Wow! That some really good artwork!

I'm starting to feel a little sorry for the old Canuck head.

I'm sticking with my previous prediction. Marvel is doing a big [frick] You to the whole death, return cliché, and Wolverine doesn't die.

@ ManCalledSting

Nah, the writers and everyone have already said he's going to die. I would be with you if it was just the title, but its more than that. They've clearly been building toward it.

With comics, they are constantly looking for the next big name to kill, and its just Wolverine's time. Also, with everything he has survived, removing his healing factor is the ONLY way to do it.

He's going down. No question. The real question is how long will he be gone?

I'm guessing between 1 and 2 years.

I like how Death was upset that he didn't kill off Sabretooth for her
SCURVYDOG619 - 8/28/2014, 11:41 AM
So this story ends up with Logan making a last stand at Silver Fox's cabin...

A nod to continuity. How refreshing...

I thought just the inked version looked good but those colours are amazing too.

They die then they come back. Same mouth wash, different cheek. Dull.
ManCalledSting - 8/28/2014, 11:46 AM
CornDogBurglar: I get that, and I can't really disagree, since it's really been the trend the past few years. If it's a big surprise like I'm guessing, of course the writers and execs are gonna say he dies. I'd love it if he doesn't die, and I think it'd be poetic.
TelaVizion - 8/28/2014, 11:46 AM
Remember, this was kinda set up a few years ago when we found out that he's been actually dying in the comics. Some chick kept bringing him back after he fought his demons (including the Grim Reaper). In that story, that was going to be the last time that chick would give him his life back after death.

I think he'll be back sometime next year. The Marvel Universe depends too much on him for him to stay gone.

PsychoManiacJacky: What's that all about?

@ CorndogBurglar - normally dead characters would be back by the next their next film...but as Marvel are shutting out FOX on the old comic front...

I wonder if we won't see him back till Marvel has the rights back for that would be a long death...
ManCalledSting - 8/28/2014, 11:48 AM
If he does actually die, they will bring him ack when promotion for Xmen: Apacolypse starts up.
TelaVizion - 8/28/2014, 11:48 AM
I still think he'll come back with a name change based off of that comment Shang Chi made.
ManCalledSting - 8/28/2014, 11:50 AM
Wasn't the "Marvel is shutting down Xmen and FF to [frick] Fox" just a stoopid rumor? If not, Marvels lose, since Singer is one of the few who didn't really follow canon to much, and isn't limited to the comics.

I just love all these ads and and java and stuff... nothing here seems to work right because of them.
Dunejedi - 8/28/2014, 12:09 PM
I'll be glad to be free of the Wolverine abuse for a year or however long it is. He's entirely too ubiquitous. Give people a chance to miss him.
ManCalledSting - 8/28/2014, 12:10 PM
Captquirk: It's being worked on man, be patient. This place is still the best collection of our beloved geeky news.
slashsnikt - 8/28/2014, 1:46 PM
art so good im gonna cry!!!!
seems so sad

captquirk - 8/28/2014, 2:08 PM
@mancalledsting, I can appreciate being capitalistic, but all this stuff is really bogging down, not to mention I have to be sure my cursor is nowhere on the page when it opens, because then I have video expanding and eating more bandwidth. At least give us a chance to turn it off?
robometrallador - 8/28/2014, 2:09 PM
the art is mother[frick]er max incredible
rabid - 8/28/2014, 2:18 PM
He won't die. He'll appear to die, and return as Old Man Logan in time for the next giant crossover event.
Bl00dwerK - 8/28/2014, 2:42 PM
What's more tired than character deaths? People repeating it every time...
ManCalledSting - 8/28/2014, 2:51 PM
CaptQuirk: I'd say contact Nate, and let him know your specific issues. He'll help out how he can.
Jackraow21 - 8/28/2014, 3:24 PM
@rabid, if that happens I will be thrilled. I love Old Man Logan.
staypuffed - 8/28/2014, 4:01 PM
I'm looking forward to this.
marvel72 - 8/28/2014, 4:42 PM
old man logan was i think the last great wolverine story,i hope this is just as good.
loki668 - 8/29/2014, 2:16 AM
Watch them pull this off as the "death" of an identity.

pointman - 8/29/2014, 3:16 AM
Mcniven is an allstar penciler. One of today's greats, but no gimmick marvel can come up with, killing him, changing his gender, replacing him with his dirty blonde pretty boy son, nothing can undo the damage 15 years of bryan singer films have done. Without a doubt the books have suffered and we can't blame it all on Claremont leaving. The books have followed the movies since 2000 and they have taken a steady plunge ever since.
pepe - 8/29/2014, 3:28 AM
Dude will be back
