Penciller Leinil Yu and inker Gerry Alanguilan share art chores for the new title, which is written by acclaimed "Kingdom Come" writer Mark Waid.

Yu has drawn many best-selling titles for Marvel Comics including "Secret Invasion," "The New Avengers" and "Wolverine."

Alanguilan, on the other hand, has worked on titles such as "Wetworks" and "Superman: Birthright" (also with Yu and Waid). He is also the author and creator of the "Wasted" and "Elmer" graphic novels.

In an interview on Comic Book Resources, Yu said he jumped at the chance to draw the book because of Waid.

"'Superman: Birthright' and working with Mark is one of the highlights of my career and I'm about to get a chance to make another mark in the industry with 'Indestructible Hulk.' I'm almost certain that this will be at the top of my resume, like 'Birthright' is. Like all the great writers I've worked with, he knows how to being out the best in me," he said.

He also said he enjoyed drawing Hulk's new armor in the comic book.

Alanguilan, meanwhile, posted a video on YouTube to talk about his work on the title. In the video, he said he is a huge fan of Waid's writing especially Kingdom Come and his take on Daredevil.

"It's the best Daredevil has ever been since the old Frank Miller days. It's different. It's very creative and very imaginative and I enjoy reading that stuff after being burnt out on a lot of the dark titles," he said.

"Indestructible Hulk" will come out in comic book stores in November 2012.
