Wolverine Annual #2
November, 2008

Appearances:
Wolverine

Synopsis:
Pg1: New Mexico, 1938
People are digging a new well for water, but a terrible noise destroys their eardrums.
Pg2-pg18pn4(of 5): New Mexico, now
Wolverine wanders into a New Mexico town looking for a beer, but he can’t find anyone around to sell him one. He looks around a bit and is attacked by a giant coyote-monster, who’s roar destroys his eardrums. He stabs it and it runs off, and once his healing factor repairs his ears he looks for people. After finding a lot of dead bodies, he comes across a house where someone is singing. She’s deaf, but she tells him a story anyway.
Pg18pn5-pg20pn4-FB: New Mexico, 1938
The deaf lady as a young girl could find water. She leads some men to a spot and when they start digging, a giant coyote-monster roars and destroys all their eardrums. They quickly re-bury the thing.
Pg20pn5(of 6)-pg21pn1: New Mexico, now
The old lady continues her story.
Pg21pn2(of 5) -FB: New Mexico, June
The town has run out of well water, so a geologist has come by to find more.
Pg21pn3-pg22-FB: later
He picks out the spot where the lady had found the monster as a girl, and she begs him not to drill, but he does anyway. The monster is let loose and starts killing everyone in town.
Pg23-pg29: New Mexico, now
Wolverine puts on his suit and hunts the coyote-monster. He finds and disembowels it, but there’s a child inside.
Pg30-pg31-FB: old west
The boy’s Native American family was massacred by cowboys, so he prayed to a Navajo spirit and was granted a means for revenge by becoming a giant coyote-monster.
Pg32-pg35: New Mexico, now
Wolverine puts the kid out his misery and lets people know that the monster is gone. Once help arrives he wanders out of town.

References:
Wolverine is wearing his Astonishing suit. Since the recent Flashback was in June, I’m assuming the main story occurs in July.

Similar to last year's Wolverine Annual: Deathsong, this was solicited as Wolverine: Roar #1, but neither the cover nor indicia have ‘Roar’ on or in them. It does, however, say Annual #2, so I’ll suggest the abbreviation W@ 2.

A breakdown:

W@ 2 (30-31)-FB: old west
W@ 2 (18:5-19:1)-FB: 1938
W@ 2 (1:1-1:2)-FB: same day
W@ 2 (19:2)-FB: same day
W@ 2 (1:3-1:4)-FB: same day
W@ 2 (19:3-19:5)-FB: same day
W@ 2 (1:5-1:6)-FB: same day
W@ 2 (20:1-20:4)-FB: same day, 1938
W@ 2 (21:2-22)-FB: June(late, maybe a Monday)
W@ 2 (21:3-22)-FB: July(early)
W@ 2 (2-18:4): shortly afterwards
W@ 2 (20:5-21:1): same day
W@ 2 (23-29): same day
W@ 2 (32-35): same day

Wolverine does not appear in any FlashBacks. The intermixing of the 1938 stuff is purely intellectual, no characters will get any listing from them.
