Back in 2014, we all through that Wolverine died in the appropriately named miniseries ‘Death of Wolverine‘. Although this is not the case because in the past six months Wolverine has reappeared, alive and kickin’, without any hows or whys. There has been hints, but mostly it has puzzled readers who want to know how it’s possible.

Well, it appears we’re going to get some answers with a new event called ‘Hunt For Wolverine’. Heroes and villains closely associated with our favourite Canadian mutant have gotten wind that he’s alive and are individual quests to find his whereabouts – something that will take them all around the world. Will they find the answers they seek? And when they do, what trouble will they bring?

Luckily, the Hunt For Wolverine Reading Order Checklist is here to make sense of everything. It contains all the details on how you can read these comics, as well as information on background reading, release dates and creative teams.

Hunt For Wolverine Structure

Unlike traditional events, Hunt For Wolverine is structured a bit differently. Instead of a core miniseries, with auxiliary tie-ins spinning out of it, Hunt of Wolverine kicks off with a one-shot then continues in four miniseries. These miniseries run parallel with each other and will lead-up to something even bigger – which Marvel is yet to reveal.

The comics involved are:

The Hunt for Wolverine (one-shot)
Written by Charles Soule. Art by David Marquez.

Weapon Lost (four-issue miniseries)
Written by Charles Soule. Art by Matteo Buffagni.

Adamantium Agenda (four-issue miniseries)
Written by Tom Taylor. Art by R.B. Silva.

Claws of a Killer (four-issue miniseries)
Written by Mariko Tamaki. Art by Butch Guice.

Mystery in Madripoor (four-issue miniseries)
Written by Jim Zub. Art by Thony Silas.

Hunt For Wolverine: Dead Ends (one-shot)
Written by Charles Soule. Art by Ramon Rosanas.

How Do I Read Hunt For Wolverine?

Marvel has given readers a few different options as to how you can Hunt For Wolverine. While readers should start with the Hunt For Wolverine one-shot, after that it’s up to you how you read it after that. You don’t have to read all of the miniseries that follows.

Each miniseries has its own tone and genre, so I recommend reading the series that appeal to you and if you’re enjoying them check out the others.
