From Marvel: “The blockbuster Marvel comic of the year continues!! The timestream is broken and with that the Marvel Universe has fallen into utter chaos. Can the Avengers defeat Kang and even if they do, is it too late? Guest-starring EVERYONE!! Plus! Another startling chapter in the untold oral history of the Avengers by Brian Michael Bendis…!”

Wolverine again plays a minor role in this time-traveling odyssey.

Not a bad minor, mind you, but a minor role nonetheless…

From Marvel: “PUNISHMENT, part 3: Daken barely survived his encounter with Frank Castle, but that only makes him more dangerous than ever — especially when Wolverine shows up to save the day. Killing two birds with one stone has never been more appealing…”

In stores August 25, 2010.

A rather lightweight series finale that features a cameo by Wolverine near the end.

And curiously, Wolverine fails to notice Daken’s scent..

In stores August 25, 2010.

Another Wolverine cameo, “Old man. Weak bladder.” Heh.

  1. Oh man, just read road to hell and wolverine 1, I’m actually pretty excited for this. The storytelling is good again! And I like how the guy that wrote the free wolverine saga book explained dan way’s stories better than he could lol.

  2. yeah, it was weird how in the end wolverine wasn’t able to smell daken..

    @dustin wait, so are the stories in the road to hell not just previews of the first issues? if yes, then it’s a great thing i ordered one..though i won’t be able to get it until this weekend. yep, the free wolverine saga didn’t actually summarize the origins series..he just presented it in a better, more suited length..

  3. haha for sure! Yeah the road to hell comic was a prequel, not a preview, and it’s DEFINITELY worth picking up. It sets up the story really well, as well as setting up both Daken and X-23’s new books coming out, though after reading Aaron’s preview I got about two boxes into Dan Way’s Daken preview and stopped caring and set it down lol.
