Fan-Favorite Artist Jock Will Write And Draw A New Savage Wolverine Arc
Highly acclaimed artist Jock will be stepping in to write and do art for a few issues of Savage Wolverine. The series seems like it will have several A-List creators coming in to tackle a few stories featuring the Canadian berserker until Frank Cho comes back to take the reigns again. Cho recently wrapped a five issue arc, and next week will see the former Avenging Spider-Man team of Zeb Wells and Joe Madureira coming in for a three issue arc featuring Spider-Man and Elektra. After that, fan-favorite artist Jock will do a three issue stretch by himself.
USA Today unveiled a look at Jock’s art along with the announcement. The artist will come in to tell a far-flung futuristic sci-fi story that sees Wolverine crash-landed on an alien planet having to adapt and survive. Jock talks about the idea he wants to explore:
Logan has the power of regeneration as we know, but he’d only ever be able to regenerate his own cells. So what if thousands, maybe even millions of years in the future, the world around him has continued to evolve, and he’s left literally, a Neanderthal man? He always chose to be the outsider, but now he has no choice. He doesn’t fit in.
The artist is wanting to write and draw more books, and he thought Wolverine was a good step. He loves all the extreme things you can throw at Wolverine:
He’s just totally over the top. You can draw him as gnarly and violent and extreme as you want, but it’s never enough! I love characters that can handle extremes, and he’s definitely an extreme.
You can read the interview in its entirety by clicking here. So Savage Wolverine has gone from Cho, to Wells and Madureira, to Jock. That’s an incredibly strong line-up. The book has been trying a lot of different things and really gives the teams a chance to do something completely different with the character. What do you think about Jock tackling three issues? Will you be picking this one up
