Killing the Truth in Marvel Comics Presents #9 [Preview]

Marvel Comics Presents #9 hits stores from Marvel Comics next week, wrapping up what we're pretty sure was originally meant to be a 12-issue series but got reduced to 9. That means Marvel has to squeeze 4 parts of Wolverine's The Vigil storyline into a single issue, and they're throwing in more Wolverine for the hell of it. You can never have enough Wolverine. The creative teams here include Charles Soule, Zac Thompson, Lonnie Nadler, and Paulo Siqueira.

Marvel Comics Presents #9

Wolverine and his daughter, Rien, have gone to hell in order to kill the demon Ron Killings, and there they found Rien's mom, a woman Wolverine slept with after meeting her as a very young child. She's not doing so well.

That's probably not the reaction they were hoping for. According to Sylvie, all of this is pointless.

Marvel Comics Presents #9

Apparently you can't kill the truth because the truth is a lie or something. It's all very meta.

But it would probably be best to deal with a murderous hellbeast before contemplating the meaning of life.

And in this issue's backup story, we revisit the recent What If? comics for a story featuring cyber-Wolverine.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
