Following his death in 2014, Logan is set to make his grand return to the Marvel universe as the publisher launches the new event series The Hunt for Wolverine from writer Charles Soule (Death of Wolverine, Astonishing X-Men) with art by David Marquez (The Defenders, Civil War II).
“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,” said Soule. “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 chapters of 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.”
“I’m really looking forward to seeing how fans start to put the pieces together,” continued Soule. “There’s a big payoff coming down the road, and all the interlocking parts of The Hunt for Wolverine build to it. The more you read, the more clues you get. It’s really fun–especially since I have a bit of a reputation in X-continuity for knocking off beloved mutants. This time, it’s nice to be part of bringing someone back!”
