The name's Wolverine.
And I rock the telly.
I'm half Joe Camel and a third Fonzarelli.

Good news for fans mourning the upcoming Temporary Hiatus of Wolverine for The Bargain Price of $4.99 an Issue in September; Marvel just announced a follow up series titled Death of Wolverine: The Logan Legacy. The series appears to be made up of single issue stories from different creative teams looking at how various characters deal with a world without a Wolverine. Death of Wolverine writer Charles Soule said of the series in an interview with Marvel.com:
Think of the DEATH OF WOLVERINE as an inciting event, one thing that has seismic-level effects on the lives of a great deal of the Marvel Universe. We'll start in THE LOGAN LEGACY by examining those effects on people close to Wolverine, but over time, we'll range far and wide to see what sort of black hole Logan's death actually leaves.
Ok, seriously, what is the deal with Marvel event comics and earthquake references? New X-books editor Mike Marts recruited some talent from his time at DC Comics editing the Bat-books for the series:
I cast out for some familiar voices—writers I worked with in my previous job on the Batman titles [for DC Comics]. Great writers like James Tynion, Tim Seeley, Kyle Higgins, Ray Fawkes and Marguerite Bennett. Each writer brings something unique to this grand tapestry we’re putting together.
And Marvel creative consultant Poochie had the following to say about the philosophy behind the Logan Legacy:
One, Logan needs to be louder, angrier, and have access to a time machine. Two, whenever Logan's not on screen, all the other characters should be asking "Where's Logan"? Three--
We cut him off, having heard enough. Here's the solicits for The Logan Legacy, which will run from October into December, which means Wolverine may very well be back from the dead before the series wraps up:
