Death Of Wolverine Gets Weapon Etched Foil Covers


Good puns are always welcome, and when they’re related to comics, even better. For the Death of Wolverine limited series coming up later this year (and no, it’s not a spoiler talking about how Wolverine is going to die), Marvel has come up with a cover treatment its calling “Weapon Etched Foil Covers” to spotlight the work of Steve McNiven.

Get it? Weapon Etched?

“When Steve McNiven first turned in his cover to Death of Wolverine #1, we knew we had something special in our hands,” Executive Editor Mike Marts said in a press release.  “A cover for the ages. What better way to celebrate this special cover than by giving it the special treatment. Just the other day I saw the process involved in creating this amazing cover—it’s really beautiful. It’s a fantastic way to enhance and showcase this spectacular cover that Steve has drawn.”

Marvel is anticipating high demand for these covers and the series in general but also says it will have plenty of copies for retailers to order. Death of Wolverine is exactly what it sounds like, a four-issue limited series from McNiven and writer Charles Soule that chronicles Logan’s final days as his many foes target him during his most vulnerable time. Look for the first issue this September at your LCS or on digital.
