From https://www.cbr.com/wolverine-return-4-miniseries-event/

The return of Wolverine to the Marvel Universe will unfold across four separate miniseries, Marvel Comics has announced. All four series will launch in May, spinning out of April’s The Hunt For Wolverine #1 by Charles Soule and David Marquez.
 
Each title features a different creative team and will spin a tale based in a different genre, with its own separate storyline, though all will combine to tell the full story of Logan’s return from the dead. Weapon Lost, by Charles Soule (who scripted Wolverine’s death) and Matteo Buffagni will be a noir detective story; Adamantium Agenda is an action/adventure tale from Tom Taylor and R.B. Silva; Claws Of A Killer is a horror story by Mariko Tamaki and Butch Guice; and Mystery in Madripoor is a tale of dark romance from Jim Zub and Chris Bachalo.
 
“I’ve been holding my tongue, just waiting to announce this project and team of ultra-talented creators,” editor Mark Paniccia said in a statement. “While these stories all reveal clues to the larger mystery behind Wolverine’s return, the writers all have some pretty huge moments planned that will have X-Men fans talking and debating for some time to come.”

paw comments:  I understand that Wovlerine coming back would be a big deal.  I get it.  But 4 mini-series!?!?! FFS, Marvel, no.  Just no.

Marvel said no more events what they really meant was no fewer events.

I told you this months ago. Instead of tie ins plus 10 book series we get a 4+ part mini-series 12+ times in 2018.

Couple that with Avengers being a weekly title, it's a lot.

I've already cut back my titles, but I'm stoked Marquez is in this because his art is GREAT.

LOL.  I was going to guess about 50K for the first issue....dropping to under 20K by issue #4.

That said, I'm probably going to pick up Claws of a Killer, because I like Mario Tamaki's writing and hope that she gets more work from Marvel.  (me = hypocrite)

As long as the fanboys still buy them Marvel has no reason to stop doing them.

i'm a huge wolverine mark (own 1-4 and 1-150 as well as a bunch of other runs) and i'm not going to buy this nonsense. 

i don't even care that they brought him back. fine. whatever.

but make it an issue or two, then move on, not this bullshit.
