Jeph Loeb and Simone Bianchi’s first issue of Wolverine has sold out at Diamond, according to Marvel. The sellout also includes the black and white variant cover.
Marvel says they have no plans to go back to print for another printing, but as we’ve seen before, give it a few days and the company will probably change it’s mind.
Loeb considers this his first major project for Marvel, and is extremely pleased with the news.
“The biggest hugs go out to my two contributors,” says Loeb, “my long time pal and astonishing artist Ed “Ed” McGuinness and then there’s the real superstar of this arc, Simone Bianchi. Getting the chance for the world to see Simone’s amazing talents — both in color and in black & white — is such a joy. His enthusiasm for this story and our working friendship explodes on every page. What I want the readers to know is that YES! There are answers to all the questions raised! And Yes! There will be a final confrontation between Marveldom’s awesomest and savage enemies Wolverine and Sabretooth. The best is still to come!”
If you really want to grab a copy of Wolverine #50, ask your retailer nicely as s/he may have a copy stashed behind the counter for emergencies.
