If there's one thing people criticize about Marvel Comics, it's the lack of attention the company pays to Wolverine and his fans. That changes today. After years of neglecting the furry Canadadian mutant, declining to make him an obnoxious Mary Sue character that is the leader of the X-Men, the baddest ass character in the Marvel Universe who can beat up any other character, and the moral center of the entire Marvel superhero community who every other character looks to for advice, guidance, and approval, Marvel has finally, FINALLY decided to give Wolverine some respect. They will be releasing Wolverine: The Adamantium Edition in June.

The book, weighing in at 720 pages and 16 pounds, will collect some of the most seminal Wolverine stories in history, including:

  • Wolverine: Origin by Paul Jenkins and Adam Kubert
  • Wolverine: Weapon X by Barry Windsor Smith
  • Wolverine by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller
  • Wolverine: Not Dead Yet by Warren Ellis and Leinil Yu
  • Wolverine & The X-Men by Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo
  • And unforgettable single issue stories by Larry Hama, Mark Millar, Dave Cockrum, Jim Lee and Kaare Andrews!

Obviously, as it is about Wolverine, this represents the most enjoyable and important work from each of these legendary creators.

One day, Marvel will realize that no one wants to read stories about characters who are not Wolverine or perhaps clones or offspring of Wolverine, if we're stretching it, and they will change their name to Wolverine Comics and just publish Wolverine stories 24/7, 365 days a year. Until that time comes, this is the best we're going to get, and we should be grateful for it, because some companies, like DC or Image or Dark Horse, don't have any Wolverines AT ALL in their books! Shocking, but true. We're pretty sure those companies only remain in business because people go to comic shops and find that all the Wolverine comics have already sold out, which is to be expected because Wolverine is so awesome, and so they have no choice but to buy something like Batman or Walking Dead instead.

Here's the press release, along with some pictures of Marvel editors Nick Lowe and Sana Amanat, who should probably be fired immediately because, honestly, they're not treating a book featuring Wolverine with the respect that it deserves in these pictures:
