He was there best there was at what he did. And what he did wasn't always pretty. But he was a solid soldier, a good friend, a formidable opponent, a cunning strategist and a respected teacher. I am, of course, talking about Wolverine aka Logan aka James Howlett.
On Wednesday, 9/3, East Side Mags hosted a memorial service for the (soon to be) fallen hero while also commemorating the release of Death of Wolverine #1 by Marvel Comics.
We presented a eulogy and even had a guest appearance from Spider-Man who shared some his professional and personal thoughts from his previous experiences with Logan.
Spidey brought along a set of dog tags, given to him by Mr. Howlett himself.
It was a heart-felt moment and ESM dedicated its famed chalkboard wall to those who wanted to leave a message for the dearly departed. The chalkboard wall will remain up all week for those to record their memories and share their thoughts with the community.
We lost a great hero. His death will surely leave scars and have ramifications across the entire Marvel Universe. Time will tell what those ramifications will be - in the form of a series of upcoming comics centering on some of the people Wolverine was closest to and how they deal with his untimely demise.
Don't forget - only issue #1 has been released!!! To get the full story, get issues #2, #3 and #4 as they come out right here!!!
