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.

Spider-Man's Eulogy Part 2

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!!!
