WOLVERINE: THE ORIGIN (2001) #1 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: ORIGIN #1
Cover by Joe Quesada; Paul Jenkins/Andy Kubert
* THE SCOOP: This is it! Paul Jenkins and Andy Kubert deliver the origin you've all been waiting for!
* THE STORY: For years, one camp of comic book readers demanded the story be told, while another begged us not to! Now, almost 30 years after he was created, Wolverine - the most enigmatic and popular character in comics - will finally have the story of his origin told for the first time! Who is the mysterious man known only as Logan? Where does he come from? How did his powers first appear? This special six-issue series will finally answer the question: who is the man known as Wolverine?! Throw away your expectations and prepare to enter the unknown!
JENKINS SPEAKS: "He's spent all of these years wondering where he came from and who he is. This story will now give us insight as to why he became the person he is - where he comes from and how he was shaped as a person," Paul Jenkins explained. "So if you take Wolverine and boil him down to his essence - forget the events, forget the adamantium skeleton, forget about the healing factor and all that sort of stuff - and take him as a person only, he's the kind of person who like the rest of us questions himself, wonders what it was that shaped him. He's a metaphor for that sort of existential question that we all ask ourselves all the time. He is the comic book version of that question. By the time we get to the end of this story, we'll answer enough parts of that question that he can go of in search of himself even more than before. It reclarifies and it actually reenergizes him as a character."
* THE CREATORS: No one examines the psyche like Paul Jenkins (PETER PARKER: SPIDER-MAN, INHUMANS, SENTRY, etc.), so we're teaming him up with master X-Men artist Andy Kubert (ULTIMATE X-MEN)! We even got our own EIC, Joe Quesada, to draw the covers!
* THE FORMAT: Each chapter of this six-issue series will be 32 pages, with ads - printed on glossy stock paper with a cardstock cover.
