Joe Quesada on WOLVERINE: WEAPON X:

JM: So the challenge then becomes, I would guess, to make Wolverine titles “different” from each other.
Wolverine: Origins had the specific high concept of Wolvie, now with full memory, dealing with menaces from his past.
What’s this one?


JQ: This series is about “THE NEW.” Wolverine: Origins deals with his past—past villains, past relationships and how he deals with them in the present. In Wolverine: Weapon X, we see Wolverine going to new places, fighting new enemies and developing new relationships. Also, in terms of tone, it’s a much leaner, more stripped down version of Logan than in other titles. You won’t see Logan wearing yellow and fighting aliens in this book. We’re going for much more of a street level feel here. And from what I’ve seen so far, this series is really going to turn some heads.

Better than I coulda said it myself. Thanks, Joe. Full text here.

Just when you thought Dash Bad Horse was already pushed as far over the edge as he could be, along comes the dramatic conclusion to "High Lonesome" to push him a little farther. The Crazy Horse Casino is being robbed, and a drugged-out Dash is forced to help in order to protect his greatest secret. But it's not just his secret that's on the line here – his life, his sanity and perhaps his very soul face dire consequences.

Chances are there'll be a fair amount of stabbing involved in this one.

The Vertigo panel. That's me on the far left. Looking at this now, I can't understand how my big ass didn't fall backwards off the stage and completely end my career right there in one big ball of shame and broken vertebrae.

Yeah, I'm really proud of my run on Ghost Rider so far. I've brought in machine-gun toting nurses, redneck cannibal ghosts, mass-murdering ministers and zealots, warrior angels, nunchuck nuns, all new Ghost Riders from around the world, an all new Caretaker, former Ghost Rider Danny Ketch, a disgruntled, hook-handed ex-cop with a hellfire shotgun and a dude with a giant eyeball for a head. I'd say that's a pretty good start.

Wow
