Wolverine slashes his way into ‘Dawn of X’ with a new title

Benjamin Percy, Adam Kubert ad Viktor Bogdanovic will chronicle new tales of the Marvel mutant.

Benjamin Percy, Adam Kubert and Viktor Bogdanovic will team up to bring Wolverine back to his own ongoing title, starting in February. The new title will be part of the “Dawn of X” line announced this past summer in San Diego.

“We all have that character,” Percy told Marvel.com. “The one we love more than any other. The one we treasure in books and movies and maybe memorialize with a T-shirt or tattoo. The one we relate to as a cracked-mirror version of ourselves. For me—as a growly, grumpy, hairy, smelly, muscled, flannel-clad, whiskey-swilling loner who lives in the woods of the frozen north—it’s Logan. And though this might sound corny, it also feels right to say that writing Wolverine is a dream come true, a childhood fantasy realized. No kidding, bub.”

Amy Reeder to write and draw ‘Amethyst’ for DC

New monthly series begins in February.

Back when Brian Michael Bendis first announced his curated imprint for DC, Wonder Comics, he promised an Amethyst solo series was coming. At New York Comic Con this weekend, DC revealed that Amy Reeder of Rocketgirl and Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur fame, will write, draw and color the ongoing series.

“When I develop DC books one thing I try to achieve is that sense you got when Apple announced products that were so unexpected and yet made so much sense that you wondered how you got this far in life without it,” said editor Andy Khouri. “That is 100% Amy Reeder writing and drawing Amethyst.”

Cates + Klein bring the thunder in January

An all-new ‘Thor’ title will relaunch next year, pitting the God of Thunder vs. The Black Winter.

Donny Cates and Nic Klein have been deemed worthy to take over Thor after Jason Aaron’s epic run on the title. The duo will relaunch on all new Thor title next year, along with colorist Matthew Wilson.

Chew scribe John Layman is teaming up with Wolverine and the X-Menartist Nick Bradshaw for a new creator-owned title called Bermuda. The series will be published by IDW in 2020.

Bermuda is a story that’s been rattling around in my head for a while, and the type of book I’ve wanted to write for quite some time: high adventure with a jungle hero in a strange, savage land filled with all kinds of dangers and a world that’s both weird and wonderful,” Layman said. “In addition to Chew, my absolute favorite books I’ve ever done have been with IDW – Scarface, Godzilla and Mars Attacks – so I’m hoping lightning strikes a fourth time with Bermuda!”
