Pont One Brings Rob Williams on Daken: Dark Wolverine


Huge congratulations to Rob Williams on his first ongoing Marvel gig! I’ve been following Rob’s work for years over at 2000 AD, and he’s a fantastic writer, so I’m pretty stoked to see him getting such a big gig! I have to admit that I’ve only read one comic with Daken in it, so I’m looking forward to trying something new!

From the press release:

Marvel is proud to announce that this May, rising star writer Rob Williams takes the reins of Daken: Dark Wolverine with an all new, POINT ONE issue great for new readers wanting to get into the mind of Marvel’s newest crime boss. In one fell swoop, Daken single-handedly executed a ruthless takeover of Madripoor’s criminal underworld and now he’s in pursuit of a new prize – the City of Angels! Too bad that Wolverine and his fellow Avengers are ready to stand in his way!

“I’m so excited to have Rob Williams coming on board Dark Wolverine. His sharp ear and sardonic wit, combined with his knack for twisty, noir-inspired plots are the perfect combo for Daken to take full advantage of,” explains editor Jeanine Schafer. “We’re ramping up for a blow-out year – Daken has his sights set on a new status as a true kingpin, pulling all the strings, and stopping at nothing to get what he wants. Lots of gorgeous men and women, double-crosses and the constant threat of going over the edge. What more could you ask for in a great noir?”

With Williams onboard as new ongoing writer with this introductory POINT ONE issue, a new era for West Coast crime begins as Daken sets out make his own kind of killing in Hollywood! Discover the makings of Marvel’s next great super-villain and his grand plans for the future this May in Daken: Dark Wolverine #9.1!

Plus, no X-Men fan can miss the all-new X-Force Archangel action figure, available exclusively at Marvel.com. One of the most popular members of the red-hot Uncanny X-Force team, this is the only way for you to get the first figure of Archangel in his all-new, all-deadly uniform. Please visit www.marvel.com/archangel for more details.
