When Patrick Jankiewicz, decided to venture out and write, You Wouldn’t Like me When I’m Angry! A Hulk Companion, no one should have expected anything less than a gamma radiating 509 page definitive guide to the late 70s television series.
Jankiewicz has penned a MARVEL-ous (all puns intended) reader for a series that launched the career of Lou Ferrigno who gave life to the loveable yet misunderstood monster that was presumed to cause mayhem on a weekly basis.
A well versed journalist and California State University, San Bernandino Alumnus, Jankiewicz, has poured himself into this amazingly in depth coffee table books, chock-full of anecdotes from cast members and crew, including, creator, Stan Lee, character actor, Mickey Jones, ’80s pop-rocker, Rick Springfield and the Hulk himself.
From the origins of the Hulk, into the creation of the series, filming techniques, the failed She-Hulk pilot and an episodic breakdown, You Wouldn’t Like me When I’m Angry! is a must read for any Marvel Comics enthusiast and TV buff.
No stranger to the films and television, Jankiewicz has appeared in several commercials, independent and SyFy Channel films. His work has been published in Marvel Comics, Star Trek the Magazine, Fangoria, Wizard and a resume too long to list.
If you are going to read one book about the Incredible Hulk television series, than You Wouldn’t Like me When I’m Angry! should be the only one on your list.
