Wolverine: Black,White,&Blood Announced with bloody preview pages
Marvel has announced Wolverine: Black, White, & Blood, a new anthology book that’s “black and white with a splash of blood”.
And because this is an anthology book, we should expect Wolverine stories from various points of his life. The first issue features three stories that focuses on Wolverine during his Weapon X days written by Gerry Duggan and Adam Kubert. “Writing ‘Snikt!’ into a script is always a blast,” says Duggan, “and collaborating with the great Adam Kubert is always a joy. Adam and Logan are one of the best pairs in comics, and I’m lucky to be along on this ride. Black, White & Blood is something special.”
Kubert adds, “I’ve had a fairly long association with Wolverine, but artistically Wolverine: Black, White, & Blood eclipses them all.”
We also have another story written by Matthew Rosenberg and Joshua Cassara featuring an adventure with Nick Fury and Logan going undercover. “Growing up, my older brother had a pile of the original Marvel Comics Presents books and I loved the short stories about Wolverine,” says Cassara. “I feel like this book carries on in that spirit and I’m living out my childhood dream of drawing him here. But with more blood.”
There’s a third story written by Declan Shalvey which puts Logan into a deadly trap. “This is a real career highlight for me,” notes Shalvey. “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.”
Editor Mark Basso states:
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…
Future issues of Wolverine: Black, White & Blood include stories by Vita Ayala, Chris Claremont, Saladin Ahmed, Donny Cates, Ed Brisson, Kelly Thompson, Greg Land, Salvador Larroca, Kev Walker, Chris Bachalo, Leonard Kirk, and other.
