Mania's Wolverine Update
© Marvel Comics
Marvel Comics has released the cover, variant cover, and a few panels from the upcoming second issue of the DEATH OF WOLVERINE. My question to you Maniacs is, will you read Charles Soule’s story one issue at a time or will you by the trade?  

Press Release: It’s the story that has the whole world talking, and today Marvel is proud to officially unveil your first look at DEATH OF WOLVERINE #2 – the second chapter of the blockbuster four-issue event beginning in September! Witness the end of the best there is at what he does, as he makes his valiant last stand against scores of deadly foes.
Superstar creators Charles Soule & Steve McNiven unite to take Wolverine back to the choked and claustrophobic streets of Madripoor, as the once indestructible killing machine paints the town red! And a deal gone wrong that sends an injured Wolverine into a battle he can’t hope to win! But who’s pulling the strings? Among the perilous streets of the world’s most dangerous city stalks a villain who seeks Wolverine’s head – and has some interesting plans on how to claim it!
Each issue of Death of Wolverine is oversized and features stunning Weapon Etched Holo Foil cover treatment. Exclusively crafted for this series, each foil-wrapped issue of Death of Wolverine is poised to leap off comic shop shelves come September!
Time is running out for the Wolverine. The epic end of the world’s most famous X-Man is upon us, and no fan can afford to miss out on the spectacular DEATH OF WOLVERINE #2 when it hits comic shops and digital devices in September!

Galactus. Wolverine is to Galactus what a neverending gobstopper is to a 6 year old.

This reeks of a cash grab by Marvel.  I wish they would just write good storylines instead of this event comic dreck.  They killed off Mr. Fantastic in the 90's and Cap int he 2000's....Wolverine is their top cash cow.  There is no way he won't be back inside a year.  This story is for the 6 year olds who haven't figured out that this is not a permanent thing.  The ones who haven't seen it over and over again and are jaded as a result.

The whole reason I stopped collecting was because at the time I stopped, every other cover was a special die cut scratch and sniff foil cover, and all women had thong outfits and jello mold boobs.

Also, Mr. Fantastic was dead, Spidey lost his mind (from his parents returning), Batman had a broken back, Green Lantern was insane, and Superman was dead.  Even Aquaman had lost a hand!  This...barely registers with me.

I think almost every x-man has been killed at one time or another

 I dunno.......trying to keep the pull list at a minimum, but this one has a few things going for it.  Enough for me to pick up a trade anyway.  Madripoor has been the setting for a few of the best Logan stories, and Steve McNiven's art is up to the task.  He is still at the top of his game right now.  Nothing looks rushed or glossed over, and his blacks are an excellent eye catching tool.  The covers are okay, but not enough to jump off of the spinner rack into my hands.  It may simply be a sly story that needs to be told, with the powers that be at Marvel putting their gimmicky spin on the finished product to promote it.
