Death Of Wolverine #1Media Release -- It's already one of the most highly anticipated comics of the year, and today Marvel is proud to announce DEATH OF WOLVERINE #1 – the first issue in September's blockbuster 4-issue weekly event is about to get even bigger! Now weighing in at a whopping 56 pages, DEATH OF WOLVERINE #1 now comes packed to the gills with bonus content for the same price!

First, superstar creators Charles Soule & Steve McNiven kick off this landmark issue with the first chapter of this eagerly awaited series! Left without his mutant healing factor, witness the final days of the Wolverine as he makes his final stand, eventually culminating in his untimely end. With his back against the wall, this is one battle he will not return from. And it will take more than a mutant healing factor to repair the void left in a world without Wolverine.

Then, go behind the scenes of this landmark issue with over 20 pages of bonus content! Go from concept to finished page and see how penciller Steve McNiven, inker Jay Leisten and colorist Justin Ponsor bring writer Charles Soule's script for the creation of this issue.

DEATH OF WOLVERINE #1 also features new interviews from X-Men and Wolverine's creators past and present including Wolverine co-creator Len Wein as they all reflect on 40 years of being the best there is at what he does – and the legacy he leaves behind.

Each issue of Death of Wolverine also features a special Weapon Etched Holo Foil cover treatment that leaps off comic shop shelves and must be seen to be believed! As if there wasn't already a reason to experience the Earth shattering end of an era, no fan can afford to miss the oversized debut in September's DEATH OF WOLVERINE #1!
