Marvel will unravel the mystery behind Wolverine’s return in The Hunt for Wolverine
. The series, which is under the direction of writer Charles Soule (Death of Wolverine, Astonishing X-Men
) and artist David Marquez (The Defenders, Civil War II
), will kick off with a 40-page first issue on April 25. Steve McNiven provides the main cover and Adam Kubert provides a variant.
In May, the story will branch into four titles from different creative teams. The creative teams were not revealed, but each story will fall into a different genre:
- Adamantium Agenda (action/adventure)
- Claws of the Killer (horror)
- Mystery in Madripoor (dark romance)
- Weapon Lost (noir/detective)
Logan has been dead since 2014, when Soule and McNiven suffocated him in molten adamantium. Laura Kinney (X-23) has taken up the mantle of Wolverine, but the original has been making appearances in the background of various titles, Generations
(see "Marvel Reveals Six Artists and New Cover for ‘Generations’
"), and Old Man Logan
(see "'Old Man Logan,' 'Darkhawk,' 'She-Hulk,' 'Secret Warriors'
