There’s a lot to like about the upcoming debut of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” in theaters (including the ridiculously cool “Wolverine” movie trailer), but one of the best things about the recent surge of comics-based films is the fact that their new, live-action stories tend to prompt new, print-medium stories, too.
This time around, everyone’s favorite Canucklehead will get the spotlight as the May 1 release of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” approaches. And much like they did with the debut of Matt Fraction’s “Invincible Iron Man” series timed to the release of the “Iron Man” movie, Marvel Comics recently announced a pair of new titles featuring Wolverine that will hit shelves a month before the film hits theaters.
After the jump, you can read more about the new Wolverine titles and get a peek at the covers for each project.
First up will be a new, ongoing series titled “Wolverine: Weapon X” written by Jason Aaron (”Ghost Rider”) with art by Ron Garney (”Amazing Spider-Man”). According to Marvel, the series will explore Logan’s ties to the mysterious Weapon X program introduced in the “X-Men 2″ movie and explored further in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” “Wolverine: Weapon X” will kick off in April 2009.
