This is a thread to speculate on the 2007 project by Brian K Vaughan (Runnaways, Ultimate X-Men) and Edward Risso (100 Bullets, Batman: Broken City)

Links to linework for the book

I think that BKV looking to write a book called Logan, not Wolverine, has alot of promise. While the two preview pages shown here have Logan in costume theres a third found HERE(scroll down.) that shows what looks like a cover design of Logand and a woman in a kimono standing near a pile of skulls. I really hope we get an exploration into the character of Logan moreso than that of Wolverine. I want this book to be what Origins should be.

Only one thing could make me interested in the Wolverine character. I second the motion in hope that it's more about pre-wolverine. Only BKV would know exactly what the general comic fan population would want from a Wolverine mini.

Damnit.

CBR talks to Alex Alonso about Marvel Imprints, which includes talking about BKV's "Logan" mini.

Preview Pages are also included. The article is at the end.

I don't care what Marvel or anyone else says....Marvel Knights stories are barely different from regular Marvel stories, especially anymore. I totally don't get the point of giving them a special name.

They've said before that it's stories that are a little more violent or something, but what you see in those stories is the same amount as in non-MK imprints.

So yeah, there isn't a difference.

I'm picking this up for Eduardo Risso if nothing else.

Also, Jeriemiah Vedder, the samurai/japan aspect... I like it in a conceptual sense. Wolverine as Clint Eastwood makes sense, the lone guy who goes in and kicks everyone's *** for a girl. But Clint Eastwood's spaghetti westerns were based on Akira Kurosawa's samurai flicks - YOJIMBO and THE SEVEN SAMURAI. So taking Wolverine to the source, i.e. samurai stories, makes a lot of sense, and turns his claws into a sword. Samurai and Japanese culture is very disciplined while Wolverine is continually combating a violent, savage, animal side, which is heightened in that cultural atmosphere.

That said, most people use it as an excuse to give Wolverine a sword and cut up some Yakuza.

I like adding the samurai characteristics, but I don't enjoy him in Japan acting like he belongs in that culture, it really doesn't feel right to me
