Flip through the covers for the final issues as the hunt concludes!
This August, the final issue for each HUNT FOR WOLVERINE limited series will hit stands, concluding this breathless chapter in the frantic search for one of the most fearsome super heroes in history.
In WEAPON LOST #4, ADAMANTIUM AGENDA #4, CLAWS OF A KILLER #4, and MYSTERY IN MADRIPOOR #4, the long Logan labyrinth will finally be unraveled, leaving those who seek Wolverine reeling as they contend with the past, present, and future of the Weapon X.
Get an exclusive first look at the covers for each series’ issue #4 below, along with editor Jordan D. White‘s take on what to expect as we uncover more in the deadly puzzle that is HUNT FOR WOLVERINE.
HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: WEAPON LOST #4 cover by Giuseppe Camuncoli, Roberto Poggi, and Federico Blee
“Charles Soule has cooked up a fun detective story for this series, with Daredevil and his investigative team on Logan’s trail. They definitely find something interesting…but not something they’re gonna like.”
HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: THE ADAMANTIUM AGENDA #4 cover by Giuseppe Camuncoli, Roberto Poggi, and Val Staples
“Logan’s new Avengers pals made him a promise that now they’re being called on keep. Tom Taylor really came up with a super hero adventure with some great twists and turns—I don’t know that anyone would guess where this series would end up! But it’s a helluva ride!”
HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: THE CLAWS OF A KILLER #4 cover by Giuseppe Camuncoli, Roberto Poggi, and Carlos Lopez
“Killers versus zombies—what a fun concept! No matter who wins…well, we win for getting to watch it! You can tell Mariko Tamaki is having fun torturing these guys!”
HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: MYSTERY IN MADRIPOOR #4 cover by Giuseppe Camuncoli, Roberto Poggi, and Morry Hollowell
“With this series shining a spotlight on the ladies of the X-Men it probably won’t shock you to learn that it will have a huge impact on the X-Men at-large…but it will shock you what that impact is! Jim Zub is doing something I’ve been hoping for for a long time…”
This August, secrets are revealed in HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: WEAPON LOST #4, HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: THE ADAMANTIUM AGENDA #4, HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: THE CLAWS OF A KILLER #4, and HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: MYSTERY IN MADRIPOOR #4!

Charles Soule and David Marquez unravel the mystery!
On April 25, writer Charles Soule and artist David Marquez present HUNT FOR WOLVERINE #1! Reaching across space, time, and all that seems possible, a mystery surrounding the death and life of Wolverine begins to unravel in this oversized one-shot.
Providing the first piece of a mystery that will leave no corner of the Marvel Universe untouched, the RETURN OF WOLVERINE begins here. Just as the X-Men have finally come to terms with Logan’s death, they learn a terrible secret. Old wounds will be re-opened, truths questioned, and an epic quest begun. The earliest clues to the mystery of Wolverine’s return are laid down here…who will solve it first?
Hunt for Wolverine #1 Cover by Steve McNiven
“It was an honor and a privilege to write ‘Death of Wolverine’ back in 2014, and even maybe a bit of a surprise, considering I hadn’t been writing for Marvel that long at that point. So, back then I was mostly concerned with landing the story well, giving the amazing Steve McNiven cool things to draw, and giving Logan a fitting sendoff. That said, I’d be lying if I didn’t start thinking about ways to get Wolverine out of his adamantium tomb almost as soon as I put him in it,” explains Soule. “The main goal with HUNT FOR WOLVERINE #1 is to set up a huge mystery about the return of Wolverine from the dead. We’ve seen hints, we know he’s around, but how did it happen? What has he been up to? Is the person we’ve been seeing actually Wolverine, or is there something else going on?”
“Naturally, given both that this story leads directly from ‘Death of Wolverine,’ and since Charles—the writer of ‘Death of Wolverine’—is also writing HUNT FOR WOLVERINE, I took a look back at that series to get myself reinvested in Logan’s world,” says Marquez. “But most of all, I’ve been a life-long Wolverine fan, so I always have my own understanding of the character and his story to pull from.” The artist sums it all up: “Wolverine is just so damn cool.”
