What If? Spider-Man vs. Wolverine
‘The Spider Who Went into the Cold’
Writer: Jeff Parker & Paul Tobin
Artist: Clayton Henry
If you’ve read the original ‘Spider-Man vs. Wolverine’ one-shot from 1987, then get ready for a surprisingly enjoyable story. And the artwork by Clayton Henry is a real treat, especially his rendering of Spider-Man’s dark spy costume.
Be advised, however, that this is more about Spider-Man than Wolverine. And as improbable as some of it may be, it still makes for a fun romp.
From Marvel (Preview): “In 1987, Peter Parker followed Wolverine to Russia, who was on the trail of a friend working for the KGB. Realizing that the KGB would eventually kill his friend, Wolverine wanted to put her out of her misery. Peter tried to stop him, but accidentally killed the friend instead. Haunted by his actions, Peter fled home into the waiting arms of Mary Jane. But WHAT IF…Peter never went home? WHAT IF…the Spider never came out of the cold?” On sale January 30, 2008.
