Mike, I just wanted to make sure I have everything straight. You've already solicited 56, 57's another stand alone Noirverine story, 58's a fill-in emergency issue from Lapham and 59 starts the Brubaker epic?
If the Lapham issue is for emergencies, is there an emergency I didn't hear about? Would it be okay for me to see if 58 can start the multi-parter? Cause if Lapham's is just a stand-alone fill-in, that's the sort of thing that can stay on the shelf indefinitely. Like in theory even until after Brubaker's first arc is done.
Not that there will be any reason to continue publishing this title after Brubaker's first arc is done. Cause in the last issue Wolverine gets killed by a humpback whale. But then we get the following five part limited series by Jeph Loeb and a series of fill-in artists, based on an idea by JMS:
THE DEATH OF WOLVERINE
PART ONE: "YOU'RE KIDDING, RIGHT?" STARRING SPIDER-MAN
PART TWO: "THAT'S DISGUSTING!" STARRING THE ASTONISHING X-MEN
PART THREE: "OH, THAT POOR WHALE!" STARRING PETA
PART FOUR: "I THOUGHT HE SMELLED BAD BEFORE!" STARRING THE NEW AVENGERS
PART FIVE: "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! AWESOME!" STARRING DEADPOOL
