Update: Tuesday morning Marvel Comics released Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada's variant covers to next month's Death of Wolverine #1.
Original story: Wolverine is going to die in September. It's Friday and it's late so we'll skip the joke about how long he'll actually be dead and get right to the point. Here's a Newsarama-exclusive first look at one of the issue's many variant covers to Death of Wolverine #1, this one by Leinil Yu.
