Wolverine fans are going to love the new comic book series coming from Marvel Comics. This is the second title coming out for the fan-favorite character, and it’s titled Wolverine: Black, White & Blood.
Wolverine: Black, White & Blood is an anthology series featuring “an all-star cast of creators” and it will tell standalone stories for the character in a black and white art style with splashes of red blood. Series editor Mark Basso said in a statement:
“I can’t stress how exciting it is getting all of these pages from the absolutely killer level of talent assembled for this book. It’s become a hype cliché, but you’ve really never seen anything quite like this from Marvel Comics. And you’ve only seen a fraction of the first issue…”
Each issue will come with three stories, with the debut issue containing a story that offers a flashback to the the Weapon X program days for “a new revelation from Wolverine’s shattered memories.” There will also be a Nick Fury team-up story, and a standalone story, which we have no story details for.
The first story is coming from Main Wolverine title creators Gerry Duggan and Ada Kubert. The second one will be developed by writer Matthew Rosenberg and artist Joshua Cassara, and the third one is coming from writer and artist Declan Shalvey.
Shalvey says in a statement:
“This is a real career highlight for me. I’ve written Old Man Logan, I’ve drawn Return of Wolverine, but getting to write and draw Wolverine in a moody, stripped-down story is a real jewel in my crown, as it were.
“Not only that but to showcase my work in black and white with the added tool of a stylized red really opens up interesting storytelling possibilities. I get to take a stab (pun intended) at one of my absolute favorite characters and depict him in a more definitive way.”
Future issues of Wolverine: Black, White & Blood will include new work from Vita Ayala, Chris Claremont, Saladin Ahmed, Donny Cates, Ed Brisson, Kelly Thompson, Greg Land, Salvador Larroca, Kev Walker, Chris Bachalo, and Leonard Kirk.
Wolverine: Black, White & Blood #1 is scheduled to go on sale in November. I’ll be looking forward to reading this! You can check out a preview of what’s to come below!
