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.
