Marvel held a "Next Big Thing" press conference today to discuss Jeph Loeb and Simone Bianchi's Wolverine story.
Good news for fans of Marvel's cartoons - Jeph Loeb will be at least momentarily distracted from his systematic destruction of everything you know and love as he works on his latest Wolverine story. Loeb began the first part of the story that continues in Sabretooth Reborn, Evolution, five years ago, and he says that he always intended to come back and tell this followup. "I wanted to tell the sequel right away, but I saw that people were enjoying their cartoons a little too much and my very lifeforce is replenished by sucking joy from people's souls through cancelling great cartoons and replacing them with pale imitations aimed at five year olds and idiots, so you can imagine I've been busy," is something that Loeb did not actually say, but we imagine describes his thought process. Indeed, Loeb's drive to remove the complexity and nuance from any project he lays his clawed talons upon seems to have affected even Bianchi, who promises that his pages will be laid out in a simpler and easier to understand manner.
A lot has changed since Loeb wrote Evolution, but he intends to ignore any kind of evolving continuity, and will instead feature Cloak and Dagger and Romulus in the storyline, as well as an as-yet-unrevealed secret guest star. In fact, Loeb has promised to not even reference continuity from his own issues, assuring readers that they won't need to have read Evolution to understand Sabretooth Reborn. In fact, they won't even need to read Sabretooth Reborn. They can just look at the covers. Below are some images we stole from IGN. Sabretooth Reborn begins in Wolverine #310.
