"Wolverine: Revenge," Sounds Like a Comic I Want to Read

Jonathan Hickman is a fantastic writer who has worked on a bunch of comics I have loved. Greg Capullo is an amazing artist from his time on, "Spawn," to an incredible, "Batman," run and more. They are teaming up to bring us a five-issue mini-series titled, "Wolverine: Revenge," which will--for at least one issue--have him fighting Dinosaurs in the Savage Land. In the words of that, "Futurama," clip that became a meme, "Shut up and take my money!" It is going to have one of those stupid, "Red Band," editions that feature extra pages of bloody artwork for more money (and have confusing continuity), but it is Capullo's art so no matter what it is going to be delightful to see.

The overall plot of the comic is a bit of a mystery beyond how it will, "pit Wolverine against a cadre of foes who will turn his world upside down! He’s been beaten! He’s been bloodied! And Logan only has one thought on his mind: Revenge!” With Hickman scripting, I imagine the artwork won't be the only thing to draw folks in, but a nice piece of a metaphorical tasty pie. I mean--again--Hickan, Capullo, Wolverine, and dinosaurs? I'd be shocked if Marvel found a way to mess this up and make it anything but a grand time! The first issue (regular and silly polybagged red band edition) debuts on August 21st of this year, so I know what I'm picking up at the shop without a doubt that day!
