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.
