Return of Wolverine #1-5 Complete Cover Checklist

What does the return of Wolverine mean for the Marvel Universe? How will his return effect Old Man Logan and X-23? Starting this month, we will start getting these answers and more, as the final chapter in Wolverine’s death-and-return arc concludes in the long anticipated Return of Wolverine. The initial five issue run will tell of his return, and be followed by a regular, ongoing series for the “resurrected” mutant. There is absolutely no doubt that big things are on the way for the newly-back-from-the-dead Wolverine.


This is part one in our series on the death and return of Wolverine:
