Now that Young Man Logan has returned to the Marvel universe proper, fans now want to know how the character came back to life. Marvel Legacy #1 only really showed that he was alive and the short backup stories from various comics just show him roaming around the world, just missing important events like Captain America being frozen again and Jane Foster's cancer kicking into high gear.
Worry not true believers, as Charles Soule, the writer who killed Wolverine, will detail how the character returned in The Hunt for Wolverine #1. Soule will be joined by Defenders and Iron Man artist David Marquez for the 40-page one-shot, while his Death of Wolverine collaborator Steve McNiven draws the issue's cover.

Here's what Soule had to say about the project:
"Steve McNiven and I took on the incredible task of killing Wolverine back in 2014 - it was one of my earliest projects at Marvel, and such a huge opportunity. Intimidating, tricky, all of that - but ultimately, I think we created a book (alongside Jay Leisten, Justin Ponsor and Chris Eliopolous) that we're all really proud of. There's really only one project that could top it - being part of the story that brings Logan back! The Hunt For Wolverine is just the opening chapters of a mystery that will reach all sorts of cool hidden corners of the Marvel Universe, and will tell a story that will hopefully have us looking at Logan in an entirely new way."
Four more one-shots are planned after The Hunt for Wolverine in May, each with a different creative team and genre. Adamantium Agenda will be an action/adventure tale, Claws of the Killer will dabble in horror, Mystery in Madripoor (because Wolverine always goes back to Madripoor) is a dark romance, and Weapon Lost will be a noir tale. No creative teams for these one-shots have been announced.
The Hunt for Wolverine starts on April 25.
