Marvel Announces Creative Teams On The Four ‘Hunt For Wolverine’ Series
by Hannah Means Shannon
Wolverine has been the “Where’s Waldo” of Marvel Comics ever since 2017’s Marvel Legacy #1, and this year he’s going to be making a bigger presence felt. And is that really the Logan we’ve been looking for?
This May, Marvel are going to continue the story that began in The Hunt for Wolverine #1, and that story is only going to get bigger, expanding across four whole series.
Marvel is teasing that these events are going to have a big impact on the mutants, and even “harken back to their old school adventures”, leaving lasting changes behind.
Orchestrated by Charles Soule, who also wrote Hunt for Wolverine and Death of Wolverine, other talent on the multiple series will include: Jim Zub, Mariko Tamaki, Tom Taylor, Matteo Buffagni, R.B. Silva, Butch Guice, and Chris Bachalo.
The four series will form “one interlocking epic adventure”, according to Marvel, and each will have its own genre: Weapon Lost (noir/detective), Adamantium Agenda (action/adventure), Claws Of A Killer (horror) and Mystery in Madripoor (dark romance).
Series Editor Mark Paniccia says:
I’ve been holding my tongue, just waiting to announce this project and team of ultra-talented creators. While these stories all reveal clues to the larger mystery behind Wolverine’s return, the writers all have some pretty huge moments planned that will have X-MEN fans talking and debating for some time to come.
The series will feature characters from Daredevil to Kitty Pryde to Spider-Man to Iron Man, and more.
All of this will eventually unravel mysteries that lead to a “spectacular return” for Wolverine.
