Starting in April, The Hunt For Wolverine #1 will unravel the mystery of Wolverine’s return, seen in last year's Marvel Legacy #1

The 40-page one-shot from Death of Wolverine writer Charles Soule and artist David Marquez kicks off a series of genre-crossing stories from different creative teams

“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 Jay Leisten, Justin Ponsor and Chris Eliopolous) that we're all really proud of,” said Soule in a statement. “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,” he continued. “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!”

Then in May, following the initial one-shot, a series of four further one-shots from different creative teams will explore multiple genres, including an action/adventure story in “Adamantium Agenda”, a horror tale in “Claws of the Killer,” a dark romance story in “Mystery In Madripoor,” and finally a noir/detective tale in “Weapon Lost.” 

“This is a game changer,” said series editor Mark Paniccia. “Hunt For Wolverine #1 has a stunning revelation and the four books that spring from it will each have a mind-bending, status quo changing reveal by amazing talent that I can’t wait to announce.”

The Hunt For Wolverine #1 is due out on shelves April 25. Here’s the full solicitation:
