Greg Capullo and Jonathan Hickman Takes A Stab At Wolverine With Wolverine: Revenge

Greg Capullo’s Return To Marvel Comics Teams Him Up With Jonathan Hickman On Wolverine: Revenge.

 

Last year at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Comics announced that renowned artist Greg Capullo would make his return to the publisher after years of being away. Since that announcement, Capullo’s work has been limited to covers. But now, the famed artist is jumping back into interior work. Today (May 21st), Marvel Comics announced that Capullo will be teaming up with Jonathan Hickman on a new limited series — Wolverine: Revenge.

From the press release:

WOLVERINE: REVENGE will be five issues of pure, unadulterated Wolverine action just in the time for the iconic character’s 50th anniversary. If that’s not enough, WOLVERINE: REVENGE will also be available as special RED BAND EDITIONS. Like the current Blood Hunt event series, WOLVERINE: REVENGE – RED BAND EDITION will be polybagged for the protection of innocent eyes, and include exclusive pages and elevated violence!

 

Capullo and Hickman pit Wolverine against a cadre of foes who will turn his world upside down, including Sabretooth, Omega Red, Deadpool, and more. He’s been beaten! He’s been bloodied! And Logan only has one thought on his mind: REVENGE!

 

The series cover will come in regular and Red Band versions. You can check out both for Wolverine: Revenge #1 below.

“I’ve finally returned home to Marvel, and I’m ready to raise some Hell. And, who better to do that with than the Hitman Hickman? To celebrate, Marvel has removed the fences and let us off our leash so that we can bring the most vicious and punishing Wolverine story possible to the fans this summer. I hope they’re prepared.”

“Well, obviously it’s such a privilege to get to work with a legend like Greg. When we first talked about the project, our number one concern was taking the readers on a high-octane, no-hold-barred Wolverine story that was a proper celebration of both the character and Greg returning to Marvel. And like he said, the bosses cut us loose and the result is an absolutely wild book. Honestly can’t wait for everyone to get to check it out.”
