Wolverine & The X-Men #1 & #2 Covers Revealed!

Michael Wirth 09/27/2011 Reviews

Everyone is well aware that the current X-Men story, Schism, ends with the mutants of the Marvel Universes choosing sides, which will lead to a new X-Book, Wolverine & The X-Men. Marvel hasn’t released too many details about the new book, besides the characters that will be one Wolverine’s team. But they are being kind enough to show us the covers of the first two issues, with drool-inducing art by Chris Bachalo.

This October, Wolverine heads up a brand new crew of X-Men in the over-sized debut of Wolverine & The X-Men #1!  From Marvel Architect writer Jason Aaron and fan favorite artist Chris Bachalo, this new team will have their hands full as the Hellfire Club makes their next move. With covers by Bachalo – no fan can miss this bold new era of mutantkind as X-Men: Regenesis continues in Wolverine & The X-Men #1!

Bachalo, whose first published work was on DC ComicsSandman in 1989, has done a lot of high-profile work for Marvel, including Uncanny X-Men and Amazing Spider-Man. True to his style, the work so far on Wolverine & The X-Men is outstanding. I have been a fan of Bachalo’s since his days on Generation X, so to hear him coming back to an X-title is certainly amazing.

I’m also piqued by the cover for the second issue. Though I might be mistaken but that looks like Krakoa that Wolverine is getting ready to stab. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Krakoa, so to bring back a dusty character like that… Marvel is either getting desperate, or they have something pretty awesome planned. To be honest, I’m not too worried about the Wolverine and the X-Men line. With what Jason Aaron did with Schism, I’m sure he has a good run planned out. Now if he starts pulling out characters like Eye-Scream from the depths, I’ll start to worry.
