Last week we saw the Marvel NOW! teaser 'SAVAGE' that only listed Frank Cho's name. The slash marks lead us to believe Wolverine would be involved. The question was, why would suddenly be savage in a new ongoing title?
Today, Marvel has released some more information on the title.
As you can see, the title does involved Wolverine. Frank Cho will be writing and drawing the title, which debuts in January 2013. Frank Cho is no stranger to the savage element. Cho gave an idea as to why the title will have the savage adjective at Marvel.com.
Oh, it's gets pretty bloody and savage—in a good way.
As to how Cho got involved, Marvel EIC, Axel Alonso, called up Cho and asked if he wanted to work on Wolverine.
I came up with a cool Indiana Jones/Cthulhu type story that I've been toying around with, modified it and turned it into a Wolverine story. Axel loved the story and told me to start working.
It won't be all gruesome action. Cho reminds us that he does come from a humor background. He also pointed out that it's not just a Wolverine solo story. It'll be a team-up with Shanna the She-Devil. Surprisingly, Ka-Zar will not be seen in the story. What are the chances of Wolverine trying to hook up with her?
