Logan makes his big comeback in Marvel's Return of Wolverine #1, and he's bringing a new set of searing-hot claws with him. And, as the Party Variant cover of the debut issue demonstrates, they're for more than skewering enemies.
Drawn by Todd Nauck and colored by Rachelle Rosenberg, this variant features Logan lightheartedly demonstrating the functionality of his new claws by using them to skewer and cook steak, shrimp and sausages at his own "welcome home" barbecue thrown by the X-Men.
Say what you will about Logan, but he's undeniably resourceful. After all, who hasn't dreamed of having the ability to produce delicious shish kabobs with the flick of a wrist?

Wolverine is back and his claws get hot! So, let’s barbecue! Right?

Marvel has been building up to Logan's grand return since Marvel Legacy #1 arrived in September 2017, and given all we've learned in the past year about Logan's resurrection, his new powers and new look, it will certainly be interesting to see how all of this affects the Marvel continuity going forward. But before things inevitably get serious, it's nice to see that the X-Family are taking the time to catch up over some barbecue.
Return of Wolverine #1 (of 5) by Charles Soule and Steve McNiven arrives Sept. 19 from Marvel Comics.
