Marvel Comics 02.13.08 | Trading “Scalped” for “Snikt!”

wolverine-header.jpgJason Aaron, writer for the Vertigo cult hit Scalped, takes on Mr. Best There Is At What He Does with artist Ron Garney by his side in Wolverine #62, and we’ve got a whopping 7-page preview! Meanwhile, Messiah CompleX tears a team apart in X-Factor #28, Richard Rider faces off with the Phalanx in Nova Annual #1, and, from the looks of it, Bullseye’s trying to unmask Spidey in Amazing Spider-Man #550. An unmasked Spider-Man? Now there’s a new story idea!



Jason Aaron Sets Wolverine On A Quest For Revenge!

In the aftermath of Messiah CompleX, Wolverine is set on a quest for vengeance-and he’s got some new friends to help him make it happen! In Wolverine #62, an X-Men: Divided We Stand tie-in, red-hot (and newly-Marvel Exclusive) author Jason Aaron (Scalped) and fan-favorite artist Ron Garney (Amazing Spider-Man) set Logan on a bezerker barrage for someone who’s role in Messiah CompleX is so huge, so pivotal that they may just get snikt’d! Now that Wolverine has seen the cost of this war over the new mutant child, he’s not about to let the responsible parties get away!


"Jason and Ron deliver a high-octane chase movie that’ll have you gasping…and that sheds new light on Logan ‘s long and complicated relationship with another core X-Men character," says X-Men Group Editor Axel Alonso.


Spinning out of the red-hot, sold-out Messiah CompleX, Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Wolverine #62 and all Divided We Stand branded series. Wolverine’s done revenge before, but now that it’s so personal, is he willing to go over the edge to get what he wants?

Nova Rockets Into His First Annual!


The repercussions of Annihilation: Conquest reveal a look into the Human Rocket’s past, and even his future, in the extra-sized Nova Annual #1!


Following the events of Nova #10, Richard Rider has pushed himself to his very limits.  After the Phalanx infected the last centurion with their insidious transmode virus, Nova fought to free himself from the control of the tyrannical techno-organic species, but has not yet been able to expel the invader from his system.  On the verge of finally reaching the Phalanx’s homeworld, and possibly securing the help that could halt the Conquest, Nova discovers his war against the Phalanx may already be lost!


In their review of Nova #10, declared Nova "HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" and said "(writers) Abnett/Lanning brilliantly set up the upcoming Nova Annual #1, putting the hero in dire straits and making the Annual a must-read, to cover an important chapter in Nova’s battle against the Phalanx virus."


Written by the red-hot writing team of Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning , along with the eye-melting art of Dynamo 5’s Mahmud S. Asrar (who makes his Marvel debut here), Klebs and Wellinton Alves, Nova Annual #1 is an integral chapter in the continuing story not only of the Human Rocket, but of the entire Annihilation: Conquest event.  Find out why Nova made many critics’ "Books of the Year" lists in this great jumping-on point!
