We all know A Wolverine is back, but is he really THE Wolverine? The hunt for Wolverine kicks into high gear in May with four new mini-series from Marvel.
Orchestrated by HUNT FOR WOLVERINE and DEATH OF WOLVERINE writer Charles Soule, a star-studded cast of talent have teamed up to unravel Wolverine’s secrets. Avengers No Surrender writer Jim Zub, She-Hulk writer Mariko Tamaki, All-New Wolverine writer Tom Taylor, The Amazing Spider-Man artist Matteo Buffagni, X-Men Blue artist R.B. Silva, Black Panther and the Crew artist Butch Guice, and Spider-Man/Deadpool artist Chris Bachalo will join forces for four series that form one interlocking epic adventure, each one containing its own distinct genre and mystery: Weapon Lost (noir/detective), Adamantium Agenda (action/adventure), Claws Of A Killer (horror) and Mystery in Madripoor (dark romance.)
“I’ve been holding my tongue, just waiting to announce this project and team of ultra-talented creators,” said series editor Mark Paniccia in a press release. “While these stories all reveal clues to the larger mystery behind Wolverine’s return, the writers all have some pretty huge moments planned that will have X-MEN fans talking and debating for some time to come.”
Featuring classic Marvel characters from Daredevil to Kitty Pryde to Spider-Man to Iron Man, major Marvel heroes will become part of Wolverine’s mystery as they try to track down Logan and figure out his secrets. But with answers come more questions…and with reveals come even more mysteries. Every clue leads to another twisting road and each story will provide fans with another tantalizing piece of the puzzle that will lead readers closer to finding out the real truth!
It is interesting this is playing out across four mini-series instead of a main book, but perhaps this is the way to approach the story instead of having multiple tie-in issues in other books that simply frustrate readers and collectors.

Is everyone ready for the return of Wolverine, or has his many appearances as Old Man Logan and in other places already ruing the storyline for you?
