WOLVERINE: NOT DEAD YET

TWENTY years ago, a drunken, evil Scotsman called McLeish was the best killer in the world -- until the man called Logan killed him in Hong Kong Harbour. Today, Logan returns home to his East Village apartment -- to find a corpse murdered in signature style leaking into his bed, and a bomb on his bedside table.

Somehow, McLeish is alive, and has left both his mark and an assassination device for Logan to find. McLeish has had twenty years to plan how to kill Logan for what happened in Hong Kong -- and McLeish, who knows Logan to be the nearly immortal mutant once codenamed WOLVERINE by the Canadian Secret Service -- thinks Logan is still in possession of an unbreakable skeleton. Which he isn't. Which means he's easier to kill now than ever before...

100 pages, $14.95 US, published by Marvel Comics.

Published by DC Helix, February 4 1998.

Collecting the first three issues of the critically-acclaimed series into a trade paperback, thereby presenting the first complete tale of TRANSMETROPOLITAN -- the return of the cranky, miserable and epically unpleasant journalist Spider Jerusalem to the vast, senseless and truthless City of the future, a place where everything is permissible and no-one knows what year it is. A place where lies are news and Truth is obsolete. Until Spider Jerusalem starts writing again.

LAZARUS CHURCHYARD

A four-hundred-year-old ex-terrorist and paranoid drug fiend engaged in a horrible life's work; he's wearing an indestructible, immortal body, and all he wants to do is die.

Just your average English boy with all the wrong kinds of luck.
