Brian Wood To Write Wolverine?

It's starting to look like it. As Jason Aaron walks on to Wolverine & The X-Men, Hulk, and that other series I've momentarily forgotten the name of; as well as Scalped; Marvel's teasers seem to suggest that the newest writer on the solo Wolverine series is going to be the man behind DMZ, Demo, Northlanders and the big superstar push of 2012. With several mysterious announcements attached to his suave utility belt as NYCC approaches, Brian Wood seems to be the next man destined for headline status in mainstream comics. Marvel have released a teaser showing Wolverine and Quentin Quire, suggesting that the switch between Aaron and Wood will happen early next year.



Aaron's said several times that he's telling one large Wolverine story during his run, and that story DOES look to be currently heading towards conclusion. While a few people think this is confirmation that Wood will be handling X-Men Legacy, for us it seems far more likely that Wolverine is the destination. I just wish I could pick out the name of the artist. It's on the tip of my tongue...

Is it Mark Brooks?

Could be. The colourist's style is so distinctive that it's hard to tell at the moment.
