Update: And now we know another one — a Point One issue of Alpha Flight, coming in May, co-written by Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente and illustrated by Ben Oliver.
Original Story: A second wave of “Point One” issues are coming from Marvel Comics, as confirmed with the publisher today. Among the May solicitations released today was Daken: Dark Wolverine #9.1, which was not part of the original crop of new reader-friendly Point One issues announced by Marvel in late October.
In a conference call in early November, Marvel acknowledged the possibility of more Point One issues, with Senior Vice-President Sales & Circulation David Gabriel saying, “If these go over well, and the retailers are happy with them, and if it works, we might do another wave of these.” More information on which titles will be involved, beyond Daken, should be coming soon.
