We finally saw the "SNIKT!" in the Wolverine #72, which was Part 7 (of 8) of Old Man Logan. We know that issue #73 had nothing to do with the arc. Also, next week's issue #75 changes the title to "Dark Wolverine." I guess Wolverine had too many titles and needed a break so he handed it over to his son.
The question we all have had on our minds since issue #72 is when the heck are we going to get Part 8? I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that no one actually wants the arc to end but we're all dying to see what happens next. The good news is, Marvel has finally announced the date. Actually last week, Mark Millar posted on his forums:
Got the first few pages from McNiv......and they are McNIFICIENT! Honestly, I thought he definied Wolvie best last issue with that last page, but you will poop your pants yet again when you see page three here. As you know, the cover is one of my faves ever and you'll hopefully see that soon when Marvel release. All very exciting!!!!!!
