Marvel has sent out some preview pages from the upcoming Wolverine Origin II series, due out on Christmas Day 2013! The pages and cover are colour versions of the previously released Adam Kubert pencils, but for a secret as closely guarded as Wolverine’s origin, less is probably more here.
Written by Kieron Gillen, the series is set a few years after the events of Origin. Origin II finds James Howlett running with the wolves…until something unexpected brings him back into the world he left behind. Follow the first X-Man as he finds his way back to civilization and runs afoul of someone Sinister. Someone who has just discovered mutantkind for the first time. Plus, discover the shocking secret behind James’ greatest foe! Now he must choose: is he man or is he beast?
It will come with an acetate cover (with the underlay shown below) – look it moves! – and the Sinister surprise it has in store for readers. Variant covers from Salvador Larocca and, of course, Skottie Young will also be available when the book hits the shelves.
Origin II is released on 25 December 2013 from Marvel in shops and digital everywhere.
