude Test:
Maybe the most fun superhero book in years. On the surface, a super-goofy adventure book staring Herc and teen sidekick/super-genius Amadeus Cho, full of giant fights and the best sound effects in comics. On closer inspection, it becomes a great exploration on the nature of heroics, and the relationship between superheroes and their older brother, ancient myth.
UPDATE: Add Jeff at Jim Hanley's Universe to the list!
Folding in intricacies of greek myth, quantum mechanics, asides that do everything from brilliantly extrapolating the mechanisms of the afterlife to the best sound effects in comics (SUKKA-PUNCH!), rip-roaring action set pieces and complex yet accessible stories, this is the smartest comic on the stands while never loosing its goofiness.

The Austin American Statesman has dubbed "Incredible Hercules," "Captain America," "Secret Six," and "Detective Comics" as "four of the very best mainstream comics being published today." Here's the blurb about Herc:

"Hercules" is a perfect admixture of vintage mythology, sitcom humor, high adventure and punching.

Anderson at YouOffendMeYouOffendMyFamily.com has dubbed "Magneto Testament," written by Greg Pak, the best comic book of 2009. Here's an excerpt from the review:

Pak wrote a humanistic tale full of authentic and dark experiences that shaped the Magneto that we know today. It’s an origin story, much like Frank Miller’s seminal Batman: Year One but takes it one step further in crafting a storyline that doesn’t deal with men in tights and super powers.

"Incredible Hercules," written by Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente, has been named the 7th best comic series of 2008 by Comic Book Resources, the highest ranked Marvel comic book on the list. Here's an excerpt from the article:

Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente took a flagship Marvel book and character and summarily replaced him with a small time Avenger and his teenage sidekick. Surprising everyone, in doing so they created one of the most charming and oddly moving superhero books of the year. - Reviewer Benjamin Birdie

IGN has named "Magneto Testament" the Best Miniseries of 2008. Here's an excerpt from the article:

Greg Pak has spent years researching Magneto's past, mapping events in his life with true historical accounts of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. The result is a tragic tale that not only respects the horrors of that era but lays down a definitive, sympathetic origin for one of the greatest villains of all time.

"Magneto Testament" is written by Greg Pak with art by Carmine DiGiandomenico. The fourth issue of the miniseries hits comic book stores on January 2, 2009.

Mike Guardabascio at PulpFictionOnline has dubbed Greg Pak and Ed Brubaker as the year's best mainstream comic book writers. Here's the blurb about Pak:

No question about it, nobody turned in more solid performances than these two guys this year, in mainstream books at least. Greg Pak changed the tenor of big events with his universe-spanning Planet Hulk epic, followed by the spectacular World War Hulk, which was marketed as its own event but which reads much better as a sequel to PH. Pak did an event with characters true to their cores (unlike Civil War), that improved a major character without retconning or changing him too much. Pak's Hulk is spectacular, and not to be missed.

In his "2007 in Review" column at ComicCritique, Adam McGovern has named Greg Pak the Writer of the Year -- and has some very nice things to say about "Hulk" and "Hercules" editor Mark Paniccia. Here's the blurb:

Pak was the one in 2007 to pick up the Grant Morrison banner and prove that crossovers can be art. In the main World War Hulk mini the relentless momentum of Pak’s narrative and the punishing physicality of John Romita Jr.’s bravura visuals conveyed anxieties run amok and real-life war-weariness raised to a hysterical pitch. Pak’s regular Incredible Hulk book was an even more fascinating narrative of the War’s underground factions and captive bystanders, conveying the human cost and psychic shockwaves of conflicts real and fantastic like few other comics of our war-torn decade. The other “fronts” in tie-in titles were almost all as interesting — especially the deranged displaced-persons/profiteer melodrama in Zeb Wells’ Heroes for Hire — and the ramifying followup books shaded the narrative across the genre spectrum, from the sober and humane postwar elegy of Pak’s Aftersmash one-shot to the inventive suspense and moral ambiguity of his lost-platoon Warbound mini to the offbeat insurrection comedy (!) of the Incredible Herc ongoing (!!), an on-the-road (and on-the-run) adventure with Hercules and Amadeus Cho alone against SHIELD in a battle where what’s most at risk is heroism itself (this last one a real-life dream-teamup between Pak and rising auteur Fred Van Lente as co-writer). Every precinct of what I think of as the Paniccia Comics Group — that most original and oddball corner of Marvel’s overall cosmos, under editor Mark Paniccia’s wise dominion — gave its all for the kind of epic that will hopefully become a trend; call it event-garde.

Meanwhile, in his "Everything but Imaginary" column, Blake Petit of Comixtreme has named "Incredible Hercules" #113, written by Pak and Fred Van Lente, as his "Favorite of the Week." Click here to read the column.

Greg Pak's "Planet Hulk" epic makes Randy Myer's Best of 2007 graphic novels list for the Oakland Tribune. An excerpt:

... this adventure with the big, mean green one so engrossed me that I turned into a hermit one weekend to read it. Pak blasts the Hulk to a bloodthirsty planet caught up in a brutal caste system. This is epic, grand story-telling, on par with "Gladiator" and "Lord of the Rings." A book that never lags, never disappoints.

The Thursday Morning Quarterback Crew at WizardUniverse.com mentions Greg Pak in the "Best Writer" section of their Best of 2007 column. An excerpt:

I came late to the Pak party in Hulk, but every month of this year, he’s delivered something I never thought possible—he made me care about the Hulk.... I got a completely fresh take on a character I used to avoid, and I got a solid year’s worth of entertaining, nail-biting stories that kept me coming back each month. That’s all you can ask for.
...
I think that whole little corner of the Marvel U, all the post-World War Hulk spinoffs and storylines, are some of the most exciting comics Marvel’s putting out right now. That’s definitely something worth watching for in 2008.

Wizard Magazine has come out with its "Best of 2007" list, and Greg Pak and the Hulk are big winners. The "Incredible Hulk" comic book, written by Pak, has been named "Best Ongoing Series." And Pak's been named "Breakout Talent." Here's an excerpt:

"Planet Hulk" turned the big green behemoth from a ragin monster into a deeply complex and psychologically driven character. And with "World War Hulk," Pak proved his ability to deliver complex, heartfelt storytelling and intense scenes of action on the grand stage of company-wide crossovers.
