Following last week’s release of the one-word “Savage” promo for a new Marvel NOW! series, Marvel has confirmed that Frank Cho will both be writing and illustrating a new Wolverine title. The upcoming series, titled Savage Wolverine, will feature the title X-Men character as he teams up with Shanna the She-Devil in the Savage Land, a territory that Cho knows well after his work on the Shanna the She-Devil limited series back in 2005.
Frank Cho talked a bit about the series with Marvel ahead of New York Comic Con and revealed a few of his ideas for the series.
This isn’t just a solo Wolverine story. It’s actually a team-up story with Shanna the She-Devil. Both Wolverine and Shanna have similar assertive personalities. The story is not just a quest to get home; it’s a story about surviving each other’s company and the Savage Land.
It’s a great jumping in point for new readers. You really don’t need to know too much back history of the character to follow and enjoy this story. I’m going to introduce brand new characters who may be very important down the road. ‘Nuff said.
Expect more details to be revealed at New York Comic Con.
