'Wolverine' a la Marvel NOW!

Launches in March

Published: 11/20/2012, Last Updated: 11/21/2012 01:12pm
In March, everyone’s favorite clawed curmudgeon gets the Marvel NOW! treatment with Wolverine #1, written by Paul Cornell (Saucer Country) with art by Alan Davis (The Uncanny X-Men).  Marvel teased this ongoing series recently (see "Marvel Teases 'Snikt'"), but the House of Ideas has now revealed the title and creative team.
 
Cornell’s return to Marvel finds Wolverine facing a new adversary he cannot see.  This forces Logan to battle to the best of his feral ability while making sure that innocents remain unharmed.  Wolverine, given more of a leadership role in the Marvel Universe, will also be depicted as a "regular guy" who likes to hang out with his friends in New York City.
 
As with various other Marvel NOW! titles, Wolverine #1 will feature exclusive augmented reality content (behind-the-scenes info, cover recaps, and the like) through the Marvel AR app.  In addition, each issue of Wolverine will include a free digital copy.  Marvel also promises retailer incentives.
