Here’ the first look at Adam Kubert’s art for the Upcoming Wolverine #8 out on December 30th. This issue will the Legacy #350th single issue of old Canucklehead’s solo title and Marvel is marking the occasion by making it a double-sized issue featuring two stories about Logan by Benjamin Percy with art by Adam Kubert as well as Victor Bogdanovic.
In a recent interview with NEWSARAMA Kubert had the following to say about his contribution to the issue:
Nrama: Visually, what was your favorite aspect of Wolverine #8/#350?
Kubert: Well, for me it’s always the story that dictates how it should be told. And this one (written by the talented Ben Percy!) had a definite James Bond vibe to it…. very fast-paced and reckless. So, I wanted to tell the story in a way that would best suit this.
Without giving anything away, I decided to use a lot of panels with quick cuts to help speed up the action and ratchet the drama. To help pull this off, I decided to use a sixteen-panel grid for the entire story. This allowed me to mess with the timing and create a cohesive feel from beginning to end.

Percy had this to say earlier in the year when the issue was first announced:
Listen up, bub. Wolverine is my favorite comics character, and I’d consider myself lucky to write him at any point in time, but especially now. The Dawn of X has brought about a rich, exciting, and inarguably historic era for the X-Men,” Percy said. “This is a milestone moment, and now we have a milestone issue to mark the occasion—Wolverine #350. That’s a number to celebrate.
“Even as we look back and value the wealthy arsenal of stories already available to us, we can also look forward, because there’s so much rotgut whiskey and berserker mayhem and pop-clawed SNIKT-ing to come. What are we doing to celebrate the occasion? We’re giving you an oversized issue, offering even more action-packed, mystery-filled pages to shove in your eye, drawn by both Adam Kubert and Viktor Bogdanovic. And appropriately, we’re delivering a story that celebrates the past even as it looks toward the future.”
“I’m not going to reveal too much about what’s behind the curtain, but get ready for an enemy I’ve been geeked to write since I first got the job. Legacy House is coming. And X-fans…know that we’re not only headed to Madripoor, but we’re bringing back a character you’ve all been missing: Maverick! So as soon as the dust and blood settles after X of Swords, be sure to get your SNIKT on with Wolverine 350.”
