Wolverine Wednesday #52

by Ian Wells

X Lives of Wolverine #5 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Joshua Cassara | Colourist: Frank Martin | Letters: Cory Petit The curtain comes down on X Lives with a very well crafted issue, that strikes a good balance between story and action. The narration excellently explains everything that has been going on how it has […]

Wolverine Wednesday #51

by Ian Wells

There is a lot to get through this week, that should bring me up to date on the events of X Lives/Deaths. I had a delay on X Deaths #5 so I thought it would be best to review to two final issues in the next instalment. That way I can compare and contrast them. […]

X Lives of Wolverine #1 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Joshua Cassara | Colourist: Frank Martin | Letters: Cory Petit I have been really looking forward to this series since it was first announced. Right away the cover by Adam Kubert hits all the nostalgia notes for long-time Wolverine fans. Since it was announced I […]

Wolverine Wednesday #49

Wolverine #19 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Javi Fernandez | Colourist: Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit I didn’t think it was possible to get a great standalone issue in modern comics, especially in the Krakoan Age of X-Men comics we are currently in. But I am always happy to be proven wrong! What I […]

Wolverine #17 – #18 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artists: Lan Medina & Paco Diaz | Inker: Cam Smith | Colourists: Java Tartglia & Dijjo Lima | Letters: Cory Petit These two issues are a brilliant romp through the espionage flavour of the X-Men world that Benjamin Percy has been shaping in the pages of Wolverine […]

Wolverine #17 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Adam Kubert | Colourists: Frank Martin & Espen Grundetjern | Letters: Cory Petit This issue is the definition of rollercoaster ride. From cover to cover it takes the reader on a ride to the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. This can be applied to both […]

Wolverine #14-#15 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Adam Kubert | Colourist: Frank Martin | Letters: Cory Petit In these two issues we were promised the resumption in rivalry between Wolverine and Solem. Instead we get Wolverine facing off against a new character with some ties to Solem which all need to be explained before we […]

Wolverine #13 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Scot Eaton | Inker: Oren Junior | Colourist: Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit The Hellfire Gala comes to the pages of Wolverine… and it’s not an easy read!

Wolverine #12 Writer: Benamin Percy | Artist: Scot Eaton | Inker: JP Mayer | Colourist: Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit Unfortunately this issue brings the current story arc to a climax in much the same fashion as the previous story arc. Lots of good set up, with well balanced action and consequence and then […]

Wolverine #11 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Scot Eaton | Inker: JP Mayer | Colourist: Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit So after the tenth issue milestone we pick up again with the vampire/Omega Red story line which could left behind with ‘X of Swords’ and then the recent Maverick arc. #5 was in fact […]

Wolverine #10 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Adam Kubert | Colourist: Frank Martin | Letters: Cory Petit Immediately this issue gets bonus points for picking up right where we left things in #9. Not even a fraction of a jump forward. The art helps sell this in a big way. The first page is a […]

Wolverine #9 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Adam Kubert | Colourist: Frank Martin | Letters: Cory Petit I just had a big, stupid smile on my face as I read this from cover to cover! Outside of just being a fun read, this issue actaully moves the story in interesting ways from where we left […]

Wolverine #8 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artists: Adam Kubert & Viktor Bogdanovic | Colourists: Antonio Fabela & Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit I actually really enjoyed this issue despite it not delivering on the cover image. As a sidenote, the cover must be the first time Adam Kubert has drawn Maverick since the 90’s […]

Wolverine #6 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Viktor Bogdanovic | Colourist: Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit Right away I found it very annoying this didn’t pick up immediately with the rainbow bridge reveal of last issue. That all probably happened in a different comic. Wolverine #6 is after all part 3 of a 22 […]

Wolverine Wednesday #38

I made the decision to review both issues of Wolverine that tie into X of Swords as one post, and as we are now going into a second lockdown I’m not sure how my LCS will be operating. So this week I will be catching up and giving a review of X-Force having recently picked […]

Wolverine #4 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Viktor Bogdanovic | Colourist: Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit When I first read this issue I found it a pretty solid read. But when it came to doing the review and I was flipping through it, it raised a few questions and is a tad confusing. Basically […]

Wolverine #2-#3 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Adam Kubert | Colourist: Frank Martin | Letters: Cory Petit It has been so long since I read the first issue of the new Wolverine ongoing perhaps I should have gone back and read it before these two issues arrived in the post!
