Media Release — Marvel is thrilled to announce that Dark Wolverine is a hit series amongst fans and critics! This Dark Reign tie-in sheds light on the devious anti-hero Daken, the estranged son of Wolverine! The superstar writers Daniel Way and Marjorie Liu have teamed with fan favorite artist Giuseppe Camuncoli to bring you an action-packed series centered on the cunning and cruel Daken! Daken has joined Norman Osborn’s Dark Avengers, a devious masquerade of villains pretending to be heroes, but his motives for joining are shrouded by deception. Will Daken’s clandestine conduct cause turbulence for Osborn’s Dark Avengers? Can Daken be trusted? Whose side is he really on?
Critics and Fans are buzzing about the Dark Wolverine series!
“Way and Liu develop a wonderful satirical attitude for Daken that enhances the quality of this character…Giuseppe Camuncoli’s pencils are exciting to follow…Teamed up with Onofrio Catacchio’s inks, the images explain all the anger and frustration Daken is facing…Readers should expect an amazing clash if dear old dad decides to show up.” – Frank Stapleton, BrokenFrontier.com
“Daken totally blew me away with the premiere of his own title Dark Wolverine with its more adult themes and storyline of the man literally living in his father’s shadow…Of all the Dark Reign storylines at the moment, Dark Wolverine is the one I am enjoying the most.” – Antony Ellis, thecomicaddiction.com
“Giuseppe Camuncoli does fantastic work. His art has always leant itself to characters looking more evil and twisted than others draw them, and that highlights the writing…Here, you know Daken is a bad guy, so Way and Liu ramp that up by focusing on his intelligence and skills of manipulation to turn him into the ‘wild card’ in Osborn’s group.” – Chad Nevett, ComicBookResources.com
“Way and Lui have done a great job of making Daken a more intriguing character, and much like Clint Eastwood’s Man With No Name in A Fistful of Dollars it’s difficult to deduce whose side he’s on, or whether his influence on certain parties is premeditated or instinctive.” – Carl Doherty, Alltern8.com
