Back in 2014, Wolverine died. You can read about how that went down here. In comic books, death rarely sticks. With X-23 taking on the mantle of Wolverine and Old Man Logan (from an alternate future) appearing in the present, it seemed as if the regular version of Logan was gone. Then he somehow appeared in Marvel Legacy #1 in September 2017.
With an Infinity Stone in his possession and popping up at the end of various Marvel Comics, it hasn’t been clear how he escaped his Adamantium prison or how he returned from the dead. Now it’s time to get some answers.

The Hunt For Wolverine #1 by Charles Soule (Death of Wolverine, Astonishing X-Men) with art by David Marquez (The Defenders, Civil War II) will reveal the timeline of the events that lead to Logan’s return. Along with answers, several new questions will arise.
Soule, the man responsible for writing Wolverine’s death, made the following statement:
‘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. 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 chapter
sof 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.’
April’s #1 issue will contain 40 pages. In May, the story continues in four different stories from different creative teams. Each will contain 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).
