NYCC 2023: Marvel Reveals a First Look at the Momentous 'Sabretooth War'

Attendees of today's Marvel Comics Showcase were among the first to see new covers and pages of 'Sabretooth War,' kicking off in 'Wolverine' #41 this January.

Today, during the Marvel Comics Showcase at New York Comic Con, fans in the audience were the first to see an exciting first look at the highly anticipated SABRETOOTH WAR event! 

During the livestream panel, host Ryan Penagos (Marvel Creative VP) was joined by WOLVERINE writer Benjamin Percy to surprise fans with a glimpse of what’s to come in the definitive Wolverine and Sabretooth story. 

Wolverine and Sabretooth have one of bloodiest feuds in all of pop culture history and this January, their rivalry reaches a brand-new peak in SABRETOOTH WAR, a ten-part epic coming to Percy’s run on WOLVERINE. SABRETOOTH WAR will begin in WOLVERINE #41 and culminate in the landmark WOLVERINE #50.

Having shepherded the character through the Krakoan age, it’s finally time for Percy to pit Wolverine against his greatest foe! Joining him for the occasion will be the award-winning author of The Changeling and The Devil in Silver and the writer behind Sabretooth’s own journey of the last few years, Victor LaValle. They’ll be teaming up with two of the industry’s hottest artists, Cory Smith and Geoff Shaw, to deliver the definitive Wolverine and Sabretooth story.
