Wolverine is undoubtedly one of the most popular Marvel characters. In 2014, Marvel killed off Wolverine in 4 issues, titled Death of Wolverine.

The story of Death of Wolverine is about exactly what you think it will be: the death of Wolverine. This review mentions his death, but will not contain spoilers as to how he dies.

The story was a bit of a let-down for me. I expected the death of such a pivotal character to feel epic and powerful, but the story left me feeling as though his death was unimportant. It just didn’t carry any weight for me. His death felt mediocre, especially knowing how often Marvel brings back characters from the dead.

Steve McNiven’s art is wonderful and did a better job of enticing the reader than the actual story did. I would have given Death of Wolverine two stars if not for the artwork. Here’s an example:


If you want to read Death of Wolverine, you just need to have some pre-existing knowledge of who Wolverine is, which I believe most people already have. Honestly, I don’t really feel as though this is an important comic to read. Wolverine dies, and nothing else about the story has any impact on anything else.

I’m sorry that this is such a short review. There’s really nothing else I can think to say about this collection. The title explains exactly what happens, and the story itself is pretty underwhelming.

Have you read Death of Wolverine? What did you think?
