With stunning art by Joseph Michael Linsner and written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray, it should come as no surprise that the first issue of Claws, a three-issue mini-series starring Wolverine and the Black Cat, has sold out at Diamond.
“Nothing could make Justin and I happier to find out that Claws #1 has sold out…the whole team has done a fantastic job creating the book and the crew at Marvel has gone out of their way to make sure a fun book like this doesn’t get lost in the crowd with so many big events going on. Thanks to the retailers, fans and Marvel for making such a dream project come true and most of all, thanks Joe Linsner…your fans have spoken!”
In Claws #1, Logan and Felicia Hardy are kidnapped and brought to a remote island where they are to be used as big game for a group of rich hunters. And the person organizing this hunt is none other thanâ€¦Kraven? But isnâ€™t he dead?
Be sure to pick up Claws #2 as Wolverine and the Black Cat navigate an obstacle of bullets, arrows, grenades, bombs, knives, rockets and giant killer robots. And then the gameâ€™s ringmaster decides to unleash the main event just to prove that there’s more than one way to skin a cat.
The first issue of this action-filled and beautifully illustrated mini-series sold out quickly. Be sure to get your copy of Claws #2 and we promise youâ€™ll be happier than the cat that caught the canary.
As a result of the quick sellout of the first issue, retailers are advised to check their orders on Claws #2 and #3.
