It's clear that with Marvel Now and All-New Marvel Now, we're seeing more and more series being relaunched. It makes sense and might be annoying for long time readers but we should focus more on the actual content.

Take the just announced WOLVERINE #1. Paul Cornell is still writing but now we're seeing Ryan Stegman take over the art duties. Will that mean no more Spider-Man for Stegman? Well, he does appear on one of the covers unveiled (looks like it's for issue #2).

This February, experience the next thrilling chapter in the life of Marvel’s most dangerous mutant in the explosive WOLVERINE #1 – from the blockbuster writer Paul Cornell and superstar artist Ryan Stegman! And you’ve never seen a Logan like this before – working for a…small-time super-villain?!

Beaten, bloodied, and left for dead by Sabretooth, Logan is out for revenge! And he’s going to get it by any means necessary! But before he can take on Sabretooth again – he’ll have to get better, stronger, and smarter than ever before! But that’s not as easy as he may have thought. And soon he’ll find himself turning to darker, more sinister means of getting what he wants – all in the name of retribution! Even if that means operating on the wrong side of the law to do it!

“The first arc is called ‘Payback’ and that’s where we find him: working for a crime boss called The Offer, alongside a “family” of low-rent super-villains,” said series writer Paul Cornell in an interview with Marvel.com.

“Paul and Ryan’s take on Wolverine is bold, modern, and dark as hell,” says Editor Jeanine Schaefer. “In the aftermath of KILLABLE, Logan is a changed man, and readers will be getting to know him all over again. And wait until you see Ryan’s art – he’s never looked better!”

Can Logan fight back his demons and find the hero within? Or is this the beginning of a Wolverine who’s gone over to the dark side? A bold new direction for the Marvel’s most dangerous mutant begins this February in WOLVERINE #1! Each issue of Wolverine includes a code for a free digital copy on the Marvel Comics app (for iPhone®, iPad®, iPad Touch® & Android devices). Additionally, each issue of Wolverine features special augmented reality content available exclusive through the Marvel AR app – including cover recaps, behind the scenes features and more that add value to your reading experience at no additional cost.

WOLVERINE #1

Written by PAUL CORNELL

Art & Cover by RYAN STEGMAN

I like the redesign but...why does Wolverine need a gun? xD Not complaining, just curious.

UPDATE: Upon further consideration I realized this is probably because no healing factor. Duh.

His claws arent exactly long range :P

Evil Wolverine hunh....

Wonder if he'll have a healing factor that could be the reason for the gun

Fair enough. But he's never needed one before, why start now? xD And a handgun isn't exactly long-range either. Although it is longer range than his claws. But still!

I think healing factor might still be tturned off, and it will be easier then charging enemies or always popping his claws and getting a bad infection

"Why does Wolverine need a gun"

I mean if he's going to secretly be villain-y people would figure out "Wolverine did this" as soon as they see the claws .. just sayin

I'm liking the new costume (or at least what I can see of it), but probably won't pick this up. I'm stretched thin already with my current titles.

True... I hadn't thought about that. xD

But if he's gonna try and be villain-y wouldn't he try to go for a more X-Force Wolverine type of outfit (as in all black) that way he would be less shiny and noticeable?

Should be interesting, if his healing factor is turned of he'll be a tad bit more interesting to see fight. I'll give it a try, hopefully it'll be good.

That art *drools*

Looks like my pull list will be changing quite a bit with this All New thing. Still can't get over how silly it is to re number AGAIN after

only a year. Is this going to keep happening more and more now?

I've been actually considering the comic book "seasons" idea and I think that it could be a good idea.

Haha. Its this idea I read about a few years ago. Basically its the idea of comic books having "seasons" like TV shows. So for like a year or something a series will happen and then it will end for a few months to be brought back for a brand-new "season." I always thought it was an interesting concept that I'd like to see at least attempted for a little while.

@lcazt1996: well we basically already have that considering most books has year long stories (two 5 or 6 issue story arcs) in a year.

The comic medium can't work like television it's its own medium. The constant renumbering just muddies it up.

I realize they want to make it appealing to new readers as thts the name of the game now (old readers hve stayig power regardless). But I'm starting to see what comic fans have been complaining about when I started. They don't seem to care about longtime readers.

I actually really like this new costume design. But I'm curious…what about that new Wolvie costume we saw on that promotional poster? The one with Nightcrawler and a Parker looking Spider-Man. The purplish one. What happened to that one?

Oh I understand. I don't mind straightforward series. I think that the seasons idea COULD work if done right. But I understand why it shouldn't be attempted. xD

These "relaunches" and renumbering to 1 is ridiculous. Why can't they just use a part of that big ugly red banner and print "new arc/jumping on point".

I love Stegman's art, but wish they could/would tell us just how many issues he is actually drawing and who is next in line.

I don't see anything wrong with just starting to read a series when a new arc begins... besides, the current Wolverine series has been going on for what, 12 issues? You'd have to be incredibly lazy to be intimidated by a number like that. So yeah, I don't see the point of renumbering the series either

Just a random guess. I honestly don't know what the reason is for the issue renumbering,but just a guess.

@allstarsuperman: when the Marvel Now movement came out I liked it! It brought me back to Marvel. But these constant restarts are annoying, unnecessary, and quickly turning me away from Marvel again. I just don't see any value on comic books series that will be restarted every year (apparently). Marvel IS KILLING THE CONCEPT OF CLASSIC, memorable runs. It's sad.

New readers can always jump on when a new arc starts.A relaunch isn't an answer for a thing like that.If the title was going for like 50 or more issues I would get it but it has had 11 issues.
