Wolverine Origin HC

Wolverine Origin HC

MARVEL COMICS

(W) Paul Jenkins (A) Andy Kubert (CA) Joe Quesada

For decades, Wolverine’s shadowy past has been shrouded in mystery.

And now, in this landmark event, Marvel reveals all! The birth and childhood of sickly young James Howlett, the secrets and intrigue of his family history, the first struggle with his subconscious savagery that culminated in tragedy, and how James’ flight from everything he once knew led to the forging of the man known as Logan! Paul Jenkins and Andy Kubert, two of Marvel’s most capably acclaimed creators, unite to tell the tale that shaped mutantdom’s mightiest misfit. Collecting ORIGIN #1-6.

New Release Pick of the Week

Once and Future #1

ONCE & FUTURE #1 (OF 6)

BOOM! Studios

(W) Kieron Gillen (A/CA) Dan Mora

When a group of Nationalists use an ancient artifact to bring a villain from Arthurian myth back from the dead to gain power, ex-monster hunter Bridgette McGuire escapes her retirement home and pulls her unsuspecting grandson Duncan, a museum curator, into a world of magic and mysticism to defeat a legendary threat.

Bestselling writer Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine, Star Wars) and Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Klaus) explore the mysteries of the past, the complicated truths of our history and the power of family to save the day – especially if that family has secret bunkers of ancient weapons and decades of experience hunting the greatest monsters in Britain ‘s history!
