Let’s be honest, we know when a beloved comics character dies, it’s pretty unlikely that that character is going to stay in the ground. But as of September, in the case for fan favourite Wolverine, readers are going to get the chance to enjoy Marvel’s stubborn attempts of actually making it happen!
Death Of Wolverine is a four issue limited series, written by Charles Soule and with art by Steve McNiven, and is billed as Marvel’s comic event of the summer – to kick things off, the companies Chief Creative Officer and legendary artist Joe Quesada has produced the first issues pretty incredible variant cover, detailing the titular hero getting his first major kicking of the series.
A press release from marvel describes the series as a “…[chronicle of] the last stand of the Wolverine as he faces down his deadliest foes. Left without his healing factor, the indestructible killing machine must come to terms with his newfound vulnerability. And when word gets out that the Wolverine is mortal, villains from Logan’s past and present set their sights on their greatest enemy. After being the best there is at what he does for over a century, the day has arrived where his best will not be good enough…!” Blood in the water, indeed.
Pre-orders for this book have already made this the most-talked about comics event of the summer – we’ll do what we can to review it the second we lay our hands on a copy. And you lucky bleeders will get a chance to see the thing for yourself when it lands in comic shops on September 3rd!
