Alan Davis on Marvel Now!'s Wolverine (and Paul Cornell too!)

Paul Cornell and Alan Davis will be the creators on the Marvel Now! Wolverine series which will kick off in March 2013.

I've been rather lukewarm on Marvel's soft reboot of their titles, however the Wolverine has me excited and counting down the days until March 2013. It's nice to see Davis (inked by Mark Farmer) return to a full-time book. I really enjoyed Paul Cornell's run on Excalibur as well as his Luthor run in Actions Comics.

"I'm going to have Wolverine refer to himself as James Logan.  I know that's not the name he pays his taxes under.  But it's his chosen 'human name' (as Cyclops would put it) now, for reasons that are meaningful, and which old-time readers may well be able to work out quite easily.  Having said that, the new series will be entirely new-reader friendly.  You don't need to know a thing about the world or the characters going in." (
"James is involved in a hostage situation in the heart of New York, which spirals into an action-movie chase with him pursuing...he has no idea, and neither do we. It's something absolutely disciplined, ruthless, and absolutely unconcerned with harming innocents. James has to do something not very nice in front of one such innocent. He's damned if he's going to let it happen again." (
