Rest of the Rest: Eight Is Enough

[DiG here. My apologies as I continue to play catch from last week — this should have been posted last weekend — more backlogged posts coming as soon as I can get to them.]

X-23 #1 (Preview)
Writer: Marjorie Liu
Pencils: Filipe Andrade and Nuno Alves
Inks: Jay Leisten and Nuno Alves with Sandu Florea

From Marvel: “X-23 has spent her short life being used by those in power, from the military to the X-Men. But when she is forced to confront a being who can control her life with nothing but a thought, will X-23 finally learn how to fight — not for others, but herself? Guest-starring NYX!”

Marjorie Liu, Filipe Andrade and Nuno Alves kick off an intriguing X-23 one-shot, guest starring Wolverine…

Incredible Hulk #608 (Preview)
Writer: Greg Pak
Pencils: Paul Pelletier
Inks: Danny Miki

From Marvel: “FALL OF THE HULKS Conclusion! Years ago, the Hulk helped found the Avengers — and then almost immediately smashed his way into becoming one of the Avengers’ greatest nemesis. Now in the wake of the Intelligencia’s crippling attack on the World’s Mightiest Heroes, Bruce Banner’s actually leading a group of Avengers — but can he be trusted any more than his big green alter ego was back in the day? Plus, the reveal of the master plan of the Leader and M.O.D.O.K. and the true motivations of Skaar, Son of Hulk, in the stunning conclusion of the ‘Fall of the Hulks’ and the shocking kickoff to the upcoming ‘World War Hulks’ blockbuster!”

Surprise finale promises an interesting follow up in ‘World War Hulks’. Note, that while ‘Hulk’ #21 covers the same ground, Wolverine does not appear in that issue…

Doomwar #2 (Preview)
Writer: Jonathan Maberry
Pencils: Scott Eaton
Inks: Andy Lanning & Robert Campanella

From Marvel: “Doctor Doom’s latest power play has the Marvel Universe up in arms. Wakanda has been conquered and Storm faces execution in the next 48 hours — unless the X-Men, the Fantastic Four and the two Black Panthers can rally to the rescue! With Doom only minutes away from stealing enough Vibranium to help him conquer the world, T’Challa faces the most dreadful decision possible: let Doom win…or let Storm die!”

Wolverine is featured prominently, but it is Doctor Doom who steals the shows…

Hercules: Fall of an Avenger #1 (Preview)
Writer: Greg Pak & Fred Van Lente
Art: Ariel Olivetti

From Marvel: “When the most beloved Olympian of all time falls, who will mourn him? Acclaimed INCREDIBLE HULK artist Ariel Olivetti joins writers Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente for a two-part mini-epic that marks the end of an era and the beginning of something utterly unexpected for Hercules, the Lion of Olympus. Bring your hankies — and your golden adamantine maces — as an all-star cast including Thor, Namor, Namora, Snowbird, Alflyse, Bruce Banner, and of course, Amadeus Cho send off the Son of Zeus with shocking tales, smash-tastic action, bawdy tomfoolery, and heart-rending drama that will change the course of Marvel’s marvelous mythological milieu… forever!”

Hercules’ wake with Wolverine, surprise, surprise, drinking…

Nation X #4 (Preview)
“Dooptopia”
Writer: Peter Milligan
Art: Michael Allred

From Marvel: “All the pieces fall into place as this final issue concludes with a bang! Namor has never taken orders from anyone before, so why does he take them from Cyclops? Where does Emma get all those Jimmy Choo’s? And when a mystery strikes Utopia, who does Cyclops send to solve it? DOOP!”

‘Nation X’ boasts four short stories per issue. This month, Wolverine appears in two: the bizarre Doop mystery and a brief cameo in the Namor tale…

Spider-Man & The Secret War #4 (Preview)
Writer: Paul Tobin
Penciler: Patrick Scherberger & Clayton Henry
Inkers: Terry Pallot with Henry & Scherberger

From Marvel: “When all the heroes and all the other villains were busy playing the Beyonder’s game, only one man took himself off the game board in order to challenge the Beyonder. That man, of course, is Victor von Doom. But what made both Spider-Man and Wolverine go along for the ride? And what is the terrible cost for the ticket?”

Odd finale to this throwback miniseries gives Wolverine some significant exposure…

Prelude to Deadpool Corp #3 (Preview)
Writer: Victor Gischler
Art: Phillip Bond

From Marvel: “Witness the birth of the most important super hero team ever in a universe-spanning event that will rock the month of March! Wade Wilson has been tapped to save the Universe, and to do that he’s going to need help. Enter: The sexy-but-insecure Lady Deadpool! The devious-but-lovable Headpool (a.k.a. the Zombie Deadpool Head)! The bratty-but-brilliant Kidpool! And the irascible mutt known as Dogpool! Individually, they’re, well, kind of messed up, but together, they’re the unstoppable force know as DPC. ”

Another alternate reality, this time with Wolverine as a dog… <sigh>

Share your thoughts on the EIGHT Wolverine appearances in the comments below.

And don’t forget to add any Wolverine other appearances from the week that I may have missed (that still means you, Comusiv!)…

Facebook comments:

  1. Spider-Woman #7 – Wolverine talks. Wolverine slashes. Wolverine fills his obligatory guest appearance spot in the final issue of a series.

    Realm of Kings: Imperial Guard #5 – Seriously, the ugliest, most disgusting Wolverine ever (and I don’t mean from the artists’ skills). Seeing what they’re doing with The Fault and what lies inside almost makes me wish they’d do some sort of a series based solely in that world.

  2. Thanks Comusiv. I knew you would have my back!

    Does this cover Wolverine appearances from last week and the week before?

  3. They do. Those titles were from two weeks ago. There was nothing missed from last week.

  4. Woohoo!

    BTW, do you read every Marvel comic every week? You are uncanny at finding the appearances I’ve missed over the years…

  5. I don’t read every comic. Normally I pick up the Previews and go over what’s coming out. From there anything that sounds like it has an outside chance of Wolverine appearing in it I make a note to check when it comes out. My comic dealer actually will put any on hold for me that he might find and will let me check through titles. Sometimes though I just get lucky that Wolverine appears in a title I already pick up (like Imperial Guard).

    Plus your website also helps me out. There have been books that I would’ve completely missed if not for you and the other contributors here (Incredible Hulk 606 for example). It’s an excellent resource for me and I’m happy to contribute.