Hunt for Wolverine is just a piece of the puzzle…
“Wolverine has always been a man of mystery…from his past to his powers, from his motivations to his mortal enemies, every answer has only ever led to more questions. And now, with Wolverine seemingly alive again, his apparent resurrection has people guessing once again. The X-Men want to know how. And why? Is there a reason he has not contacted them? His enemies, who thought they were free of him forever, need to start looking over their shoulders again. And there are plenty of people, both friends and foes, who would have liked to study his adamantium skeleton and his mutant healing factor more closely,” notes Marvel Comics editor-in-chief, C.B. Cebulski. “Will they finally get their chance? Well, they all have to find him first. So the HUNT FOR WOLVERINE is on! Who will eventually get to him? Does he even want to be found? And will they like they discover?”

Is Logan truly back? This May, the hunt continues across the Marvel Universe!
Wolverine is back…or so it seems. Ever since MARVEL LEGACY #1, we’ve gotten glimpses of what appears to be Wolverine popping up across the Marvel Universe. But is it really Logan?
For a character with as rich a history as Wolverine—even though he sometimes couldn’t remember it all himself—telling the tale of his potential return can’t be contained to just one series. In April, THE HUNT FOR WOLVERINE #1 one-shot will be released, and then in May, four different four-part series will debut that will continue the story. As Wolverine’s past comes back to haunt many a mutant, each story will harken back to an old school adventure.
The event is orchestrated by HUNT FOR WOLVERINE and DEATH OF WOLVERINE writer Charles Soule, with a bevy of talent attached to the various titles. The four series are:
HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: WEAPON LOST (#1-4)
Written by Charles Soule
Art by Matteo Buffagni
HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: ADAMANTIUM AGENDA (#1-4)
Written by Tom Taylor
Art by R.B. Silva
HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: CLAWS OF A KILLER (#1-4)
Written by Mariko Tamaki
Art by Butch Guice
HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: MYSTERY IN MADRIPOOR (#1-4)
Written by Jim Zub
Art by Chris Bachalo
Check out a gallery of covers from the four series:
Said series editor Mark Paniccia, “I’ve been holding my tongue, just waiting to announce this project and team of ultra-talented creators. While these stories all reveal clues to the larger mystery behind Wolverine’s return, the writers all have some pretty huge moments planned that will have X-MEN fans talking and debating for some time to come.”
Major Marvel heroes like Daredevil, Kitty Pryde, Spider-Man and Iron Man, will become involved in the story, as they try to track down Logan and figure out his secrets. Each series will also contain its own distinct genre and mystery: WEAPON LOST will be a noir/detective story, ADAMANTIUM AGENDA more action/adventure focused, CLAWS OF A KILLER fits its title with a horror style, while MYSTERY IN MADRIPOOR is a dark romance.
Charles Soule and David Marquez unravel the mystery this April!
The sound rings across the universe…and can only mean one thing: the return of Wolverine!
He’s been popping up in some of your favorite books lately; holding an Infinity Stone, keeping his secrets close. But his return has been an unsolved mystery—until this April, when writer Charles Soule and artist David Marquez reveal the timeline of events that’ll lead to Logan’s shocking return with THE HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: ALPHA #1!
The 40-page issue, featuring a cover by Steve McNiven, begins the twisted tale of Logan’s reemergence. Then, this May, the story evolves into four different tales from different creative teams, each one containing its own distinct genre and mystery: action/adventure (Adamantium Agenda), horror (Claws of the Killer), dark romance (Mystery in Madripoor) and noir/detective (Weapon Lost.) And it’s all being orchestrated by the man that crafted the “Death of Wolverine” in the first place.
Soule recalls, “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 [inker] Jay Leisten, [colorist] Justin Ponsor and [letterer] Chris Eliopolous) that we’re all really proud of.” He continues, “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,” says the scribe. “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!”
THE HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: ALPHA #1 begins an epic story that will impact Marvel heroes and X-Men alike—and it culminates this summer in one of the most shocking, daring stories in Wolverine’s history! The journey—and the mystery—begins here, and you’re not going to want to miss your chance to take part in Wolverine’s return.
