Cet automne, Marvel Comics donnera le coup d’envoi d’une nouvelle initiative intitulée MARVEL LEGACY. Marvel annonce un retour aux sources, à l’ancienne numérotation des plus vieux titres de son catalogue, des récits qui seront des points d’entrée idéals…un accent mis sur les personnages iconiques mais sans oublier la nouvelle génération du Marvel NOW.
Bref, « de l’espoir, du plaisir, du fun, du sense of wonder » !
Marvel a dévoilé une salve de 52 (!) titres par le biais de couvertures teasers rendant hommage à une illustration passée. La numérotation et les équipes créatives n’ont pas encore été révélées.
Tom Taylor restera aux commandes de la série All-New Wolverine et fera équipe avec un nouveau dessinateur, Juann Cabal (Elektra).
Tom Taylor : "Daken and Laura have had a fractious past. Though, that might be putting it mildly, given they’ve tried to kill each other. But as seen in our recent Immune storyline, Daken and Laura are now quite close. Laura is one of the few people that Daken has genuine affection for. They are brother and sister.
« They’re both quite different. Daken is a very smooth individual and supremely confident, but he’s prone to anger and not afraid of killing. Laura is more reserved, calculating and precise. She’s also more compassionate. At the heart of it, I’d say Laura has more empathy. »
« The Facility is abandoned and serves as a reminder of everything Laura endured there. It’s a painful return, but a stunning one due to the art of Juann Cabal. Visually, Juann doesn’t gravitate towards the straightforward and linear. He’s always up for trying something new. And this has meant I’ve been looking to play to those strengths and think outside the box. It’s great when you get a chance to jam with an artist like this. »
