Wolverine Gets ‘Back to Basics’ in New Epic Collection Edition

Wolverine’s long, convoluted history is far from “basic”, but the newest edition of his Epic Collection series attempts to get back there.

Wolverine: Back to Basics Epic Collection (originally published in 2019) collects issues #17-30 of his original solo series, as well as 1989’s Wolverine: The Jungle Adventure by Walt Simonson, Mike Mignola, and Bob Wiacek, and the Wolverine/Nick Fury: The Scorpio Connection graphic novel by Archie Goodwin and Howard Chaykin from the same year.

The bulk of Back to Basics consists of Goodwin, John Byrne, and Klaus Janson’s seven-part “Acts of Vengeance” tie-in and Jo Duffy, Bill Jaaska, and Joe Rubinstein’s four-part “Lazarus Project” storyline that sees Logan lose his memory once again in a foreign, dangerous land.

Peter David and Gene Colan also collaborate on Wolverine #24’s “Snow Blind” and Duffy and John Buscema tell a Wolverine-style Jungle Book story in #25.

Wolverine: Back to Basics Epic Collection contains 464 pages for a suggested retail price of $39.99.
