Marvel Reveals the Death of Wolverine #1 Mortal Variant Cover
So Wolverine is going to die the “comic book death” this fall in the Death of Wolverine arc. Rest assured this is not the last we will see of Logan as comic book death is never really a true character death. I am confident that readers won’t have to suffer a world without Wolverine for long. Perhaps, the “Big Two” need a lesson from Joss Whedon to mix it up a bit and keep some characters dead? Just a thought.
Here is what Marvel has to say about this Death of Wolverine #1 “Mortal Variant” cover by Ed McGuinness:
It’s the storyline that has the whole comic industry buzzing, and today Marvel is proud to officially unveil the ‘Mortal Variant’ to DEATH OF WOLVERINE #1! Gorgeously rendered by superstar artist Ed McGuinness, the cover captures Logan as he reaches the end of his long life. This jaw-dropping cover can be ordered through the previously announced Exchangeability program.
Written by chart-topping writer Charles Soule and blockbuster artist Steve McNiven, this landmark limited series chronicles the iconic mutant’s grisly final days as he battles through a gauntlet of his greatest foes. Left without the help of his mutant healing factor, the once indestructible killing machine known as the Wolverine has found himself mortal for the first time in a long time.
As mainstream media buzz continues to build around this highly anticipate series, retailers are encouraged to check their Marvel Mailer for ordering and exchangeability information for this exclusive cover.
