The Death of Wolverine is coming, and until now, Marvel Comics had only revealed (several) covers for issue #1. Today, they've released the next three covers, the "main" covers, for #2, #3, and #4. All three are penciled by Steve McNiven, inked by Jay Leisten and colored by Justin Ponsor.
The press release was also quick to point out that there are Weapon Etched Holo Foil covers for each of the four weekly issues, all shipping in September.

Meanwhile, in another and unrelated tease, Marvel Comics issued out this gif, promising a follow-up to one of the major story threads from the end of last year's event comic, Infinity. In the series, Thanos was trapped in a sort of amber. Now, the press release asks, "Who Will Rise?" implying someone possibly stepping into Thanos's role as despot, warlord, and all around not very nice dude.
