Hunt for Wolverine - Reading Order

At the end of 2014, Marvel did the unthinkable: kill Wolverine! It would take almost four years for our favorite mutant to reappear (don’t worry so, Old Man Logan was here during that period). But before Logan could really come back, he had to be found. And this is how was launched the Hunt for Wolverine!

Per Marvel official synopsis: Wolverine is back – but where is he? Just as the X-Men have finally come to terms with Logan’s death, a terrible secret means old wounds are reopened, truths are questioned, and an epic quest begins across the Marvel Universe. But who will solve the puzzle first? Will it be Daredevil and his crack squad of investigators, including Misty Knight? Or Logan’s former fellow New Avengers, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage? Or perhaps Sabretooth, Lady Deathstrike and Daken will be the ones to track him down! With mystery in Madripoor and around the globe, the return of Wolverine will keep you guessing!

After Hunt for Wolverine and Return of Wolverine

Wolverine has always been one of the busiest X-Man, and no sooner has he made his return that you can find him in several titles:

  • Wolverine had an Infinity Stone when he came back. And the limited series Wolverine: Infinity Watch, by Gerry Duggan is a sort of follow-up to that story, for those interested.
  • Wolverine and the Hulk are back in action – and coming after the dangerous creation made in their name in Hulkverines by Greg Park.
  • Following X-Men Disassembled and his return from the dead, Wolverine joins the Uncanny X-Men from Matthew Rosenberg.

Readers have to wait a little bit for Wolverine to finally headline again his own title, written by Benjamin Percy, and launched as part of the Reign X/Jonathan Hickman’s era.
