Marvel Announces Paul Cornell Wolverine Series

Paul Cornell has jumped the DC ship.



Source: iFanboy

Marvel came out with yet another Marvel NOW! teaser.  This one hints at a Paul Cornell/Alan Davis Wolverine series, which is a big deal mainly because it's Paul Cornell returning to Marvel after a lengthy stint at DC.

We imagine that the new series will be entitled Genteel Wolverine, and will act as a counter to Frank Cho's "boobs and stabbing" Savage Wolverine series.  Cornell's Wolverine will probably focus on Wolverine attempting to clean up his act and behave more like the role model he's become for the next generation of children.  It also stands a better chance of shipping on time, unlike Cho's book, which Vegas oddmakers are placing 100:1 odds on the second issue shipping within two months of the first.

On a related note, this announcement could be a major blow for DC, as Paul Cornell was one of the most talented writers in their shallow talent pool.  Cornell previously wrote the fantastic Captain Britain and MI13 which almost pushes this new Wolverine series into the "will read without hesitation" category, despite the fact that it features the Mary Sue of Marvel.

Goof move for Cornell who I felt was underused at D.C.

Just thought of something, what if there is a Candestine cross-over. Not sure I'd enjoy the book as much.

I'm REALLY hoping Davis got that out of his system with the DD/Wolvy/FF Annual crossover that nobody read this summer.

That would be my hope as well, and I was one of those who stayed away from those books because of Candestine appearance. the fact that I really enjoy Davis work made it hard to pass them up.

Wow, another Wolverine series. Does the editorial staff have an erection for the character or what? How many Wolverine books do we need now?

Yes, one would think and I cannot disagree with that statement, but the guy does have a movie coming out soon so they need a night hearty catalog of current stuff to put out in trade when it hits theaters.

Goof move? If he is underused, shouldn't he want to move?
