Marvel's Return of Wolverine miniseries will introduce a brand new costume for the revived Logan, courtesy of artist Declan Shalvey.
Shalvey will also join writer Charles Soule and artist Steve McNiven on the series to illustrate Issues #2-4.
“I've wanted to work with Declan Shalvey forever—you can ask him! I've talked to him a million times about telling a story together,” Soule told Marvel.com. “The timing's never worked out, until now, for RETURN OF WOLVERINE, and I think it's great he's come aboard. He did a new design for one of Logan's outfits in the story that I love, and he'll get to choreograph a massive battle sequence with the X-Men, too. Declan's wonderful, and he'll do a hell of a job.”
"I'm really excited to be part of this story and getting the chance to work with Charles and the absolute legend that is Laura Martin," Shalvey said. "I've always dreamed of drawing a Wolverine book someday, but never thought I'd get to be part of such an important Wolverine epic, not on a project on this level. I'm very humbled that the team at Marvel would consider having me be a part of all this. The scripts are really interesting and I'm curious to see how Charles' plans will develop. The book has been a blast to draw so far, I've never drawn so many claws in one book before! I hope everyone likes my take on all the characters as I have very big Steve McNiven shoes to fill. No pressure!"
Return of Wolverine is the final chapter in Soule's Wolverine trilogy, following 2014's Death of Wolverine and Hunt For Wolverine. Last year's Marvel Legacy #1 shockingly brought Wolverine back into the Marvel Universe, in possession of an Infinity Stone. The story continued in the Hunt For Wolverine one-shot, then spun out into four separate miniseries: Adamantium Agenda, Claws of a Killer, Mystery in Madripoor and Weapon Lost. Once the miniseries come to a close, another one-shot titled Hunt For Wolverine: Dead Ends #1 will bridge the gap until Return of Wolverine begins.
Return of Wolverine #2 goes on sale October 24.
