Writer: Warren Ellis
Artist: Kaare Andrews

From Marvel: “Something is causing the children of an African village to be born mutated. Something in the woodland outside the village. Something they don’t talk about. But now, whatever it is, it’s being hunted, and the X-Men are trapped between the hunters and the hunted.”

In stores December 29, 2010.

Another long wait for the next issue is this series, but I must say, this is great, great Wolverine appearance…

From Marvel: “The return of the Illuminati! Marvel’s super-secret brain trust has reunited because someone is trying to put the Infinity Gauntlet back together. Who is it and will the Avengers be able to stop them in time? And what does any of this have to do with the Red Hulk? Plus, is there a little romance brewing? Another blistering blockbuster chapter from Marvel’s premiere super hero team Bendis and Romita Jr. Plus: another illustrated chapter of the oral history of the Avengers.”

Wolverine is very much a bystander in this rather weak Illuminati tale that will undoubtedly lead to Infinity Gauntlet II or equivalent…

From Marvel: “THE FUTURE IS A FOUR-LETTER WORD: Tokyo burns with the genetic heat of the final light. Can Generation Hope tame it, or will the X-Men have to snuff it out? The first battle for the future of mutantkind comes to a climax, with Bio-titans fighting between the sky-scrapers when hope and despair come to blows. The first arc of the most-anticipated new book of 2010 concludes! Part 3 (of 3)”

In stores December 29, 2010.

I picked this one one up last week, though it seems most stores will be releasing it this week instead.

That said, not a bad supporting appearance for Wolverine…
