Rest of the Rest: Second Coming of Dark Wolverine

Life continues to be crazy, so please bear with as I try to keep up…

Two more Wolverine appearances from last week and two from earlier in March that I missed…

X-Men: Second Coming #1 (Preview)
Writers: Craig Kyle and Chris Yost
Pencils: David Finch
Inks: Matt Banning

From Marvel: “MANY WILL BE WOUNDED. SEVERAL WILL DIE. The climax of four years of X-Men stories is the X-Event of 2010! What started in HOUSE OF M with the Decimation of mutantkind and erupted with the first new mutant birth in MESSIAH COMPLEX finishes here. In the epic crossover SECOND COMING, Cyclops’ faith pays off when Cable returns to the present with Hope, the girl he believes to be the mutant messiah. But will she be the savior or destroyer of mutantkind? We may never know, as she is the target of an initiative for mutant eradication unlike anything they X-Men have ever experienced. Many will be wounded. Several will die. Is Hope worth it?”

X-Force gets revealed to the rest of the X-Men in brutally awesome fashion.

After watching Wolverine tear through the window of a van moving at high speed, I was left to wonder just how good X-Force could have been if David Finch had been drawing it all along…

In stores March 31, 2010.

Dark Wolverine #84 (Preview)
Writers: Daniel Way & Marjorie Liu
Pencils: Guiseppe Camuncoli
Inks: Onofrio Catacchio

From Marvel: “SIEGE BLOCKBUSTER TIE-IN!! PART 2 OF 3 Daken has been given glimpses of the life he could have—as well as the lives he might destroy—and the time for a choice is finally at hand. Will he become a force for good…or reign as a king in Hell?”

Wolverine cameos in a flash of Daken’s memory, but the story focuses on Daken’s flawed nature and narcissism.

If you’ve enjoyed this run, then you will definitely enjoy this issue…

In stores March 31, 2010.

Spider-Woman #7 (Preview)
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Artist: Alex Maleev

From Marvel: “The startling conclusion to the first story arc begs the question: Can Jessica Drew be an Agent of S.W.O.R.D. and an Avenger? What will the new direction of Jessica’s life cost her? Brought to you by the Eisner award-winning team of Bendis and Maleev.”

I completely missed this Wolverine appearance from mid-March (hat tip to Comusiv) that features the New Avengers providing an assist to the Skrull-hunting Spider-Woman….

In stores March 17, 2010.

I would be remiss if I did not mention the briefest of brief Wolverine appearance from the same week — Wolverine as a memory of the M’Kraan Crystal in Realm of Kings: Imperial Guard #5 (preview), again thanks to the eagle eyes of Comusiv…

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