Sign of the End Times? Bucking Marvel's trend of dragging out storylines to fit the trade, Peter David has announced his "Tempest Fugit" miniseries-turned-Hulk-arc will be five issues instead of six.

"The way the story's developing, its natural length is five issues. I mean, yeah, I could (pardon the expression) pad it out to six, but what's the point of that? So TF will be issues 77 through 81. Issue 82 will be a one-off, possibly with a guest artist depending on how deadlines are running. What I'm planning to do is a story that will be self-contained, but at the same time lay groundwork for an ongoing story arc if I continue past #82."
