Nice cover, loving that suit.
Doopie - 8/12/2014, 8:16 AM
great cover but kind of reminds me of this

M3T4LL0 - 8/12/2014, 8:18 AM
I really like his new costume. Great art!

Ha! Like he won't be back in a month or two...
TelaVizion - 8/12/2014, 8:23 AM
You wish Cyke was the greatest
TelaVizion - 8/12/2014, 8:25 AM
The only negative to when he comes back is that I'm quite sure Death will return him to how he's suppose to be. Which would mean he will have no need for that armored suit.

I wish Marvel would let him keep it anyway.
TheRealRemyLebeau - 8/12/2014, 8:31 AM
Great cover art. New suit looks amazing.
InfiniteMonkey - 8/12/2014, 8:34 AM
Awesome Suit and the art is quite fantastic.

Can't wait till he dies and stays dead.

Long live the other X-Men who have not gotten the spotlight because of him.

Quesada's faces are always so awkward.
Like usually the piece can range from OK to good (or even pretty good), but the faces always make his art much worse than it is.

At least you can spot any of his art quite easily. If nothing else he has his own trademark style of awkward faces.
Nomis - 8/12/2014, 8:35 AM
Man, I hope it's CYCLOPS that deal him the Death Blow !!!

MellanRum - 8/12/2014, 8:35 AM
And damn, I hadn't noticed the neck on this one. WTF is up with that?
deepee3 - 8/12/2014, 8:41 AM
It looks like most artists STILL don't know how to draw Wolverine in the proper proportion to show his height.

Wolverine should be substantially shorter that Cyclops in the pic above.
InfiniteMonkey - 8/12/2014, 8:47 AM
I hope Cyclops castrates him with that sword. LMAO!

Just Freaking die already!
slickrickdesigns - 8/12/2014, 8:51 AM
@Dmon
LMAO.
Enphlieuwince - 8/12/2014, 8:59 AM
Love the cover and the uniform.
Bl00dwerK - 8/12/2014, 9:01 AM
Wolverine has worn out his welcome. Cyclops is the best X-Man now...
freebirdink843 - 8/12/2014, 9:13 AM
My favorite character of all time. But loved him more in the 80s n 90s before everyone started riding his junk. He will be dead for at least a year or two, but they will have books with him with past shit or something. The new suit I'm mixed, depends on the artist. Joe A def has weird faces. I have a wolverine enemy of the state(great story!!), and he jacked the face up, mask was weird looking.
Marqy47 - 8/12/2014, 9:15 AM
Hmmm .. nope ... Logan is still the best there is at what he does .. even after death he will be the best ... until he comes back. I swear, if Marvel pulls a Barry Allen I will be sooo pissed.
freebirdink843 - 8/12/2014, 9:17 AM
And I bet everyone on this site will have all four of these books. You have to pick it up, it is the first time they really killed him, gonna have great art, and there will be blood. He gonna go out with a bang. I think of scenes like the old man Logan book where they explained what happened and showed him killing all the baddies
Marqy47 - 8/12/2014, 9:18 AM
@free

He sure is the best. Wolverine Five !

PiggyV - 8/12/2014, 9:27 AM
Bone or metal claws in that pic?
Marqy47 - 8/12/2014, 9:28 AM
bone :(
PiggyV - 8/12/2014, 9:29 AM
Also, come back less of a self righteous, hypocritical whiner or stay dead. And take Storm and Beast with you. Stoopid formerly awesome characters.
PiggyV - 8/12/2014, 9:29 AM
But they aren't currently bone, are they?
freebirdink843 - 8/12/2014, 9:33 AM
@maxi, 5 returned!!!!
Superior - 8/12/2014, 9:36 AM
That cover looks cool.
Marqy47 - 8/12/2014, 9:43 AM
@piggy

Nope, not yet.
sKeemAn - 8/12/2014, 9:46 AM
I like that suit he's got on. Art is ok. Those facial expressions are gruesome.
Bl00dwerK - 8/12/2014, 9:48 AM
@PiggyV Those are metal claws, probably the ones that are built into the suit he's wearing. Wolvie isn't currently using his real claws because of his absent healing factor. He's also taking some form of medication that's preventing his Adamantium from killing him...
storyteller - 8/12/2014, 9:50 AM
They are metal, just draw to have a rough feel to them. Like these are metal claws and not just knives. Say what you will about the man but he does know how to draw the hell out of a cover.
Marqy47 - 8/12/2014, 9:50 AM
They look very bone-y .. especially on his left hand
jasonicus - 8/12/2014, 10:00 AM
How has he not died from the poisonous metal on his bones?
Marqy47 - 8/12/2014, 10:04 AM
@jas

I have to catch up on my Wolverine v6 and finish v5 before I start th Death of Wolverine
chacha07 - 8/12/2014, 10:04 AM
Maybe Jean will come and say "I never loved you, you have my permission to die" Hahaha
MakluIV - 8/12/2014, 10:21 AM
He wore a similar suit in the 80's I believe. Looks cool.
monkeyballs - 8/12/2014, 11:16 AM
"Just Freaking die already!"

LOL @iMonk! So true. Wolverine stopped being cool in 1991.
BaneNascent - 8/12/2014, 12:00 PM
What's with the Wolverine hate? Cyclops isn't even a hero anymore, Xavior died and now Red Skull has his brain. I blame Cyclops for that! Anything Joe Quesada draws ends up pretty cool. But don't let him write a single story! Every story he writes just ruins marvel a little more each time. I get the cover though, his bones are killing him. It makes sense.

Gusto - 8/12/2014, 1:06 PM
I dunno, Napolean! Make yourself a dang Joe Quesadilla!
BloodofKings - 8/12/2014, 1:24 PM
I haven't been a Wolverine fan since the days of X-Men the animated series, but you gotta admit, that's the coolest suit he's worn since then. Oh, and TankD, I swear I'm right with ya on that Jack Nicholson as Wolverine idea. He & Patrick Stewart were my first picks in the 90's for whenever they would make the live-action X-Men movie--and that was based on Nicholson's appearance in 'Wolf' too! If only somehow he could've stayed that age.
