From time to time Outright Geekery brings you a slanted and biased opinion on some trivially specific topic of geekery. We call it Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot.
As the unique medium that they are, comic books can tell stories in very distinct ways, even within the medium itself. While the majority of comic book stories are 5-6+ issue arcs, amongst the long-form tales can be found single issue gems that shine all on their own in self-contained wonder. These are the best single issue stories starring Wolverine.
I miss him. I’m not ashamed to say it. Despite my whining about so many Wolverine comic books being on shelves prior to his death, I miss the little runt. Researching this article reminded me of just how many really cool Wolverine stories there have been over the years. But, in the end, it was easy to pick these top single issue stories. So, without further ado, he’s still the best, we have the proof, and SNIKT, in Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot: Single Issue Stories – Wolverine.

For the most part, prediction articles like these have become more of a series of vague, ‘big-bullseye’ statements that can be easily supported no matter what happens, or, worse, sure things that couldn’t possibly go in any other direction, than anything coming close to a true prediction. Predictions should be risky. So, I’m going to try to stare a bit harder into my crystal ball, go way out on the limb, and get some big-time prognostication going on. And 2015 is full of so much awesome that there’s a lot of stuff to cover, and plenty of predictions to make. I’m only going to cover comic books and comic book films in this article, but I may get into other 2015 predictions later.
