Where is the cover to Wolverine #3 (Limited Series), you ask?

Well, the short answer is it’s after the jump. The longer answer is that the cover just didn’t work for me in the same way the first two did.

And for that matter, it didn’t match up to the tremendous cover for Wolverine #4 (Limited Series) by Frank Miller and Josef Rubinstein

And while we are wrapping up the Wolverine Limited Series, let me remind folks out that continuity was so important in comics back in 1982 and 1983, that Wolverine didn’t appear in Uncanny X-Men for three months to make the chronology work just right. And for two of those months, Wolverine didn’t appear in a single comic.

Can you imagine?

Two whole months without a single Wolverine appearance.

After the jump is the aforementioned cover to issue #3 and the most jaw-dropping final panel I have ever seen in comics…

First up is the promised cover to issue #3 by Frank Miller and Josef Rubinstein. Not a bad cover. Just not iconic enough to make my list of truly classic Wolverine covers…

However, the final panel of Wolverine #4 (Limited Series), also by Frank Miller and Josef Rubinstein, is as shocking a moment as I have ever had reading comics…
