After the Death and subsequent Hunt, one of Marvel’s most idolized characters is making a comeback – and we’re not talking about on the big screen. Written by Steve McNiven and Charles Soule, “The Return of Wolverine #1” comic book promises to unveil answers to long-standing mysteries, introduce a new villain to the Marvel community, and reveal Wolverine’s newly enhanced superhero abilities – completing the three-part trilogy following “The Death of Wolverine” and “The Hunt for Wolverine.”
To celebrate the highly-anticipated comic book, a limited-time variant cover edition will be sold exclusively on eBay beginning Wednesday, September 19th for $5.99. Visit ebay.com/wolverine to get your copy. As a special treat for fans, a limited number of copies signed by Neal Adams will also be available this holiday season.
Designed in collaboration with eBay, Marvel, and eBay seller Mycomicshop, the unique cover was illustrated by comic book legend and industry icon Neal Adams. This one-of-a-kind special edition will only be available on eBay with free U.S. shipping – while supplies last.
Marvel’s Wolverine — created by Len Wein, Roy Thomas, and John Romita Sr.— first appeared in the final pages of “Incredible Hulk #180” in October of 1974. Since then, the ferocious hero has made frequent appearances in various films and television series, as well as in the form of all manner of action figures and collectibles.
“Ever since he first appeared on the comic book pages in 1974, Wolverine has become a fan favorite within the Marvel Universe,” said Sam Bright, Vice President of Soft Goods, eBay North America. “When approached about this opportunity to collaborate with legendary artist Neal Adams, we jumped at the chance to exclusively connect our 175 million buyers with this unique piece of comic book history.”
"Neal Adams is an icon, a giant among comic artists known for his unforgettable covers, and we are thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with Neal and eBay on this,” said Conan Saunders, Vice President at My Comic Shop. “Alongside the eBay-exclusive variant of Return of Wolverine #1 with cover by Adams, we will also be providing a large array of Wolverine and X- Men related collectible comics and books. Return of Wolverine #1 marks a new chapter for Wolverine, but readers and collectors will find plenty of older comics to fill in the gaps in their collections (or start new collections!)"
This special edition of “The Return of Wolverine #1” follows successful exclusive variant covers on eBay, including “Black Panther: Sound and Fury #1,” “Marvel Legacy #1,” and “The Spectacular Spider-Man #1” – which sold out in 26 hours.
