Journey: The Adventures of Wolverine MacAlistaire was an independent comic book created by William Messner-Loebs about Michigan frontier life in the 19th century.

Publishing history[edit]

Journey was published first by Deni Loubert under the banner of Aardvark-Vanaheim. The 13th issue featured a crossover with Jim Valentino's normalman. After fourteen issues, the series moved to Fantagraphics. There were twenty-seven issues in all.

There was a Journey story in Fantagraphics' Anything Goes! #5 (Oct. 1987). A sequel to the original series, Journey: Wardrums (Fantagraphics, 1987 – 1990), was billed as a six-issue mini-series, but only two issues were published.

A new Journey story was included in the one-shot Many Happy Returns (published by About Comics) in 2008.

In July 2008, IDW Publishing released a trade paperback collecting the first 16 issues. In 2009, a second volume was released, containing the next ten issues.
