Saturday evening at New York City Comic Con saw Marvel Comics playing the long game by focusing primarily on the reveal of upcoming art for Excalibur, X-Force, Fallen Angels, Marauders, and New Mutants, as audiences anticipated a cavalcade of announcements in regards to the next wave of Dawn of X. With the success of House of X and Powers of X, the Marvel spotlight has been placed back on X-Men. But just one new Dawn of X series was announced by Senior X-Men Editor Jordan White: Wolverine, debuting in February 2020.
The new Wolverine will be written by Benjamin Percy (X-Force) and drawn by powerhouse artists Adam Kubert and Victor Bogdonavic. This was the only title revealed for the second wave lineup.
“We all have that character. The one we love more than any other. The one we treasure in books and movies and maybe memorialize with a T-shirt or tattoo. The one we relate to as a cracked-mirror version of ourselves,” remarked Percy. “For me — as a growly, grumpy, hairy, smelly, muscled, flannel-clad, whiskey-swilling loner who lives in the woods of the frozen north — it’s Logan. And though this might sound corny, it also feels right to say that writing Wolverine is a dream come true, a childhood fantasy realized. No kidding, bub.”
Wolverine #1 hits shelves in February. Check out the cover art by Adam Kubert below and stay tuned for a full panel report here on The Beat!
