The story by Benjamin Percy, Victor LaValle, Cory Smith and Geoff Shaw begins in January.
If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s that at some point, Wolverine and Sabretooth are going to fight again. This time around, that battle will last for 10 issues of Wolverine’s regular title and will be “the most violent Wolverine story ever told,” according to Marvel.
“Sabretooth is the definition of big bad—one of the nastiest, cruelest, scariest villains in the 616 and Wolverine’s greatest nemesis,” Percy said. “Which is exactly why we haven’t allowed their stories to intersect—during this age of Krakoa—until now. The tension has built up painfully, and now these two savage titans are going to claw and slash their way into each other’s lives again in what will be the most violent Wolverine story in Marvel history.”
For the story, Percy will joined by novelist Victor LaValle, who has written several series featuring Sabretooth in recent years. Each chapter will be “led” by one of the two main characters, with Cory Smith drawing the Wolverine issues and Geoff Shaw drawing those featuring Sabretooth.

The new series launches in February.
Marvel has announced that Johnny Blaze will ride again as Ghost Rider in a new series by Benjamin Percy and Cory Smith.

That flaming skull. That spiked leather jacket. That monstrous bike coughing out clouds of sulfurous exhaust. To this day, the sight of the character blazing along a midnight highway makes my heart rev like a four-stroke engine,” Percy told Marvel.com.

Science fiction writer Rebecca Roanhorse will team with artist Luca Maresca for a new miniseries focused on Echo, the Marvel character who recently gained the power of the Phoenix in the pages of Avengers.
Phoenix Song: Echo — a title that parallels the Phoenix: Endsong and Phoenix: Warsong miniseries from 2005-2006 — will have Roanhorse returning to the character of Maya Lopez, who she wrote in last year’s Marvel’s Voices: Indigenous Voices #1.
“I am excited to return to Echo in her first solo series and follow this thrilling new direction Jason Aaron has taken her,” Roanhorse told Marvel.com. “Readers will see some old favorites re-imagined and some entirely new characters as Echo comes to terms with the incredible and dangerous powers of the Phoenix.”
