WOLVERINE: WEAPON X PROSE HARDCOVER
Written by MARC CERASINI


Cover by GREG LAND & RICHARD ISANOVE


Author Marc Cerasini (O.J. Simpson: American Hero, American Tragedy), has seen the New York Times Best-seller list. Now, he turns his gaze to the debut of MARVEL PRESS, the new prose imprint for the House of Ideas, by telling the story of Weapon X. This all-new adult-fiction prose novel relates the cruel story of Logan's transformation into Wolverine, as seen through the eyes of his tormentors.


As Logan manages to free himself from his captors, a brutal wave of violence affects all those involved. From the bloody aftermath of Logan's transformation, all involved in the Weapon X program endure their own personal change... via guilt, ambition, and humanity. Can anyone survive the carnage of this bioengineering team's twisted dream? Chances are slim, as the lines between man, beast, and monster are blurred for all the players in this closed experiment.
