In the back of recent Marvel Comics, Wolverine has been turning up and missing the people he was meant to be there to see. First hanging around with an Infinity Stone in Marvel Legacy, then in the back of Captain America, and then Thor. We’ve told you he will get a lot more handsy, dominating the upcoming Infinity Countdown: Prime one-shot.
But he is also getting his own book in April, Hunt for Wolverine, a four-part series by Charles Soule, the man who killed him off in the first place, and David Marquez, who is just great. And it will reveal exactly how Wolverine came back anyway. I reckon Lando thawed him out.
“Steve McNiven and I took on the incredible task of killing Wolverine back in 2014–it was one of my earliest projects at Marvel, and such a huge opportunity. Intimidating, tricky, all of that–but ultimately, I think we created a book (alongside Jay Leisten, Justin Ponsor and Chris Eliopolous) that we’re all really proud of,” said Soule. “There’s really only one project that could top it–being part of the story that brings Logan back! THE HUNT FOR WOLVERINE is just the opening chapters of a mystery that will reach all sorts of cool hidden corners of the Marvel Universe, and will tell a story that will hopefully have us looking at Logan in an entirely new way.”
The first issue will be 40 pages long, and then in May becomes four different tales from different creative teams, each one containing its own distinct genre and mystery: action/adventure (Adamantium Agenda), horror (Claws of the Killer), dark romance (Mystery in Madripoor) and noir/detective (Weapon Lost.)
“I’m really looking forward to seeing how fans start to put the pieces together,” continued Soule. “There’s a big payoff coming down the road, and all the interlocking parts of THE HUNT FOR WOLVERINE build to it. The more you read, the more clues you get. It’s really fun–especially since I have a bit of a reputation in X-continuity for knocking off beloved mutants. This time, it’s nice to be part of bringing someone back!”
Oh and apparently things will never be the same again. Again.
“This is a game changer,” added series editor Mark Paniccia. “HUNT FOR WOLVERINE #1 has a stunning revelation and the four books that spring from it will each have a mind-bending, status quo changing reveal by amazing talent that I can’t wait to announce.”
