Last year's Marvel Universe vs. Punisher miniseries by writer Jonathan Maberry and artist Goran Parlov is getting a spiritual successor in the form of Marvel Universe Vs. Wolverine, starting in June and with a similar premise — Marvel's heroes have been transformed into less than friendly forms, and it's up to Logan to take them down. The series is four issues, with Maberry writing and Punisher MAX artist Laurence Campbell on art.Marvel's full press release follows: Last year, New York Times bestselling writer Jonathan Maberry blew you away with a sadistic vision of a Marvel Universe ravaged by cannibalistic heroes – and this June Maberry is back with Marvel Universe Vs. Wolverine #1 (of 4)! Joined by fan favorite artist Laurence Campbell (Punisher MAX), the two turn Wolverine into a one man slaughter machine against Earth’s Mightiest, who’ve all been infected by a lethal virus, transforming them into savage beasts. Logan has always been the best at what he does, but does he have what it takes to eliminate the vicious hordes of crazed Marvel heroes on his own?
“Ever since we finished Marvel Universe vs. Punisher last year, I’ve wanted to return to that world and tell more of the story. And there is so much to tell,” said Maberry. “So many stories. And this is a great jumping-on point.”
It’s an unforgiving battle for survival as Wolverine slices and dices his way through your favorite heroes and villains in Marvel Universe Vs. Wolverine #1 (of 4), on sale this June!
