I was just reading this week's Comic Shop News, and you won't believe what it said!
Remember Ultimate Wolverine Vs. Hulk? We saw two issues of it and then it stopped. Time went by, then more time, then the whole thing became a joke about lateness and the problems with using TV writers to do comic books.
Well, according to Comic Shop News, Damon Lindelof says he has finished the script for Ultimate Wolverine Vs. Hulk # & 4, and should finish #5 in the next couple of weeks.
I kid you not! Seriously! This is not some kind of August Fools joke.
Of course, no mention is made of the art being done. I think Leinil Francis Yu has moved on to other projects, so who knows when he'll be available to do that part.
Marvel says it won't reappear in the Previews catalog until all six issues are fully completed. (Hmmm... maybe they should have thought of that a couple of years ago, before they teased us with two issues and then took it away.) I am not sure if they will reprint the first two issues, but I bet they do. Maybe in a single-issue comic that has both issues inside it. That's what they've done with similar situations. So, don't expect it to show up in a Previews any time in 2007, but maybe this time 2008 we'll see issue #3 become available for orders.
